    Hello friends and neighbors, I hope all is well with everyone.

    FAREWELL. The Stephensburg Volunteer Fire Department hosted a dinner in April for the Spencers as a way to say thank you for the years the family owned and operated Spencer’s Market here in Stephensburg.

    For as long as I can remember, there has been a grocery here. The first one I remember was operated by the Pirtles. The Spencers took over for the Terry family and eventually moved to the location on U.S. 62 where the building is now.

  • When I was younger, before I knew the ins and outs and all the weird, difficult things that went along with parenthood, I always said I wanted four children.

    I wanted to hear all the laughter and the giggling and I wanted to see a passel of children, my children, riding bikes together or kicking a soccer ball or making mud pies. Apparently, in my mind, kids only existed outside.

    My husband, on the other hand, only wanted two kids. We decided to compromise and settled on three.
