Today's Features

  • There is something magical about taking a boy on his first roller coaster ride.  There is something even more special when that boy is getting ready to enter the eleventh grade.

    Recently, 37 children and 13 adult chaperons from Spencer County made the short trip to Holiday World in Santa Claus, IN.   Much like any other group that does so over the course of the summer, they were put into groups and given name tags.   Some chaperons were parents, some were teachers and some were both.

  • May 30 and May 31 the Spencer County 4-H Horse Club, the “Trailblazers”, attended the District 3 Horse Show at Lakeside Arena in Frankfort. District is a regional pre-qualifying competition for the 4-H State Horse Show in July.

    The kids really started the weekend off with a bang, with Kelsey Bishop winning her first two classes on Saturday and taking home the Division I Pleasure High Point Award.

  • This year’s concert performance for the Spencer County Fair will bring home a Taylorsville native from the recording studios in Nashville, Tennessee.

    J.D. Shelburne will return to perform at the Spencer County Fair this Friday.

  • Is it possible to be a Christian and yet not go to church? That seems to be one of the most common questions I hear in Spencer Co. I hope you can handle frankness because space does not allow easing into the subject. I’ll answer that question in stages. First, the New Testament never considers the possibility that someone could be devoted to Jesus and yet have little or no devotion to Jesus’ other followers.

  • Unless you have been completely shut off from the outside world in the last few weeks, you have probably heard about the passing of a famous entertainer and are aware of the impact it made on the world.  But Michael Jackson is not the only person to have recently expired from life; Farrah Fawcett, Billy Mays and dozens of other semi-famous people have passed on from this life too.  So why has the media given so much attention to him?

  • Aquaculture enthusiasts will have an opportunity to learn more about the enterprise at a July field day in Frankfort.

    Kentucky State University and the Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service are offering a free Aquaculture Field Day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. EDT July 25 at KSU’s Aquaculture Research Center. Participants will have a chance to learn more about research regarding largemouth bass, koi, freshwater prawn, crayfish and paddlefish.

  • Heather Helton, Katherine Luckett, and Helisha Smith, members of the Spencer County Chapter of the Family, Career, Community Leaders of America, attended the FCCLA State Leadership Training in Hardinsburg recently. While in attendance Helton and Luckett were trained in their duties as regional officers.
