  • Thanksgiving blessings

    It was a different Thanksgiving for my side of the family as my grandpa Caudill, my mom’s dad, has had several medical events happen after he fell on Wednesday, November 22.

    He cracked his left shoulder in several places and completely fractured his left arm. He is very weak and is having a hard time getting around as he is very unstable.

  • Kentucky Virtual Library: For students, professionals, and the average Joe

    If someone asked me what Kentucky Virtual Library (KYVL) is, it would be a hard question to answer. I could say it’s a free resource offered by our library. That’s true, but this would be inadequate to explain the scope and depth of KYVL. That is what I will attempt to explain to you in this article because, once I do, you will more than likely find something useful to you personally.

  • Senator Meredith’s legislative update

    The leaves fell and the weather grew cooler as we transitioned into this blustery November. As Thanksgiving quickly approaches, the Legislature continues to hold Interim Joint Committee meetings throughout the Commonwealth and in Frankfort.

  • Privileged to be thankful

    When we were kids we all learned about the first Thanksgiving in 1621, where the Plymouth colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast. If you’re from LaRue County, you probably know that the first nation-wide Thanksgiving Day was declared in 1863 by Abraham Lincoln, but you might not know about the lady that made this national holiday happen.

  • Is it done yet?

    When you are cooking different types of food, especially meats, do you have a hard time deciding if it’s done yet? Everyone is at risk for a foodborne illness. One effective way to prevent illness is to use a food thermometer to check the internal temperature of meat, poultry, and egg dishes.

  • Tips for cooking and storing your turkey

     Here are some reminders about preparing and cooking your Thanksgiving turkey. If a frozen turkey is your choice, you can safely defrost it in the refrigerator, allowing 24 hours for every 5 pounds in weight. Check that the original bag is not broken, to prevent raw juices from coming into contact with other foods.

  • A man’s best friend

    It has been a hard weekend for me as I stayed home sick last Friday afternoon and all day last Saturday.

    We are on the go a lot and it was actually weird to be at home all day on Saturday. Although it was weird to me, our Shih Tzu dog, Charlie, loved having one of us home with her all day.

    I laid on the couch most of the day on Saturday watching football while Charlie laid on my stomach and slept.
