  • The EF Foundation recently recognized Spencer County High School for all of its efforts in working with Katharina and Thibault (T-bo) as exchange students this past school year.  In the picture with three people are Linda Goldy, school counselor, Robyn Baxter, vice principal and Katharina Meissneitzer, an exchange student from Austria.

    The meals are provided through the United States Department of Agriculture. For more information or to file a discrimination complaint, call 866-632-9992.

  • These days it is out of fashion to encourage men to be strong and courageous, but with Father’s Day coming up I think it is time.  When television shows tend to portray men as sex-starved incompetent children and our elected representatives can’t tell the difference between right and wrong, we have a problem.  Lately, our heroes play basketball or football and we ignore their character if they can score a few points.  We are being taught that strength is just some macho bravado and that courage is out of date.

  • As we look at the three letter word ‘sin,’ many people think they have sinned or been so bad in life, there is no way God is going to save them. They are so blinded by the devil and lived for him so long they fail to realize how much God loves them.
    First of all, they need to read:
    “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Romans 3:23).
    “For there is no respect of persons with God” (Romans 2:11).

  • The Beard family and related lines have been around Spencer and Nelson counties for a mighty long time. In The Terre Haute (Indiana) Morning Star, Oct. 17, 1904, there appeared a tribute to John L. Beard, 80, and his wife Judith Frances Wells, 75, who had been married for 56 years.
    In a copy of the newspaper appears a picture of the couple, but because of the age of the paper, the photograph is not very sharp. The couple lived in Vigo County, Ind.

  • Curt Barnett first heard mention of worm composting in the movie “Dumb and Dumber.” After noticing a couple other references, Barnett’s interest was piqued.

  • The Taylorsville Elementary Students of the Month were Jenna Pegram, Dakota Nation, Wyatt Nation, Mackenzie Bell, Zachary Greyling and Chelsea Stevens.

  • Elk Creek resident Mandy Smith was recently selected for the 2011 Kentucky Governor’s Scholar Program. Smith is a junior at Whitefield Academy in Louisville and has a weighted GPA of 4.5. She is ranked first in her class. Smith plays high school golf and participates in the Musselman-Dunne Summer Golf Tour. She qualified as an individual in the 2010 girls state golf tournament. She plays both piano and organ for Riverview Baptist Church and works in the children’s ministry on Sunday and Wednesday nights. She is the daughter of Mary Ann and Ronnie Smith.
