  • Due to dry conditions, the majority of Kentucky livestock producers are already into their winter feeding programs which some began as early as September. Producers need to inventory their hay supplies now to ensure they have enough to last through the winter.

    If they find they’re short, buying additional hay now can save them a lot of headaches later, said Tom Keene, hay marketing specialist with the University of Kentucky College of Agriculture.

  • Spencer County native Carrie Wise was recently awarded one of two $1,000 mini-grants from the Kentucky Reading Association.

  • The Spencer County Public Library is hosting a food drive that is a win-win situation for those who owe late fees and for those who need food during these tough economic times.eeeeThe Food for Fines program is an effort by the library to collect nonperishable food items in exchange for fine amnesty.

  • Despite the efforts to save the Taylorsville Christmas tree, the summer bagworm infestation proved more than the young plant could handle. The tree was replaced with a new variety November 4 that was donated by Mike Driscoll. New grass placed around the tree was donated by Mason Valley Sod-Turf.

  • Madonna Cash got her recipe for scalloped potatoes from her daughter-in-law about two years ago. She usually takes it to potlucks rather than serve it at home because her husband does not care for olives. She recently served this dish at a potluck dinner meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild.

    Cash does not cook as much as she used to anymore now that her children are grown. Now she mostly makes cakes or cookies for her grandchildren whom she sees often. A particular favorite is her caramel cake.

  • Jim Riggs, of Fisherville, participated in a Veterans Day Celebration Saturday held by Guard Duty at Grace Chapel in Taylorsville.

The wreaths pictured above were presented in honor of military service men and women who lost their lives in battle.
