    Several students gathered in front of Spencer County High School last Wednesday for the annual See You at the Pole prayer rally that’s held nationally on school campuses.

  • Camp Meeting at Old Country Church

    Old Country Church will be holding Camp Meeting 2016 at the church from October 16-21. The morning service on Sunday will begin at 10:30 a.m. with breakfast served from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m. There will be a lunch after the Sunday morning service.

  • Little things make a big difference.  We recently got a hummingbird feeder and my mom is thrilled when those little birds fly in. Just a little hummingbird and yet it brings a lot of joy.   

    In the same way, a simple word of kindness to someone who is having a bad day can be a gift beyond measure.  Sometimes a simple card can encourage and uplift the spirit.  Little things, but somehow they matter to us.

  • Fall harvest season is a busy time for Kentucky farmers and their families. It also is a peak season for agricultural injuries and an especially important time for farm families to pay attention to safety.

    Take time to talk to workers about safety. You need to be sure all workers are trained and physically capable of operating equipment and that they understand the safety procedures.

  • Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky.     

  • Bluegrass Gospel Show at Calvary Christian

    Calvary Christian Church is hosting a Bluegrass Gospel show featuring the Po’ Rambling Boys on Sunday, Oct. 2nd at 6 p.m. Calvary Christian Church is located in Mt. Washington at 11829 Hwy. 44 (across from Bullitt East High School). There is no admission charge and everyone is invited.

  • Do you notice the people in the other cars as you drive down the road? I mean sure, we watch for turn signals and to get hints of how that person is driving, but do you ever actually see that person?

    Sometimes on a highway you get a few seconds to really observe someone.  I’ve seen ladies putting on make-up, and I even remember one guy who was driving and reading the newspaper. Talk about distracted driving, and that was way before cell phones.
