  • Good breeding

    Nancy Bliss was first introduced to Arabian horses through Leadership Lebanon-Marion County, and her love for them has only grown since a visit to a Bradfordsville farm nearly 10 years ago.   That's when she met a mare named Kamirah.

    "I fell in love with it and bought it," she said.

    Today, Bliss and her husband, Bob, have 13 Arabians, as well as several large dogs, which any visitor to their farm learns quickly upon arrival.

  • Recipes bring back childhood memories

    Rene Zimmerman was an old German lady who was a babysitter of mine when I was a little girl about five or six. She was a widow, and a friend of my grandma Ruth. Her two sons, George and Jody, were the age of my parents, and veterans of World War II, as was my dad. Jody was a prisoner of war in Japan for three years.

    As a babysitter, Rene was okay with me, because she was a great cook and had a porch swing. She could also read your palm and tell your fortune. She made great pies, homemade dumplings, potato salad, and cookies. We would sit in the porch swing and play Old Maid.
