  • LETTER: Recycling center is cleaned up

    If you haven’t been to the recycling center on Industrial Road recently, I suggest you check it out. It’s been thoroughly cleaned and organized, with signage directing placement of paper, cardboard, aluminum, tin and plastic. Let’s help keep it clean and organized – please don’t use the site for a dump.

  • LETTER: EDA director, board say thank you

    The Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the business owners, residents and individuals that have supported and encouraged this entity.
    We say goodbye with heavy hearts. The mission of this office was business recruitment and business retention. Promoting and marketing this community, building bridges with surrounding counties and cultivating relationships with elected representatives on both state and national levels.

  • LETTER: Support HR 1489

    It is now a little less than three years since we came within an eyelash of a total collapse of the economy. Our elected “leaders” in Washington stubbornly cling to their claims that we are simply in a recession. Those who brought about the meltdown are still raking in billions in bonuses. “Too big to fail” financial institutions are bigger than ever.
    As a people, we seem incapable of learning from history.

  • LETTER: City, county have made ‘huge mistake’

    Taylorsville, what have you done? Having read all the ups and downs regarding the EDA, I wonder if the city and county officials even know what they have done by eliminating EDA and losing Annette King.
    Yes, anyone can be replaced, but no replacement will ever be able to fill these shoes.

  • LETTER: Don’t get along just to get along

    Can’t we all just get along?
    You hear that stated all the time, but if our founding fathers had just all got along we would still be a British Colony. There are times to get along and times to dissent. Dissension is good, it causes thought and discussion, but some can’t discuss, they want to argue and suggest their way is the best way and there’s no need for change or you’re just negative and causing trouble. They may form a defensive circle to ward off any constructive criticism and shut you out.

  • LETTER: Donations needed for military baseball event

    The Knights of Columbus of All Saints Catholic Church hit a “homerun” for our troops in Afghanistan by their generous donation to Guard Duty, Inc., to ship over to Afghanistan supplies for the “SFC Sammy – Chevy, Baseball and Apple Pie Event,” an all-American day of playing baseball, popcorn, peanuts, Cracker Jacks and apple pie for our combat troops.
    The Knights financial aid will help ship to Afghanistan the ball equipment plus four cases of apple pies, two cases that were generously donated by a Taylorsville grocer.

  • LETTER: Thanks for free sports physicals

    On behalf of Spencer County Middle and High schools, I would like to express our sincere gratitude to Dr. Thomas Crain (Creekside Family Medical) and Becky House (Spencer County Physical Therapy) for hosting their annual sports physical clinic.
    On June 18, 76 student athletes received free sports physicals. This marks roughly 10 years of service that they have graciously provided to our community. How very lucky we are.

  • LETTER: Citizens need to seek answers from city commission

    I would like to take this opportunity to thank the editor for the editorial “Open the doors on city government” in the May 18, 2011 paper.
    On Tuesday, May 10,  I attended the Taylorsville City Commission meeting and was very surprised to see no residents there. This prompted me to write this letter to the editor.

  • LETTER: Here's hoping 'more godliness will rise'

    Through my employment here in town and work with a local military/veteran support organization, I have grown to know and love many of the fine people of Taylorsville and Spencer County.

  • LETTER: Thanks for making Habitat golf scramble a success

    The sixth annual Spencer County Habitat for Humanity Golf Scramble was June 11 at  Tanglewood Golf Course.  More than 70 golfers from all over Kentucky participated in this outpouring of community support.

    Mother Nature cooperated, the golf course was in great shape, numerous volunteers watched for the golfers to make a hole-in-one and the golfers generously donated to Spencer County Habitat by buying “skirts,” “mulligans” and door prize tickets.
