  • Within the past two weeks, you might have received a small packet on your front door. I’m not talking about a delivery from the post office or a brochure to inform registered voters, but more importantly an invitation from your local church to make a decision that will forever change your life. Thousands of Southern Baptist churches have cooperatively organized a way to distribute what they believe is the most important message ever told to every household in North America. This ministry is called Find it Here.

  • Taylorsville Elementary School’s academic team competed in the Kentucky Governor’s Cup district competition  February, 27 at Old Mill Elementary School in Bullitt County.

  • Spencer County home gardeners will soon be busy with the rush of spring planting activities. Early spring is also when primary infections occur in many fruits crops.  So, late winter is the ideal time for home fruit growers to get a jump on disease management.  

  • A reader has asked the question in response to my last article about Tiger Woods, “If Tiger Woods is a Buddhist, then why does he have to ask God to forgive him?” It’s a good question; a curious one too. After all there are large differences between the two religions. Buddhism sees God mostly as an illusion while Christianity teaches that God is the creator of the universe and present in our everyday lives.
