Today's Features

  • Spencer County Middle and High Schools present Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’.  There are about 50 students involved in this production both onstage and backstage.  Arthur Miller’s classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s most basic fears and suspicions.

  • At our Lay Witness Mission retreat his year, the theme song was “Victory In Jesus”. What a great song.

  • The wet/dry vote in Spencer County was a big talk around town over the past few months; and who could blame us?  The vote to make the county wet (or keep it dry) was one of the biggest controversies in the recent history of our region. 

  • James Elmo Casey was known as a cheerful man.

    Casey, a native of the Mount Eden area, died Thursday in Whitley County less than two months after his 102nd birthday party.

    “He was always cheerful,” said his grandson Barry Casey of Mercer County.

    Barry Casey said he remembers his grandfather as always joking around and pulling tricks on the children. He and his brothers and sister, Lyndon Casey, Jeffrey Casey and Sibyl Stricklin, would spend time on the farm near Mount Eden where their grandfather was a lifetime farmer.

  • Chapter 7

    My harmonica had to be here somewhere. I had it before we arrived at the tent. It was raining cats and wiener dogs! I should have worn my raincoat, but I didn’t know I would be gone so long.

    Oh no!  I hadn’t told my family I was leaving.

    When I realized I’d dropped my harmonica, I thought I could walk outside the tent and find it. I had meandered off in the pouring rain without telling anyone. I was in trouble – in more ways than one!
