    Special to The Trimble Banner
    The Bedford Rotary Club participated with Teen Leadership students from Trimble County High School in an exercise demonstrating the importance of one-on-one verbal communication without the aid of cell phones and text messages at our weekly meeting on April 28. As non-verbal/digital forms of communication proliferate, one wonders if we are losing the ability (or interest?) in talking to each other.

    Local crops are early this year, due to an unusually dry, warm spring. Probably the farmers who will benefit most from the lack of moisture are the strawberry growers. The strawberries are already ripening and according to several sources who have sampled them they are luscious and especially sweet. The berries are being readied for market and “U pick ‘ems” are about two to three weeks earlier than usual. Several of the picking fields are already open for business.

  • I broke the trash can. I didn’t exactly break it, more like dislocated it; and it wasn’t the entire trash can, just the lid- typical. Needless to say this was another fine example of the way most of my days progress. My motto is “If it can be broken, it will be broken.” It’s not that my aim is destruction; it simply seems to be the outcome.

  • The USDA recommends the use of self-sealing two-piece metal caps (lids plus screw bands) for home canning. For years, lid manufacturers have instructed us to preheat the flat metal lids in simmering water to soften the sealing compound before use. But if you use Ball® or Kerr® brand lids, your home canning has just gotten a little easier—preheating the lids is no longer required.

  • No matter where you drive in southern Indiana or central Kentucky, the black locust, Robinia pseudoacacia, is in full bloom, and a glorious bloom it is. There is nothing like the fragrance of black locust blooms wafting in the air and the Orchard Oriole singing in   the trees, or so my wife, Carole, says. I have to admit the blooms smell awesome. Although the tree is not much to look at otherwise, I believe it rivals the beauty of the common dogwood when it is in bloom. Its blooms are also a good source of nectar for honey bees.
