  • “Tim Tebow Bill” passes House

    On March 7, the Kentucky House of Representatives passed House Bill 58, informally dubbed the ‘Tim Tebow’ bill. If signed into law, House Bill 58 would allow homeschool students to participate in public school extracurricular activities for the school in their respective district.

  • Girl Scout Troop 1199

     

    The members of Girl Scout Troop 1199 had the privilege to be Kentucky State Representive James Tipton’s personal pages for the General Assembly Session recently. The girls were given an historic tour of the Capitol, and Tipton spent some time talking to the girls about Kentucky’s most famous leaders. Later during the day, State Senator Jimmy Higdon talked to the troop about the pathway to becoming a State Senator.

  • From our readers - Viewpoints on issues facing Spencer County

    This is a copy of a message I sent to Judge Riley and all of the Spencer County magistrates who have public email addresses.  (Squire Rogers has no email address available.  Do you, my fellow citizens, agree or disagree?  

    Either way, let your voices be heard by contacting your magistrates or judge, or by attending a fiscal court meeting.

    Here is my opinion on various issues facing the county:

  • From our readers - Animal Shelter is not poorly run

    As director of the Spencer County Animal Shelter in Taylorsville, I would like to emphasize that the shelter report that aired on WAVE 3 last week was not to show that we have a poorly run shelter: indeed, it was quite the opposite and probably the reason there wasn’t more coverage about our shelter. Being listed as one of the neediest shelters in Kentucky means just that: we NEED more to run a shelter that adheres more closely to state shelter regulations. If you watched closely, our shelter looked better than any other shelter in the news segment.
     

  • March Madness is here!

    Despite the snow flurries and the brief return to winter weather, this is a great week in Kentucky. It’s March Madness and this special time of the year offers a brief respite from all the political talk and hate and debate that seems to dominate the airwaves and social media these days.

  • Pace picks up in House

    We are in the final stretch of the Regular Session and the House has been hard at work to better Kentucky, not only on bills from our own chamber, but reviewing Senate bills as well. With just a few legislative days remaining, the brisk pace can be expected right up until the clock runs out. We passed several measures this week, dealing with multiple issues facing the Commonwealth.   

  • Will Lady Bears rise continue?

     

    When Brian Glass inquired about the opening for the head softball coach at Spencer County High School, just about every question he asked had a positive answer.

    He wanted to know about the players he would be inheriting. He was told that most of the girls off last year’s 22-15 team would be returning, a year-older and ready to build off last year’s success.

  • Bears fielding new team after losing 10 seniors

     

    The Spencer County High School baseball team will surely not face any obstacle on the field tougher than the one they’ve endured recently with the loss of a teammate.

    Junior Joseph Sheeley was killed in a car accident earlier this month and as the team prepared the new season, they had to lay down their bats and gloves and mourn the loss of the popular teammate and classmate. Such a traumatic event can be tough, but it can also bring a team closer together.
