    The following AA meetings are offered locally:

  • Remember when you were a kid going to the doctor and he said, “This might sting a little.”  You know no matter what, that needle was going to hurt.  Right shoulder, left shoulder, or some other spot, that big, shiny needle was going to sting a Lot!  Nowadays, I can get a shot without flinching,. Most people can, but I don’t know anyone that enjoys it.  It is just one of those things we have to endure for our health.

    The congregation at Grace Chapel Church of God of Prophecy recently held a Pastor’s Appreciation event in honor of Rev. Dave and Diana Hutch. The congregation cited the couple’s skill in music, counseling and compassion, and for encouraging children, youth and ministries of all ages at the church.

    A chili supper fundraiser was held Saturday for Love My Neighbor’s new facility on Garrard Street. The ministry has been closed for nearly a year as construction continues, and organizers said there’s a possibility it may be open for business by Christmas. They said they are most grateful for the volunteers and donations that have allowed the ministry to be debt-free with this new construction, which gives them significantly more room than their previous location. At least seven local churches have been actively involved in the ministry.

    On October 13th SCES celebrated their students during Toss It Thursday.  After participating in various activities, many students were recognized for scoring Proficient or Distinguished on KPREP.

  • Thousands of bats lie, heaped high on cave floors, sometimes as many as 10,000 at one site. Fragile, winged mammals that have succumbed to the ravages of white nose syndrome and dropped, flightless, from their roosts on cave ceilings. Biologists report coming upon this tragic scene and finding, among the piles of tiny corpses, living bats, struggling to survive hibernation by burrowing among the bodies of their colony for residual warmth.

  • There are certain trees that consistently remain my favorites.  When I think about their common characteristics, one thing stands out: the bark.  Interesting bark is always there, whether the tree is leafing out, blooming, or showing dramatic fall color.  Bark remains constant whether the tree is good, bad, pretty or ugly.

    Spencer County Middle School students got a break from the books on Friday as they celebrated the school’s recent test scores that once again earned them a “Distinguished” designation. The students gathered in the gym for a celebration, followed by a concert and a dance that made for a much more relaxed afternoon. They call the event Grizzly Fest and it recognizes the classroom achievements. One teacher described it as an Academic Pep Rally.
