  • 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.

  • From our readers - Former resident remembers Dr. Skaggs
  • From our readers - Girls who raised money for shelter say thank you

    We would like to thank the community, friends, and family for donating money and supplies to our fundraiser Club Happy Dog that benefits the Spencer County Animal Shelter.  With your donations we were able to exceed our goal of raising over $100. Thank you so much for loving the dogs as much as we do.

  • Campaign ‘16 taught us lessons

    If you’re reading this, it means the sun came up this morning despite the direst of warnings and predictions of those who thought Tuesday’s election was going to be the end of it all.

    We survived apparently, and while I write this on Tuesday morning with no idea who is going to be our next president, or even if the there’s been an official declaration of a winner yet, I’m at least somewhat confident that life will go on.

  • Halloween event is a treat

    Monday night’s Trick or Treat on Main Street was yet another reminder of why life in a small town can’t be beat.

    The annual Halloween event is truly a family gathering of good fun, lots of candy, plenty of smiles and some of the cutest kids who open their bags wide in the hopes for plenty of treats.

    They came as ghouls, pirates, firemen and soldiers. Some dressed as princesses, fairies, bunnies and witches. Plenty of the adults got into the spirit as well, dressing up and joining in on the fun.
