  • Do you feel it yet?

    I know it isn’t even December yet, but do you feel it?  The holiday season is upon us in full strength.  Some TV networks are running Christmas programming 24 hours a day.  The stores have had trees and decorations up since before Halloween.  I’m exhausted already.

  • Community Thanksgiving Meal

     

    Volunteers from at least six different churches took part in serving the Community Thanksgiving Meal on Wednesday evening at Taylorsville Community Church. The free meal featured turkey and all the trimmings and was an outreach effort by the area churches.

  • Close isn’t good enough for Bears this year

     

    Last year, the Spencer County Bears struggled through an 11-18 season, which included a heart-breaking two-point loss to Collins, an overtime loss in the district tournament to Anderson County, and a triple overtime loss to Shelby County.

    As the old saying goes, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades, so while those tight games against district foes didn’t put any wins in the record books, they may create a little confidence for this year’s team.

  • Lady Bears are growing up

     

    After two years of fielding one of the youngest teams in the region, the Spencer County Lady Bears now feel they have the experience and maturity to take the next step. They still have only one senior on the team, but this group has logged a lot of varsity minutes and should be prepared for the new season.

    “The perspective has changed a lot, said third-year coach Brandy Scott. “We are a very seasoned teams in terms of experience, but we are also more mature now. We still were not quite there last year.”

  • Search for ways to help hungry Kentuckians

    The holiday season is well under way. Many of you enjoyed a bountiful Thanksgiving feast with your loved ones and will do so again during Christmas and New Year’s Day.

  • Choosing and caring for live Christmas trees

    It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. I have family visiting for Christmas, so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.

  • Agriculture - About that mistletoe

    Once autumn leaves have fallen, mistletoe becomes highly visible on large trees throughout Kentucky. Phoradendron, the scientific name for Kentucky’s most common variety of this parasitic plant, means tree thief. These small leafy plants are commonly found on twigs and branches of many hardwood species in the southern United States. Mistletoe extracts—steals— water, mineral elements and food from tree hosts; hence the name.

  • From our readers - Climate change is real

    After reading your recent editorial “Don’t Fall for Fake News” I was inspired by how much we agree. Fake news is dangerous. Readers and viewers must double-check it for accuracy, whether it comes from the Internet or CBS, NBC, CNN or even FOX.

  • From our readers - Presidential election recount is just more partisan politics

    The federal election is completed and the country has overwhelmingly elected Donald Trump as our next president. The electoral vote was 306 for Trump (including Michigan) to 232 for Clinton. Now we can move forward and get down to business, right?

  • From our readers - Raffle winners announced
