  • Lessons learned from brussel sprouts

    Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.

  • Three good stream floats for smallmouth bass

    Fishing for many species slows in the daytime hours during the heat of summer, but smallmouth bass who inhabit Kentucky streams bite willingly even on the hottest days.

    Kentuckians who enjoy canoeing or kayaking are lucky to live in a state with bountiful amounts of cool, flowing water that hold smallmouth bass. It is hard to beat a summer day spent paddling a tree canopied Kentucky stream, navigating stream drops and catching smallmouth after smallmouth.

  • From shock to frenzy

  • Taxpayers deserve better

    Spencer Magnet Editorial

    When Spencer County Sheriff Buddy Stump called a press conference in April to announce his office would no longer be offering 24/7 patrols following a vote by the fiscal court to cut his payroll budget by nearly $100,000, he refused to give details about his schedule. Understandably, he wanted to keep those details under wraps so as not to provide a green light to criminals.

  • New bridge dedication to be held Thursday

     

    All that was left of the Blue Bridge Monday afternoon was a large pile of twisted steel resting beside the road on the south side of the Salt River.

    Crews have completed the destruction of the bridge, constructed in 1932, as the new concrete span is now in full use.

    The new bridge will be named to honor former Spencer County Judge-Executive C.L. Glasscock during a dedication ceremony scheduled for this Thursday at 1:30 p.m. at the First Baptist Church in Taylorsville.

  • Government control is out of control

    JIM WATERS

    Are Washington’s policies these days regarding everything from bathrooms to broadband intentionally designed to systematically trash the constitutionally protected power of states, local governments and even the people themselves?  
    Maybe. Maybe not.

    Intentions aside, those are the results.
