  • Look for more personality from Willis next season

    Ask Derek Willis a question during a media interview session and he’ll give you a straight forward answer. He does not dodge questions. He just doesn’t go overboard with answers.

    For his girlfriend, Keely Potts, that’s frustrating because she doesn’t think Kentucky fans have had a chance to see his real personality.

  • $16.5 million to build TES

     

    The new Taylorsville Elementary School now has a builder.

    Louisville-based Morel Construction Co. LLC got the official nod from the Spencer County Board of Education Monday at the board’s monthly meeting at Spencer County High School.

    “We’re on our way, folks,” board chair Debbie Herndon said after the board passed a motion approving the general contractor.

    “The time has come,” superintendent Chuck Adams said.

  • Feasibility of hydro power plant at lake researched

     

    The current that flows through the Taylorsville Lake dam to the Salt River could have a future in electricity production, if a Coal Gables, Florida-based company’s plan proceeds.

    Energy Resources USA Inc., a subsidiary of a Spanish company, has filed a preliminary permit application with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, proposing to conduct a feasibility study for a hydroelectric plant at the site.

  • Levee trail a step closer

    The path to success begins with a single step, and eager citizens who attended Monday night’s meeting of the City of Taylorsville’s Strategic Planning session were advised that they don’t have to wait to start walking.

    Specifically, Tad Long said one of the priorities evident from the initial meeting last month was the development of a walking trail around the Taylorsville levee. He said such a project doesn’t require too much effort in the beginning, and the important thing is to just let people experience it.

  • Grocery celebrates 50 years

     

    The celebration at Country Mart last week marking the store’s 50th anniversary in Taylorsville seemed much more than just an anniversary of a business. Rather, it was more like a family reunion of sorts.

    “We try to create a family atmosphere here,” said owner Matt Goldstein, when trying to explain the loyalty that’s evident among both customers and employees.

  • Disc golf course gets a mulligan

    Supporters of a disc golf course at Taylorsville Lake State Park have encountered more obstacles due to governmental red tape, than players would ever have to negotiate while playing the game.

    However, they remain optimistic following a meeting with Kentucky Parks Commissioner Donnie Holland last week that didn’t result in promises, but did offer a glimmer of hope for another shot.

  • Woman struck by train while hunting for mythical Pope Lick monster

    Two young Ohio tourists, searching for the Pope Lick Trestle monster while in Louisville, saw a train barreling their way with no time to run.

    Safety was about 40 feet away, but Roquel Bain, 26, and her boyfriend didn’t have time to make it off the train trestle Saturday night. He dangled off the edge until the train could pass, but she didn’t make it.

    A Norfolk Southern train fatally struck Bain, who was then knocked more than 80 feet to the ground below.
