  • 'American Pickers' visit local collector

    When the History Channel’s “American Pickers” come to town, traffic stops – at least it does when the town is Little Mount.

    “I had no idea the show was as popular as it is,” said Barbara Whitehead. But she quickly learned that the show’s hosts, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, can really draw a crowd. Barbara estimated 300 people stopped to watch the popular “Pickers” film a segment with her husband and avid collector Charlie Whitehead.

  • Martin among KSP's largest class

    FRANKFORT - The Kentucky State Police Academy presented diplomas to 63 new troopers at ceremonies held Friday in Frankfort. Their addition to the force brings KSP’s strength to a total of 917 troopers.

    Christopher Martin, of Taylorsville, was among the troopers receiving diplomas.  Martin is a former Spencer County Sheriff’s deputy.

    The new troopers started a 23-week training cycle on April 11, in a class that consisted of 90 cadets.

  • EDITORIAL CARTOON: Mid-term elections
  • LETTER: Restoring Honor Rally

    “Freedom is not free,” is a statement we have heard since Glenn Beck started his program several years ago. Recently, I had the opportunity to attend the “8/28 Restoring Honor” event that Beck sponsored at the Lincoln memorial. The focus of the event was faith, hope and charity – the foundations of our country. As a Christian, it became a pilgrimage and a challenge to attend.

    On Thursday August 26, a friend and I headed to Frederick, Maryland on our motorcycles. The ride was good and the weather was excellent.

  • LETTER: Editorial was 'hateful and hurtful'

    Letter to the Editor of a newspaper, but I was so shocked to see the article concerning the local school board last week, that I feel I need to express my opinion.

    First of all, I do not believe Robin Bass has any idea about the amount of monies which are needed to run the public schools in Spencer County. If she had taken the time to look up the information of expenditures provided, by county, on the State of Kentucky’s Board of Education website, she would have seen that the information the local board provided is the facts.

  • Bears' rally falls short, lose to Bethlehem 42-28

    It hasn’t mattered if the opposition is a 6A or a 1A team, Spencer County has yet to bring their A-game to the field so far this year and the Bears have fallen to 0-5 on the season after a 42-28 loss to Bethlehem Friday night in Bardstown.

    The loss was mostly the product of a very slow start that saw the host Eagles build a 21-0 lead before  the Bears rallied to keep it close until the final minutes.

    The slow start surprised Bears Coach Wes Napper, who said his players seemed to be ready at kickoff.

  • GUEST COLUMN: Everyday faith, take it seriously

    Everyday faith sounds so simple. Just have faith every day, but what does that mean? For believers in Jesus Christ, it means taking our faith seriously every day. It means applying our faith to our everyday lives.

    On a recent mission trip with our church, I met some young people who stopped me in my tracks. They came up after a service was over just to talk for a few minutes. Over the next 30 minutes, I got a lesson in the reality of Christian living in the modern world.

  • LETTER: No conflict, says fire chief

    In response to the letter to the editor in last week’s paper, I would like to correct some of the statements made that I have a conflict of interest in seeking to serve on the city commission.

    First, Kentucky Revised Statute allows two firefighters to serve on a fire protection district board of trustees which are elected by the firefighters. I am proud to have our firefighters support to serve on the board. This is the same make up of all fire protection district boards across the state.

    No conflict.
