    I want to thank all the numerous people who helped me with my campaign to be Spencer County judge-executive.  There are too many names to list, but many of you made phone calls on my behalf, talked to your friends and family, put my campaign signs in your yard,  and several even went door-to-door to help get out the vote for me.  I can’t thank you enough for all your hard work and support.   

  • LETTER: "Time for healing" after election

    The May 2010 primary is over.  All the candidates did their best to get the votes they did.  I know I did and I thank those good people who gave me their vote.  These next months must be a time for healing within our community as we move forward to the fall elections.  Let’s get behind the candidates and vote our consciences for the best government leadership we need and deserve.

  • Bears fall to Anderson 10-1

    The bats of the Spencer County Bears just couldn’t catch up to the fastball of Anderson County’s Jacob Russell Monday night as the Bears fell 10-1 in the opening round of the 30th District Tournament in Lawrenceburg.

    Russell, Anderson County’s three-sport star, proved a bit vulnerable early on, and the Bears actually took advantage in the first inning when Timmy Riley opened the game with a walk, advanced on a hit by Alex Sorrells, and then scored on a well-hit single by Steven Lear to give the Bears a 1-0 lead.

  • Asparagus is ripe to enjoy

    May is National Asparagus Month, which is appropriate because asparagus is currently in season.

    Asparagus can only be harvested locally for about six weeks in the spring, so now is the time to take advantage of its bounty. According to Betty Cheek, who has grown asparagus for many years, it is simple to cook. Fresh asparagus can be substituted in recipes that call for canned asparagus, but she says “Fresh asparagus is so much better than canned.”

  • Managing pastures, producing more

    Good pasture management practices are essential to increasing quality livestock forages by reducing undesirable weeds and plants. The goal is to encourage growth of a vigorous, dense stand of desirable forage grasses, yet limit weed germination and growth. Unwanted plants can germinate in thin pasture stands and are more likely to become established within these areas.
