Today's Features

  • Are you getting ready for this weekend?  Stocking up on hamburgers and hotdogs?  Getting the car ready for a little trip?  Maybe even planning some home improvement project?  This year with the mild winter it feels like spring has lasted forever, but Memorial Day weekend is the traditional start of summer, and I think we all look forward to it.

  • When students come in Dan Barnett’s Global Studies class next year, they will come face-to-face with Alexander the Great, Napoleon, Joan of Arc and over 30 other great figures from history. Why? Because Barnett’s ninth-grade class created life-sized creations of some of histories most famous (and notorious) people.

  • Spencer County Elementary School students portray figures from American ‘tall tales’ including Johnny Appleseed, John Henry and, of course, Paul Bunyan and Babe, the blue ox.

  • 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.
