  • If you’re like me, you could eat your weight in Japanese steakhouse-style rice.

    It’s probably my favorite part of that kind of meal.

    One day at work, as it often happens in our department, the conversation turned to some of our favorite foods from our favorite restaurants. During the discussion, a coworker brought to my attention that Japanese steakhouse-style rice is easy to make at home. His girlfriend makes it all the time and she gave me a few tips.

  • This month’s “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” is a Hardin County transplant and we are so glad she chose to live here. She is Glenda Jackson, mother of my neurosurgeon, Dr. Thad Jackson. She and her husband moved from Santa Claus, Ind., to Florida, and after Dr. Jackson and his wife, April, moved to Elizabethtown to open his practice, the Jacksons moved here to be closer to family, especially Ethan and Emily, their grandchildren.

    The next meeting is the club’s annual picnic, beginning at 10 a.m. June 12, at Freeman Lake Park. The picnic will be hosted by Alice Bennett and Sue Logsdon. The club will not meet again until September.

  • If you’ve bought a country music album lately, you’ve likely heard the results of Sage Benado’s pedal board design.

    A guitar pedal is a foot operated device that’s used for producing altered sound for an electric guitar. Functions such as reverb and distortion can be controlled  using a pedal.

    Two of Nashville’s most popular session recording musicians, Brent Mason and Paul Franklin, are among those who use the Benado Effects pedal.
