    Farmers Market meeting

    The Spencer County Farmers Market Committee will be holding a planning meeting on Thursday, beginning at 6 p.m. They would like all of those who have previously sold or are interested in selling to attend. They will be discussing the previous selling season and begin planning the 2018 season. It will be held at the Spencer Co. Extension Office.

  • Skunks are now on the move

    It is that time of year again, and I am reminded because of the smell and road kill left behind. Plus, a strong scent of skunk has been lingering in the pasture this past week. And, I got an Instagram video from my niece as she was clearly backing away from a lumbering black and white rodent down by the river!  
    We used to get them circling the house on winter evenings, but our livestock guardian dogs’ presence has kept them at bay the last few years.  Their presence is not surprising, however, because it is mating season for skunks and they are on the move.
