  • LETTER: Why vote for 'same unqualified people?'

    I’ve always wondered about the people who run for an elected office in our government. What fuels their desire to want to go through the battle of an election and then their time in office?

    For many, I believe, it is an uncontrollable need to work for the people they serve and make things “right.”

    There’s no ulterior motive, no selfish need for power, only the drive to help other people.

  • GUEST COLUMN: UK's Hartline like Mike?

    Two autumns ago, Michael Hartline was a quarterback who “we hope can manage a game,” said UK offensive coordinator Joker Phillips.

    A polite way of saying Hartline would have to do until Morgan Newton and/or Ryan Mossakowski were signed, suited up and tutored to handle SEC violence.

    During the next two seasons the 6-6 kid from Ohio was adequate, streaks of pin-point passes checkered with spells of bumble-itis. Dropped passes and fickle fans didn’t help.

  • SWEET . . . Date finally set for tricks and treats

    The tricky details of Taylorsville’s Halloween on Main Street have finally been decided.

    The event’s date—which has been under question for the past several weeks—has been determined by the Taylorsville City Commission as Oct. 30. Generally the yearly kid-friendly gathering is held Oct. 31 but the event’s sponsors were forced to rethink the date after concerns were raised about Halloween falling on a Sunday this year.

  • PHOTO: Handmade with love

    Spencer County Preschool student Dawson Barr works on making hand print art Tuesday in Lisa Ingram’s class. The AM and PM preschool classes made the hand prints in honor of grandparent’s day, which the preschool is celebrating today and Thursday.

  • LETTER: Vote 'prayerfully'

    Working with military and veterans organizations, I have learned a great deal about leadership, dedication, integrity, and commitment. Words such as duty, respect, honor, courage, and selfless service define what these men and women represent.

    What we need in our government today are men and women who not only believe in these qualities but live them.

  • Two visions for the future

    Challenger for Spencer County Judge Executive Bill Karrer-R says a community center could potentially be realized in the next four years, if private partnerships are forged to help offset large operational expenses for the recreational facility.

    Incumbent Judge Executive David Jenkins-D says voters should decide the contentious issue of a city-county merger if a court ruling allows the issue to advance.
