    OUTREACH PROGRAM

  • By Don Powell, Gideon’s

    Christmas is a Christian holiday honoring the birth of Jesus Christ.
    Traditionally, we celebrate Christmas on Dec. 25 around the world. No one knows for sure the correct date of Jesus’ birth, so we celebrate on Dec. 25.
    Some say that the early Christians in Rome picked this date to counter the Roman holiday celebration of the Winter Soltice.

  • It seems the older I get, the less space I have in my brain, like all the file folders in the filing cabinet are full.
    More often than I care to admit, I’ll write myself a quick note intending to develop it into a column later, but when later comes I’ll have no clue what I was thinking when I wrote the note.
    However, all is not hopeless, as occasionally I go through my folder of assorted notes and cobble together a column of bits and pieces and random musings in the hope that something might be helpful to someone.

  • This fudge recipe uses marshmallows as an easy cheat in place of more elaborate candy-making.
    Have your lined baking pan ready to go before you start and work fast once you remove the saucepan from the heat. As the fudge starts to cool, it can become difficult work with.
    Ingredients
    1/2 cup whole milk
    6 regular-sized marshmallows (NOT mini or jumbo marshmallows, certified gluten-free if needed)
    3/4 cup (150 g) white granulated sugar
    3/4 cup (165 g) packed light brown sugar
    2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Live gifts during the holiday season are welcomed by gardeners … a poinsettia or two, a rosemary topiary, cyclamen, African violets and orchids give us something to fuss over during the winter months. But, sometimes our homes can be a hostile environment for many of the most popular indoor flowering plants.  
    Light levels, low humidity or a missed watering or two can turn a pretty plant ugly in no time.   

  • Amassing a good set of gardening tools usually takes a while and the holiday season, with various traditions of gift giving, is a perfect time to help gardeners achieve that goal.  
    Good tools don’t come cheap but if you buy right the first time the investment pays off in the life of the tool and the efficiency of the job.  The right tool often means less time spent on tackling the chore.  

  • The Woman’s Club of Harrison County met Friday, Dec. 9 at Hospice of the Bluegrass for their Christmas luncheon. Cheryl Case, president, welcomed members and guests then led everyone in the Pledge of Allegiance.  
    Zenoa McCauley introduced Pat Powers who was her guest for the luncheon.  
    Layne Tussey catered the meal. She served hot chicken salad, country ham and biscuit, pretzel salad and red velvet cake. Anna Ruth McLoney gave the blessing of the meal.
