  • Editor’s note: The following is the winning essay written by SCHS Sophomore Skylar Volz:

    Dear Kentucky Representatives,

  • Wow, have you seen those “Get Cash Now” commercials? I wasn’t really paying attention, but I caught the end of one the other night when that little disclaimer blurb flashed up. You know the one you can barely see and never have the time to read? Anyway, all I saw was 99.25 percent APR. You’ve got to be kidding.

    It isn’t hard to find the art classroom at Taylorsville Elementary School, but once you get there, it’s easy to get lost in the art. The pottery will carry you to times past, to peoples far away. The paintings will make you feel like you’re right there in the scene.

    At TES, every student spends 50 minutes in art class each week. The caliber of the art is a testament partly to the giftedness of Spencer County’s kids, partly to the talent of their teacher, Catherine Knapp.

    The rules on amending soil have changed over the years. Part of the change relates to the fact that good soil is hard to come by in new developments where enormous earth moving equipment is used to level trees and land. This equipment not only removes valuable topsoil, it also compacts the subsoil and kills much of the living organisms that make up a healthy soil system. The less we disturb the soil the better, but for many the reality is bleak so some sort of amendment is necessary in order to improve tilth, drainage and nutrition for our plants.

    The Kentucky state veterinarian’s office is monitoring the avian influenza outbreak in poultry flocks in southern Indiana to protect Kentucky’s $1 billion poultry and egg industry.

    One day earlier in December, I came home to find a string of small colorful bags attached to my living room door frame. It was quickly explained to me that we would be celebrating Advent with my German exchange student by opening up one bag a day and enjoying small delectable goodies like marzipan, German chocolate or gingerbread cookies.

    Deborah Lewis was nominated by Spencer County High School faculty for her determination and participation in extra-curriculars such as softball, and leadership amongst her peers. She is a great student, always positive and a hard worker.

  • I could hardly sleep the night before. Long before the alarm rang to get me up for school I was already awake and dressed. It was dress-up day for the fourth grade class at Keavy Elementary School (home of the Blue Jays). All of the students had instructions to dress up as their favorite character from a story book.
