  • Don't fret - our moss-covered hero is still doing what he does best.

    The last time I hung out with the Turtle Man, Ernie Brown Jr., it was too cold for a turtle hunt. Luckily, the Turtle Man and his entourage remembered me and invited me along recently.

    I enjoyed my time with the Turtle Man last time but it's hard to get a full assessment of the Turtle Man without seeing him in action. If you've seen his videos and were impressed, let me tell you he does not disappoint in person. It's even better.

  • Since this column will run on 9-9-09, I decided to feature recipes for nine things to do with a yellow cake mix.

    These are all very tasty and easy recipes-see if you can find one you like!

  • Here are a couple of delicious Texas recipes I got from my Aunt Marge years ago.

    The Texas Caviar is a terrific salsa-like dip that I guarantee your guests will love. Serve it with tortilla chips, corn or flour, and you'll be surprised how quickly it disappears.

    The Southwestern Casserole is easy and delicious, a real family-pleaser.

  • Chester, a Pomeranian mix, is almost 1 year old. He will be very loyal and protective of his owner. Chester is crate trained and loves to play but would not be good around small children.

  • I just came in with a basket of vegetables from the garden.

    I have some good ripe tomatoes and some beautiful green peppers, so I'm definitely making fresh salsa.

    I got a decent mess of beans, the purple ones that turn green when you cook them.

    And, of course, I also have a few more zucchini.

    The Fresh Salsa I make is super easy and delicious, great on tortilla chips, or accompanying grilled meat, tacos, etc. I also like it used as a dressing on lettuce for a great salad.

  • Jasmine is a 2-year-old Rat Terrier mix that is looking for a new home.

    She will need a little help with housebreaking, but she is a fast learner and will make a great pet for anyone looking for a pet to curl up with on the couch.  She may not do well with small children as she does not care for being grabbed at or her face being touched too much. Jasmine is spayed and current on all of her shots, this makes her adoption fee only $25.

     

  • I've had several people call and ask me what to do with an over-abundance of zucchini or yellow squash. This is a common problem for gardeners-it happens every year.

    Even though I've scaled back my zucchini to four plants, I also have more than I can eat fresh.

    If you want to freeze the excess, you can. The easiest way is to shred the zucchini, drain and pack in one-cup portions to use in bread, cookies, etc.

  • Have you ever considered the scape?

  • The City of Bardstown, Nelson County Fiscal Court and the Bardstown Industrial Development Corporation are pleased to announce that SYKES Enterprises will operate their newest state-of-the-art call center in Bardstown.

    SYKES Enterprises, headquartered in Tampa, Fla., will operate a call center for a major telecommunication company in the Kentucky Home Square Shopping Center in the site formerly home to Winn Dixie.

  • Preliminary statistics indicate that eight people died in eight separate crashes on Kentucky roadways during the four-day July 4th Holiday period, Thursday, July 2 (6 p.m.) through Sunday, July 5, (11:59 p.m.)

    Four of the fatalities involved motor vehicles and none of those victims were wearing seat belts. Motor vehicle crashes occurred in Bullitt, Clark, Davies and Mercer counties. Two of the crashes involved the suspected use of alcohol.

  • The county clerk's office is responsible for many things other than renewing automobile tags and registering voters.

    Marion County Clerk Karen Spalding submitted the following information about things the public may not know that goes on in her office on a daily basis.

    For example, if you purchase a vehicle outside of Marion County, you should request that the dealer send the title work to Marion County so the tax money will be used in your home county and by Marion County Fiscal Court.

    Other information the public may, or may not, know about includes:

  • Campbellsville University awarded Excellence in Teaching Awards to 145 educators from across Kentucky during the 23rd annual awards program May 16, 2009, in the Winters Dining Hall of the E. Bruce Heilman Student Complex on the Campbellsville University campus.

    John Chowning, vice president for church and external relations and executive assistant to the president, gave the welcome and opening remarks. He congratulated the teachers for their achievements and said, "We are honored and humbled to honor you today."

  • If small business is the mainstay of the nation's economy, then it's important to plan for the future by training the small business owners of tomorrow today. That's the concept behind a growing movement to introduce young people to the idea of entrepreneurship and all the myriad aspects to owning their own business.

    Students at St. Patrick's School in Maysville, 4-H'ers in Grant County and teenagers in Marion, Washington, Taylor and Casey counties have had firsthand experience in what it takes to be an entrepreneur. For many, it was an eye-opening experience.

  • Everyone likes warm homemade bread or rolls, right?

    If you don't think you have time for hat, here's an easy, quicker alternative that absolutely anyone can make and everyone will love.

    I got this recipe many, many years ago from an old friend firm Campbellsville, Greg "Speedy" Ford. He was one-third of a band called "Ford, Moyers and Houk" that used to play around here.

  • I'm very happy to announce that there will be a rabies shot clinic held here in Marion County. It will be held at Burkmann’s Feed located at 212 N.  Depot Street in Lebanon. The date for the clinic is Thursday June 18. The hours are from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and the cost will be $5 per dog and cat.  

  • Stacy Bartley puts her 10-month-old daughter Addi in her car seat after having it inspected at the Marion County EMS Building May 27.

    Nationally certified child passenger safety technicians inspected 15 child safety seats for damage, 10 of which were replaced.

     

  • Jill is Pet of the Week at the Marion County Animal Shelter.

    She is a shepherd mix who loves to play and is very outgoing and very loving.  She loves attention and toys.

    Jill is about 8 months old and will make a great pet for a family with older children or anyone looking for a fun-loving companion.

    If your pet is missing, call the shelter-it may be there. For a complete listing of pets with pictures visit adoption@petfinder.com.
