  • Help local Boy Scouts while enjoying some pizza

    “Troop 37, Lawrenceburg, Kentucky.”
    It’s an introduction that works anywhere in the world. Current and past scouters everywhere know it. Like a society in which only you know the handshake. It’s immediate and amazing.
    Meet any scout, anywhere. An instant connection.
    The program is the same throughout the world. The values taught— trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean, and reverent— are staples among Boy Scouts everywhere.
    They define a scout.

    With the digital world at your fingertips, you have a walking deal finder.
    All you have to do is punch into Google what kind of deals you are looking for and, like magic, they appear.

  • Why did God leave Heaven?

    Why did God leave Heaven? To seek and to save men Why was it necessary for God to leave the glories of Heaven, come to earth to be born of a teenage virgin, put on flesh, live a sinless, blameless life and walk among men for 30 years?
    Huge question, don’t you think?
    Let’s look to probably the best known passage of scripture for answers. John 3:16: “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”

  • Salads are easy, less time-consuming

    Some meals take hours or even days to prepare, while others only take a few minutes. But don’t let the length of time put in to cooking a meal fool you. Believe me, I’ve made things that took entirely too long to make that I was not impressed with and I’ve also whipped up a meal in 15 minutes that I would serve at a dinner party.
    Some of my favorite spring and summer meals are salads, that take only about 5 minutes to put together but when I’m done, I end up completely satisfied and very pleased with my easy, healthy meal decision.

  • A bad rap for county coroner

    Column as I see ’em …
    In roughly a decade of covering the Anderson County Fiscal Court, I’ve never seen an elected official as publically dressed down as Coroner Dr. Mark Tussey was during last Tuesday’s meeting.
    That’s saying a lot, too, considering the contentiousness that has reared its head during the past 10 years as magistrates have squabbled over any number of issues.

  • Fresh, frozen or canned, spinach is always a hit

    Spinach is a popular vegetable. It’s been on the American plate since the 1800s.
    Adding spinach to a sandwich instead of lettuce may be new for some people. However spinach is very versatile. It can be served fresh in salads and sandwiches and used fresh, frozen or canned in soups, dips, smoothies and pasta dishes. A quick side dish can be made by simply sautéing spinach and adding a little vinegar and grated Parmesan cheese.

  • Friday is potato planting day

    One of my favorite things about Daylight Savings Time is I sleep in until 6 a.m. Another is to be able to get some outside chores done after I get home from work this time of year. In another week I’ll be back up at 5 a.m. again, but I’m enjoying it while it lasts, even if it is only a mind prank.
