  • Sometimes I think I must be the least observant guy in America.  I recently gave a friend directions to our house, and when he arrived he said, “Why didn’t you just tell me to turn after the ‘Welcome to Taylorsville’ sign?”  There’s a sign?  How long has that been there?  My wife jumped in to agree that there is indeed a sign!  Naturally, the next time I drove in, there it was, big as life.  It’s actually a pretty nice sign; sorry I missed it all these years!

  • Chase Andrew Thomas and Steve Konnor Barlow were among 818 high school juniors from 47 high schools in Central Kentucky that were recognized at this year’s “Youth Salute”.  The 30th Annual Awards Ceremony was held May 2, at Georgetown College.  A top Youth Leader was named for each high school and Thomas was given that honor.

  • In August of 2003, Lora Cheek decided that she wanted to make a playhouse for her granddaughters, then three and seven, as a Christmas gift. She was recovering from broken ribs that she had sustained in a fall from a horse, and started brainstorming a way to accomplish her goal.

    She had an upstairs storage room that she was considering converting to another use. It occurred to her that if she turned the storage room into a playhouse, then the girls could use their playhouse year round, something they could not do if their playhouse was outside.

  • Long before children stepped into the classroom August 11, a select group of students were getting the help they needed to start their new year on the right foot.

  • Being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job.  However, for many different reasons moms may need to seek out other avenues that actually bring in some cash.  I am currently one of those moms.  Trying to find a job in this economy is tough.  Add to the fact that the hours I am available to work are after the kids have gone to school in the morning and only until they get out of school in the afternoon.  Oh, one more thing, I haven’t been employed outside the home in over twelve years.  Makes for a very interesting resume.

  • The Kentucky Department of Agriculture sponsored an Agricultural Field Day at Deutsch Farm  August 23 featuring the research that they have conducted on their farm on mum productions and the use of black plastic and drip irrigation. During the event, participants were taken on a hay ride to see the farm’s mum and vegetable crops, and hear speakers from the University of Kentucky. Dinner was catered by Barrel Smoked BBQ in Elk Creek.

    “We did a demo plot on growing mums for the University of Kentucky Agriculture Department,” said Sandi Deutsch.

  • Laurita Aubrey made her pasta salad for the first time the day that she served it at the August meeting of the Spencer County Garden Club. She created the recipe using ingredients she found in her kitchen.

    “I looked around, saw what I had and put it together,” said Aubrey.

    Aubrey is interested in simple food and simple methods of preparation. Cooking is not her favorite activity, so she prefers to spend little time working on it.

  • I was recently thinking about one of my best friends who had gone on to be with the Lord. His name was Wilson Shelburne. He was a God-fearing man. We would sit and talk about how great Jesus Christ is and often we would bring up Paul, Peter or some of the other people in the Bible.
