    About 85 Taylorsville Elementary students participated in a Colonial Living Museum last week as part of Teacher Jenny O’Donnell’s social studies class. The fifth graders were each assigned a colonial trade and were responsible for designing their “store” or “office” , and bringing in artifacts that went along with their trade. They also wrote a short script to say to the visitors of their booth.

  • Bears earning respect of Central Louisville

    The Spencer County Bears began the season by building a reputation as a team that could compete against anybody. While they ended their regular season on a down note with some lopsided defeats, they closed out their 2009 campaign by gaining back some of that respect in a hard-fought 56-36 loss to two-time defending State Champion Louisville Central Friday night.

    “I am very proud of the way our men battled against a very good Central team,” said first year Head Coach Wes Napper. “I think we gave them more of a game than what they had initially thought.”

  • School board members visit potential sites for new elementary

    The Spencer County Board of Education continued preliminary action for a new elementary school, visiting four potential sites Monday morning.

    “We’re very early in the stages,” said Superintendent Chuck Adams.

    He said the Board is still working on bonding potential and that it will take two to three years for the school to be ready to open.

  • Single vehicle accident on KY 44

    If Tom McAnelly had not made a trip to the kitchen early Saturday morning, Willis Milburn might not be alive today, said Spencer County Deputy Gordan Miles.

    Looking out a window, McAnelly told police that he could see head lights shining in the woods near his house. Far from where they should normally be seen along KY 44/Mt. Washington Road.

    When emergency crews arrived on the scene at 3 a.m., they found Milburn’s white truck about 30 feet down an embankment.

    “If someone hadn’t called it in, we might not have seen him,” said Miles.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Working together

    Lately, I have been reading through Mark and reflecting on sermons delivered during a recent revival.  It is amazing how the theme of unity in Christ keeps popping up.

    In Mark 3 Jesus says, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

    How divided we are sometimes. 

  • October wettest on record for some

    There’s no doubt October 2009 was a soggy month most agricultural producers would rather forget. The record rainfall made everything more complicated. From delayed harvests to tobacco curing problems, farmers were soaked to the bone. When the month finally ended and the numbers came together, it was official – it was the third wettest October on record for the state and the wettest for western parts of the state.

  • GUEST COLUMNIST: Kentucky’s obligation is to children

    Few things are as clear-cut or urgent as the need to get Kentucky’s children off to a healthy start in life.

     One, whether you’re a parent or a politician, it’s a moral obligation. I firmly believe that. Two, Kentucky’s future depends on our ability to create a talented, inquisitive and productive work force.       

     One year ago, my administration launched an aggressive plan to tackle, head on, one of the biggest hurdles to our children’s and our state’s future: lack of health insurance.
