  • LETTER: Where is the outrage?

    Last week I was listening to an expert panel of economists and their future forecast is one that should trouble the entire world.  For the first time in my life I have become “economically frightened.”  Not for myself, but for my children, my grandchildren and all the young people of this country. 

  • Pfeiffer signs with Campbellsville to play soccer

    Friday, January 23rd was a special day in the life of SCHS senior Shelby Pfeiffer. Not only did she help the Lady Bears get a big basketball win over Atherton, and get crowned homecoming queen, but Pfeiffer decided where she would spend the next four years of her life.

    Pfeiffer signed her national letter of intent with NCCAA Mideast coach of the year, Thom Jones and Campbellsville University to play soccer. It was a memorable ceremony as 10 of the 11 returning Lady Tigers were  at the signing to welcome Shelby to the team.

  • FROM THE MAYOR: A community that pulled together

    The following is a partial letter I wrote to a good friend of mine who lives in San Juan, Puerto Rico, where the weather has been 82 degrees with sunshine and warm island breezes.  While tropical winds were blowing south of us, we were in the midst of one of the worst winter ice storms on record.

     

    “Dear Jim,

  • LETTER: Thanks for helping during ice storm

    I just wanted to commend those that manned the Emergency Shelter during the ice storm week before last.  Specifically, JD Fleming and his family.  JD is an EMT and he worked almost 24 hours a day to monitor the shelter which served several people with medical conditions.  No matter how tired he was, he always had a smile on his face and was ready to tackle whatever needed to be done.

  • Bears win big over Bullitt Central

    The Spencer County Bears recovered from a long layoff and a lopsided loss to Anderson County last week to put together their best performance of the season in a 86-81 win at Bullitt Central on Saturday.

    The Bears got balanced scoring and unselfish passing in besting the Cougars in a game that had been postponed due to bad weather a week before.

  • Overturned truck causes 10 hours of backroad touring for motorists

    A late night propane truck accident on KY 44 resulted in a hectic Wednesday morning for motorists last week as authorities were forced to re-route traffic along Spencer County’s secondary roads for more than 10 hours.

  • Grand jury to hear evidence in shooting death

    The murder case against Raymond Revard will be heard by a Spencer County Grand Jury, said District Judge Linda Armstrong at a preliminary hearing Friday, after she determined there was sufficient evidence to proceed.

  • LETTER: Taxes, charters and random thoughts

    Since some of us had to cut back on what we spend at local businesses (producing local jobs)because of the new tax on our homeowners insurance, what does the county government plan for an encore?  A tax on taxes?

     Why are high schools changing their school colors to black?  Are black uniforms cheaper than blue ones?  Are they just copying off UofL?  If UofL people jump off the bridge, will high school people jump too?
