    My parents purchased the house in 1976 and I do not believe that most of you reading this know the battle that my parents faced with the backing up of water in the drainage pipe that was placed on their property by Spencer Farm Service and the City of Taylorsville. Beware of what is placed on your property by others.

  • Celebrating our Independence

    Americans celebrated Independence Day on Tuesday. They did it with baseball games, cookouts, days at the lake or beach and fireworks.

  • New building coming


    Main Street is getting a new building.

    Local Attorney Charles Tichenor recently purchased the property between the County Judge-Executive’s Office and Valley Apparel and Signs (the old movie theatre) and has plans to build a new structure to house his law practice. For years, the site was the home of the old Western Auto store.

    “I purchased the two lots,” said Tichenor, who joked he was hoping to delay any announcement about his plans just to see how fantastic the rumors might grow.
