  • 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.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Plant garlic now for 2011 summer harvest

    For most of us, garlic has become a cooking staple. You can give anything flavor by adding a little garlic to the recipe and you can grow it yourself if you have a little space in the back yard. For centuries, garlic has been enjoyed for its culinary, medicinal and spiritual qualities, including fending off evil spirits and vampires and acting as an anti-bacterial. There was evidence of garlic in King Tut’s tomb when it was discovered; so obviously, the ancient Egyptians were growing it as far back as 2100 B.C. That’s some serious culinary history.

  • Ethics complaint against sheriff, deputies

    The Spencer Magnet has received a copy of an ethics complaint dated Oct. 21, that was reportedly filed with the Spencer County Ethics Commission.

    Ethics Chairman Dwight Greenwell said any complaints filed are to remain confidential “until it gets to the second or third step. I can not confirm or deny that we have a complaint. It would be illegal to do so according to the code of ethics.”

  • 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.
