  • LETTER: Indoctrination of Spencer students

    I’m curious.

    I requested that my daughter (who attends Spencer County Middle School) not view the president’s speech last Tuesday.  As a former 8th grade Science teacher, here, and in Spencer County, let’s just say I wasn’t happy with the original lesson plan the U.S. Department of Education had sent to school district’s across this great nation.

  • Alcohol petition is valid

    The future of the wet/dry debate now lies in the hands of voters. A petition requesting a referendum for the purpose of legalizing the sale of alcohol has been deemed valid.

    Spencer County Deputy Clerk Abbi Nation said that of the nearly 3,000 signatures, a total 2,220 were found to be legitimate – more than enough to secure a special-election October 20.

  • Dogs Gone Wild: Chapter 1

    My golden opportunity! My chance to shine! My time to show my family that I’m a warrior, a champion, a real sportsman, uh, sportsdog! I’m sorry, I should introduce myself. I’m Mr. Dogwood, but my friends and family call me Woody. (Sometimes I’ll hear “Dogwood” if I’ve made a knucklehead decision or if my parents are trying to get my attention.) Anyway, I’m a black and tan miniature wiener dog who lives in the great state where I was born – Kentucky.

  • LETTER: Compliments to Coach Napper

  • Community center gets land donation

    The effort to build a community center in Spencer County recently got a big push forward when the owners of Tanglewood Golf Course offered to donate land for the project.

    Richard Travelstead, president of Reaching Our Communities, said members of the organization are elated with the offer.

    “This really shows the heart of the community and the desire to give back,” said Travelstead. “It’s amazing.”

  • LETTER: Help needed with Sabbath question

    I would like to ask your religious writers and all ministers of the church to explain where in the Bible Christ changed the Sabbath from the seventh day to the first day.

    In Hebrews 4:8, Paul wrote to the church: “For if Jesus had given them rest then would he not afterward have spoken of another day.” 

    Now please read Hebrews 4:1-11.

  • Will you be a Family Day STAR?

    Submitted by Deanna Felts, M.S.

    Seven Counties Services Regional Prevention Center

    When I was growing up, we knew dinner was on the table by 6 p.m.  We always ate together as a family every night (except when my brother had practice for basketball or baseball, my sister with orchestra and plays and me with track or softball).  Even with our extracurricular activities, we ate together more often than not.  It was a time of talking with each other about our day at school, work, friends, family etc.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Symptoms of the heart, part 4

    A friend of mine recently had a conversation with a young man regarding the college basketball coach, Rick Pitino, and the negative media attention he has received concerning allegations that have recently been brought against him.

    Maybe you have asked yourself, “How could he do such a thing?” After all, people of influence are held to a higher standard; they are expected to conquer the very desires that defeat us. And so the greater question would be: “How could anyone do such a thing?”

  • Lady Bears battle to beat Fort Knox

    The Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team scored a thrilling come-from-behind victory over visiting Fort Knox last week.

    Falling behind 3-1 at the half, the Lady Bears mounted a comeback that began early in the second period when Tori Palmer scored a goal three minutes in to draw the Lady Bears to within one goal.

    Less than ten minutes later, Palmer would strike again, kicking in the tying goal to knot the score at 3-3. Palmer would complete the hat trick by scoring her third goal in the half four minutes later, giving the Lady Bears a 4-3 lead.
