  • LETTER: Lake clean-up next Saturday

    The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Association (TLCA) is once again hosting a lake clean-up on September 27. The event kicks off at the Possum Ridge pavilions at the State Park at 8 am. The clean-up will end by 12 p.m. with lunch, prizes, T-shirts, and an environmental education program from the Kentucky Fish and Wildlife.

  • LETTER: School buses are under-appreciated

    To my surprise on Thursday August 28, I found out that another stop was being added to my children’s bus route. Frustrated, I contacted the transportation department to find out what was going on, since my children were already on the bus after school for an hour.

    As I talked with Jack Senior, I began to realize that it wasn’t only frustrating for me as a parent, but also for Jack and his staff as well.

  • LETTER: Nobody important

     I admit it up front:  I’m nobody important.  I’m just a wife and mother of two boys and a girl, living life to the best down here in beautiful Spencer County, Kentucky.

  • BLOG UPDATE WED.: From the front lines at the RNC

    WEDNESDAY

    We slept in a bit after a late night. Lynn went out with some delegates to a Styx concert and arrived back at the hotel at some unearthly hour. In the morning (late morning) I went to the Minneapolis Convention Center to see and help with the relief efforts for the hurricane. The bicycle donation ride by Humana was up and going and the volunteers were busy at the convention hall assembling relief packages. It gave me a great feeling to watch people helping other folks unconditionally.

  • LETTER: School board is not listening

    I attended the August school board meeting and was very disappointed and angry over the outcome. 

    A ruling was handed down by Jack Conway stating that it was illegal to have a closed meeting to discuss the evaluation of our superintendent.  Yet, instead of accepting that, some of our board members have decided to use money which could be well spent in our schools, to fight this ruling.  And they have the nerve to say they are doing what is right for our children.
