    Kentucky State Police Post 12 has partnered with the Spencer County schools and will be bringing “Friday Night Blue Lights,” to the football game Friday.

  • LETTER: Media trying to control election

    As we look at our election on November 4, we see the news media trying to control the outcome.

    Most of us know we have a two-party system with a one-party news media.

    Not many years ago, I listened to this bunch of garbage they threw out until I realized they were the ones that were going to destroy our country.

    I ask you to look at Governor Sarah Palin. What a breath of fresh air she brought to McCain’s campaign. She shook the news media up so that they had to come up with something to beat her down.

  • FROM THE WORD: Accept Jesus

    We had a preacher come to our church not long ago who preached a very stern message. The

  • LETTER: Boswell has a democratic solution

    If you are like me, you have watched with a sense of disgust and disbelief over the past few weeks as the results of the last 14 years of Republican greed, and short sightedness have come home to roost. You remember the “Republican Revolution of 1994” don’t you?

  • LETTER: Pulling for McCain

    When I vote next month, I’ll be pulling the lever for John McCain in the presidential race. I’m not completely sold that he’s the bastion of conservatism that I believe our nation is in dire need of, but my vote will be more of a tool of opposition against two forces that have combined to create a very real danger to the very heart of America.

  • From The Word: Step out in his name

    We had a lay witness mission retreat this past weekend.  It brought back great memories of praise.  

    If you have never tried praising the Lord, please try it.  I guarantee, you will like it.

  • PHOTO: Rematch with Oldham shows Bear’s growth

    Cody Ingram tries to maneuver around two defenders during a recent home game for the Spencer County Bears.

    The boys soccer team finished the season with a loss last Monday night during the opening round of district tournament play in Shelby County, but the game was a good measuring stick for how much improvement they made over the season.

    The Bears fell 5-1 to highly-regarded Oldham County, but in doing so, made great strides from earlier in the season when they lost to the same team 10-0 back in August.

    For the season, the Bears finished 4-13-2 on the year.

  • EMS looks at new rates

    Spencer County EMS, like many emergency medical services in the region, is discovering a trend in their line of work – patients that want to be treated, but don’t want a ride to the hospital.

    “That’s something we’ve seen an increase in,” said Spencer County EMS Director Darrell Stevens, who averaged his crews respond to between 15 and 20 such calls a month. “We go there, we treat them and they don’t want to be transported.”
