  • Leaking water tower may need to be replaced


    The City of Taylorsville may have a big-ticket expense to deal with following news that a water tank on Possum Ridge has been leaking and may need to be replaced.

    Fans of Clint Eastwood may recognize that phrase, uttered by the actor when he played a combat-toughened Marine sergeant in the movie, “Heartbreak Ridge.”

    It’s an unofficial slogan of the USMC designed to inspire problem solving under less-than-ideal conditions.

    What does it mean to be a retired educator? A person who volunteers countless hours to make our community a better place to live. A person, through his/her pension who contributes thousands of dollars in taxes and spends their money to support local businesses. A person who has made a difference in the lives of his/her former students. A person who never quits caring about the well-being of others.

  • Right to work in KY

    Two policies impacted by state ballot initiatives and the presidential election itself that could also directly affect Kentuckians involve tobacco and right-to-work.

    Kentucky stood still while several states, including neighboring Indiana and West Virginia, moved forward with right-to-work policies, which protect employees from being forced to pay union dues in order to keep their jobs.
