  • LETTER: Cemetery should respect flag

    My brother, Mark Robinson, was a veteran of the United States Army. He proudly served his country and defended it to anyone with respect and vigor. Sadly, he developed a rare form and cancer and died in 2001. We buried him at Valley Cemetery,Taylorsville, Kentucky, next to the Grandparents he loved so much.

    The Kentucky Department of Education and a whole host of other taxpayer-funded education organizations are trying to influence a local court into allowing the Spencer County Board of Education to continue evaluating the superintendent’s performance in secret.

    Our superintendent who:

    • administers a yearly school budget of $20.7 million (comprised of local, state and federal tax monies);

    The things that have changed the face of Taylorsville should be applauded and more should be done as soon as economic recovery and grants allow.

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: Positive role model

    It was Signature HealthCare’s first Hall of Fame Cafe awards program  – designed to celebrate the lives and achievements of their residents, employees and members of the community.
