Today's News

  • Excitement found in offense

    The Spencer County Bears kickoff the 2009 football season Friday night when they host East Jessamine at 7:30. This year’s squad is made up of familiar names, new names, and maybe most importantly more names than any Bears team in the past.

  • Stallions season opener

    During the recent season opener for the Spencer County Stallions youth football league, two out of the three teams won.

    The Mighty Mites beat the KYS Steelers 20-6, while the Pee Wee’s won 24-12 against their age group from the same league.

  • Is your pet worthy of being idolized?

    The new extended deadline to get your pet’s photo entered in this year’s contest is August 24 at 5 p.m.

  • What's Happening: Spencer County's community calendar

    Weather siren testing

    Spencer County Emergency Management would like to remind residents that the emergency weather sirens will be tested at noon the third Wednesday of each month. If the siren sounds at any other time, it is to provide residents warning of a tornado spotted in the area.

  • Taking us back to Bizzaro World

    Back to Bizzaro World, with Rick and Vick. Confessions, concessions, remorse and apologies.

    Never mind. Soon enough a new wave of stupidity-turned-lawyer spin will move Rick Pitino and Michael Vick names off front pages, off ESPN’s screen roll and off a Letterman punch line list.

    Troubling, Pitino’s link to an abortion, but I am not among those stepping onto ivory tower balconies calling for Pitino to resign, be fired or hanged in effigy. He knows his demons. We know ours.

  • Church happenings

  • LETTER: Democracy at work

    Do you feel it in the air? Can you smell it? Most of all can you hear it? 

  • Online Trading Post is open for agribusiness

    Over the past couple of years, the Spencer County Extension Service has sponsored the Spencer Co. Trading Post, an online classified system for Agricultural and Horticultural products and services.  But recent changes to our website forced me to shut the Trading Post down until upgrades to the listing service could be made.

    After a few months with the Trading Post closed, I’m glad to say that it is now re-opened.

  • BELIEVE IN HIM: Symptoms of the heart, part 2

    “Take two pills and call me in the morning.”

    At times, the heart may produce symptoms of a possible problem that requires immediate medical attention while at other times produce mild symptoms that cause no need for concern at all. For example, a person that is relaxing in a lazy chair may need to consult a medical professional should his heart begin to accelerate at great speed without cause. On the other hand, someone who has been running a marathon would not be as concerned with a higher heart-rate.

  • LETTER: How about some honest journalism?

    I am amazed you printed Carl Turner’s letter in last week’s Magnet. I began becoming politically aware more than twenty years ago. I’ll give an example from a different newspaper.

    “Police gun down man who allegedly shot officer.”
