  • One of the most anticipated rites of spring is dusting off the tiller and heading out to the vegetable garden for a little soil play. It is one of those things you can’t plan for, though. It becomes a waiting game because we can’t do it if the soil is too wet; we don’t want to do it if it is too cold; and we only have the time to do it when the weekend rolls around.

  • Springtime, with its warmer temperatures and more abundant rainfall, is typically when many winged termites emerge inside homes and other structures. Termites swarm from the colony to disburse, fall to the ground, find mates and start new colonies in the soil.
    From now through May, you might see swarms of winged termites, called swarmers, inside your home, signaling an infestation that can cause extensive and costly damage. Since swarmers are attracted to light, you often see them, or their shed wings, around windows, doors and light fixtures.

  • Congratulations goes to the Spencer County High School’s band members who competed in Solos and Ensembles held at East Oldham Middle School.

  • Spencer County High School students got to see what it’s like to drive while impaired by alcohol or other drugs during a demonstration on April 6. Students also gave walking a straight line in the demonstration goggles a try.

  • These students were selected from 900 students who auditioned for the Western Kentucky University Honors Band. They were under the direction of Richard Murphy, director of band, Columbia Central High School of Tennessee and Dr. Linda Moorehouse, professor of music, University of Illinois. The students who were selected are pictured above from left to right: Sarah Bowman, Bryce Martin, John Mathre, Joseph Snider, Susan Mann, Daniel Montgomery and Todd Clemens.   
     

  • Kentucky Adult Education, a unit of the Council on Postsecondary Education, issued a consumer alert Monday regarding fraudulent websites claiming to offer high school and GED diplomas for a fee through the Internet.
    “Kentuckians need to know there is one way to earn a GED credential and that is through a test administered onsite at an Official GED Testing Center,” Reecie Stagnolia, vice president for Kentucky Adult Education, said in a press release from the state.

  • Plum Creek Baptist Church will host a soup supper and gospel sing Friday at 5 p.m. The event will feature the Polston Family Gospel Singers, pictured. ‘Please join us for an evening of good food, fellowship and gospel music,’ organizers said. For more information, contact the church at 502-477-2582. The church is located at the corner of Highway 44 and Plum Creek Road in Waterford.

  • After I was ordained and started preaching I thought that God would bless our church so much that we would have a big congregation.
    But you know, God had another idea. He did not think we were ready for a big congregation.
    The best thing about God is if you will listen to him, he always knows what is best.
    When we dedicated our church to God, we told him with a humble heart that we wanted him to be the leader of our church and we would follow him.
    The amazing thing is that Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to dwell in our church.
