  • Resuscitate — what in the world does that big word mean? Well, I’m sure that the Spencer County EMT personnel know that a resuscitator is an apparatus used to restore respiration to a partially asphyxiated person, even to a person who may be unable to be restored. That doesn’t mean that they give up without trying.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    Are there any resources or programs that help seniors with the high cost of hearing aids?
    Can’t Afford To Hear

    Dear Can’t,

  • Oh yes, it can happen, even to the point where one or both partners begins to wonder if maybe a “new deal” would be an alternative. Well, that can be what the “ideal” marriage has finally become, often much to the surprise of both partners who started out on this blissful trip until “death do us part”.
    Usually the couple intended to have their marriage be idyllic, which Webster’s dictionary describes as “pleasing or picturesque in natural simplicity.” In other words, wonderful, enjoyable, happily in love with each other.

  • Dear Savvy Senior
    What can you tell me about ethical wills? My wife and I had to make some minor adjustments to our legal will last month, and our attorney suggested we create an ethical will as a way to explain our intentions and express our thoughts and feelings. We are interested in doing this but could use some help. What can you tell me?
    Planning Ahead

    Dear Planning,

  • Eighteen members of the Taylorsville High School Class of 1952 celebrated their 60th anniversary since graduating high school by gathering on June 9 at the Spencer Coutny-Taylorsville Chamber of Commerce building.

  • Cindy Lou Bingham of Taylorsville, and Wesley Anderson Napper of Waterford, were married June 9, 2012, in Shelbyville surrounded by family and friends.

    Bingham is the daughter of Dennis and the late Judy McWherter of Taylorsville. Napper is the son of Mike and Gail Dennison of Louisville and Rick and Trisha Napper of Hanover, Ind.
    Bingham is employed as a retail manager at Walgreens and Napper is a teacher with the Spencer County School System.

  • Emily Hume and Tyler Greenwell, both seniors in Spencer County, are the 2012 recipients of college scholarships from Farm Bureau. Hume and Greenwell each received $1,000 Spencer County Farm Bureau Scholarships.
    These awards are two of the 234 college scholarships worth a total of $302,450 that the Spencer County Farm Bureau, Kentucky Farm Bureau Education Foundation and numerous other individual county Farm Bureaus awarded this year to deserving students from across the Commonwealth.

  • Spencer County High School has announced the names of three students who have been selected to participate in Governor’s Scholars’ summer program for 2012.
    The selected students are Shelby Hall, daughter of Danan and Cheryl Hall;  Bryce Martin, son of Dwight and Carla  Martin; Joshua Spencer, son of  Ivan and Mary Spencer.
    Two students have been chosen as alternates and they are Emily Browning, daughter of William and Mary Browning, and Grace Coy, daughter of Michael and Bonnie Coy.

  • I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound. I just came home from working at Courtney Farms in Bagdad with a load of vegetables that will be presented to Community Supported Agriculture subscribers for a weekend gathering of shared experiences and shared food. We are combining our farming efforts to bring food to local families and that includes the pretty things that can be added and eaten in the mix.
