  • It’s 5 o’clock somewhere

    It’s the peak of summer. The countdown begins to the first day of back-to-school shopping. Parents are thrilled and kids want to stretch each day out to put off the inevitable.

    It’s been a busy summer for me and we didn’t get away to some exotic place or even Tennessee. I’m a band mom so in just a few days, my middle child and I will have our summer come to an abrupt end. That doesn’t mean I can’t try to imagine beach sunsets from my back deck. How? Through food and fabulous cocktails, of course.

  • Adams-Chowning engagement

  • Reading the menu

    Judah Sebastian, 5, left, and Grace Schweighardt, 3, show off their library projects during the summer reading program last week. The two were excited to turn their assignments in.

  • Summer salads are a great way to ‘beat the heat’

    Hope you all had a happy and safe Fourth of July.

    It’s been hot, and it’s about to get hotter. Just the thought of turning on the grill, let alone the furnace (also known as the oven), on a hot day makes us sweat.

    The temptation to eat out, order take-out or just skip dinner altogether is enormous.

  • Browns have annual reunion

    The family of the late William B. Brown had its annual family reunion June 25 at Fairview Christian Church.

  • Be a hit at this year’s cookout

    The Fourth of July is almost here and you’ve likely been invited to someone’s house for a cookout.

    You’re probably thinking of something to bring, but you don’t want to be that person with the tray of sliced watermelon, or the sheet cake decorated with blueberries and strawberries in a flag pattern. You want to do something different, be creative, wow them.

  • Births

    Mason Alexander and Aiden Michael Scott were born June 23, 2016, at 8:26 a.m. at Norton Women’s Hospital in Louisville.

    Mason weighed 3 lbs 15 oz and measured 16 inches long at birth. Aiden weighed 3 lbs 9 oz and measured 16 inches long at birth.

    They are the grandsons of Mike and Vicky Barch of Lawrenceburg, and Al and Roseanne Scott of Niles, Michigan.

    They are the great-grandsons of Sandra Scott of Largo, Florida, and the late Clyde Scott, Anthony and Delores Sergio.

  • Soup makes a great summertime meal

    When we think of soup we think of cold winter nights. A big pot of chili simmering for hours on the stove or maybe gallons of chicken noodle to “cure what ails ya.”

    For hundreds of years, people around the world eat certain soups in the summer to cool down and replenish nutrients zapped away by the summer heat.

    Some soups are cold like gazpacho and melon soup, others are served warm or room temperature like summer minestrone.

  • You, too, can become ‘King of the Grill’

    My dad was not always “king of the grill.” My brother and I endured many years of waiting patiently for the coals to turn gray, only to receive the charred remains of a once perfect handmade hamburger. We referred to these masterpieces as “hockey pucks.“ Hot dogs, bratwurst, steaks, all suffered the same fate.

    Apparently several years, and moving to Florida have improved his grill skills. No longer do I hear “Taps” being played in the background when my Dad says dinner is ready.
