  • 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.

  • 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 .

  • LETTER: Taxes, traffic and earning a living wage

    Why is David Jenkins grinning on the front page about his new taxes’ averting a deficit?  I have a deficit for the second straight year--partly from medical bills, but partly from the three new local taxes.

    Why hasn’t the Taylorsville floodwall been a “stimulus bill” priority like the new Louisville bus wash?  People accused Bush of being at fault when New Orleans flooded, but this decision-making will really make Obama at fault when Taylorsville floods.

  • Teacher encourages “can do” attitude

    Achieving “Yes, I Can!” goals, receiving congratulations from Superintendent Chuck Adams, and enjoying delicious pizzas compliments of Papa John’s had Kathy Bryant’s and Harriett Hile’s third and fourth grade students pumped up Tuesday afternoon.

    Teaching kids to set goals and over-come obstacles is what the “Yes, I Can!” program is all about.  Developed by Kathy Bryant in 1997 the program has gained quite a bit of popularity, not only among students, but among parents and staff members as well.
