    It’s fitting that Thanksgiving ushers in the holiday season. What better way to prepare our hearts for Christmas than to pause, reflect and offer up thanks for all of our own blessings. Being grateful is a prelude to being generous.

  • Subjects of July 4th manhunt are indicted

    A Bloomfield couple who fled from police in Mt. Washington on July 4th, resulting in a chase into Spencer County and a subsequent manhunt involving several agencies, were indicted recently on multiple charges by a Spencer County Grand Jury.
    David A. Bryant, 33, and Jessica C. Danner, 30, were wanted in connection with a stolen car and made their way into Spencer County. They eventually dumped the car in a field off Van Dyke Road and fled on foot. Several hours later, after allegedly changing clothes, they were eventually arrested after a short foot pursuit on Spears Drive.

  • Keep elections honest

    Believe it or not, votes are still being counted in Florida. Of course, the fear is, that votes are still being found, and perhaps still being cast.
    Nearly two decades ago, America was caught up in an election drama after the presidential election between George W. Bush and Al Gore hung in the balance by hanging chads and other electoral day chaos in the Sunshine State.
    It took lawsuits, recounts, judicial intervention and a lot of patience on behalf of an anxious nation to eventually resolve the matter.
    These things should never happen.

  • Spencer County knows how to honor veterans

    When you put several hundred middle schoolers inside a crowded gym, you would expect the noise to be deafening. But as a lone trumpeter played taps Friday morning to honor fallen veterans, there was not a peep, shuffle or whisper to be heard at Spencer County Middle School. It’s called respect and it was on full display this weekend at various Veterans Day events across the county.
