  • You can prevent hay bale or barn fires if you bale hay at appropriate moisture levels and monitor the temperature of recently baled hay.

    Generally, hay will begin a heating phase within one to two days after baling. During this time, you should monitor hay to make sure it does not reach temperatures that can damage the hay or lead to spontaneous combustion.

  • One of my favorite things about summer is my front row seat at the orchestra.  The orchestra of insects, that is.  Late summer, when temperatures cool down enough to turn the air conditioner off and open the windows, we fall asleep to the sounds of katydids, crickets and cicadas.  I sometimes cheat in the heat of the summer and crack the window in my office so I can hear the insects and the birds as I work at the computer or in the kitchen.

  • It’s not too late to continue to enjoy your garden and to add new plantings. You can grow a variety of produce in Kentucky gardens in the coming weeks and have several fresh items available well into the fall.

    Cooler nights later in the year can increase the sugar content of many crops and thus increase their quality. Cooler nights also slow growth, so your crops can take longer to mature than in the summer. Keep this slower pace in mind when you check seeds for days to maturity.

  • Corn has been a staple food for centuries.  It was first cultivated by Indian peoples in Central America; in fact, the adoption of agriculture and the art of cultivating gave way to the grand cities of the Aztec and Mayans.   What would the world be without corn and potatoes, both of which were first cultivated in Central America?

  • Dear Spencer County Families:

    It is with great pride and excitement that I write this letter of introduction to you as the newly appointed Principal of Spencer County Elementary School. I am honored to have the opportunity to lead a school with such a rich tradition that has produced so many outstanding students.

  • Welcome Back Tigers!

    Buses are fired up, hallways are waxed and teachers are preparing classrooms.  Why?  Because we are excited about a new school year!  

  • On behalf of our Spencer County Middle School faculty and staff, I’d like to welcome everyone to the 2016-2017 school year.  I pray that each of you have had a blessed summer.  

  • Welcome back to school Spencer County High School Bears.

  • Dear Parents and Guardians,

    I hope everyone has had a safe and restful summer. I am taking this opportunity to address some important health related issues for this upcoming school year.

    The restart of school means a fleet of buses back on the roads. With plenty of narrow, winding roads to travel, being a bus driver in Spencer County requires a particular attention to safety.

    For all the other drivers, sharing the road with the buses also takes caution.

  • Now that we have completed the projects of summer, experienced vacation memories with family, and enjoyed simple pleasures such as basking beside a pool or fishing from the lake, I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you back to another exciting year of teaching and learning in Spencer County Schools.

    Teachers are busy organizing classrooms and planning lessons, while administrators are addressing last-minute preparations in eager anticipation of receiving children on August 10th.  

  •  

    School starts back in Spencer County next week, and students, parents and grandparents packed the Spencer County High School Saturday morning for the annual Health Fair and ReadiFest.

    Whether they were experienced students who were gearing up for their final year of high school, or youngsters just getting ready to begin their journey, there was an air of excitement that accompanies fresh starts.

    Students lined up to get free school supplies, get various health exams and gear up for the coming school year that starts on August 10.
