Today's Features

  • The stork has landed at our house once again. We had a specific surgery scheduled for one of our foundling cats. Unfortunately, not only do the plans of mice and men, but also desperate cat owners, sometimes go awry. Such was the case which is featured in this story.
    The desperately needed surgery had to be bumped and replaced by a vet visit required by another cat. Unbeknownst to us the little lady for whom the surgery was necessary slipped outside and Cupid was lying in wait. Several weeks later the dratted stork presented us with fresh feline recruits.

  • One of the sure signs of spring in Kentucky of the appearance of our own Kentucky Asparagus.  We enjoy its fresh flavor from April through May.  This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, lightly boiled, steamed, grilled, stir fried or baked.

  • Good communication skills are an asset no matter what you plan to do in life.  What’s the best way to develop good communication skills?  Practice!  
    The Trimble County Cooperative Extension Service is offering a great opportunity with the Trimble County 4-H Communications Contest that will be held on Thursday evening, April 14, 2016 at 6:00 PM at the Trimble County Extension Office, 43 High Country Lane, Bedford.  This event is open to all youth ages 9 – 19 in Trimble County.

  • Stories are swirling all around us, if we just take the time to listen. Triumphs, tragedies, dramas and comedies, the best stories are heard standing in the checkout line.
    At our local Big Box hardware store I was the last in line. The cashier greeted me with the perfunctory, “How are you?”

  • Years ago when I did a lot of conference and retreat speaking, I was invited to speak at the annual Episcopal women’s diocesan meeting at the cathedral in downtown Orlando.
    A local Episcopalian woman who had suggested my name offered to take care of all the details for me. All I had to do was show up, which is what I do best.

  • April 3, 1986 (30 Years Ago)
    Several plans are under study at the Kentucky Department of Highways to reroute U.S. 421 as it approaches the top of Milton hill. Eventually, the state plans to construct a new bridge over the Ohio River and the highway routing plans will coordinate with the Indiana Department of Transportation’s current road system. Wade Campbell of the Kentucky Department of Highways District 5 said the relocation of the Milton-Madison bridge may take 10 to 20 years to get construction underway.
