  • Petitioning for alcohol sales

    Wet versus dry – the issue has not been voted on in more than 30 years, but residents may soon be able to voice their opinion on the sale of alcohol in Spencer County if enough signatures are collected on a petition being introduced today.

  • Kentucky-at-Euclid: Todd and Big Blue Nation got their man

    John Calipari. Big Blue Nation got its man. The worship service has begun.

    President Lee Todd got his man too and reminded us again about separation of church and State.

    Church is the other side of Euclid Avenue and is tithe-exempt from State.

    Whether Todd sold the University’s academic soul for a ball coach remains to be seen.

    Mitch Barnhart got his man also. A hire that probably saved his job. Yet, his Billy Clyde fiasco should cost him a pay cut.

  • After so much stress on plants, consider spring fertilization

    I have long been taught that fall fertilization is preferred over spring fertilization for many plants, but there are some exceptions.  We had a tough 2008 growing season with late summer drought and a windstorm that only added insult to injury.  Add ice and a generally windy winter and some plants are in need of a little energy boost.  Summer drought and early fall leaf drop (or the severe desiccation that many deciduous plants experience from the wind storm) means that stored energy may be low.

  • Riley wants a review of county occupational tax

    Elk Creek Magistrate John Riley asked that fiscal court review the county’s budget at the April 20 meeting to see if the occupational tax could be lowered.

    “In 2007, we found ourselves in a very different budget crisis,” said Riley. “We were past the deadline to impose an insurance premium tax to get us out of the hole we were in. At that point, our only option was an occupational tax.”

  • Old Taylorsville may become a boom town

     Many times you hear Spencer County referred to as a “bedroom community” because so many people who live here work in Louisville, Shelbyville or elsewhere. These commuters return to their bedrooms in Spencer, sack out for the night, and head to work again the next day.

    A major reason for this is, of course, that Spencer County doesn’t have enough large employers.

  • Field of dreams: Grizzlies grab wins on new playing turf

    Hours before the first pitch, coaches and volunteers of the Spencer County Middle School baseball team were busy trying to prep a field that had been soaked by two inches of rain just a little more than 24 hours before.

    But by game time, the field was playable and those who wandered in early got to see an example of the work and dedication that made the day possible in the first place.

    Two years ago, the middle school did not have a baseball program, and now they’ve got a winning product on the field, and just as importantly, a winning field to call their own.

  • Habitat success result of volunteer efforts and donations

    Thanks to the individuals and businesses that have devoted time and given donations to make our local Habitat a success story. Not only have we been able to build a home, locally - a tithe has been sent to Latin America where a second home was built, through the generosity of Spencer Countians! Last month’s Habitat Board meeting went high-tech and video-conferenced with the Habitat affiliate, in Honduras, where the home was built. They were so appreciative of the kindness shown by our County.
