Today's Features

  • First of all, thank you for reading this.  And thanks to all of you who took the time this week to say hello and tell me you enjoyed my columns.  What a blessing when I meet someone for the first time or pass someone in the grocery store and they say, “Hey, aren’t you the guy that writes that column?” or, “I liked your column the other day.”  So thanks for reading and thanks for taking the time to talk to me about it.

  • Family Resource Center, located inside Spencer County Elementary School, helps families in need of clothing, food, affordable housing, paying bills and other necessities that can stand in the way of their children’s education.

  • Gerald and Amanda Washburn of Taylorsville welcomed their son, Nolan Trent Washburn, Feb. 3, 2011, at 11:30 a.m.
    Washburn was born at Baptist Hospital East, weighing 4 pounds, 15 ounces. He was 17 inches long.
    He was welcomed by his older brother, James Robert Hughes Jr. and by his grandparents, Earl and Shelley Lewis and Deanna Young Lewis of Wilsonville; and Gerald Washburn and Gwen Washburn, both of Taylorsville.

  • Lillie Anzalone of Taylorsville was honored on Feb. 6 with a surprise birthday party at Misty Valley Wedding Chapel given by her nieces, Sharon Daily and Hope Sedlock and her nephew, Doug Goodlett. Over 100 friends and relatives attended the celebration. Anzalone was 91.

  • Angie Leonard of Normandy Heights hosted a Mardi Gras themed birthday party for her husband and her son on Sunday, Feb. 27.  She chose this theme because it was seasonal and the products were easy to find, and because she thought a Mardi Gras party would be a novelty for her guests which included family and friends of all ages.

  • Did you ever see movies about the flying contraptions that were tried before the Wright Brothers came along?  Some looked like they would shake themselves apart; others looked like bird suits so people would crash as they flew off of cliffs.  That is an example of the hard truth and the danger of the soft lie.

  • Editor’s note: As the Spencer County Relay for Life approaches, the paper is going to be featuring submissions from local relayers. They are going to share their stories of why they have decided to participate in the annual Relay for Life.

    Every Relay For Life participant has their reasons to Relay.  I would like to share with you “my” reason I have chosen to Relay.  My name is Christy Weed.  I am the captain of the new Relay For Life team, Hotsy-Totsy.
