    Lilli Hanik, of Fisherville, received the Gold Honors Award at 4-H Teen Conference this past June at the University of Kentucky in Lexington.  She is the daughter of John and Kim Hanik and is a Senior at Spencer County High School. Lilli was selected, through an application and interview process, as one of the delegates that represented Kentucky at the National 4-H Congress November 25 – November 29 in Atlanta, Georgia.

  • Now that we are in December, everyone’s thoughts turn toward the holidays.  Each year, I like to pass along the following tips and information about the most popular plant of the holiday season, the poinsettia.

    Traditional red and green colors are well represented in the flowers available for the holidays. Poinsettias, the most popular and spectacular holiday flowers, can combine both these colors.

  • Last Sunday I felt like I was under siege! There were starlings everywhere; so much so that I feared being splattered with poop at every turn.  The surprising thing about starlings is that they are everywhere, yet not from here.  It’s another story of one good intention going bad. Apparently, back in 1890, in honor of a Shakespeare festival in New York City’s Central Park, sixty European starlings were released.  The following year another forty were released and today the bird is one of the most numerous species in North America.

    Singers, musicians and others representing numerous churches in Spencer County, joined their talents this weekend to present the annual Tree of Life at Taylorsville First Baptist Church.

    The annual event, directed again this year by Joy Thompson, brings volunteers from various churches together to share the Christmas story in song. The church was packed for several shows all weekend, with Sunday evening’s 8 p.m. final performance attracting a standing room only crowd with spectators from all around.

  • Mid-Week Advent services at Risen Lord Lutheran Church

    Risen Lord Lutheran Church is having a mid-week advent service on Wednesdays starting at 7 p.m. with a soup supper prior to the service starting at 6 p.m. Risen Lord Lutheran is located at 5138 Taylorsville Road, Taylorsville.  If you have any questions, please contact the church at 477-6557.

  • Tickets now on sale for annual Community Tree of Life

    Tickets are on sale for the annual “Community Tree of Life” Christmas musical presentation which depicts the Biblical story of  the birth and life of Christ.

  • I know it isn’t even December yet, but do you feel it?  The holiday season is upon us in full strength.  Some TV networks are running Christmas programming 24 hours a day.  The stores have had trees and decorations up since before Halloween.  I’m exhausted already.

    Volunteers from at least six different churches took part in serving the Community Thanksgiving Meal on Wednesday evening at Taylorsville Community Church. The free meal featured turkey and all the trimmings and was an outreach effort by the area churches.

  • The holiday season is well under way. Many of you enjoyed a bountiful Thanksgiving feast with your loved ones and will do so again during Christmas and New Year’s Day.

  • It is hard to believe that the holiday season is upon us. I have family visiting for Christmas, so this means a bigger tree than normal; if you are going to travel to come see us, this is the least I can do. Plus, it is fun to find the “perfect” tree that fits your space and holds precious ornaments with style.
