  • Avoid a P.C. Christmas

    Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is no longer deemed appropriate television for children because it normalizes bullying, bad parenting and catagorizing people as outcasts. That’s the latest charge from the political correctness authorities.
    Meanwhile, at least one radio station has decided it will no longer play the winter song “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” because some knuckleheads think it’s a celebration of date rape. Really? Have they been paying attention to the sordid lyrics of what passes as popular music these days?

  • Christmas on Main this Saturday evening

    This weekend, if you listen closely you might be able to hear Santa’s sleigh bells in downtown Taylorsville. The jolly old elf is scheduled to make an appearance this Saturday during the annual Christmas on Main Street celebration to help officially kick off the holiday season in Spencer County.
    “Winter Wonderland” is this year’s theme and will include an evening of fun events along with the appearance of a special guest, Santa Claus himself.

  • Work is good medicine

    Do you remember your first paycheck? I remember mine. It was $10 and I earned it as a young teenager for cutting lawns for a realtor in Winchester. I’d gotten cash before, but there was something about a paycheck that made it feel like more of an accomplishment.
    We complain about work, but work is good for us. Not only does it help put food on our table and provide the necessities of life, it gives us purpose, confidence and self-worth. Simply put – work is a healthy thing.

  • Tis the Season for giving

    It’s fitting that Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday season. What better way to prepare our hearts for Christmas than to pause, reflect and offer up thanks for all of our own blessings. Being grateful is a prelude to being generous.
    Whether you’ve lived in Spencer County a short while or your entire life, you’ve probably come to recognize that this is a special community that cares for one another. Sure, there are exceptions, but as a community, we look out for each other, we care for each other, and we give like few other places.
