  • LETTER:Spare families from the heartbreak of alcohol

    I am a mother with a broken heart. My only child (a son), whom I adored, became a victim of alcohol abuse at the age of 36 when he took his own life.

    Bryan was a bright, intelligent boy, was a talented artist, his heart was filled with love and compassion and he had a wonderful sense of humor. Bryan was raised in church, he made a profession of faith at the age of seven and he attended the church’s Awana club where he achieved earning a Timothy trophy. What a bright, wonderful future this miracle from God had before him.

  • Faith for Today: Trusting God and doing good

    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.

  • Rain hampers ball games

    The ball fields were quiet the past week as rain washed out the bulk of the schedule for both boys baseball and girls softball at Spencer County High School.

    In the lone game last week, the Bears dropped a 13-3 decision to Kentucky Country Day on the road last Thursday, as their seasonal record fell to 7-10.

    The boys do have a full week scheduled and hopefully the weather will be more cooperative.
