    All Saints Catholic Church 3 Christmas Masses

    All Saints Catholic Church will have the following Christmas Masses:

  • Preserving your poinsettias

    Now that we are in December, everyone’s thoughts turn toward the holidays.  Each year, I like to pass along the following tips and information about the most popular plant of the holiday season, the poinsettia.

    Traditional red and green colors are well represented in the flowers available for the holidays. Poinsettias, the most popular and spectacular holiday flowers, can combine both these colors.

  • 150 years of highlighting you

    The Spencer Magnet has reached an important milestone this year. The newspaper is celebrating its Sesquicentennial, and with this accomplishment, we focus much of this week’s edition on ourselves as we revisit our own history in Spencer County.

    It seems quite odd to be celebrating ourselves, really. What we are most accustomed to doing is writing about and celebrating the achievements of others, so collating this edition has felt somewhat foreignor.

  • Adults needed to run county

    This week’s edition of The Spencer Magnet is one that many may hang on to because this is the issue in which we commemorate 150 years of recording the local news of the day.

    Our community has come a long way in the last century and a half. Sadly, what we see in the political landscape does not bode well for future success. Instead of people working together to move us forward, bickering and downright childish behavior seems to be ruling the day.

  • “fix-NICS” legislation is not what it seems

    ALERT: Feinstein/Schumer sponsored gun legislation that amends the “Brady bill” will be added to Concealed Carry Reciprocity bill (HR 38) in the House this week.

  • Bill would create tip line for legislative missteps
  • FROM OUR READERS - Masonic Lodge thanks breakfast supporters

    Taylorsville Masonic Lodge would like to thank our community for the support of our monthly country ham breakfast.
    This breakfast helps us to give back to our community. We help the Back Pack Buddies and have also donated bicycles to our elementary schools encouraging perfect attendance. We have donated to the Sheriff’s Shining Star program and our lodge helps with the Angel Tree in our community. The breakfast we have in December earmarks all the proceeds toward the Angel Tree.

  • Gov. Bevin calls for censure and removal of lawmakers in scandal

    Gov. Matt Bevin called on the Kentucky House to “censure and remove” lawmakers involved in a secret sexual harassment settlement if they continue to ignore his demands that they resign from the Legislature.

    Calling the scandal “cancer in our legislative body,” the governor increased pressure on lawmakers in forceful remarks made at Saturday’s Republican State Central Committee meeting in Frankfort.

  • Bears open season with two wins in three games

     

    Only a heartbreaking overtime loss to Franklin County last week has prevented the Spencer County Bears from opening their season with a perfect 3-0 record.

    After a season-opening win on the road at Kentucky Country Day, the Bears ended their first week with a convincing 20 point victory over visiting Taylor County Saturday evening.

  • Girls look impressive in win

     

    The margin was 22 points, but it felt much larger Saturday night as the Spencer County Lady Bears tipped-off their season with an impressive victory over Holy Cross in Louisville.

    Spencer County demonstrated its size advantage early on, going inside early and often to take a 13-4 lead. Seniors Chelsea Stephens and Amie Conley combined for nine of the Lady Bears’ first 11 points, most of which came inside the paint.
