  • Blueberry planting and maintenance

    No other berry crop has gained the popularity of the blueberry.

    I am glad it has earned this distinction because blueberries are actually pretty easy to grow if you provide them with some timely attention.

    Once they are established some late winter pruning and fertilization is all you need to do to keep them in production.

  • History is worth preserving, but it must be done right

    Putting the cart before the horse.

    It's a common mistake when beginning a new project. People get so excited about thoughts of the end result that they innocently skip over some of the most essential steps along the way.

    That is what we believe has happened with the Marion County Historical Society and its plans for a local history museum. The society and its members have hundreds of fascinating items to include in exhibits and a list of possible volunteers to help with the day-to-day happenings at the museum, but several key components are missing.

  • Dress up some cornbread

    Cornbread is comfort food to me-a fond taste memory from my childhood.

    My grandma Dillon made cornbread all the time, lots of different ways. Sometimes she'd make the fried cornbread common around here (she called it "Southern cornbread".)

    She also made regular cornbread in a cast iron skillet and sometimes in cast iron corn stick pans which I still have.

    She even made a special souffle-like cornbread, which she called "spoonbread." It was light and buttery, and sometimes we put gravy on it.

  • In training

  • Potatoes, asparagus, onions first in the vegetable garden

    It is time to start preparing for the vegetable growing season in earnest: asparagus, potatoes, onions and leeks can be set out now; in a few weeks, as the soil is workable and warms to about 45 degrees, we'll direct seed radishes, turnips, parsnips, beets, carrots, peas, spinach and other greens and lettuces.

    Other cool season crops like broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage and Brussels sprouts do better set out in the garden as seedlings.

  • Board gets candidate names from search committee

    Monday evening, the Marion County superintendent screening committee met in joint session with the Marion County Board of Education. During the meeting, the screening committee recommended candidates to be considered for the superintendent seat.

  • Milby will take over as softball coach

    Trent Milby is entering a new but familiar situation.

    Milby takes over this season as the Marion County High School softball head coach, replacing Brenda McIlvoy. Like the girls basketball team he coaches, the Marion County softball team lacks an elder stateswoman on the practice field.

    This year's Lady Knights round ball squad featured one senior, Dee Johnson. This year's Lady Knights hit squad has no seniors and only two juniors.

  • Lebanon mans sues Campbellsville Taco Bell, awarded more than $300,000

    A Lebanon man has been awarded more than $300,000 by a Taylor County jury after he found a metal hook in food he purchased at Taco Bell in Campbellsville.

    In April 2007, Lebanon attorney James L. Avritt Jr. filed a complaint in Taylor Circuit Court on behalf of Steven L. Farmer against TB of America Inc., Larry Fugate and Fugate Enterprises.

  • Track team hopes to build on last year
