  • ROBIN BASS/The Spencer Magnet

    About 85 Taylorsville Elementary students participated in a Colonial Living Museum last week as part of Teacher Jenny O’Donnell’s social studies class. The fifth graders were each assigned a colonial trade and were responsible for designing their “store” or “office” , and bringing in artifacts that went along with their trade. They also wrote a short script to say to the visitors of their booth.

  • Lately, I have been reading through Mark and reflecting on sermons delivered during a recent revival.  It is amazing how the theme of unity in Christ keeps popping up.

    In Mark 3 Jesus says, “If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. If a house is divided against itself, that house cannot stand.”

    How divided we are sometimes. 

  • There’s no doubt October 2009 was a soggy month most agricultural producers would rather forget. The record rainfall made everything more complicated. From delayed harvests to tobacco curing problems, farmers were soaked to the bone. When the month finally ended and the numbers came together, it was official – it was the third wettest October on record for the state and the wettest for western parts of the state.

  • Spencer County Middle and High Schools present Arthur Miller’s ‘The Crucible’.  There are about 50 students involved in this production both onstage and backstage.  Arthur Miller’s classic play about the witch-hunts and trials in 17th century Salem is a searing portrait of a community engulfed by hysteria. In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s most basic fears and suspicions.

  • 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.

  • Chapter 8

  • At our Lay Witness Mission retreat his year, the theme song was “Victory In Jesus”. What a great song.

    More than the song, just think, we have victory in Jesus over all the sins of this world.

  • The Spencer County Cooperative Extension Service will be sponsoring some upcoming meetings that may be of interest to you.

    On Wednesday, November 4, I will be hosting an Internet Marketing training.  During this meeting, we’ll discuss how to purchase a domain name, how to host your website, and we will even show you how to set up an online store. 

  • The wet/dry vote in Spencer County was a big talk around town over the past few months; and who could blame us?  The vote to make the county wet (or keep it dry) was one of the biggest controversies in the recent history of our region.
