  • The first piece of good news is that this year turned out better than last.

    In 2010, I wrote, “Sadly this year was sort of a bust for the vast majority of what I planted.” I can’t do that year after year, so thank goodness the tomatoes and zucchini kept pace this time around.

  • Five students from Spencer County were named as participants in the Governor’s Scholar Program for 2011 in last week’s edition of the Spencer Magnet.

  • Seven students from Spencer County have been named Sen. Jeff Green Scholars. Students earn this designation by achieving a 4.0 grade point average all four years of high school and scoring at least a 28 composite on the ACT.

    These students have also earned $2,500 a year in Kentucky Educational Excellence Scholarship awards.

    Their awards may be renewed each year of college if they continue high scholastic achievement, making the total value of their KEES worth $10,000.

    Campbellsville University recently served as host to students from Spencer County participating in an early college program.
    The program was for students who just completed eighth grade and are going into high school this fall, according to Dr. DeWayne Frazier, associate vice president for academic affairs.

  • The Covenant Churches of Taylorsville – All Saints Roman Catholic Church, First Christian Church of Taylorsville (Disciples of Christ) and Taylorsville United Methodist Church – are planning an anniversary celebration, marking 25 years since they entered into a covenant with one another.

    The celebration will be Sunday at 5 p.m. at First Christian Church, which is located at 403 Main Cross St. A meal will follow the service in the church’s fellowship hall.

  • People come to me and ask me: “Why don’t the leaders promote the county like you did?” I really don’t know why; but, one thing I do know is that our fiscal court and I had a lot of faith in Jesus Christ.

    Many times we would bring up things that needed to be done and before we jumped into trying to do them we would go home and pray about them. By doing this, we would find out Jesus knew a lot more about doing the things we were trying to do than we did.

  •  The other day I was sitting in the barber’s chair and I realized two things.  First, there is not nearly as much hair falling on the floor around me as there used to be.  Second, the hair that is falling has changed color!  I would still call my hair color brown overall, but grey had crept in more than I like to admit.
