  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Is anyone listening?

    Is anyone listening? It is a question that often echoes in my head. God created one mouth and two ears on people, which I assume means we should spend twice as much time listening as we do talking. Unfortunately, even when we are not talking, many times we are not listening either. How many times have you formulated what you were going to say to someone as they were talking and waited with baited breath for them to finish so that you could put in your two cents? If I had two cents for every time I have done that I would be very wealthy.

  • PHOTOS: A lot of fuss over an extra "S"

    The start of school can be confusing, especially when traffic patterns are changed. But the Spencer County School District’s attempt to clarify directions for parents driving their kids to school only created chaos when buzz began over the sign at the middle school.

    Director of Operations Brett Beaverson said he intentionally spelled the plural word for bus two ways because that is how it is listed in the dictionary. Don’t believe it? Look it up yourself.
