  • Election 2008 countdown: Are you ready?

    Predictions are that lines will be long at polling places nationwide this coming election day – and local voters should expect nothing different, said Spencer County Clerk Judy Puckett.

    Of Spencer County’s 11,213 registered voters, about half are expected to cast their ballot next Tuesday. That figures out to about 5,600 people voting at one of 6 locations.

    “We just ask for everyone’s patience,” said Puckett. “We want to make sure everyone has the opportunity to vote.”

    “If you’ve got time to breathe, you’ve got time for music,” said Tina May of Murphy’s Echo, quoting a member of the famous “Darlin’s” from the Andy Griffith Show.

    Murphy’s Echo consists of May and her three sons, Isaac, 12, Cory, 15 and Tyler, 18.

  • Historic Pathways: A Bridge, a Burning Cross and an Innocent man

       Some of the contents of my files are a mystery to me. I have notes on little  pieces of paper that contain names, addresses and phone numbers, or clippings from newspapers that have been in folders for years. I can’t scratch my head too much trying to remember who some of the people were or why I saved their addresses or phone numbers because my hair is too thin and it would be dangerous. Some of them aren’t too difficult to decipher, however.

     My brother was the best digger around! He had dug potatoes and postholes, but unfortunately he dug himself into a great big hole. When the phone rang, Mom asked, “Chloe, can you answer that?  It’s probably Woody.” When I answered and heard Woody’s voice, I could tell he’d been crying. “What’s the matter, Woody?” I asked. “Didn’t you like the concert?” “Oh Chloe, the concert was terrific,” Woody sobbed.
