  • No matter what you celebrate during the month of December it likely involves some sort of gift giving. Manufacturers have made certain that our options are unlimited when it comes to giving to the gardener, but some gifts are more useful then others! Don’t waste your money on the cute but useless or the useful but cheap. Consider, instead, some of these items that are favorites among my serious gardening friends.

  • Most people love Christmas.  They love the bows and the boxes, they love the getting and giving of gifts.  Some people love the idea of the “Christmas Spirit,” when joy and goodwill invade our hearts.  Then there are people who love those Christmas movies, you know the ones where hard hearts melt, the sad find happiness again, and little puppies find homes.

  • Monroe’s Garage celebrated its opening at 307 Railroad St. in Taylorsville with members of the community recently. Those attending the ribbon-cutting ceremony were (from left) Annette King, executive director of the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority; Beverly Bentley-Ingram, City Commissioner; Mark Waldridge, Monroe’s; Mike Monroe, co-owner of Monroe’s Garage; Paul Monroe, co-owner of Monroe’s Garage, Doug Williams, Chamber of Commerce Treasurer/County Treasurer; and Phyllis Williams, Chamber of Commerce Executive Board Member.

  • When Mount Eden resident Belinda Sheeley and her husband returned home from dinner Friday evening in Taylorsville, it was as if a mail bag from the past had been spilled on their lawn.

    As Sheeley and her family scrambled to collect letters, cards and envelopes, it quickly became apparent that the pieces were more than just someone’s lost mail.

    They were mementos from a bygone era. Sheeley said most of the envelopes were stamped 1957 and some were addressed to places as far as Fargo, ND.

  • The Taylorsville square will be transformed into a magical winter wonderland this Saturday as the residents gather for the 2010 Christmas on Main Street festival.

    Planning Committee Chair Gordon Deapen said this year’s event was moved from Friday to Saturday to help accommodate more families, in hopes that anyone who couldn’t attend Friday evening could participate in the planned Saturday afternoon and evening events.

    “It just keeps getting better and better,” Deapen said at a committee planning meeting Monday afternoon.

  • On Sunday, Nov. 14, we went to a Russel Ray Fryman Day at Cynthiana. Russell Ray is one of our lay mission team members. What an inspiration he is. He would bring his guitar and sing, and he would get so happy he would preach a little too.

    My favorite song he would sing was, “I Feel Good.”

    The chorus went like this: “I feel good just to know I’ve been redeemed. It makes me feel good.”
