  •  -- “Let us give thanks to God. . .Nature is beautiful and fellowmen are dear, and duty is close beside us, and God is over us and in us.”
     -- “We are pleased to be able to communicate to our subscribers, and through to the balance of the citizens of Harrison County, that the county court met on Wednesday last and unanimously voted for a copper roof on the new Court House. This is wisdom. It is just exactly what they should have done long ago.”

  • (StatePoint) Whether you’re playing host or bringing a side dish to someone else’s holiday gathering, preparing a delicious crowd-pleaser that’s simple and affordable to make is a priority for many.

  • The year was 2002, a year that lives in infamy, or at least extreme annoyance, in my daughter, Alison’s, life.
    That was the year of the cursed perfect turkey.
    Prior to that, Alison’s Thanksgiving turkeys ranged from dry to just OK. But in 2002 she took a madcap leap of faith, risked everything and brined the bird — and it came out brown and crisp on the outside, moist and succulent on the inside. Perfection with drumsticks and wings.

  • Considering how the quest for exotic spice fueled exploration in the 15th century it is no wonder that our favorite holiday flavors herald from around the world.  
    From Southwest India to Southeast Asia we find cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace.
    True cinnamon comes from the bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, an evergreen tree native to Southwest India. This is the premium spice that is harvested just as new growth emerges from 2-year-old stems.  

  • Kentucky USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director John W. McCauley announces that producers now have until Jan. 15, 2014, to report crops that have a Nov. 15, 2013, or Dec. 15, 2013, reporting deadline without paying a late-file fee. Crops under this waiver include wheat and native and improved grasses intended for grazing or haying. The Risk Management Agency (RMA) did not grant a waiver so producers need to consult their crop insurance agent for deadlines for insured crops.
