  • COLUMN: Asparagus is a garden investment

    I am only now recovering — it has been four days since Andy and I planted out 100 asparagus crowns. Planting asparagus is an investment on all accounts — time, labor, money, patience — and then the big payoff, which is fresh asparagus for two months each spring right from your own garden.

  • COLUMN: Early summer could come at a price

    Without looking at the calendar, Kentuckians might easily be fooled into thinking it is early June; but in fact, spring has just begun.

  • COLUMN: Jesus must be both savior and Lord

    Revelation 3:20 says, “Behold, I stand at the door and knock: if any man hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and will sup with him and he with me.”
    I believe many people have opened the door and invited Jesus in their heart, but many times they forget to make Jesus the lord of their life because they start thinking about a sin they cannot give up. If this happens, sin will devour you.

  • EDITORIAL: From our office to your mailbox

    This time next week, you may just find a surprise in your mailbox.
    Twice each year, The Spencer Magnet publishes a countywide sample, which is mailed to every household in Spencer County. Next Wednesday, April 4, is the first of those editions this year.
    We hear in life that nothing is truly free, but we at the Magnet beg to differ.
