  • What's Happening: Spencer County's community calendar

    Weather siren testing

    Spencer County Emergency Management would like to remind residents that the emergency weather sirens will be tested at noon the third Wednesday of each month. If the siren sounds at any other time, it is to provide residents warning of a tornado spotted in the area.

  • Taking us back to Bizzaro World

    Back to Bizzaro World, with Rick and Vick. Confessions, concessions, remorse and apologies.

    Never mind. Soon enough a new wave of stupidity-turned-lawyer spin will move Rick Pitino and Michael Vick names off front pages, off ESPN’s screen roll and off a Letterman punch line list.

    Troubling, Pitino’s link to an abortion, but I am not among those stepping onto ivory tower balconies calling for Pitino to resign, be fired or hanged in effigy. He knows his demons. We know ours.

  • Church happenings

    Ice cream social at Risen Lord

    The community is invited to a free ice cream social with a band at Risen Lord Church on August 22 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.  Bring a lawn chair and your sweet tooth for fun and fellowship.  Come and enjoy our Moon Walk Inflatible, play ground, volleyball, corn hole, fooseball, basketball, and ping pong. The church is located at 5138 Taylorsville Road near the Elk Creek Restaurant. For information contact Bill Neal at 502-817-7246.

  • LETTER: Democracy at work

    Do you feel it in the air? Can you smell it? Most of all can you hear it? 

  • Online Trading Post is open for agribusiness

    Over the past couple of years, the Spencer County Extension Service has sponsored the Spencer Co. Trading Post, an online classified system for Agricultural and Horticultural products and services.  But recent changes to our website forced me to shut the Trading Post down until upgrades to the listing service could be made.

    After a few months with the Trading Post closed, I’m glad to say that it is now re-opened.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Symptoms of the heart, part 2

    “Take two pills and call me in the morning.”

    At times, the heart may produce symptoms of a possible problem that requires immediate medical attention while at other times produce mild symptoms that cause no need for concern at all. For example, a person that is relaxing in a lazy chair may need to consult a medical professional should his heart begin to accelerate at great speed without cause. On the other hand, someone who has been running a marathon would not be as concerned with a higher heart-rate.

  • LETTER: How about some honest journalism?

    I am amazed you printed Carl Turner’s letter in last week’s Magnet. I began becoming politically aware more than twenty years ago. I’ll give an example from a different newspaper.

    “Police gun down man who allegedly shot officer.”

  • Fire district files complaints

    The Spencer County Fire Protection District has called for further review by city and county leaders into their contracted service with dispatch.

  • SCORE offers help for Spencer County businesses

    Thinking of jumping into the shark-infested waters known at entrepreneurialism? Best not to take that leap with out a buddy swimmer watching your back.

    That is what the volunteers at SCORE: Counselors to America’s Small Business in Louisville can provide – someone to look out for small business owners and possibly keep them from drowning.

    “Ninety-nine percent of the business in this country is entrepreneurial. They represent the core of economic activity in a community,” said Joe Hatfield, chairman of the Louisville chapter of SCORE.

  • Citizens, leaders show support for community center

    The possibility of constructing a community center spurred over 100 local residents and county officials to attend last Tuesday night’s public form. Some had questions, a few had doubts, but over-whelming those who spoke voiced their support of the concept.

    “I’m pretty excited about this,” said Taylorsville Mayor Don Pay. “When you ask people what they want, always at the top of the list is a community center.”
