  • 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.

  • Funbrellas to provide much-needed shade at parks

    Twenty-foot tall umbrellas will soon be popping up at county parks thanks to the health department, said Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins.

    Known as Funbrellas, the structures will each provide a five-foot circle of shade. Two are planned for Waterford Park, while three more will be installed at Ray Jewell Park.

    “It’s great that we can partner with other agencies in the community to get what we need,” said Jenkins. “I think they will be enjoyed a lot by people.”

  • Despite loss, Lady Bears still near top

    The Spencer County Lady Bears suffered a 5-2 loss on the road at North Oldham last week, but coach Charlie Traughber was pleased by much of what he saw from his young team that continues to prove it belongs to be mentioned among the elite in the region.

    The Lady Bears have shot to the top of the 8th region soccer standings, but they knew that last Tuesday’s game against North Oldham would be a good measuring stick as they would be facing a perennial state power.
