  • His heart will go on...

     

    July 18 was a typical summer Saturday for Dylan Patterson. He had spent the day with his girlfriend and her family yard sale shopping, enjoying the pool and making plans to throw some burgers on the grill for dinner. He had no idea that he would be face to face with death and narrowly overcome it before the day was over.

  • Motorcyclist killed Sunday on US 31E

    A motorcyclist was killed in a three-vehicle accident Sunday on US 31E in Spencer County shortly after 2 p.m.

    According to the Kentucky State Police, 57-year-old Eduard I. Yerusskiy of Louisville, was operating a 2012 Yamaha motorcycle when he failed to negotiate a curve, causing him to collide head on with a 2009 Buick SUV driven by Laura Segars, 42, also of Louisville.

  • Court split on tax hikes

    The Spencer County Fiscal Court appears split when it comes to potentially raising the property tax rates, and will likely have to make that decision at their next meeting.

    At Monday’s meeting, Judge-Executive John Riley opened the floor for discussion on the tax rate, which currently stands at 8.8 cents per $100 of assessed property value. It’s the same rate on motor vehicles and watercraft. Meanwhile, property tax rates set by counties across the state are generally higher, leading to some discussion that a small hike would not be out of line.

  • Parents working to revamp Project Graduation

    A few parents of Spencer County High School seniors are working hard to save the tradition of Project Graduation, despite waning parent and community support.

    Project Graduation is an outside booster event generally organized by class parents, students and volunteers that provides graduates with a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment on graduation night. The night is filled with fun, food and prizes.
