  • Being a stay-at-home mom is a full time job.  However, for many different reasons moms may need to seek out other avenues that actually bring in some cash.  I am currently one of those moms.  Trying to find a job in this economy is tough.  Add to the fact that the hours I am available to work are after the kids have gone to school in the morning and only until they get out of school in the afternoon.  Oh, one more thing, I haven’t been employed outside the home in over twelve years.  Makes for a very interesting resume.

  • The Kentucky Department of Agriculture sponsored an Agricultural Field Day at Deutsch Farm  August 23 featuring the research that they have conducted on their farm on mum productions and the use of black plastic and drip irrigation. During the event, participants were taken on a hay ride to see the farm’s mum and vegetable crops, and hear speakers from the University of Kentucky. Dinner was catered by Barrel Smoked BBQ in Elk Creek.

    “We did a demo plot on growing mums for the University of Kentucky Agriculture Department,” said Sandi Deutsch.

  • Laurita Aubrey made her pasta salad for the first time the day that she served it at the August meeting of the Spencer County Garden Club. She created the recipe using ingredients she found in her kitchen.

    “I looked around, saw what I had and put it together,” said Aubrey.

    Aubrey is interested in simple food and simple methods of preparation. Cooking is not her favorite activity, so she prefers to spend little time working on it.

  • I was recently thinking about one of my best friends who had gone on to be with the Lord. His name was Wilson Shelburne. He was a God-fearing man. We would sit and talk about how great Jesus Christ is and often we would bring up Paul, Peter or some of the other people in the Bible.

  • The Spencer County FFA had a banner year in the Kentucky State CDE competitions in 2010, taking first place in 9   state CDE events, a state record.

  • Rain did not dampen the spirits of the 35 riders who showed up for the first competitive trail ride held Saturday in Spencer County for the ACTHA group. 

    The ride was held on the Lipginski Farm, which is known as Whispering Oaks Farm of Kentucky and  located on Murray Road.  The event  attracted people as far away as Stanton, Kentucky and  Indianapolis, Indiana. It was a big hit for the variety of trails and obstacles along the 7 mile stretch of trails that wound through woods, open meadows and up and down hills.

  • Wanda Wilkerson got her recipe for Key Lime Cake from a friend in Florida. Wilkerson was visiting her friend late last winter, and the cake was served at lunch.

    Wilkerson likes the simplicity of this cake and said that it is especially easy because it does not have to have icing.
