  • LETTER: Paper irreplacable

    As we pass through the time of our community we sometimes forget we are leaving an indelible trail of our concerns, conclusions, rational and irrational judgments. We sometimes do not remember that the local newspaper serves more than just expressing current news.  It also forever reflects how things were accomplished (or not accomplished), whose influence prevailed, and why a community developed the way it did. It illustrates in detail the feelings, judgments, reasons and influence of the community’s leaders, would-be leaders and its citizens.

  • LETTER: Thanks to trail volunteers

    Last Saturday it drizzled cold rain all day long - the weather was awful!  In spite of that over 40 volunteers from all around the region showed up to help clear the multi use trails at Taylorsville Lake State Park that suffered ice storm damage.  It only took half a day with all these volunteers and donated equipment to clear almost all of the 22 miles of trails.  Park management will let us know when the trails will be officially opened - which should be soon.  Once again volunteers have stepped up to get the job done!  We are taking more and more pride and owners

  • LETTER: Gracie, one of God’s creatures

    She laid downcast and huddled in a small kennel at an animal supply store. One mat, one bowl, no attention from the customers. Her eyes no longer held the shine of a beloved pet, her body language gave no sign of hope. She was alone…forgotten. Her frail, abused, and severely malnourished body did not attract any potential new owner. Her abuser did a good job of breaking her spirit.

  • LETTER: Response to “Floodwall failure” story
  • LETTER: Thanks for helping Dare to Care

    Those involved with First Baptist Church of Taylorsville’s Dare to Care ministry would like to extend a special thanks to Country Mart, Faulkner Meats, Painters Local #118 of Louisville and the Taylorsville Masonic Lodge #210 for their donations.

    These efforts would not be possible without great community support.

  • LETTER: Lady Bear pride

    “1,2,3 PRIDE!” is something the Lady Bears basketball team has been saying for years. We say this because we have pride in ourselves, each other, and most importantly our team.

  • LETTER: New memories being made at the Sanctuary

    On the second Saturday and fourth Friday monthly our neighbors and friends John and Judy Shircliff open their doors to the community.

    They are the proud new owners of the old building across from Smitty’s, as we all call, it on Main Street in Taylorsville.

  • LETTER: Project Graduation, for the safety of kids

    I am writing this letter to inform the Community of Taylorsville that April is Alcohol Awareness Month. Spring is just days away now, high school seniors are winding down and thoughts now turn to celebrating those achievements and many will feel pressure to drink alcohol during prom and graduation night activities.
