  • Reds give fans optimism ... again

    It’s the first of June and the Cincinnati Reds are tied for first place in the NL Central with St. Louis.

    In recent years June is the month when reality sets in for most Cincinnati fans, even the most optimistic of us. The Reds have teased us many times since 1990, the year they swept the World Series in four games against the favored A’s, completing a surprising wire-to-wire first place run in their division. Since that title run, success and winning records have been few and far between.

  • Bledsoe flap sets off media

    The Eric Bledsoe flap. Lemme get this straight ...

    • Linking John Calipari to Bledsoe’s high school shenanigans is a grassy knoll stretch.

    • Interesting, the quickness a New York Times story moved metro media in Kentucky to remind readers of Calipari’s two vacated Final Fours, Derrick Rose slickery getting into Memphis U, then Cal’s jump to Kentucky ahead of the NCAA police.

  • Family Fun Day this Saturday

    Load up the kids in the car and head down to Ray Jewell Park this Saturday for a morning of fun and learning.

    The Spencer County Extension office, in conjunction with a long list of supporters, is hosting their first Family Fun Day June 5 from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.

    “Our purpose it to get people and families active and to get them doing things together,” said Allison Lewis, Family and Consumer Science Extension agent.

  • The purpose of Christian communion

    “While they were eating, Jesus took some bread, and after a blessing he broke it and gave it to the disciples, and said, ‘Take, eat; this is my body.’ And when he had taken a cup and given thanks, he gave it to them, saying, ‘Drink from it, all of you; for this is my blood of the covenant, which is poured out for many for forgiveness of sins.’” -Matthew 26:26-28

  • Which comes first? Chicken or the egg

    This is a question that many people ponder.  With the help of Kentucky Farm Bureau, Mrs. Ingram’s and Mrs. Lawson’s classes had the opportunity to learn more about this question. 

    A grant opportunity was offered by Kentucky Farm Bureau as a way to incorporate agriculture in the classroom.  With the money received from the grant, an incubator and other instructional materials were purchased to allow our students to have a hands-on learning experience with the baby chicks.

  • Baird selected to attend ag institute

    Stetson Baird, a junior at Spencer County High School, has been chosen to attend the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau.

  • Dream come true for new deputy

    Robert Thomas dreamed of becoming a police officer.

    After graduating from Spencer County High School in 2004, Thomas went to college. First to Jefferson Community College and then to Eastern Kentucky University where he studied criminal justice.

    “It’s something I’ve always wanted to do,” said the 24-year-old. “To keep people safe.”

  • Surveys, opinions and God’s word

    I want all Christian people to look at this survey. A survey of 1,000 protestant pastors conducted by an evangelical polling firm found that forty-seven percent agree that Islam is a very evil and wicked religion. However, such opinions may be confined mostly to the older generation.

    Evangelicals under 30 believe that there are many ways to God not just through Jesus.

  • Hometown recipes: Juliet Crawford's French Toast Casserole

    Juliet Crawford, of Mt. Eden, started making French toast casserole about a year ago when she found it on Paula Dean’s website. She said she likes to make it for potlucks, holidays and when she has company. Her favorite part of the recipe is the ease of it, because it can be assembled the night before.

    “You can have a cup of coffee and talk to people while it’s baking,” she said.

    Crawford recently served this dish at a breakfast meeting of the Waterford Homemakers.
