  • Can you see God with a telescope?

    An article posted on CNN.com, Telescopes to show universe soon after Big Bang, claims the future construction of the world’s largest telescopes with mirrors ranging from 25 to 42 meters (80 to 137 feet) in diameter “will be able to show what the universe was like when it was just a few hundred million years old and emerging from a period of total darkness after the Big Bang.”

  • Drury joins Jackson+Metts

  • Volley Bears at home tonight

    The Spencer County Lady Bears Volleyball team fell just one game short of sweeping the Bullitt County schools to start off the 2009 season.

    The girls opened their campaign with a 2-0 match victory over Bullitt Central on the road, winning games by scores of 25-12 and 25-14. They followed that up with a 2-1 match victory over North Bullitt at home last week. They took the first game 25-18, dropped the second game 25-17, then took the rubber match in an exciting 25-23 final.

  • LETTER: Respect the voter, no matter the choice

    I certainly hope not. There is no need for this issue to split our community on a long term basis. This is my answer to Editor Robin Bass’s question from last week’s Spencer Magnet, “Will the alcohol vote split the community?”

  • LETTER:Politicians need health care reform

    I keep hearing about all the protests at the Town Hall Meetings all over the  country about the Health Care Reform. But no one has brought up the fact that if the President’s Health Care Reform is so good – how  come all the politicians have their own Health Care Package for Life?  If the Reform is going to work, then the President himself and all politicians should have to be a part of it – it should affect them as much as the American people – then see how fast it would get through Congress!

  • LETTER: "The devil made me do it"

    Hopefully to bring closure to a sad, uneventful and insulting saga I am in continued contact with the F.B.I and Scotland Yard to help bring KACo’s “master and mysterious identity thief” to justice. The only problem is both agencies say this “phantom of the imagination” does not exist.

    My investigative sources tell me no identity thief would be dumb enough to take a felony prison rap of ten years just for the pleasure (I Guess) of watching a bunch of naked women dance on a pole.

  • Bigger fire station planned for Elk Creek

    As the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department adds bigger and better equipment to their firefighting arsenal, they are starting to feel confined in older stations.

    We’ve out grown where we are,” said Chief Nathan Nation, of the station in Elk Creek. “The equipment barely fits. You can’t walk around the trucks without opening the bay door.”

    The brown, metal firehouse, nestled between Elk Creek Grocery and building filled with dentists, doctors and physical therapists, has just enough room for one tanker and engine.

  • Excitement found in offense

    The Spencer County Bears kickoff the 2009 football season Friday night when they host East Jessamine at 7:30. This year’s squad is made up of familiar names, new names, and maybe most importantly more names than any Bears team in the past.

  • Stallions season opener

    During the recent season opener for the Spencer County Stallions youth football league, two out of the three teams won.

    The Mighty Mites beat the KYS Steelers 20-6, while the Pee Wee’s won 24-12 against their age group from the same league.
