  • Footie Chicklets win State Cup in U10

    The Footie Chicklets, a Spencer County Soccer Association U10 girl’s team, won the Kohl’s American State Cup tournament hosted in Bardstown and sponsored by US Youth Soccer. 

    The Chicklets were determined to prove that they were the best team in the state, said Coach Mike Heuglin, and did so very decisively by defeating teams from Nelson County, Lexington, and Bardstown to get to the finals game against the South Nelson Fast & Furious. 

  • Couple’s collection speaks volumes

    If more people knew what lies behind the four walls of their home, Larry and Maxine Talkington would be the talk of Taylorsville.

    Step through the front door of the blue house off Whitetail Drive, and you’re immediately surrounded by a collection that would rival any antique mall in America.

    From giant soft drink advertising signs to tiny tractors, there’s hardly an inch of space not taken up by a display.

  • Thomas, Myers a winning duo

    Leigh Ellen Thomas (left) and Mackenzie Myers, along with their 14U travel team the Heartland Rage, brought home yet another championship trophy from Owensboro winning the 2010 Tri-State tournament.

The Stunners had defeated the Rage twice in order to be the champs but the Rage pulled it off in the second championship game winning 4 to 2. This was the team’s fourth championship trophy this summer with a winning record of 30 wins, only 4 losses.

  • State property tax rate set for 2010

    Kentucky Revised Statute 132.020 requires the Department of Revenue to set the real property rate no later than July 1 of each year.

  • Home cooking: Carrot Cake by Barnes

    Wanda Barnes received her carrot cake recipe from her sister many years ago. “I’ve had it for so long,” she said.

    She usually makes the carrot cake at Easter because her brother-in-law asks for it. She does not make it as much as she would like because her husband loves the cake but is diabetic.

    Barnes recently fulfilled requests to bring her cake to the Waterford Homemakers annual picnic.

    While she usually makes it as a sheet cake, sometimes she makes the cake in individual pound cake pans. When she does, it cooks for about 30-40 minutes.

  • FROM THE WORD: Let your light shine

    Just before the last presidential race, a fellow Christian and I were talking about our country. He said that he was afraid our country was at the point where we would choose evil over good. It seems we as a Christian nation elect evil leaders to lead us in the wrong direction. I think Jesus called them wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    Matthew 7:15-16 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
