    A new restaurant aspiring to get you hooked again on your Southern favorites is slated to open by the end of April in a prominent space in Elk Creek.

    Legacy Casual Dining will replace Scott’s Sports Cafe, which closed in January along with the adjoining Elk Creek Grocery at 4881 Taylorsville Road. The new restaurant will serve breakfast, lunch and dinner, with both counter and table service available.

    A grand opening is set for April 30.

    On January 26, Spencer County Elementary School’s classroom representatives competed in the National Scripps Spelling Bee.

  • Spencer County is among 111 public school districts statewide that delivered on a pledge made five years ago to improve the college- and career-readiness of its high school graduates by 2015.

    All of the state’s 169 P-12 superintendents and local board chairs signed the pledge – known as the Commonwealth Commitment to College and Career Readiness – in 2011. (In Kentucky, five public school districts do not have high schools). Each of the districts had a unique goal based on increasing its 2010 college- and career-readiness rate by 50 percent by 2015.

  • As spring has finally arrived, we have several upcoming trainings that may be of interest to you. All of these are part of our annual set of SOS classes. If you are a resident of Spencer County, you should have received a flyer in the mail a couple of weeks ago. If not, you can call our office to get one, or go to our website (address is at the end of this article) and view the class listing and register online.

  • With spring just around the corner, I thought it was time to brush up on some garden nomenclature. I have long been convinced in the value of understanding more about plants than the mere fact that they need sun, soil and water. The more we learn about what it is that plants need and how to determine if they are getting it, the more we will enjoy the act of gardening. What exactly do I mean about “understanding more”? Things like tilth, loam and pH can make or break your azalea garden, and adding sulfur or lime can change the growing environment, for better or worse.

  • Have you ever been out walking or driving in the early morning and really seen the dawn break? I mean, that moment when the sun really first peeks over the horizon in a blaze of glory. The sky has been growing lighter for a while, shot with pinks and golds, but suddenly the morning twilight is banished. The true light has risen into the sky.

    If you are ever driving East at that moment, you know the light just overwhelms everything. I end up clawing for my sunglasses and hope I don’t run into anything in the next five seconds.
