  • LETTER: Native American fest canceled

    It is with great regret that I send you this news but we need to make the people of Spencer County and Taylorsville aware that we will not be able to host a Native American festival this year.

  • 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?

  • Calipari may be testing limit of fans' love

    If love can make you blind, then infatuation must be capable of blunting all the senses.

    That’s the only way I can explain the UK fan who pretends not to be concerned over recent comments from UK Head Coach John Calipari.

    Following Thursday’s NBA draft, where five UK ballplayers were picked in the first round, a total unmatched by any other school ever, Calipari made the statement that it was the “biggest day in the history of Kentucky’s program.”

  • MATTER OF OPINION: Is patriotism lost?

    Happy 234th birthday U.S. of A!

    Time to get those barbecues fired up for this weekend’s backyard festivities. Let’s see, we need burgers, hot dogs and chips. Check! A cooler full of Cokes. Check! Plastic cups, plates and utensils in shades of red, white and blue. Triple check! Oh, yeah, don’t forget to stop by the nearest fireworks stand. You know how the kids love sparklers.

    I enjoy a family get-together as much as the next person, but is that all the Fourth of July means to us any more? Is it just another commercialized holiday?

  • LETTER: Thank you for celebrating my life

    I would like to thank everyone for their attendance at my celebration of life party. Also, I would like to thank the community for all their  prayers and love during my time of illness. God bless you and thank you.

    Growing up in the Spencer County community and being raised in such a large and loving family, has truly given me many wonderful memories and experiences. Thank you!

  • Dispatch switch flips Wednesday night

    While most residents are sleeping tonight, Spencer County’s 911 emergency dispatching phone lines will be quietly transferred to state police dispatchers in Frankfort. The midnight move of services comes after more than a year of debates and planning.

    Few will notice any changes in the coming days, said Capt. Mike Crawford – except for the small group of folks that sometimes use local dispatchers for instant news reports.
