  • Masks are everywhere today. On Main street last week, kids in costumes were searching for candy and goodies. Maybe in your neighborhood you saw a few trick or treaters. You may have kids or grandkids who enjoy dressing up. Maybe you even put on a plastic mask or a wig or a pair of goofy glasses just to have a little fun. It’s just that time of year.

    My Facebook page is full of photos of masks and costumes, some elaborate, some simple, but all hiding the reality.

    Spencer County Middle School celebrated its record-high K-PREP scores last Friday at an academic pep rally dubbed “Grizzly Fest.”

    The school recently received the results of last spring’s test. SCMS students placed in the 90th percentile, a dramatic gain from its place in the 37th percentile just three years ago.

    “We have really high expectations,” principal Matt Mercer said before the event. “We work extremely hard.”
     

  • The horse keeps her eye on her trainer as he walks her, effortlessly eases her into a canter, then seamlessly into a trot around his huge arena.

    The mare knows Greg Kallmeyer, but just as important, he says, he knows her.

    Kallmeyer, at 54, has realized a dream. He just opened the Kallmeyer Equestrian Center in Burlington, giving horses a calm home, cushioned stalls, each with an open window from which heads poke out at will.

  • Last week, you may have noticed some extra school buses riding around Spencer County. We had the honor of hosting some FFA students from other states as they came to Louisville for what looks to be the final FFA Convention being held here for several years.

    Wednesday morning, there were several students from Wisconsin eating at a local establishment, and when I introduced myself, they were very courteous and respectful. After we chatted, they said they were heading into Louisville for the convention.

  • Some years are worse than others. I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there. Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in. On sunny days, they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write. A few weeks ago they showed up in droves. I need not worry about them as they sun themselves; but the ones that collect indoors, well your best bet is a vacuum cleaner.

  • A large number of people read this newspaper, in Spencer County and beyond. But you are reading this column right now, you are not a crowd or a large number of people. You are an individual. That’s how God sees you - as an individual.

    Tucked away off a narrow country road in Clark County, in the middle of a farm, 27 acres of hemp grew all summer. Now, the plants will be harvested and processed.

    Kentucky, hailed as a leader by industrial hemp advocates, has grown the hemp. Now the state is working on growing the industry.
