  • LETTER: Thanks for honoring others

    I would like to thank Signature Health Care of Spencer County for having the Hall Of Fame Cafe. It was such a wonderful thing to honor the individuals who were so well deserving for their accomplishments during their lifetime. It was such a magnificent affair!

  • Reynolds family gets a fresh start in Habitat’s first home

    Outside, snow showered the front lawn of Spencer County’s first Habitat for Humanity house with a frosty blanket. Inside, members showered much warmer blessings for a happy, healthy life as Lisa Reynolds and her family were finally handed the keys to their new home.

    “I want to say thank you to everyone who has allowed this for us,” said Reynolds to the more than 60 people who gathered inside the Hillview Estates home for Sunday’s dedication.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: It is better to give than to receive

     

    When I was a little kid I would hear people say “It is better to give than to receive.” I wondered what they meant, because I sure looked forward to Christmas and my birthday each year. As a kid it seemed to me that it was better to receive than to give. Well, I suppose that may be somewhat of a typical attitude for a child along with a number of other attitudes that parents try to change over time.

  • Witnessing history: The inauguration of President Barack Obama

    Before he headed off to Washington, D.C. Monday morning, Dr. Charles Burton said he was uncertain how much of the Presidential Inauguration he would be able to witness. Some estimates have placed the number of people wanting to be a part of the historical event of upwards to two million. Burton said his hopes were to at least catch a glimpse of the parade as Barack Obama marched his way into being America’s first black president.

  • FROM THE WORD: Coming of the Lord

    As we look as the coming of the Lord.

    Revelation 22:11-21 He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still. And, behold, I come quickly; and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the first and the last. Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

  • Kentucky finds its (over-hyped) ‘third scorer’ – Porter-Harris-Stevenson

    One advantage of standing at this corner for more years than I will admit, is witnessing the annual parade of remedies on “how to fix the Wildcats.”

    Big Blue Nation assistant coaches know their hoops and some have reasonable ideas, but still take cues from the media.

    A few weeks ago Jay Bilas spoke five words that shook UK’s Nation to its socks. ESPN’s hoops analyst had apparently discovered basketball’s Dead Sea Scrolls. “Kentucky needs a third scorer,” Bilas said.

    Behold, a Cecil B. DeMille moment.

  • LETTER: All invited to first Habitat dedication

  • A MATTER OF OPINION: What are they afraid of?

    The Kentucky Department of Education and a whole host of other taxpayer-funded education organizations are trying to influence a local court into allowing the Spencer County Board of Education to continue evaluating the superintendent’s performance in secret.

    Our superintendent who:

    • administers a yearly school budget of $20.7 million (comprised of local, state and federal tax monies);

    • is responsible for the education of 2,676 Spencer County children; and

  • All-American youth

    Spencer County’s Youth All-American selections Dalton Goodlett and Will Eldridge helped their 8th Grade Limited East Squad to an exciting 16-14 win last Saturday in San Antonio’s Alamodome.

    Both players were picked after completing Spencer County Middle’s championship season. They were drafted as running backs and defensive ends by Football University, but once there saw the team was short on linemen and both unselfishly agreed to move to those positions.
