  • LETTER: Thank you, from Carmin Gaines

    I want to thank all the numerous people who helped me with my campaign to be Spencer County judge-executive.  There are too many names to list, but many of you made phone calls on my behalf, talked to your friends and family, put my campaign signs in your yard,  and several even went door-to-door to help get out the vote for me.  I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and support.   

  • LETTER: "Time for healing" after election

    The May 2010 primary is over.  All the candidates did their best to get the votes they did.  I know I did and I thank those good people who gave me their vote.  These next months must be a time for healing within our community as we move forward to the fall elections.  Let’s get behind the candidates and vote our consciences for the best government leadership we need and deserve.

  • LETTER: Riley gives support to Karrer

    I want to take this opportunity to thank the Spencer County Republican voters for taking an interest in the important primary election process to determine the best candidates to represent the Republican Party in the general elections in November.

  • LETTER: Thanks for donating

    The Spencer County Lions Club would like to thank everyone who donated to the Lions Club. Special thanks to the ones that played the music, our church family and to everyone who supported our effort in anyway. It really turned out well.

  • GUEST COLUMN: The growing cost of government

    A failed economic stimulus, a massive health care bill, never-ending government bailouts – the liberal Democrats who control Washington keep spending your money, and they’re out of control. Recent events across the Atlantic have given us a glimpse at one possible future if our country continues down its current course.

  • LETTER: Correction to Greenwell letter

    Just a slight correction to the “letter to the editor” from Linda Greewell regarding Bill Karrer.

    I was the LG&E representive on the massive petition project to provide LG&E Natural Gas to Taylorsville/Spencer County.

  • LETTER: EDA is a 'great asset'

    The Economic Development Authority, Inc. of Spencer County is a great asset to our community. Annette King, the executive director, has her finger on the pulse of this community. Her wisdom and patience helped me attain my dream of opening a business in Taylorsville.
