  • 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.

  • 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.”

  • LETTER: Dry in name only

    The thousands of beer cans that we have picked up along the right of way adjoining our farm over many decades stand as testament that Spencer County is dry in name only.

    We do not use alcohol but support the sale of alcoholic beverages in Spencer County because we think that if some existing businesses wish to sell it, they should have the opportunity to do so.

  • LETTER: Take the heat out of the alcohol debate

    I like truth. I do not have a corner on truth, so I try to be grateful to people who disagree with me for specific reasons. When someone tells me he disagrees with me, it is hard not to take it personally. It is much better if he gives me reasons why he disagrees with me. Then, I can try to understand his position.

  • Guest columnist: Progressive town needs a progressive plan

    Last week, a public meeting was held with engineers from the State Highways and Transportation Department regarding the proposed new bridge on KY 55 over the Salt River and the KY 44 realignment.  I got the impression these projects, although much needed, are simply a meat and potatoes bare bones approach leaving no room in the design for wide sidewalks to accommodate pedestrians, bike routes or handicapped pathways.

  • Shooting sports

    Wow, what a great day for the Spencer County Invitational Trap tournament with the rain passing through early in the morning making for a great day. Seven counties attended the tournament May 16, which was held at the Spencer County Fish and Game club. Over 50 youth, ranging from nine to 18, experienced the excitement of competition trap shooting. Some experienced the joy of victory with others experiencing the agony of defeat, but everyone experienced the happiness of fellowship, camaraderie and just plain fun. With this combination everyone was a true winner.
