  • Spencer County Schools are proud to announce the winners of the annual district Young Authors contest. 

    The contest was available to both elementary schools and the middle school.

  • Mulching offers many benefits for landscaping in your yard and gardens.  Some of these include retained moisture, weed control, improved drainage, lower soil temperature, erosion prevention and protection from mowers and trimmers. As they decompose, mulches also release minerals into the soil and leave behind humus which is good for plants.

  • Judy Broyles got her recipe for caramel icing from a friend many years ago. She has seen variations of it in cookbooks. Either dark or light brown sugar can be used to get slightly different flavors.

    Broyles has been making this icing since her children were young. Caramel and chocolate is her favorite combination. She also uses the icing on yellow cake, spice cake, and white cake. It can be used on nearly any cake mix or scratch cake recipe.
