  • Young leaders on display in our schools

    I recently had the opportunity to be a part of the “Learning from our Leaders” program hosted by Spencer County and Taylorsville Elementary Schools. Several local community leaders were invited to attend the event at the Cooperative Extension Office in Taylorsville and it was a pretty great opportunity to meet with our young people and work with them on a school related project.
    District-wide, students are working on the Leader in Me program which seeks to train students on what it means to be successful leaders and contributing members to society.

  • Editorial: We need a plan for economic development

    Our recent interview with Property Valuation Administrator Kim Stump left us feeling good about the improved state of the economy in Spencer County, at least in so far as new housing is on the rise. However, it left us a little more concerned that commercial development is not only continuing to lag in this county, but seems to be going backwards. While new property assessments are just the tip of the overall iceberg of economic development, the figures do point to trends which are both good and bad.

    Riley is the leader the county needs
    Our county is in desperate need for leadership that will bring people together, no matter their political, social or economical position, to work for the ultimate goal of growing Spencer County in a positive direction.
    John Riley without question is that leader.

  • Shelby county steps up to the plate

    Recently our community suffered a tragic loss with the fire and destruction of the Mt. Eden Fire Station. Since then we have witnessed quite a bit of public outpouring in support of the brave individuals who serve the department.
    We have been moved by the actions of citizens throughout the area who have given their time and money in support of the department.
    Specifically we would like to thank the people of Shelby county, who have stepped up to the plate, so to speak, and have hit a home run in helping their neighbors in Mt. Eden.

  • LETTER: Riley fails to give account for past transgressions

    John Riley yet again fails to give an account for his past transgressions against taxpayers, but instead chooses to create and embrace a lie and distortion to remove all attention away from the real issues he is being exposed on! Riley stated in a political ad that the negative political attacks of the quote, Cheek/Trageser campaign ad were taking Spencer County in the wrong direction.

  • Election season is the time to step up or shut up

    Elections are an important part of what it means to be American. Every two years we are treated to very significant and important elections, not just for our local races but for the national races as well.
    During these election cycles, those people who are dissatisfied with the current state of affairs can either run for public office themselves or back candidates that they feel are more in line with their particular points of view.
