    Thank you to anyone who has supported the country ham breakfast the first Saturday of each month.

  • FROM THE WORD: In his own image

    As we look at our leaders today even though they are for killing thousands of babies each year before they are brought into the world and as we look at the Word of God they are definitely created by God. Regardless of who their daddy is, their Father is still God.

  • Helping the Henry family

    While the Henry family has been taking time off from work to stay by their critically-injured son in the hospital, neighbors have been hard at work thinking of ways to help.

    Just days after 15-year-old Nicholas Henry collided with an SUV while riding his dirt bike, fellow residents along Whitetail Drive set up an account at Citizens Union Bank to help his family with what they see as an inevitable financial strain.

  • LETTER: Good story on septic systems

    The article written by Larry Lewis regarding septic tanks was right on the mark. If everyone on septic systems would follow that advice they would have a lot less problems.

    Thanks, Mr. Lewis, for a very factual and informative article.

  • Record number attends Habitat for Humanity event

    The day started out cool – hovering around the low 50s – and gradually warmed to a comfortable high of 80 degrees with barely a cloud in sight. Event organizers could not have ordered a better day for the 4th Annual Spencer County Habitat for Humanity Golf Scramble.

    Whether it was the picture-perfect day or the chance to help out for a good cause, a record number of golfing enthusiastists turned out to participate in the yearly fundraiser.

  • Grand jury indictments

    Rape, incest and sexual abuse lead off a long list of indictments placed on various individuals earlier this month by Spencer County’s grand jury.

    • James Hahn, of 307 Washington Street, Apt. 3, in Taylorsville was indicted on one felony count of rape and one felony count of incest for offenses that allegedly occurred between June 1999 and June 2002. Hahn is accused of raping a child less than 12 years old and engaging in incest with a family member less than 18 years old.

  • LETTER: Somebody, please fix Houston Court

    When I read the articles in the paper about all the city and county are doing to make our town and county pretty, I think back about all the times the citizens of Houston Court have asked for their help and nothing has been done.

    We live at the bottom of Skaggs Hill. We have had an ongoing drainage problem here for years and the city and county can only blame each other about “who is responsible for this problem.”
