  • Annual Art Trail event next month to feature five galleries

     Lovers and supporters of the local art scene will be able to visit five local art galleries and studios during the 2017 Art Trail scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 4, organizers announced.

  • Cauliflower a healthy alternative

    It seems that every day something new hits the market in terms of food, diets, and even ways of eating. It’s confusing and often, overwhelming. Should you eat carbs? Should you juice? Is it better to eat whole grains? Does green tea really help to lose weight? How safe are the “magic bullet” shakes and supplements?

  • Healthy snacks for kids, adults

    I thought I would revisit some recipes from last year that really helped some folks give their kids healthy, easy snacks for school. I’ve added some more ideas for those who would like some “adult snacks” for the office.

    Hummus veggie wraps

    Small whole wheat wraps/tortillas

    Pepper strips,sliced thin

    Cucumber, sliced thin

    Carrot sticks, thin

    Hummus, any flavor

  • Cummins birth
  • Start the school year with quick, easy weeknight meal

    Whether you have school age children or not, the morning of the first day of school can be stressful. The traffic is heavier, you run the risk of getting stuck behind a school bus, and you’re cursing yourself for not leaving your house 15 minutes earlier. By Friday you’ll have the hang of it, but for now take a deep breath.

  • Breakfast smoothies you can prep ahead of time

    Next week is the beginning of another school year. For those of you with school age children, you know it’s both exciting and stressful. I’m already thinking about the morning struggle, what to pack for lunch, and the best way to get a 17 and a 6-year-old out of bed. Neither one likes to eat breakfast when they get up. I’ve read a bunch of articles on ways to make the rough mornings go smoother, and I think I’m going to try a few. Let’s hope the full moon on Monday is a positive influence.

  • Blueberry health benefits, storage, recipies to try

    I’m sure most of you knew it was National Ice Cream Day, but did you know it was National blueberry month also?

    This superfood is low in calories and incredibly healthy. Eating blueberries may benefit heart and brain health, as well as help regulate blood sugar levels.

    Blueberries are an excellent source of several vitamins, beneficial plant compounds and antioxidants. Several studies indicate that blueberries may lower blood sugar levels and improve insulin sensitivity.

  • Music, food, fine art, celebrity quests

    A night full of music, food and fine art will benefit the furry friends in life. Lawrenceburg’s Annual Garden Party is set for 6:30 to 9 p.m. Saturday and will host special celebrity guest Jon Carloftis.

    Hosted by Becky and Gene Wilhoit, 524 South Main Street, this marks the 10th year for this event and is the single largest fundraiser for the Anderson County Humane Society, according to Karen Tucker, the organization’s president. Anyone who wishes to attend can do so by registering on the humane society website.

  • Food samples, Easter recipes available during Business Expo

    This week is a very special week for me. Approximately one year ago, Ben Carlson came to my house and interviewed me about my new business and put me on the front page.

  • Harpists to perform March 28

    Anderson Community Education will present an “Evening of Harps,” with Jane Bennett and Sheila McFarland, local instrumentalists and members of the Heartland Harp Ensemble.

    The presentation is scheduled for 7 p.m. March 28 at the Anderson Senior Center, located at 160 Township Square, Lawrenceburg and will feature sacred, Celtic and popular tunes.

    Bennett is a native of Harrodsburg, but currently lives in Anderson County. She is a graduate of Transylvania University and received a master’s degree from Western Kentucky University in psychology.
