  • 17 years after 9-11, what feelings remain?

    September 11.
    It’s no longer just a date, it’s a historical marker and a summons to stop, think and remember what you saw, what you heard, and most importantly, what you felt that Tuesday morning when radical Islamic terrorists carried out a massive and deadly attack on the United States.
    In Kentucky, it was a beautiful September morning. Most of us were just starting our days and we might have heard word or caught a glimpse on the television news about a possible plane crash and fire at one of the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

    Their granddaughter has been missing for more than 7 months, and while a Spencer County couple still holds out hope that the teenage girl is safe, the uncertainty gnaws at them.
    “We would love to hear from her, even if she said she hated us,” said Ruth Augsberg.

  • Nothing like a good book

    What’s the best $2 you’ve spent recently?
    For me, it was picking up a copy of an old classic book at The Red Scooter about a month ago. I’d gone to talk to the owner about a story, and browsed a bit while waiting for her to finish with a customer. An old book caught my eye because of a familiar title – “The Little Shepherd of Kingdom Come.”

  • Apprentice program a win-win for students and schools

    Learning a trade by being an apprentice has been a practice spanning centuries. A young person would be taken under the wing of a skilled craftsman or tradesperson, and learn from the master. It was hands-on training with immediate feedback, correction and encouragement.
    How refreshing that apprenticeships seem to be making a comeback for young people. Spencer County Schools should be applauded for participating in this type of program.
