  •  The decision to save the Ashes Creek School and Yates (or Meyers) House log cabin from destruction when Taylorsville Lake was being formed was truly a wise one.

    “Ashes Creek” is indeed a creek, but it has always been considered a place like Briar Ridge, Possum Ridge or Hickory Ridge.

    Records of the Spencer County Board of Education list the boundaries of the Ashes Creek School District in 1930. Here’s what they say: (punctuation per original school board document)

  • ROBIN BASS/The Spencer Magnet

     During a recent visit to Taylorsville, U.S. Congressman Brett Guthrie received a drawing made by Spencer County fourth grader Jaden Cannon. The drawing showed the congressman and Jaden holding hands with the words, “Thank you.” Jaden and her mom, Debbie Cannon, were grateful for the efforts Guthrie has provided to the fight against juvenile diabetes and new research technologies. Guthrie also used his time in Taylorsville to talk to local leaders about the issues Congress will be facing in the coming months.

  • Taylorsville (TES) and Spencer County Elementary schools (SCES) were awarded the 2010 Waste Tire Market Development Crumb Rubber Grant under the guidance of District Grant Writer Ashley Johnson.

    The grant, totaling approximately $20,000 replaces existing wood chip mulch in the elementary playgrounds with recycled crumb rubber. The new mulch is resistant to deterioration and compaction. The recycled crumb rubber will provide a more safe and consistent landing surface for students playing on the equipment.

  • The Loyal Homemakers group, which meets on the second Thursday of each month, is a source of friendship and education for its members. Edith Judd, a Loyal Homemakers member for over ten years, says that people assume the clubs are for homebodies.

    “People think if you’re a homemaker, then you’re home cleaning house,” she said. “People think you don’t do anything.”

  • The Spencer County Middle School band and mixed chorus both placed 3rd among 7 groups in each of their divisions at the Music in the Parks competition. The 6th grade chorus placed 2nd and the choral small ensemble placed 1st.

     Spencer County also won the “Esprit de Corps” award which stands for the integrity of the groups from the moment they step off the bus to perform until the awards ceremony.

  • In our world today, we see many people worship false gods. Some worship money, some statues made of wood, gold, silver and many other things. Some call on other people who are dear and in the grave.

    America was founded by our forefathers for two main reasons. One was to worship Jesus, the other was to get out of paying high taxes. When Columbus landed here, he made this statement, “I knew we would find it because we followed the Holy Spirit.”

    Now let’s look at our country today.
