  • Citizen of the Year: Sharon Thomas

    Sharon Thomas is a volunteeroholic. Whenever she’s asked to give her time to a community event or activity, she always finds it hard to turn it down.

    “I made a resolution that in 2009 I was going to learn to say ‘no’. But after 12 days [in the New Year] I’m already volunteering to do things,” she said.

    Last year Thomas’ desire to help out led her to spend countless hours on community projects and also helped her to receive the title of Citizen of the Year from a local civic group.

  • Girls lose to Australians 65-36

    The Spencer County Lady Bears didn’t catch many breaks last week, but they’ll get one this week as they get a week off following four tough games in a six-day span that ended with a disappointing 65-36 loss to an Australian traveling team Friday night.

    The girls looked ready to compete in the early going, with senior Kenisha Marshall powering inside for eight first quarter points as they battled to a 17-17 tie at the end of the first frame.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Positive role model

    Last Tuesday night had all the makings of some swanky awards program. Valet parking. A candlelit red carpet. White, linen-covered tables filled with shrimp cocktail and a fountain of bubbling, amber-colored refreshment.

    Wait a minute. I am in the right place, aren’t I? This is the nursing home, right?

    It was Signature HealthCare’s first Hall of Fame Cafe awards program  – designed to celebrate the lives and achievements of their residents, employees and members of the community.

    Taylorsville residents who live within the floodwalls could see a significant increase in their insurance costs if the city loses its certification, Floodwall Commissioner Gary Kehne told city commissioners last Tuesday.

  • Boys take a beating despite scrappy play

    The Spencer County Bears scrapped their way to respectability last Friday facing a much older and much bigger Australian team before falling 60-49. While the loss dropped the Bears to 4-13 on the year, the solid performance came on the heels of a 53-51 win over Eminence and a 58-56 loss to North Bullitt.

    On Friday, the Bears looked a little mismatched in the early going, falling behind 6-0 to the Australian team, but a three pointer by Trey Wyatt and a rebound and follow by Logan Dunbar kept it close early.

  • IN THE WORD: The Christian who willfully sins

    A preacher and I were talking the other day about how Jesus Christ was coming back to judge his church. A lot of church members think Jesus is coming back to judge the world. The way I read my bible, the church is supposed to set an example to the world. But it seems we have failed in many ways.
