  • LETTER: Hesselbrock 'the obvious choice'

    The election is less than two weeks from now and the people of Spencer County will cast their important vote for the future direction of the city and county. Their vote will be a decision on which way we want to proceed. Our county will be challenged by the changes that are happening all around us. I ask myself, do we want to continue along the same direction or do we want to inject some new ideas and energy into our local government?

  • Turnovers doom Bears

    The Spencer County Bears fell for the eighth consecutive game Friday night, losing to district foe North Oldham 42-32 in a game that saw plenty of bright spots for the Bears, but once again, too many mistakes.

    Three turnovers gave the visiting Mustangs too many extra scoring opportunities and the Bears are now looking at just two games remaining on their schedule to avoid a winless season.

  • LETTER: Why vote for 'same unqualified people?'

    I’ve always wondered about the people who run for an elected office in our government. What fuels their desire to want to go through the battle of an election and then their time in office?

    For many, I believe, it is an uncontrollable need to work for the people they serve and make things “right.”

    There’s no ulterior motive, no selfish need for power, only the drive to help other people.

  • GUEST COLUMN: UK's Hartline like Mike?

    Two autumns ago, Michael Hartline was a quarterback who “we hope can manage a game,” said UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips.

    A polite way of saying Hartline would have to do until Morgan Newton and/or Ryan Mossakowski were signed, suited up and tutored to handle SEC violence.

    During the next two seasons the 6-6 kid from Ohio was adequate, streaks of pin-point passes checkered with spells of bumble-itis. Dropped passes and fickle fans didn’t help.

  • LETTER: Volunteers, businesses made Progressive Dinner happen

    I would like to personally thank everyone that worked so hard to make the Progressive Dinner such a success! Hats off to the volunteers for their tremendous effort.

  • 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.
