  • What a hen!

    It was a strange funeral. Just me, my husband Bud and a one-legged chicken.

    I was blubbering like a baby; Bud was punching at the rock-hard ground with a pair of post hole diggers and the chicken, wrapped in a soft towel and sprayed with ammonia to keep the neighbor's dog away, was going in the hole.

    My sweet little Crippie chicken died. She was the daughter of Russell Crow - who also survived various maladies before being mauled by a passing opossum - layer of many large brown eggs and a good companion.

    Twenty years ago, Asbury United Methodist Church could have held most of its services in one of its members' living rooms as the church rarely had more than 10 people at a service.

    Today, the church at 9600 New Columbia Road on the Adair-Taylor county line, is a thriving faith community of more than 220 members. Weekly attendance averages more than 100.

    And on Sunday, the church will host a special service that celebrates "105 years in ministry."

  • County takes comp rate on taxes

    Though some of the County's tax rates are increasing and others are decreasing, revenue is expected to remain the same.

    In the past, Taylor County Fiscal Court has each year approved a "compensating" tax rate, which means that the new tax rate is expected to bring in about the same amount of money as the previous year's rate.

    Magistrates agreed to do the same this year at Tuesday night's regular Fiscal Court meeting. The compensating rate does not require a public hearing.

  • Reeling 'em in

    Jacob Wilson was thrilled with his first catch of the day. He was not so thrilled at the prospect having to unhook the tiny bluegill and toss it back into Green River Lake. So, with his brother Joshua looking on, Jacob turns to his mother, Wilma, for the dirty work.

    Jacob and Joshua were two of about 25 kids who participated in the Green River Lake Kids' Fishing Derby Saturday at Green River Lake State Park.

    The turnout, 34 total, including adults, is about the norm, Park Ranger Larry Lemmon said. On average, about 35 to 40 people attend the annual event.
