  • Keeping the promise

    “Keeping the Promise,” our plan to save Kentucky’s pension systems, keeps the promise made to Kentucky’s current employees while also meeting the legal and moral obligations we owe to those who have already retired. Promises made are promises kept.

    Make no mistake: there will be no changes, clawbacks or reductions to the paychecks of current retirees, and there will be protections for healthcare benefits. That is a promise you can literally take to the bank.

  • Planting garlic and harvesting sweet potatoes

    There are two categories of garlic to consider:  Allium sativum, or softneck garlic and Allium ophioscordon, or hardneck garlic.   Softneck garlic is the easiest and most widely cultivated because the bulbs are large and the cloves and skin are tight, which prevent moisture loss and allows for longer storage.

  • Be children of light

    The other day, I watched a little boy, maybe 10 or 11 years old, walking out to his mom’s car.  Walking is really not what he was doing, he was literally skipping.  I was talking to his mother, so I know he wasn’t going anywhere particularly exciting, but he had a real spring in his step.  That little man was enjoying life, even the simple act of walking to the car was an exercise in joy.

  • Fields of Faith

     

    Several hundreds students, parents and others from the community showed up at the high school football field Wednesday night for the Fellowship of Christian Athlete’s Field of Faith event. It was a night of worship, testimony and speaking that’s a national event, as schools across the country took part. This was the fourth year Spencer County has participated.
