  • COLUMN: Plan ahead for home canning season

    For those who preserve food, now is a great time to gear up for the season. Start by inventorying supplies and getting a head start on purchasing needed jars and lids and other necessities.

    Pressure canners: Dial gauge canners need to be checked for accuracy to ensure safe processing pressure and temperature. Contact the Extension office (270-358-3401) and make an appointment to have your dial gauge on your canner lid tested for accuracy. This also will be available on May 19, Ag Market Day.

  • Cafe supports those with memory loss

    Four couples recently sat around a table at a local church sharing snacks and stories of their favorite springtime activities, because after all, memories are too precious to lose.

    While all this may sound trivial to some, to these couples memories are everything because one spouse has been diagnosed with a form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Sharing memories through Memory Café gives them an outlet to socialize and support and receive support from others going down the same road.
