  • COLUMN: Jesus came to set you free

    Listen to these words from the gospel of Luke, chapter 4 verses 14-21:

  • COLUMN: ‘Give us today our daily bread’

    The other day I had lunch at a restaurant that brings warm rolls to the table. It was a chilly, rainy sort of day and those rolls were what we needed. There is something about warm, fresh bread that is not only delicious, but comforting as well. Add a little soft butter soaking in and it just gets even better.

  • COLUMN: As the spring season approaches, make sure to prune correctly

    As spring approaches, many homeowners begin to think about their yard’s landscape. The winter months can be damaging to trees and shrubs. To ensure healthy spring plants, homeowners may want to prune the trees and shrubs around their home. But do not just prune for the sake of pruning, make sure you have a valid reason for pruning before you begin.
    Pruning during the late winter months allows for the removal of damage caused by winter winds and precipitation. The wounds caused by pruning heal most quickly this time of year just as new growth is emerging on the plant.

  • COLUMN: Don’t forget about that food you worked so hard to preserve

    Perhaps this can be a reminder of the payoff of “putting up” the garden in spring, summer and fall: We have extended our homegrown eating pleasure into the winter months with some basic preservation methods. If you froze, dried, canned or otherwise preserved fresh fruits and vegetables in 2012 do not forget about them (or horde them for some unreasonable time.)

  • County could be interested in supporting school resource officer

    The Spencer County Fiscal Court will ask Superintendent Chuck Adams and the Spencer County Board of Education if they are interested in partnering to fund a school resource officer from the Spencer County Sheriff’s Department.
    The Fiscal Court voted 5-1 Monday morning to voluntarily enter into discussions with the school district.

  • Eminent domain?

    Despite more than four years of discussions and searching for land to accommodate a new elementary school, Spencer County Public Schools is running out of options and time, leaving the unanswered question of if the district will be forced to resort to eminent domain to acquire property.
