  • LETTER: You're invited to SCES' Fall Festival

    Spencer County Elementary School would like to take this opportunity to invite the entire community to our annual Fall Festival this Friday, October 29th. It is a night filled with dinner, games, activities, and an auction. This event is not just for kids from our school, but all children in the community. It is an event for families to enjoy time with each other.

    Take the night off from the kitchen and let us cook for you! Value Market will be providing dinner options. You can choose from a ribeye sandwich, hamburger, or hot dog basket.

  • LETTER: Signs show little respect

    I have lived in Spencer County my whole life – by choice, and, up until now I am proud of our community and felt safe. Lately, I feel that our community is “under attack.”

    If I was exploring a community with the idea of re-locating, I would certainly be deterred by huge signs depicting the community as one led by “crooks, thieves, and thugs.” If I was new to this community, I would wonder what kind of ills I had exposed my family to.

  • LETTER: Could campaign money be better spent?

    In a family, there are ties that outside forces cannot break. This closeness must be developed and accepted as a special gift. Once we accept each other and let a normal growth take place, our relationships will become stronger as the years go by.

    A community of friends helps each of us to look outside of self. We learn from each other, we play together, we worship the Lord together, we watch a maturity of living and let life take place without even trying. Friends and neighbors are gifts you can’t buy.

  • EDITORIAL: Now is the time

    A common complaint heard in grocery lines, and even at church, these days is about all the political commercials. They are unavoidable. Each side pitching their answer to all that ails on TV, radio and, of course, in newspaper. After a while, voters just tune it out.
