  • COLUMN: A new season and a new list

    High school football pulls back the curtain this week on another academic year. The usual fixtures are in place – Louisville Trinity and Fort Thomas Highlands.
    For the rest of the year, these are a few things I would like to see come to pass:
    1. My favorite for Kentucky sports person of the year has been established: Emma Talley. A 19-year-old from Princeton in Caldwell County and a sophomore at Alabama, Talley won the U.S. Women’s Amateur Golf Championship. Two Kentuckians won major tournaments this year, Talley and Kenny Perry of Franklin.

    Taylorsville Mayor Don Pay addressed those in attendance at the Chamber of Commerce luncheon on Aug. 8 for the annual State of the City address. Pay told the audience he likes to address the state of the city from a “where we’ve been, where are we now and a where are we going” approach.

    Mark Bruner, who is charged with the brutal beating in 2011 of a woman left by the side of the road, received a new hearing date recently in Shelby Circuit Court.
    Bruner, of Taylorsville, will return to court on Sept. 9, and his jury trial on charges of first-degree assault is scheduled for Sept. 30. His trial, previously set for March, had been postponed because some needed paperwork was not in place, but that situation has been corrected.
