  • Busy community is a successful one

    I’m excited for Cynthiana and Harrison County.
    There are some good things happening here that are moving us along.
    I hear the negative comments. I know we need industry and we need jobs more than anything else, but to paraphrase my grandmother, sometimes you can make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear.
    We’re not going to solve world hunger here, but we can certainly take pride in the good things that are happening.

  • How does God see you now

    It’s no surprise to people who know me that I am not a fancy Nancy.
    I’m not plain, and I am (I hope) feminine, but I’m definitely not lacy, doily, flowery foo-foo.
    I’m so not a princess.
    That said, I’m constantly getting invited to women’s events that border on the fancy. This past weekend, I was with a group of women at a nearby Victorian hotel, which has fancy in its very structure.

  • ‘Your Daily Bread’ Extension leader lesson will be Oct. 23

    The best guess about the origins of bread is the flat breads were common in the late Stone Age. Surviving versions include the tortilla, Indian johnny-cakes and the Chinese pancake. Raised bread seems to have developed in Egypt around 4000 B.C. By the middle ages, improved strains of wheat, grinding equipment, fermentation and the improved cooking equipment allowed the baking of leavened bread to become a profession.
