• LETTER: Resident claims good ole’ boy system still exists

    Although many crooked political figures in Spencer County have gone by the wayside, the good ol’ boy system of theft, lies, and circumventing the rule of law has not.

    What should have been a routine application for a construction permit has turned into a confiscation of taxpayer property. Charles Michael and Constance Ann Driscoll received an illegal permit. They failed to follow zoning regulations, building not only on their 15 ft. set back, but on the right of way of Reasor Avenue. How could this happen?

  • 'Food for Fines' a success

    The Spencer County Public Library “Food for Fines” program concluded on January 31. Boxes of non-perishable food items were donated to Dare to Care, the Family Resource Center, and the Judge-Executive’s Christmas Basket drive.  Thanks to all of our great patrons who made this program a success.

  • LETTER: Blessed by good neighbors

    We recently moved from Louisville to our new home at the corner of Akins Rd. and Mt. Washington Road. As soon as we moved in, I found a bag on the door containing bread, fruit etc. welcoming us to the neighborhood.

    Nobody drives down Akins without waving. For Christmas, we received a nice plate of Christmas treats. Recently, our little chihuahua dog came up missing.
    Neighbors who had never even met us made phone calls, got out and searched with flashlights and one drove around in her car.

  • KSP Captain responds to reader complaint

    I am writing in reference to a letter to the editor which appeared in your newspaper on January 5, 2011, titled “Reader upset lack of law enforcement” written by Allison Greer Hughes.

    Upon reading this letter I obtained a copy of the audio recording of her sister’s telephone call reporting the crash with a deer. The first call was received at 6:03 a.m. and after obtaining the necessary information, our telecommunicator identified this location as in the city limits of Taylorsville.
