  • Will you cook a turkey for me?

    When I was in journalism school one of my first photo assignments was to take pictures of 10 strangers. The pictures consisted of people of all ages, including children.
    It was an extremely awkward assignment at the time, “Excuse me, ma’am, may I take a picture of your daughter?”

  • Rotational grazing proves successful in Anderson County

    This summer the Master Grazer Educational program conducted several demonstrations across Kentucky for producers to see best management practices in place, and the benefits they possess.

    One of these demonstrations was implemented in Anderson County by David Burge. He had always utilized a continuous grazing system but was looking for ways to improve his grazing management and maximize land utilization.

  • Sweet and sour turkey great for leftovers

    The holidays are quickly approaching, and with them, the season of great eating.

    Save the Thanksgiving leftovers to provide quick meals for your family. Store leftovers promptly and reheat completely to prevent foodborne illnesses. Follow these tips to ensure your leftovers are safe to eat:

    Refrigerate leftovers within two hours of the food sitting at room temperature. Bacteria grow best at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees F.

    It’s encouraging to see the tourism commission actually making some headway by hiring a paid executive director who will, ostensibly, make sure tourism is paid something aside from lip service.

    Pam Brough was hired for that job, which is similar to the one she already has as president of the chamber of commerce. She is obviously a solid choice for the position, but her selection does give one reason to pause.

  • A moment in the midst of real greatness

    I was in the midst of greatness last month. There is no question about that.

    Sports writing pays my bills and over the years I have been in venues ranging from quirky old high school gyms to locker rooms in the National Footall League and Major League Baseball.

    I have talked with the latest hot shot high school player all the way up to Hall of Famers.

    I’ve even gotten some chances to interview entertainers, politicians and business people. I’ve talked with those content to make a name locally and those who are known around the world.
