  • LETTER: What the airport was for

    The intent of an airport in Spencer County was not what you think Woodie. The intent of the airport, as I was told, was to bring some companies to Spencer County,  bring companies to service the airport, repair aviation instruments, possibly a small aircraft airframe and power unit repair center.

  • Acid bombs

    Spencer County police are currently looking for individuals responsible for three homemade acid bombs that have been found intact in residential areas in the last three weeks.  

    Two of the bombs, also known as “MacGyvers,” were reportedly found in the Macintosh Farms subdivision and, most recently, one was found on the ground by a mailbox on Summer Court in the Seasons subdivision. No explosions or injuries were reported.

  • What the Bible says about repentance

    The book of Acts is the first gospel of the New Testament church. Today I am going to write many scriptures from the books of Acts on repentance. Most people know that without repentance there is no forgiveness of sin.

    Let’s look at the first sermon Peter preached. When they heard the Lord Jesus Christ preach, they asked Peter what they must do?

    “Then Peter said unto them, repent, and be baptized everyone of you in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins, and ye shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. “ Acts 2:38.

    Yet, outrage and legal action threats from a lawyer representing University of Kentucky’s athletics department last week against the Chicago Sun-Times, then by the Anthony Davis family this week, leaves us to wonder “The (man) doth protest too much, methinks.”

    Let’s all take a deep breath and remember dog days make news cycle choices a little daffy. Let’s chill out with an Ale-8-One and think Governor’s Cup.

  • Time is ripe for Kentucky melons

    The time is ripe for Kentucky cantaloupes and watermelons.  Americans consume about 14 pounds of watermelon a year and about 11 pounds per year for cantaloupes, according to the United States Department of Agriculture. But how do you pick the best ones? 

  • Women to admire

    “One, two, three, four, five,” said 15-year-old Brittany Ware as she took inventory of the glinting gold medals she has accrued over a seven-year involvement with Special Olympics, an athletic organization and competition for individuals with intellectual disabilities. Twelve silver and bronze medals sat nearby waiting to be counted – as did a nest of multicolored ribbons. 

  • Habitat sees progress on house No.2

    Under a sweltering sun, three volunteers worked quickly to evenly spread wet concrete as it flowed from a nearby truck Monday morning. But Kelly Creed didn’t mind. As construction chairman of Spencer County Habitat for Humanities, he was just thrilled to see progress on the site.
