Today's Features

  • Halloween is one of the anticipated holidays of the year for many people, but if a child suffers from food allergies, it can be downright frightful for them and their parents. You can support children with food allergies and other medical conditions by participating in the Teal Pumpkin Project.

  • There are two categories of garlic to consider:  Allium sativum, or softneck garlic and Allium ophioscordon, or hardneck garlic.   Softneck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight, which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.  

  • Agriculture Commissioner Ryan Quarles announced today that the Kentucky Department of Agriculture (KDA) has opened the application period for Kentuckians wishing to participate in the state’s industrial hemp research pilot program for the 2018 growing season.

  • Spencer County Elementary School has released their honor roll for the first nine-week grading period.

  • The other day, I watched a little boy, maybe 10 or 11 years old, walking out to his mom’s car.  Walking is really not what he was doing, he was literally skipping.  I was talking to his mother, so I know he wasn’t going anywhere particularly exciting, but he had a real spring in his step.  That little man was enjoying life, even the simple act of walking to the car was an exercise in joy.

  •  

    Several hundreds students, parents and others from the community showed up at the high school football field Wednesday night for the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Field of Faith event. It was a night of worship, testimony and speaking that’s a national event, as schools across the country took part. This was the fourth year Spencer County has participated.
     

     

  • Fall color has been slowly bleeding into the tapestry of our landscape due to our little stretch of dry weather. It is a natural reaction for a plant to show signs of fall color early when it is under stress. In fact, we have some crabapples that are blooming because they have completely defoliated.  No leaves mean the sun’s warmth coaxes bud break and bloom at the wrong time of the year.
