  • IN THE WORD: Trusting in God

    John 4:23-24 – “But the hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth: for the Father seeketh such to worship him. God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”

    As we look at what Jesus is telling us in these two verses, we see that we are to let the Holy Spirit take over our prayer life and our worship services. If we do not, we will get very little good out of either one.

  • Bears drop another one

    Last week, the Spencer County Bears were unable to match points with the big boys from 6A Bullitt Central. On Friday, they learned that the little guys are plenty good too, as they dropped a 25-7 decision at 1A Frankfort.

    Of course, Frankfort is one of the top small schools in the state and Bears’ Head Coach Matt Powenski said he still expects good things from his team but said they must learn from their early-season mistakes.

  • Crops, livestock suffering from dry spell

    Too little. Too late.

    That’s what many local farmers have to say about this week’s rain forecast. The dry summer months have left their crops wilting in the fields – and as the harvest approaches, many of them doubt the yield will even be close to normal.

    “We’re in a break even situation at best,” said Darrell Hardin, of Cox’s Creek.

  • BLOG UPDATE THURS.: From the front lines at the RNC


    We had to get up early for a Kentucky Delegation breakfast and commemorative photo session. It was fun to see everyone even though it was so early! We realized that this would be the last time we'd all be together. There was another luncheon today and then the last convention session with John McCain's speech!

  • Flight nurse helps with evacuation during Gustav

    The threat of Hurricane Gustav brought back memories of Katrina for rescuers last week as many across the country answered the call for assistance – including Taylorsville native Martin “Moe” Nethery.

    Nethery, a flight nurse paramedic for Air Methods Kentucky in Frankfort, and several of his co-workers flew down to Louisiana two Fridays ago he said. They packed up and went to help, having no idea what they would be coming up against or how long they would be away from their families.
