  • Preserving the garden


    I am getting ready to head back to University of Louisville where I teach two courses so I really need to get organized. The garden is still producing and time needs to be spent on turning some of the bounty into things that can be enjoyed during the winter months. I have had the dehydrator going everyday this last week drying apples, peaches, berries, cherry tomatoes and potatoes.  Plus, predictions of rising food costs (ironically current reports indicate that grain and sugar prices are affecting prices now and I don’t eat much of that!)

  • Church as revelation - not routine

    When you stop to think about it, there’s a lot of repetition in our lives. We tend to do the same things over and over again, and often at the same times of the day or on the same days of the week.
    Sometimes it’s the big things in our lives, like going to the sa me vacation destination every summer. Sometimes its things like never missing CSI or American Idol on TV every week. And sometimes it’s just the little things, like the three packs of Equal you put in our cup of coffee. Always three packs.

  • Kickin’

    The Grant County Varsity Girls Soccer team played their best yet this season as they faced Cooper, a team they have struggled with in the past losing to them 5-0 and 6-1.  


    When the two teams met on Aug. 13, they came away with a 2-2 tie. “The girls didn’t make mistakes and played exceptionally well together,” said GCHS girls varsity coach Garrett Griffith.

    The strengths of the team are the ability to possess the ball and play great defense.
