  • 3rd Saturdays: When crafty people attend the Farmers Market

    Craft Day at the Taylorsville Farmers Market was started in 2009 with the idea, according to Farmers Market Chair Sandi Deutsch, of “bringing more interest and variety into the farmers market.”

    The market has grown since it began, but Deutsch is looking for ways to bring more people downtown for the market.

  • RECIPE: Bulf's Yellow Squash Casserole

    Donna Bulf has been making her yellow squash casserole for about six years. She does not remember where she got it.

    “It’s good and easy to make. It’s good if you have a potluck to go to,” said Bulf. She doubles the recipe when she is taking it to a potluck, like the Waterford Homemakers annual picnic where she took the squash casserole in June.

    She also makes squash casserole at home a lot. She will sometimes make an extra pan of it to send next door to her grandkids, who request that she make it, especially in the summer.

  • Cornhole King

    At 12 years old, it’s pretty impressive to be named world champion of almost anything and Spencer County’s own 12-year-old Derrick King can say that he is a world champion in the wildly popular game of Cornhole.

    Cornhole is a lawn game in which partners take turns tossing corn-filled bags at raised platforms with a hole in the end. Although rules differ from competition to competition, teams generally play to 21. A bag on the board is worth one point where a bag in the hole is worth three.

  • COLUMN: Dry those tears sports fans

    It was a trail of tears, last week.

    Randy Moss whined in Boston.

    Pete Rose bawled in Cincinnati.

    Bruce Pearl sniveling in Knoxville.

    Indiana media somberly noted, 10th anniversary of Douglas MacArthur’s firing by Harry Truman. Or was that Bob Knight by Myles Brand?

    Big Blue Nation was bellyaching about Enes Kanter’s amateur status.

    And, Lee Todd’s lips quivered in Lexington.

    Observations.

    Millionaire Moss’s whine isn’t worth elaboration.

  • First place Lady Bears about to be tested

    Just how good can the Spencer County Lady Bears soccer team really be? They’re sporting an 8-2 record, they sit atop the 8th Region standings and they are averaging over six goals a game.

    They likely got an answer to that question Tuesday night when they were scheduled to travel to Goshen to take on perennial power North Oldham, who is second in the region with an 8-2-1 record.

    Coach Charles Traughber’s girls were riding a 7 game winning streak which continued last Wednesday with a 10-0 victory over Ft. Knox on the road.
