  • The family of Clyeda Hardin invites all friends to a 90th birthday celebration. The birthday party will be held in the fellowship hall of Elk Creek Baptist Church on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m. No gifts please.

  • I spent most of the day on Sunday in the vegetable garden. It was both a beautiful day and a melancholy one because of the 10th anniversary of September 11th. This helps me stay on task actually…quiet contemplation and physical work is a good combination. I was motivated to get the garden cleaned up and replanted with some fall crops like turnips, beets and lettuces. The remaining empty beds were planted with a cover crop.  

  • Crop prospects as of August 1 appear to be mostly good for Kentucky crops in 2011. Yields are projected to be above 2010 levels, according to the Kentucky Field Office of USDA’s National Agricultural Statistics Service.

  • Taylorsville Elementary School fifth graders participated in a special day to promote a positive, successful school year Aug. 19.

    The conference included teaching students about taking a stand against bullying, and how to have a bully-free school. The day was packed with activities designed to improve communication skills with peers, reduce incidences of relational aggression and help start the school year in a positive proactive way.

  • My son-in-law and daughter bought a church building and wanted Roberta and I to start a new church there. We did not want any part of that, and had all kind of excuses not to do it.
    The excuse that sounded the best was that we were too old to get into anything like that. I was 79 and Roberta was 76.
    You know that was old to start a church, but we could not convince God we were too old.
    One day our lay witness team came and we dedicated the church building to God. God was there and said, “You start a church here.”

  •  When I was young, my parents insisted that I take art lessons, and I guess they stuck.  Not that I am a great artist, but I really enjoy art of all kinds.  One of my favorite things to do is to wander around an arts and crafts show and see all the amazing things people create.

  • Abraham Lincoln had a connection to Spencer County that few people know about and although it may seem slight, we’ll take it.
