  • A stinging election

    Remember when you were a kid going to the doctor and he said, “This might sting a little.”  You know no matter what, that needle was going to hurt.  Right shoulder, left shoulder, or some other spot, that big, shiny needle was going to sting a Lot!  Nowadays, I can get a shot without flinching,. Most people can, but I don’t know anyone that enjoys it.  It is just one of those things we have to endure for our health.

  • Grace Chapel honors pastor


    The congregation at Grace Chapel Church of God of Prophecy recently held a Pastor’s Appreciation event in honor of Rev. Dave and Diana Hutch. The congregation cited the couple’s skill in music, counseling and compassion, and for encouraging children, youth and ministries of all ages at the church.

  • Love My Neighbor chili supper fundraiser


    A chili supper fundraiser was held Saturday for Love My Neighbor’s new facility on Garrard Street. The ministry has been closed for nearly a year as construction continues, and organizers said there’s a possibility it may be open for business by Christmas. They said they are most grateful for the volunteers and donations that have allowed the ministry to be debt-free with this new construction, which gives them significantly more room than their previous location. At least seven local churches have been actively involved in the ministry.

  • Stump vs. County

    A hearing into Sheriff Buddy Stump’s lawsuit against the Spencer County Fiscal Court may be held on Monday.

    Spencer County Attorney Ken Jones said Monday evening that the date for the hearing, which was originally set to be held today in Spencer Circuit Court, has been moved to Monday, but as of Tuesday morning, there was no time specified. The Spencer County Fiscal Court will meet Monday morning, which means parties in the suit may wrap up their regular meeting and then walk across the street to the hearing.

  • Clown siting near school recorded

    A lone clown holding a red balloon and standing at the edge of the woods was enough to raise a red flag of concern for some Spencer County parents last week after their daughter captured the image on video.

  • Strategic planning group seeks more citizen input

    The effort to put the City of Taylorsville’s Strategic Plan into action continued last week, with a meeting of various committees and a call for increased involvement from citizens who want to see progress.

    More than three dozen people met at the City Hall Annex last Tuesday to hear updates on some of the projects, such as the levee trail and marketing and tourism development.

    Marty Nemes, who is serving on the Recreation, Tourism and Marketing committee chaired the meeting and said it’s important for the various groups to convene on a regular basis.

  • Halloween event is a treat

    Monday night’s Trick or Treat on Main Street was yet another reminder of why life in a small town can’t be beat.

    The annual Halloween event is truly a family gathering of good fun, lots of candy, plenty of smiles and some of the cutest kids who open their bags wide in the hopes for plenty of treats.

    They came as ghouls, pirates, firemen and soldiers. Some dressed as princesses, fairies, bunnies and witches. Plenty of the adults got into the spirit as well, dressing up and joining in on the fun.

  • From our readers - Don’t leave presidential ballot blank, look at platforms

    If you plan to leave the Presidential choice blank on your ballot, then step back and look at the party platforms. There is no such thing as the perfect candidate or the perfect party. Never in history have the two party platforms been more opposite. Democrat platform equals more government control over your life by way of left wing federal judges and left wing Supreme Court judges. Don’t leave it blank. Speak up for your values.

  • From our readers - Supports Trump

    To my Christian friends,

    As you know, our freedoms in this country are under attack. The left is out to take over our government.

    Hillary Clinton has said we are going to have to convince these people to change their minds. She is talking about Christians and their beliefs in the Bible about homosexuality Read between the lines - she will use everything at her disposal to take our rights away.
