  • Dr. Larry Jones,  associate dean for academic programs at the University of Kentucky’s College of Agriculture (left), and Mark Haney, president of Kentucky Farm Bureau (right), greeted Stetson Baird, of Taylorsville, and the 43 other high school students selected from around the state to attend the Institute for Future Agricultural Leaders (IFAL), sponsored by Kentucky Farm Bureau.

  • Pickling foods is one of the simplest methods of preserving the harvest, and has been practiced for centuries.

    Lora Cheek and her mother Mary Snider have been making pickles off and on since Cheek was a child. Until last summer, though, they had not canned together in 20 years.

     Patty Davis watched her mother make pickles on the counter when she was growing up. She used to make pickles with her mother-in-law, but does not make them much anymore.

  • Despite being surrounded by her new extended family in Mt. Eden, Linda Henson still gets lonely from time to time..

    For 20 years, she and husband Jim were a truck-driving team whose travels took them to nearly every state and throughout Canada.

    Their nomadic life on the road together came to a halt last October when they purchased what was originally the Mt. Eden Ruritan Club Fire Dept.

    It was the fulfillment of a long-time goal for the couple who reside on Murphy’s Lane in Spencer County.

  •  “I don’t like spiders and snakes…” are the lyrics to the catchy 1970s tune by singer Jim Stafford.  Although the song has little to do with wildlife, the sentiment holds true for many whose fear, when they cross paths with a common snake or spider, is real even when the perceived danger isn’t.  

  • For one Spencer County family, a recent mission trip to Guatemala was life-changing. Eleven-year-old Jalei Cox and her sister Makenna, 10, saw first-hand the level of poverty that exists in the world.

    “I definitely think God wanted us to go,” said Makenna, “so we could see how great we have it here.”

  • Wanda Barnes received her carrot cake recipe from her sister many years ago. “I’ve had it for so long,” she said.

    She usually makes the carrot cake at Easter because her brother-in-law asks for it. She does not make it as much as she would like because her husband loves the cake but is diabetic.

    Barnes recently fulfilled requests to bring her cake to the Waterford Homemakers annual picnic.

    While she usually makes it as a sheet cake, sometimes she makes the cake in individual pound cake pans. When she does, it cooks for about 30-40 minutes.

  • Just before the last presidential race, a fellow Christian and I were talking about our country. He said that he was afraid our country was at the point where we would choose evil over good. It seems we as a Christian nation elect evil leaders to lead us in the wrong direction. I think Jesus called them wolves in sheep’s clothing.

    Matthew 7:15-16 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

  • Brush Arbor meeting

  • The TES Chorus went to the Music in the Parks competition May 22 at Kings Island and came away with several awards.  They were awarded trophies for an “Excellent” rating,  for receiving 1st place overall in the elementary division, and also the “Esprit de Corps” award for being respectful and courteous to other performers as well as having the most school spirit. 

    Sara Bowman, an 8th grade student at SCMS,  also received an award for being such a wonderful student accompanist on one of our competition pieces.
