  • As we look at ‘sin’ it sounds like a little word. Even though it is a three letter word. 1 think it is the biggest word in the English language. The dictionary says the meaning is, ‘a breaking of the law of God’s purpose’.

    “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” Romans 3:23.

    As we look at all these disastrous times in our country, instead of trying to fix them we should come back to God and let him fix them because I am sure he would do a much better job.

  • Spencer County went to 4-H camp July 5-9.  Pictured you will see all of the campers, teens, camp staff, and most of the adults that attended Lake Cumberland 4-H Camp with Spencer County.   We had a total of 84 campers, 9 teens,9 adults, along with Mollie Tichenor (CEA for 4-H Youth Development) from Spencer County to attend.  A great week was had by all.  Spencer County will be going to camp in 2011, so if you are interested please contact the Extension Office for additional information next spring.

  • When summer weather heats up with no sign of rain, gardeners hook up the water hose to give their thirsty landscapes a drink.  It seems like a simple enough task, but there are some tips to help you get the most from your efforts. 

  • We live in a culture of diversity. It has been said that America is a melting pot of culture and religion. In any direction you turn you are likely to find diverse ethnicities and ways of living. The differences between people are more obvious in America today than ever before in times past. While this becomes more obvious in larger cities such and Louisville and Lexington, places that are set up to host multiple ethno-linguistic groups, the smaller and more rural areas are beginning to blend in many of the same ways.

  • When Mike and Jill Reed bought the historic Hough residence and property at Green’s Lane and KY 55 at Wakefield, they got more than they bargained for. The Reeds became owners of the last resting places of 18 Civil War soldiers.

    The identities of the 18 are not known, but Hough family tradition indicates they were Confederates who lost their lives in a shootout with federal forces. Here’s a very interesting letter sent to me Aug. 22, 1987 by Spencer County native Charles R. Hough, who at that time lived in Seattle, Washington.

  • A host family is being sought to provide a home to a foreign exchange student from Switzerland. The 18-year-old male student will be arriving in July 31 in time to attend school at Spencer County High School. The student enjoys playing piano, soccer and is interested in learning American football. He will remain in the United States until June 2011.

    If you are interested in providing a home and all the necessary transportation that a typical active teenager requires, then please call International Exchange Coordinator Sally Crespo at 477-1972.

  • It may not have been the hottest day of the year but it was close.  With the temperature in the 90s and humidity levels up to 75 percent before it even thought about raining, patrons of the Spencer County Library flooded the tailwaters June 15 for part of the Summer Reading Program.  

  • 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. 

    Many students participated and wrote a short story from rough draft to publication. Representative books were sent for the school judging from participating classrooms.  These books were then scored by students in the fourth and fifth grades based on the criteria of the contest. 

    The following winners were awarded certificates in May:
