Today's Features

  • Pumpkins have been on sale for weeks, children have obsessed over their costumes and somewhere in the middle of it all is the story of All Hallow’s Eve.  

    Halloween, as it is known today, has its origins in something a bit more interesting than just pumpkin carving and candy collecting.  In fact, the evening’s festivities marked the beginning of winter for the ancient Celtic race of the Druids. 

  • Trunk or Treat at Risen Lord Lutheran

    Risen Lord Lutheran church would like to invite you to Trunk or Treat from 5 p.m. until 8 p.m. Friday. There will be trophies for best costumes, an inflatable and food. The church is located at 5138 Taylorsville Road near the Elk Creek Grocery/Restaurant. Call 502-477-6557 for information.

  • ROBIN BASS/The Spencer Magnet

  • Spencer Magnet reader Lynn Noel sent in these photographs of one healthy chrysanthemum owned by Ted and Betty Goodlett of Bloomfield.

    Noel said that the five-inch pot mum was purchased in the spring and later transplanted under this flag pole.

    “It seems to have found new life,” said Noel. “I pray that our service men and our country find new life under her too.”

     

  • Sure, the Mount Eden woman’s book is filled with fascinating facts about chimpanzees, surprising specifics about kangaroos and pleasant pictures of pooches -- and even portraits of pigs. But Paula Sparrow’s Kentucky Living’s Creature Comforts is more than 147 pages highlighting the state’s animal sanctuaries.

    Just ask Teresa Bottom, founder of Lifebridge for Animals, an organization in Shelbyville dedicated to cutting down on pet overpopulation.
