    I am a sucker for a good country living/small-scale farming/local-eating memoir (any and all of the above). I grew up in the country.

  • Stallions go 3-0 against Lyndon Lightning

    It was definitely football weather when the Mighty Mites (ages 5-7) took to the field on a cool morning Saturday.
    The Stallions got off to an unusually slow defensive start allowing Lyndon to score early in the first quarter. But it was all Spencer County from there.
