  • LETTER: A vote for Clevenger

    I am writing to commend to the attention of District 5 Sandy Clevenger’s candidacy for its representative on the Spencer County Board of Education.

    I have come to know Sandy very well both as a friend and colleague. Though Sandy does not officially represent my district on the Board, she indeed represents all citizens of Spencer County – children, parents, teachers, and administration. She has been accused of having an agenda and being bitter toward the school system.

  • Peanut Butter-Banana . . . salad?

    Ardia Herndon’s peanut butter and banana salad recipe has been a family favorite for generations on both sides of her family.

    “My husband’s aunt gave it to my grandmother probably seventy years ago. I’ve known it since I was a child,” said Herndon, who grew up in Wakefield but moved to Elk Creek when she married fifty-eight years ago. It was one of her husband’s favorites as a child. When he visited his aunt, he ate enough peanut butter banana salad to make himself sick.

  • LETTER: Signs show little respect

    I have lived in Spencer County my whole life – by choice, and, up until now I am proud of our community and felt safe. Lately, I feel that our community is “under attack.”

    If I was exploring a community with the idea of re-locating, I would certainly be deterred by huge signs depicting the community as one led by “crooks, thieves, and thugs.” If I was new to this community, I would wonder what kind of ills I had exposed my family to.
