Today's Features

  • Just last week my own local paper, The Sentinel-News, had a cautionary article about deer and their movements this time of the year. It’s a dance that can cause injury to car, body, or store front in some cases. It seems there is a story at least once where a deer walks into a local business or busts into someone’s living room. I am here however to remind you that your young trees are vulnerable too, love and hormones can make for some crazy behavior and the deer rut has begun!

  • Bob Gill is the owner of Dairy Queen in Taylorsville and was the first to enforce his business as “Non Smoking”. He is truly an advocate for children. He has collaborated with the Spencer County School System in promotions of “Child Abuse Awareness” week and “Red Ribbon” week.

  • Just a few weeks ago, eight members of Plum Creek Baptist Church took off on an adventure to Thunder Bay in Ontario, Canada. The goal was to help a ministry called Eagles Cove to reach out to the Native American population in the Ontario Province.

    Eagles Cove is associated with a Canadian ministry called the Shantyman’s Christian Association or SCA. They were founded about 100 years ago to reach the native population and the men working in the rough logging and fishing camps in the Canadian north.

  • The Spencer County Homemakers hosted their 9th annual Holiday Workshop for the community on Tuesday, November 9th. Workshop participants are shown how to make simple holiday crafts and dishes.

    The cost this year was five dollars per person.

  • Tabitha Prater created this chili mac recipe to give her family some variety in the chili dishes she usually makes. She took this version to a potluck meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild in September.

    “I make it fairly often,” said Prater. “Chili is one thing I can guarantee my son will eat. When it’s cold, I fix a lot of chili and chili mac type stuff.”

  • Due to dry conditions, the majority of Kentucky livestock producers are already into their winter feeding programs which some began as early as September. Producers need to inventory their hay supplies now to ensure they have enough to last through the winter.

    If they find they’re short, buying additional hay now can save them a lot of headaches later, said Tom Keene, hay marketing specialist with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.

  • Spencer County native Carrie Wise was recently awarded one of two $1,000 mini-grants from the Kentucky Reading Association.

  • The Spencer County Public Library is hosting a food drive that is a win-win situation for those who owe late fees and for those who need food during these tough economic times.eeeeThe Food for Fines program is an effort by the library to collect nonperishable food items in exchange for fine amnesty.
