  • LETTER: Vandalism of war memorial needs to stop

    I am writing this letter because I was appalled when I attended the POW/MIA Memorial Service September 19 in front of the Veterans Monument and Wall of Honor to find out from the maintenance worker that once again there is vandalism being done to this Memorial. He informed those in attendance that the names of soldiers that have served this great country are being ripped off and thrown in the street to be run over by cars or walked on by pedestrians. He has picked them up and placed them back on the Wall of Honor.

  • LETTER: Victim treated unfairly

    I want people to know that Kristen Edmondson Grubb has been unfairly treated by a Louisville television station. She was portrayed as a bad person, but Kristen is a loving mother, a great friend to many people and loved by all of her family.

  • LETTER: Lake sweep a success

    The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Association would like to thank all of those that helped us with the 9th annual Taylorsville Lake Clean Sweep on Sept 27. Thanks to everyone involved we were able to clean up approximately 60 yards of trash and had 272 volunteers that helped with efforts to help keep Taylorsville Lake the most beautiful lake in the region.   Along with several individuals, 9 Girl Scout Troops, 2 Cub Scout Packs and 1 youth group helped out with the clean up.

  • LETTER: Just wondering

    I have a few more questions about the place we love:

    Why was gas 13 cents cheaper in Shelbyville this morning than it was here?  (That’s 16 cents with a Wal-Mart gift card, folks!)

  • LETTER: In support of Clevenger

    Thank you for your Matter of Opinion article this week!  It’s about time somebody called a spade a spade. 

    Sandy Clevenger has done nothing but stand up for our kids in this district! She always has “doing the right thing” at the top of list of things to do.  She researches when she needs an answer and doesn’t give in to peer pressure.  She isn’t looking for her name in the paper or for friends in high places.  She is here for all the right reasons. 

  • LETTER: Thanks to Veterans Day contributors

    Guard Duty, a non-profit organization supporting our military and veterans, is proud to announce the sponsors and contributors of this year’s Guard Duty’s 2008 Veterans Day Celebration, November 8, Taylorsville.

    On behalf of Guard Duty and the veterans of Spencer County, we thank the following for their generous contributions:

  • LETTER: Becoming a tourist destination

    Thanks to all the volunteers who made Spencer County and Taylorsville the best it could be over the past three weekends.

    Starting with the First Annual Taylorsville Kentucky Heritage Festival; hundreds of people from all around the region, including international Ryder Cup guests, enjoyed a wonderful mix of fine Kentucky art, antiques, folk music and home town hospitality.  Nice work Main Street Committee!

  • LETTER: October is Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness month

    In 1988, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed October to be Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month in the United States. The U.S. congress officially recognized October 15 as Pregnancy and Infant Loss Remembrance Day in 2006. I just wanted to invite everyone to light a candle at 7 p.m. on October 15 and keep it burning for at least one hour in your local area in memory of all of our babies that were taken too soon.
