  • Revard pleads not guilty

    Raymond Revard, Jr. pled not guilty to charges of murder and tampering with physical evidence during an arraignment Thursday in Spencer County Circuit Court.

    He stood quietly as Judge Charles Hickman formally read the charges related to the death of his wife, Lea Revard. Twice Revard glanced past the small barricade of police officers toward spectators in the courtroom. Among those watching the proceedings last week were Lea Revard’s mother, Marie McCoy, along with several other family members.

  • Animal removal service revived

    The question of who will be responsible for the disposal of dead livestock in the county has finally come to a close – at least for the next 14 months.

    Spencer County Fiscal Court approved last Monday to enter into a contract with Dars, Inc. to provide the county’s removal services. The Clark County company, who began providing service locally last Wednesday, will be paid just under $24,000 annually to transport deceased livestock for rendering.

  • Tapp won’t seek re-election, endorses Paul Hornback

    State Sen. Gary Tapp said Tuesday he would not be a candidate for re-election when his term expires in 2010.

    “I’ve been there 12 years, and that’s pretty much enough,” Tapp said. “I want to spend more time with my business and with my family.”

  • LETTER: Alcohol costs outweigh benefits

    I located here thirteen years ago from a wet county. Liquor stores are prominent. Beer and wine are now being sold in some grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores and convenient marts.

    I am now hearing the same promotional message that I heard at our town’s council meetings, “we need the money”. It was all about the money regardless of what it will do to some people morally.

  • LETTER: In support of Williams
  • LETTER: “Dry county is no safer”

    I am for Spencer County going wet. If they ever get the lodge at the lake going it will be dependant on alcohol-by-the-drink. The golf course would do much better if it were wet. If the non-drinkers think there is very little alcohol consumed in Spencer County, they would be surprised to know the reality of it. Many that enjoy a drink at home stock up on what they like. The others make small purchases and then when they run out, drive drunk to buy more and drink on the way home.

  • Youth football camp

    Spencer County Youth Football Association will be hosting the 2009 Spring Football and Cheerleading Camp Saturday  beginning at 2 p.m at the Taylorsville Elementary School field.

    All youth in Spencer County are invited to attend the Spring Football and Cheerleading Camp for the Spencer County Stallions’ upcoming 2009 season.  This event is free to all Spencer County youth.

  • Softball team 2-5 for season

    The Spencer County Lady Bears fell to 2-5 on the season after dropping three games in a tournament at West Jessamine over the weekend.

    The girls battled in the first two games, losing 3-0 to Danville and 3-1 to John Hardin, before dropping a 10-0 decision to Woodford County to close the weekend.

    The girls were scheduled to be back in action on Tuesday at home against Eminence and will travel to Shelby County today for a game. They have a double-header scheduled against Frankfort on the road Friday and will be at Bardstown next Tuesday.
