    Get the word out about your business

    Greater Louisville Sports Commission will be sponsoring the Master’s Cycle Time Trial to be held in Spencer County on Wednesday, July 1.  These folks are looking to hand out a welcome packet filled with information and promotional items from businesses in Spencer County.

  • Search continues for missing boater

    Divers are continuing their search for the body of a Bullitt County man who has been missing since Friday morning at Taylorsville Lake.

    Thirty-six-year-old Anthony W. Reynolds, of Shepherdsville, was last seen around 10 a.m. Friday after apparently losing control of the boat he was driving, said Lt. Shane Carrier of the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: How can contradictory faiths COEXIST?

    There is a rapidly growing advertisement concept floating around lately promoting acceptance; perhaps you have seen it. Most commonly seen on bumper stickers, the word “COEXIST” appears with letters made up of different symbols representing various belief systems.

  • LETTER: A donor saved my life

    A month ago, I received the most precious gift anyone could possibly receive – a lung transplant. Money could not have bought this, only the generosity of a donor who wanted their life to mean something even after their death by saving other lives.

    Until I needed a transplant, I never knew how important it was to become a donor – or how easy it was – just sign the back of your driver’s license.

  • 4-H Camp right around the corner

    Even though you may not have put away your winter coat just yet, it’s time to start thinking about 4-H summer camps.

    Resident 4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth, ages nine through thirteen. Groups of youths from every county will attend one of the four resident camps during the nine-week summer season. The 4-H camping program provides a safe, secure and fun environment for Kentucky campers. An onsite EMT/health care provider is always available to take care of campers needs.

  • LETTER: Speak up now about bridge and KY 44 projects

    Fellow citizens, this is your last chance to influence the Hwy 55 Salt River Bridge Project and Hwy 44 Realignment Project.  I am sending two letters to the state highway department that outline what many in the community would like to see included with these projects.  You may or may not agree with everything but either way, you should let them know what you think.  If we do not ask for these additions they will not include them.

  • The day our nation stops to remember

    “O beautiful for heroes proved,

    In liberating strife,

    Who more than self their country loved,

    And mercy more than life!”

    - from “America the Beautiful,” published in 1895,

    writen by Katharine Lee Bates,

    composed by Samuel A. Ward

    A service for remembering – that is how Pastor Bill Dunning described the community Memorial Day ceremony at Valley Cemetery Sunday afternoon.

  • Rockets give Bears a rough ride

    The Spencer County Bears put together some good games over the course of the season, but their last outing of the year was far from a gem on the diamond as they struggled in a 19-3 rout at the hands of Shelby County in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament in Shelbyville last Tuesday night.

    Dropped balls, errant throws, and numerous walks and hit batters allowed the Rockets to keep runners on the base paths all night long as they raced out to an early lead and never were really threatened by Spencer County .
