  • GUEST COLUMN: Neighborhood watch groups in works

    Over the next few weeks, I’ll be talking about some important issues in the City – from Blockwatch neighborhoods and motorized wheelchair visibility, to the new sewer expansion project and the Floodwall/Houston Court project. 

    Last summer I met with residents of Pin Oak, Highview, Early Wyne, and Old Town about establishing Blockwatch neighborhoods.  The support for this concept was overwhelming.

  • BUSINESS MATTERS: Just a sample...enjoy

    It may seem hard to believe, but August is already here and schools will be back in session next week. Teachers, parents, students, and countless others have been working diligently to get everything ready for the 2010-2011 school year. And, at the Spencer Magnet, we too, have been working hard to put together this edition of our newspaper because it is one of our most important issues - a gift that we enjoy giving to you.

  • Martins: RadioShack store small, but big on service

    You’ll find Radio Shacks at more than 6,500 locations, but you won’t find many as unique and customer-friendly as the one operating in Taylorsville.

    Purchasing the franchise store here in 2003 was a dream-come-true for Louisville native Wesley Martin and wife Joy, a native of the Philippine Islands.

    The pair met in California, where Joy grew up, while both were working in the telecommunications industry.

    In the late 1990s, Wesley was offered a position in Louisville, and after an extensive search, the couple found their ideal home in Spencer.

  • LETTER: Thanks to those who keep us cool

    We doubt anyone will ever forget the ice storm of 2009, and most assuredly ,people will be talking about this summer of 2010, when the oppressive heat is affecting everyone. There are days that you walk outside and it feels like the sun is on fire.

    We would imagine that most residents in Spencer County are blessed with air-conditioning, but there are those who have to endure the heat and humidity, without this luxury. There are also those whose occupations require them to work ‘outside’ in these conditions.

  • $ypher trial needs Andy Rooney, Terry Meiners, 2 fiddles and a banjo

    Rick Pitino strode through the valley of the shadow of humiliation last week.

    As expected, Louisville’s coach was more than a match for the defendant’s attorney in the Karen $ypher trial. But, when asked how long his dalliance with $ypher lasted, Pitino issued a gaffe that made him into a punch line.

    “Fifteen seconds.”

    Excuse me? Pitino had to be thinking half-court how-to with the clock running down. This remark could earn Pitino a place with the other Unforgettables who said:

    “Well, I am not a crook,”  

  • A lesson in overcoming obstacles

    Hearing impairment is something that Spencer County High School Principal and SEC Basketball Legend Jocelyn Lyons had always viewed as one of life’s hurdles. It was just another obstacle to overcome.

    But in recent years, Lyons was looking the reality of complete deafness in the face – and she didn’t like what she saw. As the active mother of 13-year-old daughter Makiah and a passionate high school administrator, she knew being deaf would forever change her life and how she interacted with others.

  • Herndon attends FFA conference

    Kentucky FFA State Sentinel Kevin Herndon, of Taylorsville, recently participated in the National Leadership Seminar for state officers in Springfield, Ill.

    Herndon, 18, is the son of Doug and Carol Herndon.

    During the four-day conference, state officers learned how to use motivation to create change in the lives of young people, achieve team leadership, discover and implement characteristics of a high-trust team, understand issues that face the National FFA organization, establish a state recruitment plan and learn effective presentation techniques.
