  • Is it time to clean the junk drawer?

    In every home we have ever lived in, we have had a junk drawer. It is usually in the kitchen somewhere and it collects just about everything. Looking for a rubber band? It’ll probably be in the junk drawer. Looking for one of those wire tie things? Junk drawer. What happened to the scissors? They are probably hiding in the junk drawer.

  • Faith is a gift from God

    A reading from Hebrews Chapter 11, verses 1 and 6:
    Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. And without faith it is impossible to please God.
    Today I would like to spend our time together talking about faith, what it is and where it comes from. Let’s start out by defining what faith is. The simplest definition of faith is “trust in God.”
    Let me give you some examples:

  • Taylorsville police citations Aug. 13-19

    The Taylorsville Police Department issued the following citations from Aug. 13 to Aug. 19:

    Serenity H. Barmore, 21, of the 3200 block of Love Lane in Coxs Creek, was cited Aug. 13 for failure to wear seat belts, license to be in possession, no registration plates and no registration receipt.

    Mark C. Holbrook, 43, of the 500 block of Day Road, was cited Aug. 13 for no registration plates, no registration receipt and failure to produce insurance card.

  • Fire engulfs Bloomfield Road home

    An early morning fire Tuesday on Bloomfield Road left a large amount of fire and smoke damage to a Spencer County woman’s home, but ended with no injuries.

  • Chinese restaurant reopens following health dept. shutdown

    Less than two days after the North Central Health District closed Legends restaurant, the county’s only Chinese eatery was cleared to reopen Friday.

  • School board raises tax rates slightly, also approves fee to compensate for delinquent taxes

    Taxpayers will see the portion of their tax bill devoted to the Spencer County Board of Education increase this year as the board voted last Thursday to take a rate between the compensating rate and a rate that would allow for a 4 percent increase.

    The real and personal property tax rates were set at 61.2 cents per $100 of assessed value. However, the board also approved a .3 cents per $100 of assessed value exoneration fee to make up for delinquent taxes in prior years. This brings the total rate up to 61.5 cents per $100 of assessed value.

  • State police cuts felt locally

    Spencer County could have fewer Kentucky State Troopers patrolling the area after recent statewide spending cuts affected Post 12, which covers Spencer and six other counties.
    Post 12 was one of eight KSP posts told last week that 20 trooper positions were eliminated after a projected $5.8 million shortfall in the fiscal year 2014 budget was identified. Three of the trooper positions were from post 12, which covers Spencer, Anderson, Fayette, Franklin, Scott, Shelby and Woodford counties.
