  • November is American Diabetes Month! Physical activity is an important part of managing type 2 diabetes. If you or someone you know is pre-diabetic or has diabetes, it is important to stay active. 

    If you have not been active, here are some important tips to get you on your way:

  • The Louisville area extension services will be offering the USDA Beginning Farmer Rancher Program starting in January of 2012.

    This program will be open to individuals who currently farm 20 acres or more, and who have been farming on their own for less than 10 years. The program is meant to be a very in depth farm management program, so some basic farming knowledge is required.

    The schedule of classes has been planned to hopefully minimize classes during busy times of the year.  

  • Trimble County Middle School recently recognized the 7th grade Students of the Month for September.

  • We were eating pizza — thin crust perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?
