  • 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.

  • Ali vs. Rocky

    The Greatest!

    That’s the self-imposed title Muhammad Ali gave himself early in his career, and the same title most pundits have used to describe him over the past several days in the wake of his death Friday at the age of 74.

    Ali was indeed one of the greatest to ever step into the ring. He was pure showman, able to capture and keep an audience’s attention, and he introduced a fresh, new boastfulness into the world of sports. We can debate about whether that was good or bad, but Ali made it fun.
