  • There’s plenty of talk these days about financial troubles.  Controversial solutions are being pushed, cutbacks are being made, and businesses are closing down.  Our nation, our state, and our local government are all seeking to expand care for those in need while at the same time cutting costs.  Even the Governor’s annual free Derby Day Breakfast included a price tag this year.

  • National Day of Prayer tomorrow

  •  High school seniors from Anderson, Shelby and Spencer Counties will have a rare opportunity to go behind the scenes in a local courtroom. District Court Judge Donna Dutton will select local students to spend a day with her serving as Junior Court Clerks.

  • It was between 461 million and 444 million years ago, during the late Ordovician (Or-do-vish-in) period of Earth’s history, that a cataclysmic event apparently occurred in what is now southeastern Shelby County, Ky.

    Of course there was no Shelby County then, no Spencer County, no Kentucky, no United States and no people - just some primitive fish and other ocean organisms beginning to appear.

  • Some of the Spencer County High School SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions) officers attended the 2009 PRIDE Youth Conference at the Kentucky Convention Center on April 9 and 10.  This leadership event allowed students and sponsors to gain knowledge, skills, and ideas regarding tobacco, alcohol, drug, suicide and bullying prevention from other groups of young people and advocates who are making a difference in their communities.
