  • Volunteers pick up pace on horse trail repair

    Volunteers and organizers hoping to speed up the pace of horse-related tourism in Spencer County are galloping forward even if it is the middle of winter.

    A meeting scheduled for Thursday evening at the Fiscal Court meeting room at 6:30 p.m. will lay out detailed plans for the work days at the state park horse trails that are scheduled for this weekend, weather permitting. Those work days will begin at 9 a.m., with volunteers being asked to park and meet near the horse trails area of the Taylorsville Lake State Park.

  • Mold estimate is under 20K

    Remediation work on the mold in the sheriff’s office could begin soon now that the county has received an estimate on the work that came in under the $20,000 threshold that would have required formal bids.

    Judge-Executive John Riley shared the estimate with magistrates during last week’s fiscal court meeting and sought approval to move forward. The estimate for remediation, which could include removing drywall, flooring, ceiling tiles and other materials impacted by mold, is $19,377.

  • Clapton, the art collector

    The world’s most famous living guitarist, Eric Clapton, has profited from his investments in the art world. Clapton sold (through Christie’s Auctions) the last of the three abstract paintings from artist Gerhard Richters that he picked up in a single lot, in 2001, for $3.4 million.

    Those three works reaped a total of $77.3 million. Clapton netted a profit of $74.1 million! Richter’s decorative abstract paintings, of which there are hundreds, have become status symbols among the world’s super rich.

  • ACLU files suit to target state’s new abortion law

    The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a federal lawsuit aimed at blocking a new Kentucky abortion law that would require doctors providing abortions to first perform an ultrasound of the fetus and try to show and describe the image to the patient — even if she objects.

    The measure, House Bill 2, was approved Saturday by the Kentucky General Assembly with an emergency clause that allowed Gov. Matt Bevin to sign it into law immediately.

  • From our readers - Training still encouraged if Kentucky loosens firearms laws

    Over the next few weeks, many discussions will be had with firearms instructors and citizens across Kentucky regarding constitutional carry.  As you may know Kentucky legislatures have SB7 almost ready to be brought to a  vote. This bill does not change current law of where you can carry only how  you can carry.

    Currently in the State of KY, it is legal to open carry without permit at  the age of 18. Many citizens do at times.  The new law, if passed, would  allow a person to conceal the firearm from view.

  • Whining won’t stop Trump

    Come Friday, Donald J. Trump will be sworn in as the 45th President of the United States of America - and there is nothing you or anyone else can do about it.

    That’s not written as a gloat. I’ve never been a Trumpster and I had to eat a plate of deep fried crow in November because I never thought he’d actually win the election to begin with. But I can’t say I’m disappointed with the outcome, even though his impending presidency seems to have divided this country even more than the election.
