  • Sand-lot baseball: a far-fetched idea?

    It’s still not officially summer but the heat and humidity of mid-June makes one dread the coming July and August.

  • LETTER: Dangerous intersection

    Robin Bass got it right in an editorial several weeks back about the need for a traffic light at the intersection of KY 55(155) and KY 1169. 

    The story on the latest pile-up contained only one shocking item – nobody has requested that the state cough up $80,000 to save lives and install the light!

  • Race for mayor heats up as Hahn, Sweazy file

    The temperature outside heating up and so is the race for Taylorsville mayor with two more candidates filing their paper work with the county clerk’s office last week.

    Former Taylorsville Mayor Walter Hahn and Kindergarten teacher Ruth Ann Sweazy will be running against Commissioner Lynda Huckleberry, who announced her plans to seek the city’s highest office last month.

  • Preschool student’s unique discovery

    This cecropia moth was found by Audrey Hickerson when it was still in a cocoon at her grandmother’s house in Stamping Ground. The cecropia moth is the largest moth in North America and considered a rare sighting for anyone. Audrey’s preschool teacher, Mrs. Eye, allowed the moth to stay in her classroom until it came out of the chrysalis on May 20. Audrey took the moth back to her grandmother’s house later that week and released it.

    Above: Audrey and the cecropia moth the day she released it at her Mamaw’s in Stamping Ground.

     

  • Perilous times

    ‘This know in the last days perilous times shall come.” -2 Timothy 3:1.

    As we look at our nation and around the world we have to say we are living in perilous times.

    Our President proposed to set up abortion clinics around the world, and the speaker of the house called it birth control. Now the President and Congress are working on repealing the ‘No ask, no tell” policy for homosexuals in our armed forces. It seems like every ungodly thing in the world is what we want to do.

  • LETTER: Wonderful service

    I’m sure I speak for the hundreds and hundreds of people in Spencer County that utilize the services that the Elk Creek Animal Hospital provides.
