  • State protects nature preserves

    “Buy land,” Mark Twain once said.  “They’re not making any more of it.”

    That investment advice has been taken to heart by the Kentucky State Nature Preserves Commission, which formally celebrated 35 years of service last week.

    Since it began, the commission has permanently set aside more than 25,000 irreplaceable acres for future generations.  Their 60 nature preserves range from the Blanton Forest near Virginia to Three Ponds along the Mississippi River.

  • 9.11 Remembered

    As I write on Sunday evening, Sept. 11, I have spent several hours watching programs devoted to remembering our national tragedy of 10 years ago. I thought I would not forget the events of that day, but I had forgotten so much. Sept. 11, 2001 has now become a part of our country’s history, one we can add to, “I know just where I was on the day I heard President Kennedy had been shot.”

  • Spiritual nourishment is one of many reasons to go to church

    This story was recently sent to me via e-mail. Hope you enjoy it.

    “A church-goer wrote a letter to the editor of a newspaper and complained that it made no sense to go to church every Sunday. ‘I’ve gone for 30 years now,’ he wrote, ‘and in that time I have heard something like 3,000 sermons. But for the life of me, I can’t remember a single one of them. So, I think I’m wasting my time and the pastors are wasting theirs by giving sermons at all.’

  • Recipe offers new way to prepare pickled beets

    I recently made chicken and dumplings for dinner — a nice Sunday one. These kind of meals usually remind me of my grandmother, but on this day I couldn’t help but think of my own mother and the story she once told.

    My dad always teased Mother about the fact that when he married her, she didn’t know how to boil water. That wasn’t exactly true, though.  Mother came from a very poor family and had to learn to do many things while growing up, cooking included. Since my grandmother was such a good cook, I am sure my mother learned well from her.
