Today's News

  • 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.

  • Is your pet worthy of being idolized?

    The new extended deadline to get your pet’s photo entered in this year’s contest is August 24 at 5 p.m.

  • What's Happening: Spencer County's community calendar

    Weather siren testing

    Spencer County Emergency Management would like to remind residents that the emergency weather sirens will be tested at noon the third Wednesday of each month. If the siren sounds at any other time, it is to provide residents warning of a tornado spotted in the area.

  • Taking us back to Bizzaro World

    Back to Bizzaro World, with Rick and Vick. Confessions, concessions, remorse and apologies.

    Never mind. Soon enough a new wave of stupidity-turned-lawyer spin will move Rick Pitino and Michael Vick names off front pages, off ESPN’s screen roll and off a Letterman punch line list.

    Troubling, Pitino’s link to an abortion, but I am not among those stepping onto ivory tower balconies calling for Pitino to resign, be fired or hanged in effigy. He knows his demons. We know ours.

  • Church happenings

    Ice cream social at Risen Lord

    The community is invited to a free ice cream social with a band at Risen Lord Church on August 22 from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m.  Bring a lawn chair and your sweet tooth for fun and fellowship.  Come and enjoy our Moon Walk Inflatible, play ground, volleyball, corn hole, fooseball, basketball, and ping pong.

  • LETTER: Democracy at work

    Do you feel it in the air? Can you smell it? Most of all can you hear it? 

  • Online Trading Post is open for agribusiness

    Over the past couple of years, the Spencer County Extension Service has sponsored the Spencer Co. Trading Post, an online classified system for Agricultural and Horticultural products and services.  But recent changes to our website forced me to shut the Trading Post down until upgrades to the listing service could be made.

    After a few months with the Trading Post closed, I’m glad to say that it is now re-opened.
