  • Spencer County Habitat for Humanity Golf Scramble makes fundraising fun

    Spending a relaxing day on the golf course is a dream for many golfers, but for nearly 100 golfers who will be participating in the annual Habitat Golf Scramble this weekend at Tanglewood Golf Course, it’s also a chance to make the dreams of others possible.

    The fifth annual event benefits the Spencer County Habitat for Humanity, an organization that helps to provide adequate housing for those who might otherwise be unable to obtain it through more conventional methods.

  • Snider, Pollet win conservation contests

  • Library employee accepted into leadership institute

  • Guide simplifies tractor rollover protection

    Research shows that rollover protective structures (ROPS), when used in combination with a seatbelt, are 98 percent effective in preventing death and serious injury in the event of a tractor overturn. Nevertheless, more than a third of tractors in use today – and perhaps as many as 50 percent in Kentucky – still do not have these lifesaving structures.

  • Christians must pray

    I believe Christians should examine their prayer lives and see exactly where we stand with Jesus Christ. Do we really pray with humbleness through Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit? Or do we write out a prayer and get up and read it, afraid we will make a mistake when we are in a crowd? If we do, we make a mistake for not trusting Jesus enough to believe he can deliver through the Holy Spirit no matter what crowd we are in or where we are at.

  • HOME COOKING: Schiller’s berry-yogurt salad

    Elma Schiller of Elk Creek made up her recipe for berry yogurt salad.

    “It just sounded good. I thought well, I’ll try it, and it worked out fine,” she said.

    The recipe is easily adjustable, so that a small amount can be made for a snack or a large amount can be made for a luncheon salad. Schiller recently served this dish at a breakfast meeting for the Waterford Homemaker Club.

  • Swinging into Summer shape

    Warm temperatures and sunny days add up to spring fever and that means getting outside and becoming more active after a long, sedentary winter.  Your list of outdoor projects has probably moved into the priority pile.  The urge to get your bicycle out of the garage or take an afternoon nature trail hike is growing. You might even be thinking about some of those New Year’s resolutions to get into better shape in 2010. 

  • Recovery effort continues at lake

    The search for a missing Ft. Knox soldier continued Tuesday at Taylorsville Lake, after the 22-year-old man disappeared while swimming Saturday.

    U.S. Army Spc. Anthony M. Carter was reported missing by acquaintances at 4:15 p.m. May 29 – exactly one year after the last drowning at the lake.

    Witnesses told law enforcement that Carter swam to retrieve a floating soda can about 80 yards from their rented pontoon boat. The last time he was spotted, Carter was making his way back to the boat.

  • Reds give fans optimism ... again

    It’s the first of June and the Cincinnati Reds are tied for first place in the NL Central with St. Louis.

    In recent years June is the month when reality sets in for most Cincinnati fans, even the most optimistic of us. The Reds have teased us many times since 1990, the year they swept the World Series in four games against the favored A’s, completing a surprising wire-to-wire first place run in their division. Since that title run, success and winning records have been few and far between.
