  • 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.

  • 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.

    The shelter reminds pet owners that all cats and dogs should have a rabies shot. To adopt an animal, potential owners must complete an adoption application. The animal shelter accepts stray or unwanted animals.

  • I have a friend who gave up chocolate for Lent, so I wanted to make something chocolate and yummy for him after Easter.

    I came up with this Chocolate Surprise Cake, and it turned out even better than I thought it would.

    It's very easy, uses a jazzed-up cake mix and a few other ingredients to make a beautiful shiny cake with a cream cheesy chocolate chip center.

    It's quite rich as is, and icing is not really necessary, but you could add icing if you wanted to. Chocoholics take note: you should save this recipe. If you try it, you'll make it again and again. Enjoy!

  • I am particularly anxious to move some of my houseplants outdoors this spring. The gardenia that I have had for over 12 years looks terrible! It needs the restorative environment of the great outdoors: more light, warmth, higher relative humidity and rainwater. I am not sure whether the cold house during the January ice storm/no electricity episode has had an impact on it or if it was just coincidence that it began to die back shortly thereafter. In any case, it needs to be pruned up and sent outside to recover.
