  • LETTER: Two perspectives on the presidential election

    I’m 46 years old and I have never been more disheartened or discouraged by an election than I was last week. Just typing that produces a bit of guilt however, as I’m reminded that as Christians, our hope is in Christ and we can’t let the affairs of this world distract us to the point of depression. So I’m struggling.

  • LETTER: Regardless of who won, pray for our leaders

    As I am writing this letter on Election Day, I do not know the outcome of any of the elections that are taking place across this great land. However, there is one thing that I am absolutely sure of. The political climate and tone in our country has to change if we as a people have any hope of solving the serious problems that face us, not only across the United States but also here in Spencer County.

  • EDITORIAL: Stop playing politics when safety is at risk

    Perhaps the most level-headed person in the discussion between the city and the county regarding our emergency responders’ radio system actually isn’t an employee or elected official of either the city or the county.
    During a special meeting of the Taylorsville City Commission, Sgt. Scott Herndon, with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife — who is very much a Spencer Countian — reminded us all of why we even care about this radio business in the first place.

  • COLUMN: Bears provided a season to remember

    Probably nobody who walked through the gates of Friday night’s playoff game between Spencer County and Nelson County expected a 56-14 blowout win by the visitors. I know I didn’t, the fans didn’t and I’m quite certain the players in blue didn’t.

  • LETTER: Kent Stevens for state representative

    Kent Stevens at the young age of 11 years old started working to help his family. He is a hard working man and understands what hard work is all about.
    He served as a school teacher and principal. His wife and two daughters also are school teachers.
    Our future is education and Kent Stevens believes all people deserve an education.
    He also is a man that cares abotu the people — the elderly, the working people, everyday people like himself.

  • LETTER: Kent Stevens cares

    Kent Stevens knows what hard work is about. He was my principal in school, and even though I was just a kid, I knew he was the kind of man I wanted to be like.
    His door was always open to any student.
    I feel Kent Stevens was a huge role model in my life, and I want to thank him for that.
    Vote for someone that cares. Vote for Kent Stevens.

  • EDITORIAL: Thanks for making forum a success

    Last Thursday’s city commission candidate forum went off without a hitch, and we couldn’t be more thankful.
    Our staff, along with the Chamber of Commerce board of directors, put a lot of time and effort into coordinating Thursday’s forum, but we couldn’t have made it happen without you — the citizens and the candidates who attended.
    Thursday was a model night of how, in an ideal world, elected officials would cooperate, collaborate and, let’s just say it, get along.

  • LETTER: Spencer County Habitat for Humanity thanks you

    In October, Habitat held two separate yard sale fundraiser events and we would like to thank the community for all their donations, the volunteer support during the event and all the wonderful shoppers who stopped by to purchase items.
    We would also like to thank the owner of the Polymerica building for his willingness and flexibility in allowing us to hold the yard sales in that facility.
