  • Spencer County High School FFA’s national winning FFA Dairy Judging Team was recognized last week at the Governor’s Mansion by Lt. Gov. Jerry Abramson. The team will represent the National FFA in the Scotish Highland International Contest in June in Edinburgh, Scotland. The team is presently selling raffle tickets for a new 2012 Dodge Truck to help finance the trip. The drawing is May 15. To purchase tickets, go by the local schools during normal hours.

  • Residents who will soon be renewing license plates for their farm trucks will notice a $10 voluntary donation on the renewal, according to a news release from Spencer County Clerk Lynn Hesselbrock’s office.
    The $10 donation will be split among the Kentucky FFA Foundation, the Kentucky 4-H Foundation and the Kentucky Department of Agriculture’s “Kentucky Proud Program.”
    “All are very worthy organizations which work to keep the Kentucky agricultural community and business strong,” the news release said.

  • I am plotting and planning and placing order for onion sets and seed potatoes and summer crops that will be directly seeded in the garden once the temperatures really warm . . . I can barely stand the wait. I have two trays of seedlings that I started about two weeks ago and have begun another round of kale, broccoli and Brussels sprouts in three more trays.

  • Over the last few weeks I have been interacting with insurance agencies, banks, doctors and assorted other organizations on behalf of my mother.  The headaches and mindless policies can drive you crazy!  And then there are those who forget that each policy number or account number represents a living breathing person! By the way, all of this stuff happened in a state that will remain nameless, although orange and volunteer may give you a hint!

  • Rainbow styled cakes are a fun current trend in cake decorating. The rainbow can either be colors in the cake layers or batter, or some kind of rainbow in the frosting. I saw a rainbow cake for the first time about two years ago. A college classmate posted a photo on Facebook of a cake she and her son made with plain white frosting and colored layers. It looked so amazing! A few months later, Family Fun magazine featured a cupcake that had a rainbow layered into the batter.

  • The name “Hitler” can strike fear, painful memories, even hatred especially with those of us who lived during that period when this man was doing all of the well-known, documented horrible deeds to humanity, especially the Jews, during his reign of terror masterminding at least 6,000,000 of them.

    The Spencer County 4-H Council guides the 4-H program. These men and women hold a regular meeting every month to make plans and organize committees to carry out various events and activities of 4-H youth.

  • In 1 Kings 3:9 we see King Solomon asking God to give him an understanding heart to judge the people between good and bad. Did God answer that prayer? Look at 1 Kings 4:29-30: “And God gave Solomon wisdom and understanding exceeding much and largeness of heart, even as the sand that is on the sea shore. And Solomon’s wisdom excelled the wisdom of all the children of the east country and all the wisdom of Egypt.”

    The Spencer County High School boys’ varsity basketball team beat the Lebanon Junction Bulldogs by a score of 64-59.
    The Bears hustled, and teamwork was exceptionally good. They had three men in double figures: Larry Hickman with 20, Bobby Coots with 15 and Charlie Stout with 10.
