  • Riding for a cause


    Nearly twenty cyclists stopped in Taylorsville last Thursday afternoon as they continued on a 700 mile charity ride from Mississippi to Cincinnati as part of the Matthew and Andrew Akin  Foundation. The group is riding to raise awareness and money for research to help children who are suffering from  Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis, an immune deficiency disorder that often proves fatal.

  • Agriculture - Think about safety during fall harvest

    Fall harvest season is a busy time for Kentucky farmers and their families. It also is a peak season for agricultural injuries and an especially important time for farm families to pay attention to safety.

    Take time to talk to workers about safety. You need to be sure all workers are trained and physically capable of operating equipment and that they understand the safety procedures.

  • Agriculture - Growing trees from seed

    Some plants are prolific; some are not.  Dandelion seed floats through the air and disperses far and wide in spring or summer; hundreds of tiny seeds burst from the spent blooms of cleome as a sphinx moth feeds at dusk.   Woody plants can be a bit more elusive.  I have never seen a Serbian spruce spring forth from a fallen cone nor an apple tree emerge from rotten fruit beneath its canopy.  Starting woody plants from seed can be tricky.

  • Bears corral Mustangs, 21-13


    It wasn’t pretty, but the Spencer County Bears held on for a 21-13 victory over North Oldham Friday night, to improve to 6-1 on the season, and 2-0 in the district.

    Many may have expected a more lopsided score against the winless Mustangs, but North Oldham brought a pretty stingy defense to Taylorsville and the Bears managed to do just enough to make it a victorious homecoming night.
