  • Justine Dennis, of New Haven, calls herself a fiber artist, and continues learning about her style of sewing she invented about 20 years ago, called Torsion Sewing.

    “As far as I know, nobody else does the same thing and it’s all done on the sewing machine,” she said.

    She added that many artist and gallery owners have told her that her style is unique and that they’ve never seen anything like it before.

  •  I remember first learning about Kentucky History in Mrs. Warnick’s 4th grade class. She was a Civil War buff and dressed up as a pioneer woman when we discussed that period in Kentucky’s history. She and her husband would participate in different Civil War reenactments in various locations. 

    I remember being fascinated that a President was born in Kentucky and wondered where and what kind of town Hodgenville must be to raise such an amazing man like Abraham Lincoln.

  •  We are living in a day of substitutes. Many foods and other articles have been replaced by something else.

    We have substitutes for sugar, salt, certain metals, wood. 

  •  One of the most common New Year’s resolutions we make is to lose weight. Mindful eating means you eat slowly and become more aware of when you become full, which prevents overeating.

    When we eat too fast our body doesn’t have enough time to send signals to the brain to tell us that we are full. It takes 20 minutes for food to reach the first part of the small intestine after its ingested. At this point our bodies send the “full” signals to the brain to stop eating.

  •  Rosalie Metcalf Bell of Wyanet, Ill., will celebrate her 94th birthday Feb. 9, 2013.

    She was born Feb. 9, 1919, in Athertonville and lived in Kentucky several years before moving to Illinois.

    She retired from Harper and Wyman in Princeton, Ill. and worked also at Hollywood Vasserette.

    She and her former husband Donald ran the Blue Ribbon Luncheonette in Hodgenville.

  •   When the weather gets cool, or downright cold as it has over the past few days and as it is expected to be most of next week, I really like to serve my family soup, stew or chili. Most of the recipes I use are easy and economical – both key factors in remaining in my recipe file.

    Since January is National Soup Month and since the weather has been decidedly colder, I thought I’d share some of my favorite soup recipes.

  •  What started as a small group of people seeking God’s guidance has grown into a solid church steadily building on its humble beginnings.
