  • IN THE WORD: Last days

    As we look at Matthew 13 we see Jesus telling us in parables about the Kingdom of Heaven and what will happen in the last days.

    Matthew 13:41-52 – The Son of man shall send forth his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all things that offend, and them which do iniquity; And shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth.

  • Yard sale advice

    Yard sales are a time-honored tradition, but it can be difficult to know how to get started when having your own. The best way may be to ask others who have had their own yard sales.

    Mary Ealey, who has had three yard sales at her current home in Spencer County, says that she averages between $200 and $300 over her two day sales and finds that she sells more on Fridays.

    Natalie Bednark, another experienced yard seller, said she has better luck on Saturdays.

    Ealey finds that children’s items, such as toys and baby items, sell better for her.

  • Ideas run rampant at Camp Invention

    Students from grades one to six were given the opportunity to let their imaginations run amok in the classrooms and hallways of Taylorsville Elementary School last week.

    Seventy children from SCES, TES, SCMS, and several neighboring private schools, met last Monday morning ready to begin an exciting five-day program called Camp Invention.

  • LETTER: Pool service complaint

    We have had a swimming pool for about eight years. Every year, I have driven to a pool company many miles away.

    When I read that Taylorsville had a new pool company, I thought, “Great. Right down the road, close to home and we can keep our money in the area.”

    Two weeks before Derby Day, I went to Taylorsville Pool and talked with Jim Kannapel, the owner.

    We talked for about a half hour about various new products and such.

  • CUB names interim CEO, cuts jobs

    Six months after Citizens Union Bank came under investigation by the state and federal regulators because of a series of problem loans, bank officials say they have made a number of changes, including hiring an interim CEO and eliminating about 10 jobs.

    Darryl Traylor is the interim CEO and comes from First Farmers Bank in Owenton, a sister organization, where he served as president for seven years.

  • For the love of the game

     He’s often the most hated man in the park. The one that hears the most boo’s, catches the most grief, and receives the most scorn. Moms think he’s harsh, Dads think he’s biased and coaches think he’s blind.

    Even when the temperatures approach triple digits, he’s there in full gear ready for the next game as the players from the previous contest are enjoying a cool treat at the local Dairy Queen.

    He’s the Little League umpire and despite it all, he loves his job. Why?

  • New website offers a full menu of options

    Before you pick a restaurant, do you have to discuss menu options for picky eaters?

    Maybe one child will only eat macaroni and cheese, and the other must have a hamburger – no mustard or pickles, ketchup only.

    If you have a finicky bunch, then having several menus in front of you before you go could certainly alleviate problems down the road.

    In comes LotsaMenus.com.

    The brainchild of Jerry Colvin and Scott Clarke, this new Web site aims to provide its visitors with menus of all the state’s restaurants.
