  • I was visiting a person the other day and he asked me, “When you were preaching did you ever look out over the crowd and wonder how many in the congregation had ever told anyone about Jesus Christ?”

  • Dear Savvy Senior,

    Can you write a column educating patients on how to prepare for doctors’ appointments? I manage a number of small health clinics, and have found that patients – especially seniors – that come prepared when they visit our doctors are much more satisfied with the care they receive. Thanks for your help.

    Dear Educator,

  • Three Spencer County 4-H members got to experience being in a Fashion Revue thanks to Shelby County 4-H!  On Thursday, April 26th Rebecca Panepinto, Bailey Cranmer, Kelly Baird, Karlie Acker, and Jenna Thompson represented Spencer County very well and modeled the clothes that they had made in 4-H sewing.  Thank you to Pat Douglas, Shirley Thomas, Virginia Smith, and Vicky Rego for all of their help guiding these young sewers in the completion of their projects.  We could not have had this opportunity for our youth without you all! 

  • The 2012 Louisville Area Communications Day was held on Saturday, April 28th at the Shelby County Extension Office.  I am so proud to say that everyone from Spencer County did an outstanding job.

  • One day when I was very young my parents promised me a day out. I don’t remember if we had planned a picnic or a trip to the zoo, I just remember that it rained cats and dogs. And I also remember how heartbroken I was. It wasn’t fair to my parents, they couldn’t help the rain, but I was so disappointed.

  • Matthew 6:19-21 says, Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupt, and where thieves do not break through and steal. For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.

  • Magic descends on Taylorsville this week as the Spencer County middle and high school drama students perform their production of “The Hobbit.”

    The show opens on Thursday, May 10 at 7pm in the middle school theater. The cost is $2 for students and $4 for adults. Other performances are on May 11 and 12 at 7pm and Sunday, May 13 at 2pm.

    Auditions for the play were in February. Twenty-eight actors and twenty-three crew members have worked hard to get the play ready. Approximately 70% of the students involved are from the middle school.

    Do you know both your telephone numbers? You do have two — a local number and a long distance number, according to Art Willett, local Southern Bell manager.
    “Your long distance number is your regular number prefixed by the area code (502),” Willett said.
    Area codes became necessary when the Telephone Company instituted direct distance dialing, he explained.
    With the area code prefix, no two telephone numbers in the country are identical.
