  • Revard hearing set for February

    The preliminary hearing for Raymond J. Revard, Jr. scheduled last Friday has been postponed until February 13.

    Revard, 41, was charged January 15 by Spencer County Sheriff’s Department with murder and tampering with physical evidence in relation to the shooting death of his wife, Lea Revard, 39.

    According to court documents, Revard’s family has hired attorney Stephen H. Miller of Fore, Miller and Schwartz in Louisville.

  • Thousands without power

    Widespread power outages have left thousands in the county without electricity -- and many without means to cook or heat their homes. In response, local authorities opened an emergency shelter at Spencer County High School Wednesday afternoon to provide residents with a warm, safe place to go.

    If residents can not get to the shelter, local authorities advised anyone in need to call Spencer Dispatch at 477-5533 and a ride will be provided. Currently 30 cots are available, but more could be obtained through the American Red Cross if needed.

  • In Louisville, Dallas and Baton Rouge What were these men thinking?

    Louisville, Dallas and Baton Rouge ... incidents recently remind us that we can do better.

    At Louisville’s PRP high school, if the allegation is proved, coach David Jason Stinson ordered sophomore Max Gilpin to run in 94-degree heat until somebody quit the team. Gilpin collapsed and three days later, died.

    Why?

    Indicted by a grand jury, Stinson will explain at trial what he was seeing  and thinking on a gruelling hot afternoon last August.

  • Three quarters of good play

    For three quarters, Spencer County competed toe to toe with one of the hottest teams from the 7th region, but Louisville Atherton used a huge lead they built in the first quarter to leave Taylorsville with a 86-70 win over the young Bears Friday night.

    “This is one of those games that was much closer than the score indicated. Atherton is a great team and will probably contend for the 7th region title, for us to play them that close showed a lot of heart and improvement,” said head coach Jacob Barmore.

  • FROM THE WORD: Caring for poor is required

    I know this is not going to be the most popular article I have written. During the holiday season as I looked at my table and saw so much I thought of all the people who did not have what I had. Even though I am not a rich man in terms of worldly things, I am rich in heavenly things – and that is much better.

    Now let’s take a look at what the bible says about the poor and the rich.

  • LETTER: Contact legislatures about cigarette tax

    Kentucky lawmakers are on the verge of a crucial decision in the coming weeks – whether to support Gov. Steve Beshear’s call to raise the tax on a pack of cigarettes from 30 cents to $1. As I finish out my tenure as Kentucky’s education commissioner, I am championing that action.
