    For years, the Victory Road quartet has been a staple at church services, revival meetings, picnics and other events in Spencer County. Their live music has stirred hearts and provided entertainment in virtually every corner of the county and beyond, winning them legions of fans in the area.

    Soon, those fans will be able to take the music home with them as Victory Road will release their first CD later this month.

  • The deadline isn’t far off; have you finished filing your taxes? Some file early expecting a big return, some file later to avoid paying. Some of us just hate doing it at all so we just drag it out .

    A few people can’t wait to get their returns, but I never met anyone who says, “I can’t wait to do my taxes.” Collecting the paperwork, checking all the right boxes, getting everything just right can be such a pain.

    A group of Spencer County students participated in the 4-H Teen Summit at the Kentucky Leadership Center March 17 -19.

  • Sycamore Hill Farm of Taylorsville is a new member of the American Angus Association, reports Allen Moczygemba, CEO of the national breed organization headquartered in Saint Joseph, Missouri.

    The American Angus Association, with more than 25,000 active adult and junior members, is the largest beef breed association in the world. Its computerized records include detailed information on over 18 million registered Angus.

  • How much fertilizer do you really need to use on your lawn and garden? If you’re just making a guess, you could be using too much. But how can you know for sure? A simple and inexpensive soil test can tell you all you need to know to make your lawn and garden look great and to protect the environment from runoff of excess nutrients.

  • The magnolia family is diverse and April is the month that some of them begin to show their blooms in a most dramatic way. Among the native evergreen species are the southern magnolia (M. grandiflora) and the sweet bay magnolia (M. virginiana). The sweet bay magnolia has undoubtedly been over-used; I have seen them planted smack-dab against people’s homes on countless occasions. The southern magnolia, on the other hand, has a reputation for being marginally hardy here, so it may suffer from under planting. Selecting the right variety can solve the problem.

  • When I was a teenager, I went on a canoeing trip with a church youth group. For some reason the youth leader trusted my friend James and me to be the first ones down the river. He must have thought we were pretty responsible because he placed his young son in the canoe with us.

    I don’t know if we were responsible or not, but we sure weren’t experienced.

  • As an amateur wordsmith, I am fascinated with words and phrases. I love my cell phone because I have a dictionary and thesaurus all ready for my personal touch and I can research any word or phrase I hear.

    You can tell a lot about a person by the words and phrases they use. Of course, most use words and phrases they have no idea what they mean. Perhaps they heard somebody else say these words or phrases and so they incorporated them into their vocabulary, which, says more about them than anything else.
