  • COLUMN: A welcomed, unexpected guest

    Well, this month begins the second year since this column was first presented in The Spencer Magnet. It has been a privilege to come to you each and every week with articles that can benefit most of the readers. I have had many occasions for personal feedback when I am shopping at our local business establishments. In fact, many of my latest office appointments have come directly from readers who have called and present a problem that is being experienced.
    This week’s column is something very, very personal and I continue to be amazed at this event.

  • Mighty Mights, Juniors bring home wins against Highview

    On Saturday, Aug. 25, the Spencer County Stallions traveled to Okalona to take on the Highview Mustangs at Southern High School. Both the Mighty Might and Junior divisions would play games on a sunny and warm morning.
    First up were the Mighty Mights, led by starting quaterback Brayden Duke. Though the hard-hitting and fast Highview team is always tough, the fast running style of the Stallions was too much to stop. The Stallions scored repeatedly, closing out the fast paced game with a pass from Duke to Wade Hutt for a touchdown, making the final score 31-0.
