Public comment turned out to be livelier than normal during the Board of Supervisors’ Oct. 7 meeting, with supervisors sparring with a candidate, and a concerned citizen taking on the Forest Service.

What do you get for a 100-year-old cash register on its birthday? Cash would seem the obvious answer. However, at the party Kelly Tan and her family have planned for their centennial register, at Young’s Market in Taylorsville on Saturday, Oct. 18, she thinks cake will suffice.

That’s why she’s holding a cake contest, along with many other activities, for anyone who wishes to attend.

The party will be from 1 to 5 p.m. There will be free food and beverages; samples of fine cheeses; live music; and homemade, nitrate-free barbecued sausage — free-range chicken will also go on the barbecue.
