    Winter weather is here and many people are not as fortunate as others. They need basic items such as coats, hats, gloves, socks, scarves, blankets and sleeping bags.
    If you can find any of these items, used and clean, Judy Bentley will again collect and deliver these to various organizations who will distribute them to those in need. Contact Judy Bentley at 477-8249.

    Celebrate Recovery at two churches

  •  

    Elementary students from Spencer County Elementary School and Taylorsville Elementary School who achieved Distinguished scores on recent testing, were recognized recently during a Spencer County High School basketball game. Superintendent Chuck Adams invited the students and their parents to the schools to be recognized, and the students were brought out onto the floor between games in front of a packed house.

  • Spencer County Elementary School announced their 2nd semester honor roll recently.

  •  

    Spencer County High School Choir participants are making a change for the better. The first year Ms. Kelsie Shipley, SCHS Choir Director, sent kids to audition in 2013 for the KMEA All-State  Choir, no students from SCHS made it.  Competing against students all around the state for these spots is not an easy task.  

    Last school year, 2014-2015, Ms. Shipley had three students make it; Shelby Hughes, Halee Hood, and Patrick Sweazy.  This year, 2015-2016, Ms. Shipley had six students make the KMEA All-State Choir. 

  • What better way to deal with the winter weather than to enjoy a hearty bowl of soup?

    One of my favorite soup options is a simple Great Northern bean soup. It makes a delicious meal all by itself and is especially good when served with fresh hot corncakes.

    KET television star Tim Farmer became the latest victim of the Lawrenceburger Challenge on Sunday afternoon, as he and two other men tried in vain to consume the giant burger, slaw and fries offered at Lane’s Diner in Lawrenceburg.

    Farmer was in town to film an episode for his popular series, “Tim Farmer’s Country Kitchen,” and took the challenge in front of a boisterous crowd.

  •  

    The following prayer was found folded up in the pocket of a Confederate soldier at the end of the Civil War:

    “I asked God for strength, that I might achieve; I was made weak, that I might learn to obey.

    “I asked for health, that I might do greater things; I was given infirmity, that I might do better things.

    “I asked for riches, that I might be happy; I was given poverty, that I might be wise.

  • It seems the fall season lasted just into January 2016. The ferns that hang from lamp posts in Old Louisville finally got zapped by a freeze just after the New Year. Winter jasmine is in bloom, among other late winter bloomers, and a few spring flowering trees have broken bud. Our current cooldown is welcome just to slow things down a bit.

  • Every time you bring a load of firewood inside this winter, you may be opening the door for wood-infesting insects to make your home their home. Most insects brought into the home on firewood are harmless, but you can greatly reduce their numbers by following a few simple steps.
