  • On behalf of the Taylorsville-Spencer County Fire Protection District, I would like to thank everyone that supported this year’s WHAS Crusade for Children.  Special thanks to Assistant Chief Richard Morris for overseeing our crusade efforts this year and also TSCFD Explorer Post 981 for all of their hard work.  Each firefighter took time out of their busy schedule to give to this worth while cause.

    Our community once again showed its support for special needs children by donating $27,657.76.  Thank You!

  • This is a note of heart-felt gratitude to those responsible for our county being wet (Bear with me, I’m trying to look at this in a positive way). 

    I am glad to see some progress in our little county in the last seven months since you voted in alcohol sales.  I have noticed that you were right … new businesses have moved here. 

  • After the long, bitter, cold winter we experienced in Kentucky, I have found comfort – for once in my life – with the arrival of 90 degree weather. With it came the  arrival of Memorial Day – generally recognized as the beginning of summer.

  • I appeal to all Spencer Countians, please do not let any events of the past year affect your giving to our Crusade for Children.

    Our fire departments fear some backlash, but will be out there giving it their effort. Please join their effort with a donation to this wonderful cause. Don’t wait to be called on. Send them a check or deliver them a donation and try to make their effort a little easier.

    Remember, this is still one of the premier charitable efforts in all of these United States and it needs you to stay that way.

  • I would like to thank everyone for the support they gave me in my run for Magistrate District 4. It was a close race. Thanks for all the voters that came out.

  • I want to thank all the numerous people who helped me with my campaign to be Spencer County judge-executive.  There are too many names to list, but many of you made phone calls on my behalf, talked to your friends and family, put my campaign signs in your yard,  and several even went door-to-door to help get out the vote for me.  I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and support.   

  • The May 2010 primary is over.  All the candidates did their best to get the votes they did.  I know I did and I thank those good people who gave me their vote.  These next months must be a time for healing within our community as we move forward to the fall elections.  Let’s get behind the candidates and vote our consciences for the best government leadership we need and deserve.

  • I want to take this opportunity to thank the Spencer County Republican voters for taking an interest in the important primary election process to determine the best candidates to represent the Republican Party in the general elections in November.

  • The Spencer County Lions Club would like to thank everyone who donated to the Lions Club. Special thanks to the ones that played the music, our church family and to everyone who supported our effort in anyway. It really turned out well.

  • A failed economic stimulus, a massive health care bill, never-ending government bailouts – the liberal Democrats who control Washington keep spending your money, and they’re out of control. Recent events across the Atlantic have given us a glimpse at one possible future if our country continues down its current course.

  • Just a slight correction to the “letter to the editor” from Linda Greewell regarding Bill Karrer.

    I was the LG&E representive on the massive petition project to provide LG&E Natural Gas to Taylorsville/Spencer County.

  • The Economic Development Authority, Inc. of Spencer County is a great asset to our community. Annette King, the executive director, has her finger on the pulse of this community. Her wisdom and patience helped me attain my dream of opening a business in Taylorsville.

  • The events that lead to the decision by the General Assembly to pass Senate Bill 88 were regrettable and Kentucky Association of Counties (KACo) has taken full responsibility for those relating to our association. More importantly, the board of directors of KACo took steps well in advance of that legislation that put us in compliance with most of its provision even before it was passed.

  • The Spencer County Middle School extends a big THANK YOU to all the volunteers who assisted teachers and students during the 2009-10 school year.  SCMS appreciates and values your wonderful talents and volunteer services.

  • On April 12, I started a 1,400 mile bike ride across Kentucky in support of Dr. Daniel Mongiardo for U.S. Senate.  I’m 67-years old – a veteran, an author and Kentucky’s first Unbridled Spirit award winner.  But my most important role is a grandfather to thirteen grandchildren. 

  • With all the sacrifices and hardship that our military men and women go through for the defense of our nation, it saddens me to know that some unappreciative person stole monies from a collection box that was used to help pay for the shipping of 200 boxes of Girl Scout cookies to the 1-502th INF, Afghanistan!

  • As a Taylorsville precinct resident, I am planning to vote for Richard Travelstead as this district’s magistrate.

    I have known Richard for over four years beginning back in the days when Guard Duty was forming. Richard is an Army veteran and was very interested in helping get the organization going. Along with being on its executive board, he was instrumental in securing our non-profit status.

  • We are nearing the time when many young people will celebrate a lifetime of accomplishments as they graduate from high school and move toward their life goals.  Family and friends will gather together for a festive occasion to commemorate this awesome milestone.

    Traditionally, this is also a time when alcohol enters into the mix and brings tragic results for all involved.  Alcohol is the most commonly used drug among American youth and it kills 5,000 teens every year.

  • I am Linda Greenwell.  When I moved to Spencer County in 1992, I met Bill Karrer and was impressed with his knowledge of government, the political process as well as his eagerness and willingness to work hard for the county without benefit of an elected office.  His goal was not a job, but a better operating county government and improved community in which to live and raise his family, while benefiting the families of his friends and neighbors.
