  • Community center gets land donation

    The effort to build a community center in Spencer County recently got a big push forward when the owners of Tanglewood Golf Course offered to donate land for the project.

    Richard Travelstead, president of Reaching Our Communities, said members of the organization are elated with the offer.

  • LETTER: Help needed with Sabbath question

    I would like to ask your religious writers and all ministers of the church to explain where in the Bible Christ changed the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day.

    In Hebrews 4:8, Paul wrote to the church: “For if Jesus had given them rest then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” 

    Now please read Hebrews 4:1-11.

  • Will you be a Family Day STAR?

    Seven Counties Services Regional Prevention Center

    When I was growing up, we knew dinner was on the table by 6 p.m.  We always ate together as a family every night (except when my brother had practice for basketball or baseball, my sister with orchestra and plays and me with track or softball).  Even with our extracurricular activities, we ate together more often than not.  It was a time of talking with each other about our day at school, work, friends, family etc.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Symptoms of the heart, part 4

    A friend of mine recently had a conversation with a young man regarding the college basketball coach, Rick Pitino, and the negative media attention he has received concerning allegations that have recently been brought against him.

    Maybe you have asked yourself, “How could he do such a thing?” After all, people of influence are held to a higher standard; they are expected to conquer the very desires that defeat us. And so the greater question would be: “How could anyone do such a thing?”

  • Lady Bears battle to beat Fort Knox

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team scored a thrilling come-from-behind victory over visiting Fort Knox last week.

    Falling behind 3-1 at the half, the Lady Bears mounted a comeback that began early in the second period when Tori Palmer scored a goal three minutes in to draw the Lady Bears to within one goal.

    Less than ten minutes later, Palmer would strike again, kicking in the tying goal to knot the score at 3-3. Palmer would complete the hat trick by scoring her third goal in the half four minutes later, giving the Lady Bears a 4-3 lead.

  • Receipts bear Jenkins' "distinctive signature"

    Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins said it doesn’t matter if a Kentucky Association of Counties investigation determined that his signature was on credit card receipts to a strip club and an escort service.

    “That’s KACo,” said Jenkins Thursday morning. “This has nothing to do with Spencer County.

  • An eye for beauty

    When Citizens Union Bank in Taylorsville was looking for shutterbugs to add local color to their newly renovated walls, they luckily stumbled across customer Stan Chesnut.

    Most may only know Chesnut as the lean, easy-going fella that runs Dollar General store in Settler’s Center. But there is something magical that happens during the early morning light before he arrives at work – Chesnut transforms into an avid landscape photographer. He just seems to have a knack for beautifully capturing fog-ladden brooks and sun-kissed meadows.

  • LETTER: Your turn to vote, don't blow it

    It is official, I understand, the petition has been certified and there will be a wet/dry vote this October.  It is about time the voters in this county are allowed to be heard!  Unfortunately, our county leaders, elected and otherwise, have a long history of denying the citizens of this county their right to vote.

    Don’t think this is true?  Let us take a stroll down memory lane.

  • Bears fall to West Jessamine

    Football is a game of inches, but in Friday night’s contest against West Jessamine, it was a couple of feet that proved the difference maker in the Bears’ 28-14 loss in Nicholasville.
