  • The chance to learn from a legend

    Would you spend a weekend learning to drive a race car from a legend like Richard Petty?

    Of course you would.

    Many locals and students from Spencer County Martial Arts, owned by Spencer County resident Scott Smith, spent this weekend training with a martial arts legend in Gracie Jiu Jitsu. That is none other than Relson Gracie (pronounced Helson Gracie).

  • FROM THE WORD: Get your eyes off money

    1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.

    As we look at what Paul wrote to Timothy, a young preacher, Paul said that the root of all evil was the love of money. Just take a good look at this last Presidential election. When it all boiled down to just one thing – money. It seemed nothing else mattered.

  • Picking burley tobacco for 2009

    When it comes to diseases in burley tobacco, black shank ranks right up there at the top of the list. Losses to black shank are higher each year than all other past problems combined. During the 2008 season, statewide losses to black shank were high, but did not reach the levels of 2007. Part of the reason for that was the widespread use of resistant varieties across Kentucky.

  • Help with home heating

     

    The cost of home heating is a problem for many low-income Kentuckians. Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency, Inc. may be able to help.

  • LETTER: The deceptive cost of liberal socialism

    I was talking to Phyllis Oliver recently and the conversation dealt with her intese frustration and aggravation of all the taxes she is forced to pay.

    A few hours later, Mrs. Oliver made a motion at the Spencer County School Board special tax rate meeting to raise the school tax rate by 4 percent.

    Oliver is a school board member, you see. Why would she act in this illogical manner? I believe she suffers from a condition affecting her perception of reality and logic. It is called socialism.

  • LETTER: Now that’s a burger

    Everyone loves a dollar burger and no-one is more excited about our county’s growth and prosperity than yours truly. I wanted to take a moment, however, to encourage you to remember a locally created cheeseburger worthy of Food Network coverage. These burgers have been hand patted into many of the hearts of our county’s finest for nine strong years. Citizens of Taylorsville, if you have not had the pleasure, please make a point to visit L & S Diner and enjoy what could be one of the nation’s premier burgers.

  • Palmer Road access for Taylorsville Lake now open

    The Palmer Road access to the Salt River Bottoms on the Taylorsville Lake Wildlife Management Area (WMA) is now vastly improved because of work recently conducted by the Engineering Division of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources.

    “The Engineering Division upgraded Palmer Road to the old River Road along Salt River,” said Bill Mitchell, manager of Taylorsville Lake WMA for Kentucky Fish and Wildlife. “They also built a 10-car parking lot at the bottom of the hill near Salt River.”

  • Heads and Tails - Chapter 9

     1997 – Not the 21st century, but close! At least everything felt familiar. For one, our computer was back. Not the computer I was accustomed to, but a late ‘90s model. I had to dial a phone number so I could connect to the Internet. Our TV included more channels and a remote control. Also, just by turning it on, we knew all the news all around the world in just a matter of minutes.
