  • LETTER: Our community must be progressive

    Over the years, one of the worst things I’ve had to do was to lay off an employee. I have had to do that four different times and I very well know what a low and devastating feeling it is as an employee and as an employer.

    As an employer, it was my responsibility to find and provide the work and I was not able to do that. I let a lot of people down, including myself.

    I believe that every willing and able person in this country has the right and the responsibility and should have an opportunity to have work or a job.

  • A day of prayer

    Nearly one hundred souls assembled at the courthouse steps Thursday to take an hour out of their busy lives to publically pray together.

    John Rohr, cordinator for Spencer County’s National Day of Prayer Task Force, said that when he first helped organize the event several years ago “there were only six of us.”

    On Thursday, the large congregation of believers drew inquisitive looks from shopkeepers. Motorists slowed along Main Street – trying to make sense of the noon day crowd.

  • EDA provides some answers

    The Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority, Inc. (EDA) wants to clear a few things up.

    Since the announcement was made last month that a wet/dry petition would be circulated, EDA has been the center of much attention and questions. At their last regular meeting, more than a dozen citizens on both sides of the issue came out to speak – and many of them had questions that at the time went unanswered.

  • Women’s conference in Shelbyville

    Women across Kentucky will meet at First Baptist Church in Shelbyville for the 2009 Women of Worth Lifestyle Evangelism Conference on Tuesday, May 19.  This annual event is sponsored by the Kentucky Baptist Convention.

  • FROM THE WORD: Strong drink and the Christian

    As we look at God’s word on alcohol, turn to Isaiah 5:11-14. “Woe unto them that rise up early in the morning, that they may follow strong drink; that continue until night, till wine inflame them! And the harp, and the viol, the tabret, and pipe, and wine, are in their feasts: but they regard not the work of the Lord, neither consider the operation of his hands. Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished and their multitude dried up with thirst.
