  • The recent ice storm was a good indication that the harsh months of winter have undoubtedly arrived, but the freezing temperatures and loss of electricity is not all that is to blame for a difficult start to the New Year. The tight economy has put a lot of people struggling just to keep food on the table.

    This problem is one of many that have encouraged members of the community to find a solution that can help meet some of the most basic needs in Spencer County with the help of Dare To Care.

    The Shelby County Area Technology Center and Jefferson Community and Technical College – Shelby Campus are offering an informational meeting Thursday at 6 p.m. to find out how many free college credit hours your son or daughter has already earned in high school for college.

  • I have heard a lot of people say, I have been too mean - God won’t forgive a person like me, or you don’t know about all of the bad things I have done, or if I accept Jesus as my Saviour I don’t know if I could stop doing the things I do today, I know I couldn’t give up drinking or smoking or the other bad things in my life. If things like this are running through your mind, the only place they are coming from is the devil. He is the author of lying and confusion.

  • A fish-out-of-water romantic comedy, “New In Town” stars Renee Zellwegger as Lucy Hill, a Miami businesswoman sent to the upper Midwest to overhaul and slash the work force at an underperforming junk-food factory.

    Career-minded Lucy isn’t prepared for the biting cold, the quaint small-town customs or the colorful characters she encounters—especially fireman Ted Mitchell (Harry Connick Jr.), who also happens to be the factory’s labor-union rep.

  • Two aquaculture workshops will be offered by Kentucky State University Cooperative Extension for those who are involved with or might be considering small-scale aquaculture.

  • Today I will write an article on tithing.

    One weekend we were in Nashville Tennessee and I was leading a small group in this church. We have some questions we ask the people. I ask the question what would you like to happen in your life this weekend?

    One elderly woman spoke up really quick and said I would like to win the lottery. When I looked at her and said, Really, she responded of course I would give God his part. It made me wonder what God’s part was.

    Now let’s take a look at what the Bible says.

  • One year ago

    • Taylorsville Lake Marina owner Javon Montgomery introduced a multi-phased improvement plan that could include additional parking, increased launching ramp space, additional courtesy docks, a wider access road, a closer overflow parking lot and a public beach. The plan was supported by Spencer County Fiscal Court with a resolution and forwarded to state officials.

    • Superintendent Chuck Adams announced he was forming a committee to look into the expansion of tuition-based preschool.

  •  Some of the best native American artifacts found in Spencer County have been collected in the Waterford area.

     It is possible that a mysterious find there could be the most incredible yet.

     There are several piles of rocks off Kentucky 44 that have Waterford residents wondering if they could mark the locations of Indian graves or be the result of farmers clearing rocks from fields.

  • The Kentucky 4-H Centennial is a momentous occasion for the organization that has made a positive, lasting impact on the lives of hundreds of thousands of the state’s youths over the years. To kick off a year of celebration, 4-H is planning a birthday bash. It will be Feb. 21 at the Hyatt Regency Lexington.

  • A word that has been common in headlines all over the nation this past year is hope. We live in a time when the future seems uncertain and people are searching for something for which to hope. Taking a look at the progression of modern science, the rise in advanced technology and the tremendous medical breakthroughs, it would appear that things are getting better and better all the time. But it only takes turning on the television or opening up the newspaper to recognize that the world is actually getting worse.

  • Kentucky horse owners experiencing a recent job loss may be eligible for assistance feeding their horses through the Kentucky Horse Council’s (KHC) Equine Safety Net program.

  • I know this is not going to be the most popular article I have written. During the holiday season as I looked at my table and saw so much I thought of all the people who did not have what I had. Even though I am not a rich man in terms of worldly things, I am rich in heavenly things – and that is much better.

    Now let’s take a look at what the bible says about the poor and the rich.

    Since its inception in 1909, the 4-H program in Kentucky has helped shape the state’s youth into productive, contributing members of society. Over the years, the organization has transformed to meet the needs of generations of young people.  As the 4-H program in Kentucky celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2009, now is a good time to reflect on the organization’s past accomplishments and plan for the future.

  • Agriculture Acting Under Secretary for Rural Development Douglas L. Faulkner announced recently that USDA is accepting applications for $45.8 million in loans and grants to support rural communities and spur economic development through the Rural Economic Development Loan and Grant program.

  • With input costs remaining high, farmers are looking for ways to make their money go further. Testing soil from fields now can prevent over fertilizing in the spring and potentially save money on input costs, said soil specialists with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.

    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.

  • 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.
