  • Pictured are the Spencer County Middle School September Grizzly Heroes: Amber Adcock, Tamara Humphrey, Paige Forberger, Hunter Brown, Josh McKinley, Bailey Bryant, Lauren Stevens, Daniel Cooper, Macy McGehee, Tyler Nichols, Jonathon Jones and Nathan Dillard.

  • Our current weather conditions demand that we rethink some of our fall chores. Fall lawn and tree fertilization should come later this year then normal because of the drought conditions. An application of high nitrogen now would only burn up what little green grass you may have and force trees to work more then they should under stressful conditions.

  • Hickstock is a music festival that gives back.

    This Saturday, musicians from Spencer and surrounding counties will converge on the stage at the fairgrounds for a day mixed with kicking back and kicking your heels up.

    While patrons and participants are having a good time, the gate admission will be used to help bring joy to the lives of other. All proceeds from Hickstock will be split between the Spcncer County Sheriff’s Department’s Shop With a Cop and the arts program at Spencer County schools.

  • For the first time since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on America, Spencer County High School’s senior class is planning to travel to New York City this spring for its senior trip.

    The Board of Education voted at its September meeting to allow the class to travel by chartered bus for an educational trip to New York April 25-29.

  • Sandi Deutsch is the Spencer County Farmers Market coordinator and has made many efforts to keep the farmers market up and going so that the residents of Spencer County can have fresh Kentucky grown fruits and vegetables that are beneficial to their health. Also, Sandi’s family host many field days on their farm to educate others on the proper way to produce fruits and vegetables.

  • Corey Monday knew his chances of graduating from Spencer County High School weren’t good. The 19-year- old found it hard to focus in a large classroom setting and was constantly getting sidetracked. He was easily swayed by peer influences and didn’t feel like he was getting the help he needed.

    The distractions made it hard for him to complete his work, much less excel. Eventually Monday recognized that he had to make a change or he was going to become a high school dropout statistic.

  • Over 200 guests patroned the second annual Progressive Dinner held Saturday, Sept. 25. Businesses along Taylorsville’s Main Street provided appetizers, soup, salad, dinner and dessert.

  • The third “Business Networking Afterhours” event was held by the Chamber of Commerce Sept. 14.

    This is a quarterly networking event the chamber has implemented.

    Bruce Deigl, owner of Taylorsville Machining LLC, and his wife Jan hosted the event.

    Chamber members said the event is a great way for business leaders to come together and network in a relaxed atmosphere without a structured program.

  • The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Association hosted Taylorsville Lake Clean Sweep Saturday.

    Over 200 participants hauled more than 47 cubic yards of garbage from the lake, and 15 from the river. Items included barrels and over 35 tires. Scouting troops from Louisville also participated again this year. This is the 12th annual clean up.

    Groups were also on the river this year, as far down stream as Bowman Lane. Canoe clubs from around the state converged on this area and were celebrating their efforts with a camp out on the river that night.
