  • The other night there were storms all around.  Heavy winds blew, and rain fell for a while, and then it seemed to get all calm.  My wife and I went outside to let our dog do her business and were amazed at all the lightening flashing.


    Cattle owned by Anne Patton Schubert of Taylorsville won awards June 10 at the 2016 Kentucky Angus Association Preview Show in Louisville.

  • The intestinal tracts of all mammals have various types of bacteria as part of their natural intestinal microflora. There are many opportunities for young children to be exposed to these bacteria, such as pets, friends, etc. Our state’s most recent salmonella outbreak is a harsh reminder of this, as many of the victims are children.

  • We have spent over 10 years improving our vegetable garden by adding composted horse manure, composted sheep manure and composted chicken manure at the end of each season. The result is a seriously well-drained plot that has the capacity to retain moisture and slowly feed what we plant. I am so looking forward to the vegetable garden this year, because last year was such a disappointment.

    VBS at Plum Creek Baptist

  • Ever since I can remember I have hated brussel sprouts. I remember my mom serving them from time to time, and I always had to eat at least one. And one was always about 15 too many for me.

    Anyway, I cannot ever remember voluntarily eating a brussel sprout. As an adult I have never tossed any fresh frozen brussel sprouts in my grocery cart or even tried them at a potluck. I apologize to those of you who love brussel sprouts, but they are just not for me.
