  • Post-harvesting dilemma: To can or to freeze produce?

    Soon, many vegetables and fruits will be ready for harvesting, and many gardeners will have more produce than they can readily eat. Those who want to preserve fresh, summer foods for later consumption will consider either freezing or canning the harvest. But is one way of preservation better than the other?

    Politicians, stop politicking. Forget about focus groups and pork spending and back room deals and war room strategies. Democrats aren’t evil and neither are Republicans, so stop treating people with whom you disagree as enemies. We’re all Americans, so stop!

  • LOOKING BACK

    30 Years Ago (July 29, 1982)
    Trimble County Recreational Park on Highway 421N is a huge success judging by appearance. Day and night this summer you can find a crowd enjoying the activities whether it is tennis, softball or just a picnic. “This has been a good thing for the county,” Troy Dean, Park Superintendent stated. “It’s a good thing for the kids, just look around.”

    This is certainly one of them.
