  • There is no other single food or beverage that promotes weight gain as much as sugary drinks do. Drinking one can of soda a day can add up to 10 extra pounds a year. The link between sweetened beverage intake and obesity is undeniable.  People who drink more soda, take in more calories and are heavier. Cutting back on sweet drinks and drinking more water is one of the easiest ways to lose weight.

  • The Abraham Lincoln Birthplace Memorial Building is still under renovation and closed to the public, park officials say.

    The building, which houses the traditional birthplace cabin, was first closed in September 2009 to solve mold problems and issues with the heating and air system.

    In May, park officials were hoping to be finished with the renovation project by the end of this month. Workers now are unsure when the repairs will be finished.

  • There was a lot of white clover almost everywhere this year (at least before the dry spell). Many pasture fields and lawns had extensive white clover where little or none was seeded. The excess clover in pastures has raised concerns about bloat and some farmers experienced cattle death losses due to bloat.

    So what factors have contributed to the abundance of clover?

  • The LaRue County Farmers Market will have a corn grill 2-5:30 p.m. Friday, July 30. The market is at the Extension Service's parking lot on Old E’town Road.

    To keep the best quality in taste and appearance in fresh vegetables when you freeze them, take the time to blanch them in boiling water. Blanching (scalding vegetables in boiling water or steam for a short time) is a must for almost all vegetables to be frozen. It stops enzyme actions which can cause loss of flavor, color and texture. Quickly cool vegetables after blanching by plunging them into ice water.
