    Tens of thousands of prayer events are planned across the country on Thursday May 7, 2015, to honor the annual National Day of Prayer. In churches, parks and on courthouse steps, citizens will be praying for our nation, government leaders, media, military, schools, churches, businesses and families.

  • Everybody’s done it from time to time, you drop that plate or glass and suddenly you hear that awful crash. What was once whole, useful and maybe even pretty, now lies broken and shattered on the ground. What a mess!

    We bought this beautiful handmade vase once, and before we even got it home it was in two or three pieces. I did my best to glue the pieces in place, but you can tell.

    Over the next couple of weeks, seniors will be publishing these articles in The Spencer Magnet. Presented as written.

  • I waited. I hope you did, too! My tomatoes and peppers are finally ready to be planted now that the forecast calls for warm spring nights.

    Tomatoes love two things: good drainage and heat. If you have struggled with tomatoes in the past consider what makes them most content when preparing the garden and setting your plants out.

    First thing first: always wait until our frost-free date — on average this is May 10, give or take a week depending on where you are located.

  • With the discovery of a few wild birds in Western Kentucky testing positive for avian influenza, also known as bird flu, many questions exist about the disease.

    Avian influenza is actually a group of viruses that can infect domestic and wild birds. The viruses can be classified by their ability to cause illness and death. The strain of concern right now is H5N2, a highly contagious strain that can cause high death loss and rapidly spread from flock to flock.

  • It’s official. The National Wild Turkey Federation has confirmed that the massive wild turkey bagged by David Cody Guess is in the books as being the world record at 37.6 lbs. He killed the giant bird April 21 on his family’s farm in Lyon County.

    Guess says he has been tagging along on hunts since he was three years old and started hunting at age five. The biggest kill prior to this record was in Kansas with a weight of 27 pounds.
