  • LETTER: Alcohol costs outweigh benefits

    I located here thirteen years ago from a wet county. Liquor stores are prominent. Beer and wine are now being sold in some grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores and convenient marts.

    I am now hearing the same promotional message that I heard at our town’s council meetings, “we need the money”. It was all about the money regardless of what it will do to some people morally.

  • LETTER: In support of Williams
  • LETTER: “Dry county is no safer”

    I am for Spencer County going wet. If they ever get the lodge at the lake going it will be dependant on alcohol-by-the-drink. The golf course would do much better if it were wet. If the non-drinkers think there is very little alcohol consumed in Spencer County, they would be surprised to know the reality of it. Many that enjoy a drink at home stock up on what they like. The others make small purchases and then when they run out, drive drunk to buy more and drink on the way home.

  • Youth football camp

    Spencer County Youth Football Association will be hosting the 2009 Spring Football and Cheerleading Camp Saturday  beginning at 2 p.m at the Taylorsville Elementary School field.

    All youth in Spencer County are invited to attend the Spring Football and Cheerleading Camp for the Spencer County Stallions’ upcoming 2009 season.  This event is free to all Spencer County youth.

    There are 4 levels of competition:

    • Mighty Mite age 5-7

    • Pee Wee age 8-9

    • Juniors age 10-11

    • Seniors age 12-13

  • Softball team 2-5 for season

    The Spencer County Lady Bears fell to 2-5 on the season after dropping three games in a tournament at West Jessamine over the weekend.

    The girls battled in the first two games, losing 3-0 to Danville and 3-1 to John Hardin, before dropping a 10-0 decision to Woodford County to close the weekend.

    The girls were scheduled to be back in action on Tuesday at home against Eminence and will travel to Shelby County today for a game. They have a double-header scheduled against Frankfort on the road Friday and will be at Bardstown next Tuesday.

  • Welcome to the Calipari, UK honeymoon

     

    The Coming of Calipari to University of Kentucky-at-Euclid fanaticals has been pretty as dogwood and sweet as honeysuckle. All good stuff, right?

    The honeymoon so far, is all aces.

    This week is still basketball season, isn’t it? So, Wildcat fans, pull on your swoon CalipariNation tee-shirts and revel on ...

  • Inghram indicted for pointing gun at police

    Spencer County’s grand jury has indicted Ronald Inghram on two counts of wanton endangerment following an incident in February when he allegedly pointed a deer rifle at police.

    Inghram, of 3616 Ashes Creek Road, faces a total of four felony indictments, including theft of a firearm and possession of firearm by a convicted felon.

  • Alcohol petition draws concerns

    Battle lines are just beginning to form as supporters and opponents claim their side in the verbal grabble over legalizing alcohol sales in Spencer County.

    At Monday morning’s fiscal court meeting, several preachers stepped down from their pulpits and petitioned magistrates in person to see their side of the issue.

    “Since some magistrates have put their name on the list of supporters, I think it is appropriate that we address the court,” said Jeff McCarty, Spencer County resident and pastor of Fisherville Baptist.

  • LETTER: 10-year-old says “beer is bad”

    I have been looking on the road. Have you? There are beer cans.

    I am 10 years old and I don’t like seeing beer cans everywhere. It doesn’t look good at all. Do know when I get older the earth is going to be a bad place.

    Also, people that drink have bad wrecks. You can die and have bad diseases.

    I know it is hard for some people to stop, but buy something other than beer.
