  • LETTER: Thanks for successful Democratic Bean Supper

    I’d like to thank all the wonderful folks who attended our annual Democratic Bean Supper this past weekend. We had a great time of food, live music and fellowship. There are far too many names to list of folks who came together and donated for this event. It was a huge success!

    I’d also like to thank Kimberly Greenwell, Democratic state representative candidate for the 33rd district, for coming to speak about a wonderful new program called Emerge Kentucky.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Is your faith solid as a rock?

    A few years ago I had a chance to travel to Marble Colorado and visit the marble mines there. Now when I think of marble I think of the monuments in cemeteries, the decoration on Courthouses, things like that. In fact the marble from this area was used to build the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery. I had always assumed that marble was literally “as solid as a rock.” But it turns out that marble is really fragile. All around the mines were smaller discarded pieces of marble that had been exposed to Colorado winters for 30 or 40 years.

  • Taking time to thank a war veteran

    Politicians in Spencer County and nationwide spent the final days of the campaign this weekend stumping for votes and making political speeches as Americans prepared to head to the polls on Tuesday.

    However, as U.S. Senator Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) spoke in Taylorsville Saturday afternoon, it was fitting that he shine some of the spotlight on a man who helped make this wonderful election process possible – a war veteran.

  • LETTER: Last year for Tree of Life

    This is the 25th year for the Tree of Life at the Methodist Church on Main Street in Bloomfield. This will also be the last performance for this beautiful  tree in Bloomfield as the tree (as I understand it) will be given to a church in Taylorsville starting next year.

    The theme this year is “For 25 years, Jesus Alone Be Praised”. The only way to get tickets is to send a stamped, self-addressed envelope with $1 for each ticket. Checks can be made to Tree of Life and mailed to P.O. Box 323, Bloomfield, Ky. 40008.
