  • There are different choices in home canning tomatoes

    Home canned tomatoes may be prepared in a ready-to-use crushed format or left whole or halved. But the latter choices can be processed in a variety of ways, also. Whole or halved tomatoes may be canned with water to cover, in tomato juice, or with no added liquid. The crushed tomatoes are a hot pack only, while the no-added-liquid version of canned tomatoes is a raw pack only. It is very important to use a canning process time that matches up with the preparation directions for filling your jars.

  • Juneteenth was a success

    What started as a whisper of hope ended in a shout of joy in 1865 when freedom came, and that same enthusiasm swept LaRue County on Sunday, June 16, when celebrants gathered to remember that blessed news once again. And what better place to recall the original announcement of freedom than the “Cradle of Emancipation” where the noble ideas of freedom were born along with the noble man who would suffer martyrdom to achieve them.
