  • Students from Spencer County’s elementary schools participated in the all-district choral event Oct. 8 at Spencer County Middle School. Students from Spencer, Shelby and Bullitt counties participated in all-day rehearsals, and their fans arrived for a 5 p.m. concert that featured a half-dozen songs of various sorts. The auditorium was packed to standing room only.

  • The Taylorsville Elementary School students of the month for September are Macy Nation, Bradley Teague, Dalton Mefford, Riley Collins-Shultz, Ashlyn Propheter and Lucas Maddox.

  • It seems that all the labor saving devices and fast food restaurants have only helped us exhaust ourselves. We get up earlier, go to bed later and run ourselves ragged in between.
    We get up and get the kids ready for school and then run off to work ourselves. Most jobs are doing more with less these days so if you are blessed to have a job, there is not much time for a coffee break.

  • We are living in a time in America when our leaders do not look at the word of God.
    2 Timothy 4:3 says, “For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they reap to themselves teachers, having itching ears.”
    Doesn’t this sound like some national politicians today? Each one tells us that they have the answer to bring us out of the depression we are in.

  • Melissa Iannuzzi and Chris Coyle, both of Taylorsville, announce their engagement and forthcoming marriage.

  • “Problem with hiring me?” I repeated, hoping I didn’t sound as shaky as I felt.

  • Halloween is right around the corner, so it is time to carve out a spooky plan for your celebration. Whip up this ghoulish graveyard goody for the kids (or the kids at heart) in your house.
