  • LETTER: Oversupply, corruption biggest problems for dairy industry

    I would like to commend freelance writer Laura Clark for her article on dairy farming. When Ms. Clark asked what I thought the biggest, single problem was facing the dairy industry it was very difficult to answer because truthfully, nobody knows.

  • Shooting Stars named champs

     The U8 division ended their season with the Mike Miles U8 Invitational Tournament.  It was cold and wet, but these little soccer players endured, played, and had fun.

    This is an all day tournament which starts at 10 a.m. and plays the final game at 4:30 p.m.  It was another exciting tournament that hosted six teams and over 100 spectators, despite the weather conditions.

    One game was decided by “kicks from the mark” and several other games were very close, going down to the wire.

  • Veterans Celebration Saturday

    The fourth annual Veterans Celebration is shaping up to be an eventful day in Taylorsville.

    “It seems to build each year,” said organizer D.J. Fee. “This Saturday is going to be glorious.”

    The Celebration grew out of Fee’s outreach organization Guard Duty, which she founded when her son Sam Atkinson deployed to Iraq. This year’s event will be extra-special for her as Sam came home on Halloween.

  • Candidates needed for weatherization, credit help and foreclosure rescue

    Multi-Purpose Community Action Agency needs applicants for its weatherization, credit management and foreclosure rescue programs.

    An influx of grant money, more than half a million dollars, has given MPCAA the ability to help more people in need throughout Shelby, Spencer and Bullitt counties.

    General qualification standards are based on sliding-scale poverty guidelines. For example, a 4-person household can make a gross monthly income of no more than $3,676.
