  • Elk harvest was a “hunt of a lifetime”

    Joe Cotter, of Mt. Eden, posed with his prized bull elk harvested October 13 during the second week of the Kentucky Elk Hunt.

    The elk antlers had six points on the left side and seven points on the right side making it a 6x7 in hunter lingo. Cotter said the animal was 330 inch B&C and he hopes it will go in the record book as one of the top 10 in Kentucky.

  • FROM THE WORD: Choosing the narrow path

     Carrie Underwood has a song named ‘Jesus Take The Wheel’. One time when I heard her sing this song I began to think just how many of us want Jesus to take the wheel and guide us through our life?

    In Romans 10:9-16, it says, “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.

  • Tourism slogan contest

    Taylorsville Spencer County Tourism is searching for a slogan or tag line that best describes what we have to offer tourist. They need a slogan that is creative and memorable, something that “sticks” out in everyone’s mind.  For example, the Dairy Farmers created “Got Milk” and almost everyone knows that and remembers it.
