  • Farmers markets are flourishing.  According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture, more than 5,000 exist today. 

    We have a nice Farmers Market right here in Spencer County and it is opening up on April 24.  It will be held in the parking lot of the Sanctuary Arts Center in downtown Taylorsville.  It will be open from 8 a.m. until no later than noon on Saturdays and Wednesdays.  The first Wednesday market will be April 28.

  • Joyce Baxter has been scouring the Internet everyday for jobs since being laid off as a supervisor at American Greeting company last June.

    “I’m not getting any bites,” said the Cox’s Creek woman.

    After two years with the company earning an annual salary of $50,000, Baxter said the loss of employment has reduced her family income by half. Even with her husband taking extra shifts and picking up jobs on the side, it is not even close to what the couple was making before the layoff.

  • From the moment the model stepped on stage there was a buzz in the audience. The strapless, red gown shimmered as the young brunette glided under the spotlights. When she turned in small circles, the delicate beadwork glittered like stardust.

    “Let’s start the bidding at $2,” said Eleschia Murphy. “Okay, I have two, now do I have three?”

  • The only way Jan Milby of Fisherville ever learned to quilt was sitting at a long wooden quilt frame with her mother and grandmother. That’s how she learned as a child. She made her first quilt in 1990-91. It too her that long to hand-stitch it.

    For the past year, she’s been learning to machine quilt.

    “It’s much faster and so fun and rewarding,” she said. “I can quilt a wall and hanging in an afternoon. My goal is to receive a shower or wedding invitation and make a quilt by the time the event happens.”

  • Jesus was no more himself than when he hung on the cross as the Savior of the world.  The seven last sayings of Christ display seven portraits of the God-man.  Our view of Jesus would be incomplete had we not seen these very-different vistas of the Messiah.

    Forgiving Any Sin

    “Father, forgive them, for they know not what they do.” 

  • The Stars were shining brightly on Friday night at the FFA/Dance Team second annual Dancing with the Stars event. 

    Members of the community joined school and district personnel to put on a show that will have the community talking for quite a while. There were twenty one dance performances ranging from swing to hip-hop. The audience was treated to a head spinning Scott Williams, a Michael Jackson moon walking Chuck Adams and two tail-feather shaking Sheriff Steve Coulter and Kyle Bennett to name a few.

  • Members of First Baptist Church of Fisherville presented a living interpretation of Leonardo DaVinci’s painting “The Lord and His Twelve Disciples” Sunday night. As the men sat motionless, bathed in a warm yellow light, the choir sang hymns of praise. Before a packed sanctuary, each of the 12 disciples took turns exiting the “painting” to tell the audience about his personal relationship with Christ and their fears of being the one to betray God’s son. “Is it I?” each would ask.
