  • Submitted to The Spencer Magnet

    Magnet on the move – Brad and Beth Hardy, of Taylorsville, took a trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico in August and took The Spencer Magnet along on their journey.  Beth Hardy said everyday was an adventure from diving in the ocean to zip lining through the jungle. They even caught an 8-foot, 120 lb.  sailfish. We’d love to see your Magnet on the move. Send to editor@spencermagnet.com.

     

  • Fall is the perfect time for farmers and homeowners to check their soils to determine acidity. A simple pH test can help determine if the soil needs a lime application to counteract acidity.

  • Sir George the gourd dragon has valiantly earned his ivory-haired creator the title of best artisan in the land – or, at the very least, Best in Show at the 2009 All About Gourds exhibit in Maysville.

    “I was hoping that maybe he would win best fantasy character,” said Lois Platt, of Taylorsville. But after discovering that she won the top prize, “You could have knocked me over with a feather.”
