  • LETTER: Get educated about agriculture

    March 13-19 marked the annual observation of National Agriculture Week. This is an occasion when agriculture organizations try to draw attention to the importance of farmers and our agriculture industry.

  • LETTER: Bears led by example

    As we stood on the Henry County gym floor humble in defeat searching for words to express our feelings to those heartbroken young players, I said, “Thanks for a great season. We love you and, man, what a ride we had.”
    We were blessed with great young men playing their hearts out, great fans cheering their hearts out and a great community supporting us along the way with all their heart. Except for an ankle injury to one of the team leaders, we might have been cheering and playing in Rupp.

  • LETTER: Salute our community heroes

    When we think of heroes, we often think of the bravery shown by firefighters, policemen, soldiers and the citizen who jumps in Taylorsville Lake to save a drowning child. They are truly heroes.
    But I have in mind another kind of hero: the heroes who show love and compassion to the elderly and disabled who need help with daily care, special training to regain strength and functioning, intensive medical monitoring, and/or mental stimulation. Mostly, they need love, attention, respect and unconditional positive regard.

  • LETTER: Thanks from the basketball team

    On behalf of the Spencer County High School boys’ varsity basketball team and coaching staff, I would like to thank Dairy Queen of Taylorsville for hosting the meet-and-greet following our 30th District Championship win. Manager Bob Gill and his staff are to be commended for their continued support of Spencer County athletics.

  • LETTER: Believe in the Bears

    Too often we read of nothing but negativity in our community. We have lived in Spencer County for nearly 13 years, but here recently there has been a surge of community like I have never seen before in Spencer County supporting our Bears basketball team. Community members are rallying behind each other. I know some may say it is only a basketball game, but it is much more than that.

  • LETTER: Brock will become ‘part of the community’
  • LETTER: Thanks to judge-executive

    I would like to thank Bill Karrer for taking over the budget of the county clerk. The fees collected by this department from the residents of Spencer County should be used for the good of the entire county, not for the benefit of the county clerk and staff.

  • LETTER: Toys for tots thank you

    Taylorsville Toys for Tots would like to thank those who made the 2010 toy drive a success. Those businesses and individuals who supported the program include: Spencer Youth Service and the Family Resource Centers, First Christian Church, Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Department, Salt River Antique Power Association, Walter and Louise Hahn, Envision Salon, Barrel Smoked BBQ, Taylorsville Dairy Queen, O’Driscoll’s Spirits, Family Diner, The Tea Cup, Elite Dental and Dr. James Ransdell of Elk Creek Dental.

  • LETTER: Resident too negative

    I am a 26-year-old resident of Spencer County. I have lived here all my life. As an adult, I have purchased older property in Taylorsville and questioned the weathered property lines. I called my dad for best advice on identifying where my markers are. He referred me to Curtis Ochs, saying, “He’s the man to see for any surveying questions. He knows this county front and back.”

  • LETTER: ‘Grandparents raising grandchildren’ workshop helpful

    The past four Tuesdays, we attended a “Grandparents Raising Grandchildren” seminar sponsored by the Spencer County Family Resource Center. It was held in the library meeting room.
