  • One chicken for every lot?

    Spencer County is not the city. In fact, most people who have chosen to move to Spencer County have fled the noise, the crowds, the congestion and the restrictive tentacles of metro government explicity because it is NOT the city.

    Imagine their surprise then, when learning that in this rural, country atmosphere, bureaucrats have moved to limit homeowners to having just one chicken per acre.

    We realize that doesn’t immediately impact most residents. The only chicken most of us own rests frozen in the freezer.

  • Reverence delivered in a bread truck

    The most inspiring message I witnessed during last Thursday’s National Day of Prayer observance in downtown Taylorsville did not come from a song, a proclamation, or even one of the prayers delivered by one of several local ministers.

    Instead, in came in the form of a Sara Lee bread truck. The driver was no doubt in the middle of a busy day on a busy route, but as he neared the courthouse and saw dozens of people out front, heads bowed in prayer, he stopped the truck and he waited.

  • Education - SCES Chorus performs at Trills & Thrills Festival

  • Local observance of National Day of Prayer

     

    Tens of thousands of prayer events are planned across the country on Thursday May 7, 2015, to honor the annual National Day of Prayer. In churches, parks and on courthouse steps, citizens will be praying for our nation, government leaders, media, military, schools, churches, businesses and families.

  • Fitting it back together

    Everybody’s done it from time to time, you drop that plate or glass and suddenly you hear that awful crash. What was once whole, useful and maybe even pretty, now lies broken and shattered on the ground. What a mess!

    We bought this beautiful handmade vase once, and before we even got it home it was in two or three pieces. I did my best to glue the pieces in place, but you can tell. I can see it right now from my desk. We keep the unbroken side turned out, but turn it just a little and you can’t miss the cracks.

  • Chosen by Jesus

    Read John 15: 12-17

    Let me ask you a question: Can a person have absolute assurance that their sins are forgiven, that they are a child of

    God, and that heaven is their home when they die? Spend a moment and think about that question and about your spiritual journey.

    There are two basic ways that people try to get to heaven.

  • Raising chickens a growing trend in Spencer Co.

     

    As concern throughout the nation mounts about hormones and antibiotics in our food, people are turning more and more to locally-grown produce and meat. One way that people can do this is to buy locally grown eggs or keep their own hens to have fresh eggs.

    Jennifer Turner, a Spencer County resident, started with about a dozen chickens and learned some best practices along the way.

  • Attorney charged with vote fraud

    A local attorney is facing a single felony count of wrongfully registering to vote following his arrest last month.

    Jim Hodge, whose address on court records is listed as being in Jeffersontown, was charged in April with wrongful registration for voting in elections in Spencer County during the 2014 May primary and 2014 general election. James Scott, with the Attorney General’s Office, made the arrest at Hodge’s home at 9904 Wynnbrooke Circle in Jefferson County.

  • Doctor’s office closes with little notice; sale pending

    Just days after posting a “closed” sign on the front door of his Taylorsville office, Dr. Thomas Crain said he plans to remain open while working out a deal to sell the practice he’s operated for 23 years.

    A few days later, he said he would resume seeing patients as usual as part of a transition to new owners.
