    Come & See Week

  • By Susan Spicer

    Here are some good recipes for my vegetarian friends. If you're not a meat-eater, you can find yourself without much of a choice at a typical hot dog-hamburger cookout. I always like to have two or three dishes everyone can eat.  

  • The third annual Marion County Dairy Day will be held at 10 a.m., June 23 for all local dairy farmers and their families in the agriculture multi-purpose building on the Marion County Fairgrounds. The event is being held in conjunction with the Marion County Fair Open Dairy Show.
    A meal will be served at 12 p.m. and is being sponsored by the Southeast United Dairy industry Association of Kentucky.

  • I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound. I just came home from working at Courtney Farms in Bagdad with a load of vegetables that will be presented to Community Supported Agriculture subscribers for a weekend gathering of shared experiences and shared food. We are combining our farming efforts to bring food to local families and that includes the pretty things that can be added and eaten in the mix.

  • Cub Scout Camp Day was last week at The Homeplace on Green River. Scouts from Marion County were among show who attended. In the picture, Elijah Kirkland and Evan Curry take part in a bit of bird watching.
