  • 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.

    Pepper strips,sliced thin

    Cucumber, sliced thin

    Carrot sticks, thin

    A home demonstration program was started in Anderson County. Helen L. Morgan was the agent and the program was to include 4-H Club work and adult work.

  • St. Lawrence plan

     inaugural Festival

    St. Lawrence Catholic Church announced its inaugural St Lawrence Festival in celebration of the St. Lawrence love of the people.

    The festival will be held Aug. 20 from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

    Come celebrate with food, music, inflatables, crafts, children’s games, competitive corn hole games, talent show, play of the St. Lawrence Story, and homemade ice cream.

    There will be a fee for food items, although music and games are free.

  • I have always been amazed at John’s explanation and description of Jesus in the opening verses of John’s gospel. Chapter I:1-4: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it.”

  • 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.

  • There is a great story about a man that had many sheep. His sheep were thriving and healthy except for one big problem. His property was also occupied by many coyotes that had developed a taste for sheep.

    Now the man thought of all his options. He could get a gun and kill the coyotes. This would help the sheep, but not so good for the coyotes. He could trap the coyotes, and put them in cages, but that wouldn’t change the coyotes. They would just be trapped and at the first opportunity if released, they are going for some lamb chops.

  • 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.
