  • LETTER: Protecting students at SCMS

    The posted speed limit on the school grounds is 10 mph; yet, everyday that I drop my 8th grader off in the morning, I find reckless drivers failing to obey the law. Would it be too much to ask our tax-payer funded education personnel and education personnel and Taylorsville officers to monitor, and enforce, the law so that our most precious resources (our Spencer county students) remain safe?

  • LETTER: Making a difference

    Hundreds of thousands of young Americans are serving our military to preserve our way of life, and yet fewer and fewer of our citizens are participating in our democracy. November 2 is the General Election – a day when Kentuckians will be selecting a new U.S. Senator, our members of the U.S. House of Representatives plus many state legislators and local officials.

    Members of Spencer County Farm Bureau hope every voter will make their voices heard by casting informed votes for our government leaders.

  • LETTER: Catholic lot closed Saturday

    We at All Saints Catholic Church are asking the general public to use only our gravel parking lot, at the site of the former city park, on the evening of “Trick or Treat on Main Street,” if parking is necessary.

    Our members will need the paved parking lot to be able to attend our worship service (Mass) scheduled for 5 p.m., which will be followed by another parish event.

    Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

  • LETTER: A vote for Clevenger

    I am writing to commend to the attention of District 5 Sandy Clevenger’s candidacy for its representative on the Spencer County Board of Education.

    I have come to know Sandy very well both as a friend and colleague. Though Sandy does not officially represent my district on the Board, she indeed represents all citizens of Spencer County – children, parents, teachers, and administration. She has been accused of having an agenda and being bitter toward the school system.

  • Peanut Butter-Banana . . . salad?

    Ardia Herndon’s peanut butter and banana salad recipe has been a family favorite for generations on both sides of her family.

    “My husband’s aunt gave it to my grandmother probably seventy years ago. I’ve known it since I was a child,” said Herndon, who grew up in Wakefield but moved to Elk Creek when she married fifty-eight years ago. It was one of her husband’s favorites as a child. When he visited his aunt, he ate enough peanut butter banana salad to make himself sick.
