It was a night of worship, testimony and speaking that&rsquo;s a national event, as schools across the country took part. This was the fourth year Spencer County has participated.<br /> &nbsp;</p> <p> <br /> &nbsp;</p> Fall colors are always there http://www.spencermagnet.com/content/fall-colors-are-always-there <p> Fall color has been slowly bleeding into the tapestry of our landscape due to our little stretch of dry weather. It is a natural reaction for a plant to show signs of fall color early when it is under stress. In fact, we have some crabapples that are blooming because they have completely defoliated.&nbsp; No leaves mean the sun&rsquo;s warmth coaxes bud break and bloom at the wrong time of the year.<br /> <br /> 4-H Achievement Banquet http://www.spencermagnet.com/content/4-h-achievement-banquet <img src="http://www.spencermagnet.com/sites/www.spencermagnet.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/spencer_county_group_picture_from_banquet.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> &nbsp;</p> <p> The 2016-2017 Spencer County 4-H Achievement Banquet was held on Sunday, September 24th at the Spencer County Extension Office.&nbsp; Congratulations to all 4-H members that were recognized for their accomplishments.&nbsp; The 2017 Outstanding Teen was Courtney Jeffiers.&nbsp; The Outstanding Volunteer for 2017 was Jennifer Mayer.&nbsp; Chef Joshua Moore was the 2017 Friend of Spencer County 4-H.&nbsp;</p> TES students of the month http://www.spencermagnet.com/content/tes-students-month-0 <img src="http://www.spencermagnet.com/sites/www.spencermagnet.com/files/imagecache/thumb85/tes_students_of_month.jpg" alt="" title="" align="left" hspace="6" /><p> &nbsp;</p> <p> The Taylorsville Elementary School students of the month for September are Clayton Jones, Elleigh Zabenco, J.J.
