  • Holiday cheer in Mt. Eden

    The community of Mt. Eden has a long-standing tradition of coming together to celebrate Christmas in Mt. Eden.

    “It has been going on as long as I can remember,” said Shana Milburn. “And I am 26 years old.”

    For decades, these folks have gathered to share food, music from local churches, and crafts while then visiting with Santa.

    This is the first time for mother/daughter team Angela and Shana Milburn to organize the event. Although both said they were amazed at the amount of support coming from their neighbors.

    “We may not have large corporations backing us,” said Becky Wilson of the Family Resource Center, “But our main resource is this community, and they come through.”

    It is time for Shop-With-a-Cop again. Spencer County Sheriff’s Deputy Kyle Bennett takes charge of getting the funds and the adults together while Wilson and the others from the Family Resource Center get the children together for this annual event.

    Without the community’s help, these kids may go without ,according to Wilson.

  • New elementary to be considered

    As Spencer County’s two elementary schools prepare to exceed their enrollment capacity, the district’s facilities planning committee was reconvened last Thursday to discuss the options.

    Committee members were told that any newly-built elementary school in Kentucky is required to not exceed a capacity of 600 students.

    But that causes a problem for school officials who said that the county would be better served with a new school that could handle as many as 800 students.

  • EMS: We’re not to blame

    In a written response to the wrongful death suit filed by the parents of Tiffany Troka, an attorney representing several of the defendants stated that EMS workers named in the suit are not at fault.

    “Basically (our answer to the suit) denies all liability of Spencer County and Shelby County fiscal courts and the emergency service personnel that I represent,” said Attorney Carol Petitt. “It also says damages were caused by her negligence or the negligence of a third party.”
