  • “I have not seen or heard from my son in four weeks. I know he was alive a month ago because he stopped by his grandparent’s house asking for food and money. You see, my son is running from multiple warrants for drug possession. I know that he has guns, and I’m afraid he’ll kill himself or someone else–including me. I’m actually praying he will get arrested and go to prison so that he can at least realize that he has a problem.

  • After the article on Jeptha Knob, this scribe just had to go up there and take a look. I took several photos of the magnificent view and what must be meteorite debris. There were some huge boulders and many colorful small pieces. I may as well make it clear immediately that I was there by invitation. The property on the knob is all private. You can’t just drive up there because locked gates won’t allow it.

  • The 2009 Louisville Area Communications Day was held Saturday, May 23 at the Bullitt County Extension Office in Shepherdsville. Spencer County was well represented at this event with six 4-H members participating in six demonstration categories and one speech category.

  • Get the word out about your business

    Greater Louisville Sports Commission will be sponsoring the Master’s Cycle Time Trial to be held in Spencer County on Wednesday, July 1.  These folks are looking to hand out a welcome packet filled with information and promotional items from businesses in Spencer County.

  • There is a rapidly growing advertisement concept floating around lately promoting acceptance; perhaps you have seen it. Most commonly seen on bumper stickers, the word “COEXIST” appears with letters made up of different symbols representing various belief systems.

  • Even though you may not have put away your winter coat just yet, it’s time to start thinking about 4-H summer camps.

    Resident 4-H camps are open to all Kentucky youth, ages nine through thirteen. Groups of youths from every county will attend one of the four resident camps during the nine-week summer season. The 4-H camping program provides a safe, secure and fun environment for Kentucky campers. An onsite EMT/health care provider is always available to take care of campers needs.
