  • LETTER: 'Appaled' at local government

    After moving to Taylorsville less than three years ago, I have had my eyes opened wide to the way our local government operates. Like many of you, I was not an active participant in politics, short of browsing The Courier Journal to see where each candidate stood on the issues so that I could make a somewhat-informed choice on election day.

  • LETTER: County improvements should be highlighted

    For the past 18 months, I have watched our Spencer County Judge-Executive Bill Karrer work at his job way beyond 40 hours a week. This is not just a job for him, but a passion to do what is right for the taxpayers of Spencer County. He is a good man. He uses an abundance of honesty, integrity, professionalism and a careful thought process in the day-to-day business that is Spencer County. Unfortunately, many of the wonderful improvements made in the county in the past year have not been reported. They have been over-shadowed.

  • LETTER: Former VFW member will be missed

    We at the VFW Post 11426 in Taylorsville would like to thank the Salt River Board of Directors and employees for their generous donation to the VFW in loving memory of Darwin Thomas.
    We also want to thank the manager, Mr. Hicks, for his personal donation in memory of Darwin Thomas.
    Darwin was a great WWII veteran who helped give out Buddy Poppy’s any time he could. He worked for the VFW in many ways. He always attended the meetings and was a great voting member for the good of the Order.

  • LETTER: 'Get to know your neighbors before you judge them'

    This letter is in response to some comments made by Joyce Nalley in the June 13 edition of the paper under the article titled, “City goes against county, passes zoning repeal.”
    My home is Taylorsville Place Apartments, and I was the first resident to move in last August. I have enjoyed living here and I have really great neighbors. Ms. Nalley stated in the article that if they built more apartments, it would attract less than upstanding residents. No matter where you live you could have a bad resident, it’s not just these apartments.

  • LETTER: Thank you from the Kentucky Gourd Society

    The Kentucky Gourd Society thanks everyone for their time and energy in getting downtown Taylorsville ready for the Kentucky Gourd Show. A lot of effort goes into getting a show ready for the public. The show visitors always shop in downtown Taylorsville, eat at our food places, stay in our hotels and camp at our facilities.
    As always, they are so complimentary of our town and folks that live here that  make them feel welcomed.

  • Strive toward trash-free county

    You will read this article, if you are quick to buy your Spencer Magnet, on Wednesday, June 27. This means we are a week into our official summer season, which means we are in the middle of the week set for our non-profit groups who wish to work in the Summer Roadside Litter Abatement Program to come in and sign up, get road assignments and get the supplies they need to collect the litter.

  • Puppet time with Aretta

     

    During the Spencer County Public Library’s summer reading program on June 12, Aretta told the Mexican tale about an ant who finds his confidence. At the end, all the children were given simple ant puppets and sang ‘The Ants Go Marching.’ The story introduced many Spanish words to the children.

  • American Red Cross issues emergency call for blood donors

    Want to donate?
    A blood drive is scheduled for Tuesday from 2 to 7 p.m. at the First Baptist Church fellowship hall.

    The American Red Cross blood supply has reached emergency levels with 50,000 fewer donations than expected in June, according to a news release. This shortfall leaves the Red Cross with half the readily available blood products on hand now than this time last year.
