  • Commotion at city commission meeting

    What started as a full agenda for a special meeting of the Taylorsville City Commission, ended with little action and some name-calling last Tuesday night.

    Including agenda items to open the meeting and to adjourn into executive session, the commission originally had 12 items to discuss.

    However, a motion passed, by a 3-1 vote, to table seven of those items until Commissioner Larry Waldridge could be present. Waldridge was absent from Tuesday’s meeting.

  • Godman enjoys documenting life, and thinks you will, too!

    I have been interested in documenting my life since I was a young child. I believe it was my obsession with Laura Ingalls Wilder that made me want to preserve my memories for the future. I hoped that I could write about my childhood the way she wrote about hers.

    Is anger OK? When is it not OK? Well, that’s a good question but I’m not sure 1 can answer it! I can say, however, that anger appears to be “normal.”
