  • Let’s eat some carrots! I’ve always liked them, and my kids do too. My mom fixed carrots all the time when I was growing up, plus she always had carrot sticks in the fridge for munching.
    She had a dog when I was little, a big fat dachshund named Herman. He was always on a diet, and he liked carrots, so lots of those carrot sticks went to him.
    These two carrot side dishes I got from Mom’s recipe box. They are very simple to make, and very delicious. And for dessert? What else? Carrot cake!

  • Henry Howard “Cotton” Abell, 94, first started taking pictures when he was 10 years old. He won a kite-flying contest and the first prize was a box camera. He continued taking pictures until a few years ago due to macular degeneration. Cotton took most of the photos featured in Cotton’s Corner, but his first cousin, Bill Abell, also took some. Bill gave Cotton his slides when he moved to Louisville in the 1950s. Some of the photos in Cotton’s collection were also taken by Huley Browne. Browne’s widow, Violet, gave Cotton his slides after he passed away.

    Rated brucellosis-free
    Marion County apparently is on the verge of being declared a modified certified brucellosis-free area, which means that the incidence of the dreaded livestock disease in the county’s cattle population is below the figure required for such designation.
