    Spencer County’s boys soccer team picked up two wins last week and have a modest three game winning streak following a 3-1 victory over Fort Knox on Wednesday and then a 3-0 shutout over Henry County on Thursday.

    Coach Paul Taylor said Wednesday’s road victory at Fort Knox was not a particularly good game, but it counts as a victory.

  • COLUMN: Life is like a vapor and then we vanish

    On September 28, I will be 81 years old – if I live that long. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was 31 years old.

The damage that has been done is irreversible.
