  • 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.

  • Family Night at Plum Creek Baptist

  • 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.

  • The Kentucky Department of Agriculture sponsored an Agricultural Field Day at Deutsch Farm  August 23 featuring the research that they have conducted on their farm on mum productions and the use of black plastic and drip irrigation. During the event, participants were taken on a hay ride to see the farm’s mum and vegetable crops, and hear speakers from the University of Kentucky. Dinner was catered by Barrel Smoked BBQ in Elk Creek.

    “We did a demo plot on growing mums for the University of Kentucky Agriculture Department,” said Sandi Deutsch.

  • Country Ham Breakfast

    Taylorsville Masonic Lodge #210 will be having an all-you-can-eat country ham breakfast from 7 a.m. until 11 a.m.  Saturday. The breakfast is $6 per person. Carry-out is available. Everyone is welcome.

  • Laurita Aubrey made her pasta salad for the first time the day that she served it at the August meeting of the Spencer County Garden Club. She created the recipe using ingredients she found in her kitchen.

    “I looked around, saw what I had and put it together,” said Aubrey.

    Aubrey is interested in simple food and simple methods of preparation. Cooking is not her favorite activity, so she prefers to spend little time working on it.
