  • This time of the year we usually start to think about cleaning off the front porch, emptying containers of declining summer annuals and replacing them with something a little showy for the fall. We hope that the old standby of mums will persist through the onset of winter but that depends on the weather and the shape the mums were in when we purchased them. I have seen some that still look largely intact and others that are ready to be pulled.

  • The 10th annual Holiday Bazaar held at All Saints Catholic Church was chockful of vendors with a variety of handcrafted items. Vendor Debbie Nall assists customer Judy Walters who is making a decision on which birdhouse to purchase for her feathered friends.

  • Once upon a time the Christmas buying season began after Thanksgiving, and that seemed to work out for everybody. Then it began to seep over into November, earlier and earlier, and now we barely get past Halloween before the Christmas sales start.
    And then, this year, it seems that Thanksgiving day itself was sacrificed. Perhaps this began a year or two ago and I simply didn’t notice, but now it is hard to miss. It seems that every major chain of stores now starts “Black Friday” on Thursday.

  • Risen Lord Church steeple returns
    Risen Lord Lutheran Church’s steeple has returned to Taylorsville. This steeple has had quite a journey from its beginnings in Campbellsville to its first home in Fairfax County, Va., then to Risen Lord Lutheran in Taylorsville and back to Campbellsville for repairs and returning just in time for the 2012 Christmas Tour.

  • Dear Savvy Senior,
    What can you tell me about longevity annuities? I come from a family with long life expectancies and I would like to protect myself from running out of money in my old age. Looking Ahead

    Dear Looking
    If you’re worried about outliving your retirement savings, longevity annuities are definitely an option worth looking into.

  • It seems that the tradition of turkey on the day we refer to as Thanksgiving Day will be here forever. I noticed this week at Country Mart in Taylorsville (my favorite place to shop) the huge display of “gobblers” from small to large, just in time to have our mouths water at the soon-to-be experience of that aroma that beats all other aromas ... roasted turkey.
    But with all the opportunities to have our taste buds stimulated, let’s now turn our attention to the topic: “what are you thankful for, not just on Thanksgiving Day, but every day?”

  • Last week, I shared a recipe for pumpkin whoopie pies, which I discovered through a search on Pinterest, an online visual search tool. When I was looking around Pinterest for pumpkin whoopie pie recipes, I found another recipe for cookies made with pumpkin that I decided I had to try: snickerdoodle and pumpkin cream cheese sandwiches. Since I did not use the entire can of pumpkin for the whoopie pies, I had just enough left to make half of a batch of pumpkin cream cheese.

  • The Campbellsville University Concert Chorus will present part one of Mendelssohn’s “Elijah” on Tuesday, Nov. 27 at 8 p.m. in the sanctuary of Campbellsville Baptist Church, located at 530 North Central Avenue, Campbellsville.
    Chelsey Robinson, a freshman from Taylorsville, will perform singing soprano with Campbellsville University’s Concert Chorus.
    “Elijah” is a major oratorio by Mendelssohn that tells the story of the biblical character, Elijah, in various historical settings.
