  • Main Street hits a funding pothole

    Main Street’s second renovation phase has been delayed temporarily by the state as officials seek to use stimulus funding instead of Kentucky transportation money, Main Street Chairman John Shircliffe told city commissioners last Tuesday.

  • Judge rules on charter petition

    The charter government petition is valid, said Judge Charles Hickman in a ruling filed last Thursday.

    The Spencer County Circuit Court opinion comes nearly a year and a half after the City of Taylorsville first asked for legal scrutiny of the document. In February 2008, the city announced they would be filing for a declaration of rights and named Spencer County Fiscal Court as the defendant.

  • Trailblazers dominate

    May 30 and May 31 the Spencer County 4-H Horse Club, the “Trailblazers”, attended the District 3 Horse Show at Lakeside Arena in Frankfort. District is a regional pre-qualifying competition for the 4-H State Horse Show in July.

    The kids really started the weekend off with a bang, with Kelsey Bishop winning her first two classes on Saturday and taking home the Division I Pleasure High Point Award.

  • LETTER: Guilty before proof shown

    I thought our system is innocent until proven guilty. David Jenkins said he was not in or near the places the credit card charges were made that he is contesting. It tells me a lot about a person that wants to publicly condemn someone before all the facts are in. I have to question the reason that person is doing that, for what gain are they doing it. Do they have proof that no one knows about. I certainly hope people like that don’t serve on jury duty. The poor defendant would be charged guilty before the trial.

  • Spencer County Fair kicks off this Friday

    This year’s concert performance for the Spencer County Fair will bring home a Taylorsville native from the recording studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

    J.D. Shelburne will return to perform at the Spencer County Fair this Friday.

  • Faith for today: Attending church

    Is it possible to be a Christian and yet not go to church? That seems to be one of the most common questions I hear in Spencer Co. I hope you can handle frankness because space does not allow easing into the subject. I’ll answer that question in stages. First, the New Testament never considers the possibility that someone could be devoted to Jesus and yet have little or no devotion to Jesus’ other followers.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: When a celebrity dies

    Unless you have been completely shut off from the outside world in the last few weeks, you have probably heard about the passing of a famous entertainer and are aware of the impact it made on the world.  But Michael Jackson is not the only person to have recently expired from life; Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays and dozens of other semi-famous people have passed on from this life too.  So why has the media given so much attention to him?

  • PUBLIC RECORD: District Court

    The Honorable Judge Donna Dutton presided over the following cases in District Court on May 29, 2009

    Traffic:

    Deborah L. Cline. Failure of owner to maintain required insurance/security, first offense. $500 fine plus $143 court costs.

    Cecil Gibbs. Operating a motor vehicle under the influence of alcohol/drugs, .08 second offense. Sentenced to 7 days, credit for time served, enroll in multiple offender program, 12 month suspension of operator’s license, $878 fine and court costs. Operating on suspended/revoked operator’s license. Guilty.

  • Trails Day more than horsing around

    Trail riders are not typically seen as the competitive sort.

    Just imagine horse-owners jockeying for position along a narrow, wooden path – each trying to be the first one to the end. Most view trail riding as a more leisurely, and some would even call it a passive recreational pastime.
