    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.
