  • SWEET . . . Date finally set for tricks and treats

    The tricky details of Taylorsville’s Halloween on Main Street have finally been decided.

    The event’s date—which has been under question for the past several weeks—has been determined by the Taylorsville City Commission as Oct. 30. Generally the yearly kid-friendly gathering is held Oct. 31 but the event’s sponsors were forced to rethink the date after concerns were raised about Halloween falling on a Sunday this year.

  • PHOTO: Handmade with love

    Spencer County Preschool student Dawson Barr works on making hand print art Tuesday in Lisa Ingram’s class. The AM and PM preschool classes made the hand prints in honor of grandparent’s day, which the preschool is celebrating today and Thursday.

  • LETTER: Vote 'prayerfully'

    Working with military and veterans organizations, I have learned a great deal about leadership, dedication, integrity, and commitment. Words such as duty, respect, honor, courage, and selfless service define what these men and women represent.

    What we need in our government today are men and women who not only believe in these qualities but live them.

  • Two visions for the future

    Challenger for Spencer County Judge Executive Bill Karrer-R says a community center could potentially be realized in the next four years, if private partnerships are forged to help offset large operational expenses for the recreational facility.

    Incumbent Judge Executive David Jenkins-D says voters should decide the contentious issue of a city-county merger if a court ruling allows the issue to advance.

  • Thread and Thimble

    Thread and Thimble is an informal sewing club formed as an off-shoot of the quilting clubs of the Spencer County Homemakers. It has evolved into a way for the members to share their knowledge and support one another with their friendship.

    “It started out as a few of us ladies wanted to expand our sewing abilities,” said club president Pat Douglas. “We’ve come a long way.”

  • KY LOTTO: 'Somebody's gotta win'

    Are you the lucky winner of $52,000? You could be if you purchased a Win for Life Kentucky Lottery ticket at Marrowbone Community Market prior to the Aug. 28 drawing.

    Manager Sidharth Rai said that he decided to post signs alerting customers to “check your tickets today” after going more than a month with no one claiming the prize.

    Customers of the market, formerly known as Riverbend, have obliged, but little results.

  • HOMECOMING 2010: Bears can't claw back

    Turnovers, costly mistakes, giving up big plays and falling behind quickly have all played a role in each of the Bears’ seven losses this season. Such was the case again Friday night as the Bears fell 20-14 to visiting Western Hills during homecoming. The Bears may look back at the second half of this game as the turning point in the season.

    After falling behind 20-0, the Bears clawed back and played their best football of the season in the second half and hopefully set the tone for their two remaining district games.

  • Tree seeds need propagating

    Some plants are prolific; some are not. Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk; and you can just walk past some hairy cress and millions of seed burst forth from the draft! Woody plants seem to be a bit more elusive.

    I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone or an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath the canopy. Starting woody plants from seed can be a bit more tricky.
