  • Brussel sprouts are making a comeback

    Brussels sprouts have made a comeback! It used to be that no one liked them and they were hard to come by fresh. Old varieties have been greatly improved from those forced on you as a child. Equally, updated cooking methods probably can stand some credit for elevating the previously mushy, bitter Barbie-doll-sized cabbage to a crispy, nutty treat!

    Last week marked something we have not seen perhaps ever.

    It’s been three years since Daniel Dale Cahoe was found murdered in a Spencer County barn, and family members say they’ll never stop searching for his killer.
    No arrests have been made since Daniel was killed in 2012, but family members are still hopeful someone will come forward.
