  • This morning I woke up thinking about real true love. A few month’s ago I was ordained a Baptist preacher. When I got home I told my wife, Roberta, “You know, hon, you have been married to a sheriff, a judge, and now a preacher.” She said, “Yes, but, you know, I married a sawmiller.” I said, “You know, you are right.”

  • An article posted on CNN.com, Telescopes to show universe soon after Big Bang, claims the future construction of the world’s largest telescopes with mirrors ranging from 25 to 42 meters (80 to 137 feet) in diameter “will be able to show what the universe was like when it was just a few hundred million years old and emerging from a period of total darkness after the Big Bang.”

  • Bill Drury, of Taylorsville, has joined Jackson+Metts Business Brokers Ltd., enabling him to assist business owners interested in selling their businesses.

    Drury is the first broker to affiliate with the newly-formed Jackson+Metts company, a joint venture of the Jackson Group LLC founder Ben Jackson and Metts Company Realtors Sandy and David Metts.

    A licensed realtor since 2004, Drury will continue to work with Metts Company Realtors, representing buyers and sellers of residential and commercial properties.

  • The new extended deadline to get your pet’s photo entered in this year’s contest is August 24 at 5 p.m.

  • Weather siren testing

    Spencer County Emergency Management would like to remind residents that the emergency weather sirens will be tested at noon the third Wednesday of each month. If the siren sounds at any other time, it is to provide residents warning of a tornado spotted in the area.

  • Over the past couple of years, the Spencer County Extension Service has sponsored the Spencer Co. Trading Post, an online classified system for Agricultural and Horticultural products and services.  But recent changes to our website forced me to shut the Trading Post down until upgrades to the listing service could be made.

    After a few months with the Trading Post closed, I’m glad to say that it is now re-opened.

  • “Take two pills and call me in the morning.”

    At times, the heart may produce symptoms of a possible problem that requires immediate medical attention while at other times produce mild symptoms that cause no need for concern at all. For example, a person that is relaxing in a lazy chair may need to consult a medical professional should his heart begin to accelerate at great speed without cause. On the other hand, someone who has been running a marathon would not be as concerned with a higher heart-rate.

  • Thinking of jumping into the shark-infested waters known at entrepreneurialism? Best not to take that leap with out a buddy swimmer watching your back.

    That is what the volunteers at SCORE: Counselors to America’s Small Business in Louisville can provide – someone to look out for small business owners and possibly keep them from drowning.

    “Ninety-nine percent of the business in this country is entrepreneurial. They represent the core of economic activity in a community,” said Joe Hatfield, chairman of the Louisville chapter of SCORE.
