  • GUEST COLUMN: Title talk no laughing matter

    I’ve been watching Spencer County High School sports here for nearly a decade, as both a parent and and a reporter. No doubt there have been a lot of rough stretches as our teams have almost always competed hard, but often came up short on the scoreboard. Things might be changing.

    Spencer Countian Tabitha Martin’s Javanon soccer team won the U11 Girls Division of the Mockingbird Invitational Tournament last weekend.  The final game went into overtime.  The team also were finalists in the Mead Cup Tournament played over Labor Day weekend in Dayton.

  • Sending signals to regional foes

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer program is making some noise this season but they won’t be content until they make their mark.

    That mark may come in the form of records, as in the number of wins in a season, scoring 100 goals in the regular season, or advancing in the playoffs. But the biggest accomplishment has already been achieved, and that’s sending a message to the rest of the 8th region that Spencer County is ready to join the ranks of the elite.

  • LETTER: Help save Light Up Salt River

    My family is fairly new to Spencer County, being here just over five years. We plan to be here the rest of our life. We go to church here. We bank here. We grocery shop here. We go to Dr. Oder and our dog goes to Dr. Shelley.

    When the Magnet had an article that Sid Kirsch would like to have some new people to help with a committee, I called her and was told that Light Up Salt River was being held in a few months and I could be helpful there.

  • GUEST COLUMN: It's a must-win week for UK

    Those diesel coal truck tread marks across Joker Phillips’ forehead, never mind.

    It’s a new day. Move on!

    MUST WIN WEEK is tag-line for football teams in Lexington, Louisville, Bowling Green and Richmond today.

    • Kentucky, humiliated at Florida, and because of its $EC road ahead, time to Man Up. A win at Ole Miss is vital if the Wildcats are to do the next-level thing Joker Phillips aspires to with big visits on the horizon from Auburn and South Carolina.

  • Mayoral candidates face off

    Candidates for Taylorsville mayor fielded questions ranging from taxes to economic development during a recent political forum held at the Spencer County-Taylorsville Chamber of Commerce.

    About 75 residents participated in the chance to learn more about the four people seeking to become mayor. Voters will be heading to the polls in less than five weeks to determine the outcome of this and other local, state and federal races.

  • Room to be creative

    Adina Milburn’s craft room is a source of joy and stress relief for her.

    “I can be having the worst day, and I can come in here, work on a scrapbook and it helps me out,” said Milburn.

    Milburn moved her craft room from the basement to a dedicated space on the first floor about five years ago. She has been scrapbooking for eighteen years.

    “I started scrapbooking when the kids were real young,” said Milburn. She has two sons who are now seventeen and twenty.

  • LETTER: The place to be

    We were lucky enough to get tickets for the sold out Progressive Dinner. We, again, were joined by 4 friends from 3 different counties, for the event. Actually, they pestered us since the last Progressive Dinner because they didn’t want to miss it, this year! That says a lot.
