  • Apples are currently in season and are easily used in recipes or eaten fresh. Several Spencer County cooks willingly shared their favorite ways to use this favorite fall fruit.

    Margaret Glasford, a member of the Waterford Homemakers, enjoys serving apples to her guests in a low calorie dish she found through Weight Watchers. Her preferred varieties are Gala and Cameos because she likes sweet and crunchy apples.

  • When the History Channel’s “American Pickers” come to town, traffic stops – at least it does when the town is Little Mount.

    “I had no idea the show was as popular as it is,” said Barbara Whitehead. But she quickly learned that the show’s hosts, Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz, can really draw a crowd. Barbara estimated 300 people stopped to watch the popular “Pickers” film a segment with her husband and avid collector Charlie Whitehead.

  • Anne Patton Schubert, Taylorsville,  has been elected as a delegate to the 127th Annual American Angus Association® Convention of Delegates, November 15 in Louisville,  reports Bryce Schumann, CEO of the American Angus Association.

    Representing 43 states and Canada, the delegates will participate in the business meeting and elect new officers and five directors.

  • Brenda Hagan found her recipe for green tomato bread in the fall issue of the magazine Acres USA: A Voice for Eco-Agriculture. Her husband subscribes to the magazine.

    “It’s unusual, different and fairly easy to make,” said Hagan, who lives in Bloomfield.

  • Taylorsville Lake annual

    clean sweep

    As the summer season draws to a close, it is time to clean up the leftovers of a long party.  The Taylorsville Lake Conservation Committee is sponsoring the event to be held Saturday, Sept. 25, beginning at 8 a.m.

    This year is a dual effort in that as groups tidy up the lake area, other groups are invited to participate in a riverbank walk, cleaning the bank of Salt River from the Claude Owens canoe ramp downstream to Simpson Creek.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • On September 28, I will be 81 years old – if I live that long. I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was 31 years old. This next year I will be celebrating my real birthday, which is when I was born again through the blood of Jesus Christ. In this rebirth, I will live forever. My natural birth will pass away, but in my rebirth, I will live forever.

    CHAPTER ONE

  • After all the protesting, the church responsible for heading up “International burn a Koran day” called it off – but not before capturing the attention of the entire world. By September 11, 2010, the intended date of the bonfire, the story of the small congregation in Gainesville, Florida to burn the Muslim holy book had become so objectionable that it no longer mattered if the actions were carried out or not. The damage that has been done is irreversible.

    Women’s Fall Bible study

  • 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!
