  • Sometimes I think I must be the least observant guy in America.  I recently gave a friend directions to our house, and when he arrived he said, “Why didn’t you just tell me to turn after the ‘Welcome to Taylorsville’ sign?”  There’s a sign?  How long has that been there?  My wife jumped in to agree that there is indeed a sign!  Naturally, the next time I drove in, there it was, big as life.  It’s actually a pretty nice sign; sorry I missed it all these years!

  • Chase Andrew Thomas and Steve Konnor Barlow were among 818 high school juniors from 47 high schools in Central Kentucky that were recognized at this year’s “Youth Salute”.  The 30th Annual Awards Ceremony was held May 2, at Georgetown College.  A top Youth Leader was named for each high school and Thomas was given that honor.

  • In August of 2003, Lora Cheek decided that she wanted to make a playhouse for her granddaughters, then three and seven, as a Christmas gift. She was recovering from broken ribs that she had sustained in a fall from a horse, and started brainstorming a way to accomplish her goal.

    She had an upstairs storage room that she was considering converting to another use. It occurred to her that if she turned the storage room into a playhouse, then the girls could use their playhouse year round, something they could not do if their playhouse was outside.

  • Long before children stepped into the classroom August 11, a select group of students were getting the help they needed to start their new year on the right foot.

  • Spencer County Middle School would like to announce their Grizzly Heroes for August. These students were chosen because they took a stand and lent a hand. Pictured are: Maddie Kapfhammer, Justin Goodlett, Bailea Bryant, Nicholas Fuller, Audrey Miller, Britney Chesser, Angel King, Shelby Hughes and Katie Smith (not pictured).

  • Being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job.  However, for many different reasons moms may need to seek out other avenues that actually bring in some cash.  I am currently one of those moms.  Trying to find a job in this economy is tough.  Add to the fact that the hours I am available to work are after the kids have gone to school in the morning and only until they get out of school in the afternoon.  Oh, one more thing, I haven’t been employed outside the home in over twelve years.  Makes for a very interesting resume.
