  • FROM THE WORD: Understanding Jesus’ parable

    Mark 4:2-8 – And he taught them many things by parables, and said unto them in his doctrine, Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow: And it came to pass, as he sowed, some fell by the way side, and the fowls of the air came and devoured it up. And some fell on stony ground, where it had not much earth; and immediately it sprang up, because it had no depth of earth: But when the sun was up, it was scorched; and because it had no root, it withered away. And some fell among thorns, and the thorns grew up, and choked it, and it yielded no fruit.

  • Unpaid internship provide wealth of learning

    With graduation from the University of Kentucky quickly approaching, I was faced with a decision. Should I hop right into the job market, or should I take some time to investigate other things that I had aspired to do? I chose to delay the job search and instead apply for an unpaid internship in Washington D.C. with U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie. I’m glad I did. The experience was outstanding.

  • Local teens attend leadership conference

    More than 5,300 nationwide members, advisers, alumni, and guests of FCCLA; Family, Career and Community Leaders of America, gathered in Nashville, Tennessee July 12-16 for the 2009 National Leadership Conference.

  • Inching closer to a wet/dry vote

    County Clerk Judy Puckett said her staff has already begun the laborious task of certifying the local option petition to allow alcohol sales in the county, but she is not prepared to guess how long the process will take.

    “I’d be scared to say,” said Puckett.

    What she does know is that if the petition is validated, the election must occur somewhere between October 3 and November 2. That gives Puckett roughly two months to make sure the signatures on a petition she received last week represent registered Spencer County voters.
