  • Veggie dishes to try

    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.

  • Edible Flowers Tasty and Pretty

    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.

  • Complaint filed against NSU about overtime pay

    A lawsuit has been filed against a Lebanon factory accusing the company of failing to pay appropriate wages.

    Steve Elmore filed a lawsuit against NSU Corporation on May 24 in Marion Circuit Court. The complaint only gives the plaintiff's side of the case, and NSU has not yet filed its answer to the complaint.

  • Murder trial delayed until July 30

    The woman accused of using liquid morphine to murder her husband won't face a jury of her peers until July.

    Wise, 61, of 4203 Bengal Road in Campbellsville, was indicted last July by a Taylor County grand jury and charged with the first-degree murder of her husband, Joseph. If convicted, she faces as much as life in prison.

    She has formally pleaded not guilty to the crime, and the prosecution has said it will not seek the death penalty.

    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.

    Oh, fudge!

    Potty mouths in Massachusetts may have to start watching their wallets.

    A Massachusetts town has recently made it easier for police to cite citizens for using profanity in public, according to an article by the Associated Press (AP).

    In fact, the penalty is a $20 fine.

    That is one expensive swear jar.

  • We shall call him 'Sparkie'

    Sometimes we choose our pets. Sometimes they choose us.

    Well, I think I've been chosen.

    Last week, a furry, four-legged friend showed up on my back porch. My cat, Biscuit, noticed him first. She began to meow very loudly, which she never does, as she sat on guard at the back door. I soon realized what she was meowing at as I peered out the door to find this adorable dog smiling back at me.

  • Stacheville: Population, 11

    A funny thing happens when you walk around a city with 11 guys sporting (terrible-looking) mustaches and matching t-shirts.

    A lot of people notice.

    I've done field research, so I speak with authority.

    Last weekend, I traveled south to Nashville with 10 other guys to make sure one of my best friends received a proper bachelor party.

    I think we were successful.
