    Three weeks ago I listed several accomplishments in the city of Taylorsville over the past year.  I also made mention of our goals for the future.  However, there was one department I did not report; The city Police Department.  I felt this department needed some space of its own.

  • FAITH FOR TODAY: Dealing with discouragement

    Young children usually think their parents can do anything.  I guess that’s natural, but it can lead to some real disappointments.  You promise your kids a day at the park on Saturday, and you wake up to buckets of rain. So instead of a fun day at the park, you have disappointed and discouraged kids blaming you for the weather!

    As we grow up, we learn that our plans don’t always come to pass.  We learn that things don’t always go our way.  And yet we still can get just as discouraged and sulky as children on a rainy day.

  • SCHS presents 'Hey, Fella', an original musical comedy

    Spencer County High School will present the original musical comedy, “Hey, Fella” on Saturday at 7 p.m. in the school’s cafetorium.  The price of admission is $2.  The music for this Cinderella spin-off, written by 2003 SCHS graduate, Shane Fickel, has something for everyone.  Come see for yourself if Fella, with the help of Godfather and his associate Vinnie, will live happily ever after with Princess Charming or be destined to a life of servitude with Mother Stepp.
