  • Networking works for business

    When it comes to promoting your business, word of mouth can sometimes be the best form of advertisement.

    At least that’s what Brian Helm has discovered while working as a financial advisor for Edward Jones Investments for the past eight years.

    His office can be found along a congested road in Southern Louisville known as Dixie Highway. Nestled amid the many restaurant chains, gas stations and retail stores – it can be difficult for small businesses to stand out in a crowd.

  • Faith For Today: Put God in Control

     James 1:5-8 “If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, nothing wavering. For he that wavereth is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think that he shall receive anything of the Lord. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.”

  • Native American gathering this weekend

    History comes alive this weekend as Native Americans from across the country gather at Waterford Park for the 10th annual Ohio River Native American Intertribal Community festival.

  • Water shutoff closes offices

    County offices will be closed next Wednesday due to a scheduled disruption in water service for residents and businesses located within Taylorsville’s floodwall.

    Spencer County Judge Executive David Jenkins said the decision was made Tuesday afternoon to close all county offices primarily because employees would not have access to functioning restroom facilities.

    “I know this may cause some inconvenience but please bear with us as the City of Taylorsville makes necessary repairs to the water system in Taylorsville,” said Jenkins.

  • Playing close is no longer good enough

    New age. Kentucky football old-timers have to love it when Rich Brooks gruffs up, turns pit bull after a loss, any loss. The Wildcats boss did his Schwartzkopf best growl & bark after seeing the Alabama game film.

    Three Crimson Tide turnovers produced nothing. Grrrrr.

    Offensive line failed to open a crack for tiny Tony Dixon, and quarterback Michael Hartline had barely a nanosecond to deliver passes to pass droppers dressed up as pass receivers. Grrrrrr.

  • Jr. Stallions win Last home game

    The Jr. Stallions win their last season home game against the Lyndon Lightning 32-13.  The coaching staff stressed to the team Sunday that, for some of the older players, this may be the last time they step onto TES field.  The boys took those words to heart.  The Stallions came up big on defense with a fumble recovery by Chance Halberg,  two key interceptions by Michael Woodward and C.J.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Denying information at taxpayers’ expense

    Have you been following the actions of your Spencer County School Board lately? Well you should, because whether they are spending $300 or $300,000 in a lawsuit against fellow board member Sandy Clevenger, that’s your tax money they are using. Tax money to essentially deny you – and every other taxpayer in the county – the right to know how board members individually evaluate the superintendent’s performance.
