    The Spencer County Board of Education recognized five teachers from the district as Teachers of the Year for their respective schools.

  • Unusually warm temperatures have both backyard gardeners and farmers looking at crops early this year.

  • Now is the time for young people and their parents to begin making plans for an annual summer ritual, 4-H Camp.

    KY 4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth between the ages of 9 and 13. At 4-H Camp, young people learn independence and responsibility while having a lot of fun and making new friends.

  • I was catching up on some magazine reading the other day and on two occasions I read the phrase “choose thin spears” and I got so frustrated.  These spring articles were about asparagus, and I would like to go on the record that when it comes to homegrown asparagus (and even the wild growing in the fence rows), fat is good.  The fat spears have always been tender from the garden, so don’t let anyone fool you on the fresh from the garden variety. They are particularly well-suited for the charcoal grill.

  • My wife, Lynn, and I were looking forward to accompanying Congressman Guthrie on his visit with the 5th grade class at Spencer County Elementary School last Thursday. Congressman Guthrie would be speaking with the class about the origins of our government, the separation of powers and then a question and answer session. But first, two pupils conducted a tour of the school for the Congressman and they did a first class job.

    A festive get-together for Easter

    Have you invited family or friends for brunch or dinner over the Easter weekend? This is the perfect opportunity to concoct some wonderful dishes, enjoy yourself and impress your guests. You can make sure the event is a roaring success by following these three suggestions.

    Invite spring into your home

  • Easter is coming in just a few days; bunnies and eggs and Easter baskets everywhere, Easter egg hunts and new clothes and even a few family gatherings.  Those things are great, but aren’t really what Easter is about.

  • Community Easter Services

    The Spencer County Ministerial Association would like to invite you to the annual Community Easter Services.

    Good Friday Service will be held at noon on April 14 at First Baptist Church of Taylorsville. Brother Chad Goodlett of Taylorsville Community Church will bring the message.
