    Justin Goodlett of the Spencer County FFA chapter was named national winner of the Equine Science Entrepreneur Proficiency Award Program. Four finalists competed to be named the national winner during the annual national FFA convention in October in Indiana.

    For Goodlett, raising and showing horses is a way of life.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Woulda, coulda, shoulda

    There is no wisdom like frankness – Benjamin Disraeli

    In Kentucky’s football autumn, instead of a frantic Monday search for latest BCS standings as is custom in towns across Alabama, fans here arrive at another Monday of woulda-coulda-shoulda.

    In Bowling Green, Western Kentucky coulda had a win streak, except an anemic effort against North Texas so aggravated Willie Taggart, the coach demanded a Sunday morning practice.

  • LETTER: Finally, blacktop

    After years of a tablespoon of rock and a cup of oil to patch a pot hole that lasts only a few hours, a new road of blacktop has happened. Thanks Mr. Jenkins.

  • LETTER: Looking for justice

    I have a big problem and I need help. My floodwall tax is listed for 134 West Main St. When I bought the house 30 years ago, it was to be 136 West Main St. My city taxes are for 128 West Main St.

    Now I get a garbage bill for four units and I only have one unit in use at this time because I am remodeling the house to try and meet the codes (which as you know change a lot).

    I have talked to the people in charge for years. So, I’m asking you and the good citizens of Taylorsville to help me get some justice.

  • LETTER: Voters take control

    There was a time in this country when a person voted for the one perceived to be the best one for the job. This eventually meant voting for the lesser of the evils. Now, it seems to have evolved even farther. They are all on fairly equal footing.

    It doesn’t matter whether it is on a local or national level. It’s tell the people what they want to hear when you’re running for office, then, once you’re elected, cater to the lobbyists rather than those who put you in office to begin with.

  • Risen Lord Lutheran Church lifts high the cross

    On October 31 a steeple was dedicated at Risen Lord Lutheran church.

    Its purpose is to lift high the cross of Jesus Christ so that those who gaze upon it may have their thoughts directed to the Savior of the world, Jesus Christ the Lord.

    Pastor Steve Gettinger commented that the steeple was donated in March of this year by Lord of Life Lutheran church in Fairfax, Virginia, to be installed at the church.

  • Home cooking: Murphy's sausage rice casserole

    Marty Murphy got her recipe for sausage rice casserole over twenty years ago, and has made it ever since. She went to a potluck dinner where it was served and made sure to ask for the recipe.

    “It’s one of those things that people really like,” said Murphy. Sausage rice casserole is a frequent request for the Bluegrass Basket Guild potluck dinners in Taylorsville.

    “I love the fact that it’s so easy and has so few ingredients,” said Murphy.

  • Work on floodwall could begin soon

    The process of re-certifying the Taylorsville levee is expected to begin later this month, said Mayor Don Pay – now that an engineering firm has been selected. Pay announced in Spencer County Fiscal Court Monday morning that DLZ Engineering, of Frankfort, was chosen from a list of three company proposals.

    “Once the work begins, we’re going to see a start and complete date that’s shorter than it took to get to this point,” said Pay.
