  • Over 200 guests patroned the second annual Progressive Dinner held Saturday, Sept. 25. Businesses along Taylorsville’s Main Street provided appetizers, soup, salad, dinner and dessert.

  • The third “Business Networking Afterhours” event was held by the Chamber of Commerce Sept. 14.

    This is a quarterly networking event the chamber has implemented.

    Bruce Deigl, owner of Taylorsville Machining LLC, and his wife Jan hosted the event.

    Chamber members said the event is a great way for business leaders to come together and network in a relaxed atmosphere without a structured program.

  • The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Association hosted Taylorsville Lake Clean Sweep Saturday.

    Over 200 participants hauled more than 47 cubic yards of garbage from the lake, and 15 from the river. Items included barrels and over 35 tires. Scouting troops from Louisville also participated again this year. This is the 12th annual clean up.

    Groups were also on the river this year, as far down stream as Bowman Lane. Canoe clubs from around the state converged on this area and were celebrating their efforts with a camp out on the river that night.

  • Adina Milburn’s craft room is a source of joy and stress relief for her.

    “I can be having the worst day, and I can come in here, work on a scrapbook and it helps me out,” said Milburn.

    Milburn moved her craft room from the basement to a dedicated space on the first floor about five years ago. She has been scrapbooking for eighteen years.

    “I started scrapbooking when the kids were real young,” said Milburn. She has two sons who are now seventeen and twenty.

  • Maintaining the proper pH and fertility in soil is important for higher crop yields. An important tool to assess fertility levels is to sample soil and have it tested. Kentucky is experiencing an unusually dry fall.

    Soil samples taken during dry falls tend to result in soil pH and soil test K being unusually low. This results in recommendations that overestimate lime and K fertilizer that may be needed.

  • Representatives from Trim Masters Charitable Foundation, Inc. were on the receiving end of happy handshakes, and even a couple of hugs, as they presented Spencer County Habitat for Humanity with a check for $10,000 Monday afternoon.

    “What a wonderful gift!” said Scott Street, president of the local Habitat affiliate, calling the donation an answer to their prayers.

    “Woody,” Mom asked, “Do you think the oars are necessary?”

  • Apples are currently in season and are easily used in recipes or eaten fresh. Several Spencer County cooks willingly shared their favorite ways to use this favorite fall fruit.

    Margaret Glasford, a member of the Waterford Homemakers, enjoys serving apples to her guests in a low calorie dish she found through Weight Watchers. Her preferred varieties are Gala and Cameos because she likes sweet and crunchy apples.
