  • GUEST COLUMN: Jesus will not be fooled

    I preached my first revival in September. It lasted five days and what a great infilling of the Holy Spirit it was.

    On Wednesday night, I told everyone to come back on Thursday night, because I was going to preach a hell -fire sermon. When I got back to where my wife, Roberta, and I were staying, I got to thinking.

    I perhaps should have not announced that I was going to preach about hell because maybe no one would come. To my surprise, more came that night than any other night.

  • ELECTION 2010 ANALYSIS: What went wrong?

    The Republican Party’s sweeping victory in the general election last week successfully altered Spencer County’s long-held political identity – and has left many of the Democrat faithful feeling strangely out of place.

  • Dressing up ordinary potato salad

    Madonna Cash got her recipe for scalloped potatoes from her daughter-in-law about two years ago. She usually takes it to potlucks rather than serve it at home because her husband does not care for olives. She recently served this dish at a potluck dinner meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild.

    Cash does not cook as much as she used to anymore now that her children are grown. Now she mostly makes cakes or cookies for her grandchildren whom she sees often. A particular favorite is her caramel cake.

    “Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds.” William James wrote. “A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”

    John Calipari danced last week. Scolding his players for not boxing out for rebounds, letting opponents push them around, the UK coach waxed comic, “ You get pushed into the cheerleader and you’ve got sparkles on the face when you come over (to the bench),” Cal said. “We’re like, ‘what the hell’s on your face?’

    Hilarious.

    Jim Riggs, of Fisherville, participated in a Veterans Day Celebration Saturday held by Guard Duty at Grace Chapel in Taylorsville.

  • Religious order moves in

    Several months ago, if you went to Captain’s Cove Resort on Taylorsville Lake, you might have found a party or a wedding reception underway.

  • Winless season

    The Spencer County Bears had one last chance to salvage its regular season Friday night but Anderson County proved to be just another loss in a disappointing winless season as the Bears fell to 0-10 on the year with a 48-21 loss.

  • PHOTO: Head-on collision

    Motorists were re-routed for more than an hour on KY 55 at Yoder Tipton Rd. last Wednesday while crews worked to rescue two victims in a head-on collision. Both motorists involved were transported to UofL Hospital: Phyllis Green, of Taylorsville, by helicopter; Joseph Scott, of Bloomfield, by ambulance. Police reports indicate that Green allegedly crossed the center line, striking Scott’s SUV.

  • Parents question coat rule

    As the weather gets cooler outside, the debate about Spencer County High School’s outerwear policy is heating up.

  • KARRER TAKES RACE

    The fact has long been established among politicians that the majority of Spencer County votes for Democrats. Not any more – at least, not for judge executive or sheriff.

    Republican challenger Bill Karrer soundly defeated Democrat incumbent David Jenkins, 4,480 to 2,451 in the 2010 general election Tuesday.

    Donald “Buddy” Stump, Jr., also a Republican challenger, narrowly defeated long-serving Democrat Sheriff Steve Coulter, 3,643 to 3,365.
