  • 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.

    No, I don't mean the Bible, although I read it every day.
    But for now, I'm referring to the newspaper.
    "Ahh, the newspaper," you say. "You mean that old dinosaur of the printed era that's somehow managed to stay alive, despite its shrinking advertising revenue and a dwindling subscriber base?"
    Despite rumors of its demise, the newspaper is surviving and in some instances, thriving.

  • Jehovah's Witnesses feel that all, including non-Witnesses, will benefit from the positive message and practical suggestions that will be highlighted at the 2012 "Safeguard Your Heart!"
