    Progress report
    From the Bradfordsville correspondent: Our mill at this place is doing a fine business, running day and night. And its new owner, Mr. Terhune, judging from the way he makes things move, expects to make it grind if there’s any grind in it. This mill is now new and splendidly equipped, having a force pump that sucks water from the Rolling Fork, a distance of 350 yards. This certainly is a great improvement as, heretofore water had to be hauled in wagons.

    Anniversaries are a time to celebrate; a time to think about the successes of the past years, to analyze strengths found, rejoice in bonds made, and to dream about the future.
    November marks the 10th anniversary of the National Family Caregiver Support Program, created in November 2000 by an amendment to the Older Americans Act.
    It is fitting this month is also designated as National Family Caregiver Month and when the NFCSP was created.

    Dogs and cold weather - that means its time to take stock of your dog’s outdoor shelter. You may have wondered if dogs get cold in the winter.
    The short answer is yes, some breeds more so than others.
    So, in order to protect our best friends, let’s start with the top priority, which is to make sure Rover has a doghouse where he will be warm and sheltered against the weather.

  • Preliminary statistics indicate that nine people died in eight separate crashes on Kentucky roadways during the Thanksgiving holiday enforcement period (Wednesday, Nov. 24, through Sunday, Nov. 28, 2010). Last year there were eight highway fatalities during the same time period.
    All of the crashes involved motor vehicles and four victims were not wearing seat belts. Single-fatality crashes occurred in Hancock, Marshall (two), Owsley, Rowan, Shelby and Trigg counties. The crashes in Marshall and Owsley counties involved the suspected use of alcohol.

  • It is alright to go ahead and cut your roses back and cover the bud union to protect it from winters chill. We have had enough cold weather now that roses have finally started down the road to dormancy for their annual long winter nap.
    When cutting your roses back there is one very important thing to keep in mind, such as what kind of roses do you have? There are different pruning requirements for different rose types.

  • This week’s recipes are good if you have a little leftover turkey or ham and are tired of sandwiches.
    The first recipe is delicious and extremely versatile.  You can bake it in a casserole and serve it hot over chow mein noodles.
    Or, if you don’t have time to cook it, or your oven’s not working, or whatever, you can serve it cold on salad greens and sprinkle chow mein noodles on top and call it Crunchy Chinese Chicken Salad!

  • Picking out the perfect Christmas tree is serious business for me.  Some may find it a trivial chore but I want a tree that will be worth the effort of cleaning, moving furniture, hauling boxes, lights, step ladders and more.  But once the mundane is done then the fun begins.  Each ornament that adorns the tree has a story to tell about my grandparents, parents or me.  The tree is indeed important because it holds the past. And it must hold the past, in the form of many beloved ornaments, securely and with style.

  • As the methods for illegally obtaining the ingrediants to create methamphetamine evolve, it becomes easier to manufacture meth and law enforcement is seeing a spike in meth lab incidents.  Kentucky State Police (KSP) released the October methamphetamine lab statistics today and the number indicates an all-time high in the Commonwealth.
    KSP reports that there were 111 meth labs found during the month of October, exceeding all previous monthly totals, bringing the 2010 statewide total to 919.
