    The Taylorsville square will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland this Saturday as the residents gather for the 2010 Christmas on Main Street festival.

  • Lady Bears fall short: drop first four games of season

    The Spencer County Lady Bears are off to a rough start, dropping their first four games of the season, three of them at home.

    The girls got their season underway by hosting Bardstown last Tuesday night and fell, 58-46. They hit the court two nights later when they hosted Western Hills, and dropped a close 53-50 contest  in a game that came down to the wire.

  • EDITORIAL: Legislators should review state retirement system

    Regardless of their merit, some bills proposed in the General Assembly never receive serious discussion or consideration.

    One overlooked measure from the 2010 legislative session has been refiled and deserves consideration and passage. It deals with state pensions for future legislators.

  • Revard case inching slowly toward trial

    While a trial date may be shortly forthcoming in the Commonwealth’s murder case against Raymond Revard Jr., both sides are standing strong in their respective beliefs of guilt or innocence of the accused.

    Revard, who is charged with murder in the 2009 shooting death of his wife, Lea Revard, was present in Spencer County Circuit Court last Thursday as attorneys debated various pre-trial issues before Judge Charles R. Hickman.

  • LETTER TO EDITOR: Disputes business figures

    Editor:

    In the Spencer Magnet Nov. 10, there was an article about services offered by the EDA.

    In the article it was claimed in the last two years there were 681 new businesses in Spencer County with a loss of 105 so that leaves 576 in business. I have given that some thought and find that hard to believe so I began checking.

    I asked EDA for a list and they said they don’t have a list and referred me to the Occupational License Administration. I was told I could download the list and did so. Then I started detailing it out and here is what I found.

  • DEBT DILEMMA: County loan pay-off: Some question, others praise

    The current version of Spencer County Fiscal Court voted Monday to pay off a large chunk of debt before its election-altered counterpart takes office next year, but the decision was hardly welcomed by everyone in attendance.

    The court by a 3-2 verdict approved a motion to pay off $505,866 owed on debt and leases from the general operating fund before the end of the year, a move which made sense to some, but not to others.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Be incorruptible in the name of Jesus

    On Sunday, Nov. 14, we went to a Russel Ray Fryman Day at Cynthiana. Russell Ray is one of our lay mission team members. What an inspiration he is. He would bring his guitar and sing, and he would get so happy he would preach a little too.

    My favorite song he would sing was, “I Feel Good.”

    The chorus went like this: “I feel good just to know I’ve been redeemed. It makes me feel good.”
