    Deborah Lewis was nominated by Spencer County High School faculty for her determination and participation in extra-curriculars such as softball, and leadership amongst her peers. She is a great student, always positive and a hard worker.

  • I could hardly sleep the night before. Long before the alarm rang to get me up for school I was already awake and dressed. It was dress-up day for the fourth grade class at Keavy Elementary School (home of the Blue Jays). All of the students had instructions to dress up as their favorite character from a story book.

  • Last week, I received news that was hard to hear. I sat in front of my spine doctor and listened as he said there was nothing he could do to help with an injury I sustained in a car accident two years ago. Since my accident in January 2014, I’ve been dealing with low-back pain, leg pain, numbness in my feet, and sporadic headaches. I’ve had to adjust my lifestyle to fit my level of pain.

  • Lenten Fish Dinners begin Feb. 12

    The Knights of Columbus–All Saints Council in Taylorsville invites you to their Lenten Fish Dinner each Friday during Lent, beginning on February 12th from 5 p.m. until 7 p.m. at All Saints Church on Main Cross in Taylorsville.

  • Even though it’s winter, it’s not too early to start thinking about summer camp or summer jobs. 4-H has a way to combine both. All 4-H camps are now hiring staff for the summer.

    Many opportunities for rewarding summer jobs have recently been posted on the University of Kentucky employment website.

    All staff members are required to be trained and certified in first aid and CPR prior to the beginning of camp staff training in May, before they can be employed by the 4-H camping program.

    A veteran Spencer County cattle farmer has earned a statewide honor for his agriculture leadership.

    Jim Naive, 85, was inducted into the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association Hall of Fame at the association’s annual convention in Owensboro, Ky.

    “It’s rather humbling to me,” Naive said in an interview this week. “I’m not sure that I’m that deserving. But when I found out about it, I was very proud to be a part of it.”

  • The three most important things you can do to protect livestock in cold weather are providing sufficient water, giving ample high-quality feed and offering weather protection. Cold stress reduces livestock productivity, including rate of gain, milk production and reproductive difficulty, and can cause disease problems.

  • It finally turned cold outside. And my dog doesn’t understand that taking her for a walk is no longer as simple as grabbing the leash and walking out the door. What makes it worse is that Molly (our dog) is part Husky, it seems the colder it gets, the more she likes it.

  • Opportunity is all around us. We seek it, seize it, lose it, and sometimes just miss opportunity. How are you handling opportunity, and when available to you, are you able to recognize it?

    Opportunity, just like everything else in the world, was, and is, created by the same One who created the world itself. God creates opportunity for us all, and in different ways. If we look to scripture, we find many examples of opportunity and how it was used to fulfill God’s perfect plan.
