  • From our readers - Thanks for all who helped make election go smoothly

    The election is finally completed and I’m sure that, like me, you are relieved. The changes were many both in the Commonwealth and nationally. As a County Board of Election member, we were preparing for a large turnout and the questions that result from so many newly registered voters and voters who haven’t cast a ballot in awhile. The citizens were definitely motivated this year.

  • From our readers - Veterans deserve thanks every day of the year

    Fewer than 10 percent of Americans can claim the title of veteran. Far less than one percent of our population is currently defending us in the global war on terrorism. And yet, so many seem intent on trying to balance the budget by diminishing the quality of life programs designed for the veterans who have already disproportionately made sacrifices.

  • From our readers - Thanks church for election hospitality

    On behalf of the poll workers at Spencer Christian Church, we want to thank SCC for its great and continuing hospitality. Not only to us, but for their honoring veterans who came to vote. It was truly a gesture of Christianity that will not be forgotten.

  • Thank God this ain’t Portland

    On Thursday night, I watched young people marching in the streets, crying and cursing. I saw footage of college-aged people burning flags, dismembering effigies of Donald Trump and then saw footage from Portland Oregon of windows being smashed and rocks being thrown at police.

    It was enough to make you lose complete faith in the next generation.

  • What does the election mean for Spencer Co?

    As Spencer County Judge Executive, I’d like to share what I believe last Tuesday’s historic election means for Spencer County.  

    First, Spencer County had the highest percentage of registered voter turnout (67.88%) than all of the other 119 counties in Kentucky.  We clearly are not the largest in population of the 120 Kentucky counties, but our voters take elections seriously enough to show up and vote, on a percentage basis more so than any other county in Kentucky.

  • Distraction of lawsuit threatens progress

    The great enemy of progress is not always direct opposition, often its simply distraction.

    That seems to be the case in Spencer County and Taylorsville these days as there is a group of citizens who have come forward with much energy, good ideas and genuine concern for the community as they try to set the Taylorsville Strategic Plan into action.

  • From our readers - Accident victim thanks those who helped

    Hi. My name is Gaberialla. My friends and family call me Gabby. I am six years old.

    On Wednesday, October 26, I was in a car accident along with my mommy, my little sister, my twin little brothers and two of my cousins in Mt. Eden at the intersection of 248 and 636.

    I just wanted to thank everyone that helped me and my family. We are all very thankful for the fast actions and quick thinking to take care of each person involved.
