  • Avoid a P.C. Christmas

    Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer is no longer deemed appropriate television for children because it normalizes bullying, bad parenting and catagorizing people as outcasts. That’s the latest charge from the political correctness authorities.
    Meanwhile, at least one radio station has decided it will no longer play the winter song “Baby It’s Cold Outside,” because some knuckleheads think it’s a celebration of date rape. Really? Have they been paying attention to the sordid lyrics of what passes as popular music these days?

  • Work is good medicine

    Do you remember your first paycheck? I remember mine. It was $10 and I earned it as a young teenager for cutting lawns for a realtor in Winchester. I’d gotten cash before, but there was something about a paycheck that made it feel like more of an accomplishment.
    We complain about work, but work is good for us. Not only does it help put food on our table and provide the necessities of life, it gives us purpose, confidence and self-worth. Simply put – work is a healthy thing.

  • Tis the Season for giving

    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.
    Whether you’ve lived in Spencer County a short while or your entire life, you’ve probably come to recognize that this is a special community that cares for one another. Sure, there are exceptions, but as a community, we look out for each other, we care for each other, and we give like few other places.

  • Medicaid work requirement is revived

    Federal health officials have again approved Gov. Matt Bevin’s plan to revamp the state Medicaid program by introducing work requirements, premiums, co-payments and other changes for “able-bodied” members who weren’t covered until then-Gov. Steve Beshear expanded the program in 2014.

  • 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.

  • Sheriff vehicles in the way

    The area around the county building on Spears Drive now looks like a military motor pool. Sheriff Buddy Stump has brought many, if not most, of the military vehicles he’s stockpiled through the Department of Defense’s 1033 program to the area in the weeks leading up to his leaving office.
    However, the vehicles are now in the way of other county functions, such as the recycling center, and fiscal court discussed Monday night how and where to store them until more permanent plans about their use can be made.

  • Centuries of Thankfulness

    Nearly 400 years ago, the first Thanksgiving was celebrated when a small settlement of 50 Pilgrims invited about 90 Indians for a feast to celebrate the friendly ties among the two peoples, and to give thanks to God for helping the small settlement survive a very harsh winter as they prepared to endure the second.
