    Sometimes you need to get well away from your own backyard in order to see the horizon.   Recently, a group of students from Spencer County Middle School did just that. 

    On a three-day, two night trip from March 13 through 15, a total of 53 students, staff members and several chaperones took a trip to Chicago to expand their experience in the arts and humanities.   The toured the Museum of Science and Industry, viewed the world from the top of the Sears Tower, visited the Shedd Aquarium and were treated to a performance by the Chicago Symphony.

    The question of who will be responsible for the disposal of dead livestock in the county has finally come to a close – at least for the next 14 months.

    Spencer County Fiscal Court approved last Monday to enter into a contract with Dars, Inc. to provide the county’s removal services. The Clark County company, who began providing service locally last Wednesday, will be paid just under $24,000 annually to transport deceased livestock for rendering.

  • LETTER: Alcohol costs outweigh benefits

    I located here thirteen years ago from a wet county. Liquor stores are prominent. Beer and wine are now being sold in some grocery stores, restaurants, drugstores and convenient marts.

    I am now hearing the same promotional message that I heard at our town’s council meetings, “we need the money”. It was all about the money regardless of what it will do to some people morally.

  • LETTER: “Dry county is no safer”

    I am for Spencer County going wet. If they ever get the lodge at the lake going it will be dependant on alcohol-by-the-drink. The golf course would do much better if it were wet. If the non-drinkers think there is very little alcohol consumed in Spencer County, they would be surprised to know the reality of it. Many that enjoy a drink at home stock up on what they like. The others make small purchases and then when they run out, drive drunk to buy more and drink on the way home.
