  • A hundred years ago the structure at 110 College St. in Buffalo was a much different place than the worn and weathered building that stands there today.

    Built sometime in the early 1900s — probably about 1908 — the Queen Anne-influenced building welcomed guests as one of two hotels in a growing community thriving with commerce.

    Those days vanished, and the structure became a private residence, but if Ron Meyer has his way, those days are on the way back.

    “I had the idea to open a bed and breakfast,” Meyer said.

  • So how does a girl raised in Meade County end up living in Nakuru, Kenya, as an adult?

    It all comes down to faith for Teresa June Webb.

    “I’ve done a lot of short term mission work in a lot of different places in the world,” said Webb, now an ordained minister.

    Years ago, during a mission trip to Nakuru, Webb realized she wanted to return there. In December 2008, she did.

    “God just kind of directed me back here,” she said.

  • Some big changes in the community have resulted from small change contributed by Nolin RECC members. Co-op members and others have voluntarily contributed thousands of dollars in a special account through Nolin’s Operation Round-Up program. Since implementing ORU in June 2006, more than $85,000 has been donated to worthy projects and agencies in the communities.

  • After watching coverage of the Olympics in London, I was in the mood to cook something British.

    I decided, after hearing it mentioned in a couple episodes of “Doctor Who,” to make Jammie Dodgers.

    Jammie Dodgers are the brand name for a British biscuit, or cookies as we call it, made from shortbread and raspberry jam. They also are known as jam sandwich cookies.

  • As we near the end of our alphabetical tour of fruits and vegetables, I remember all the neat recipes I have found. This week is no exception, with watermelon and water chestnuts.

    I love watermelon whether it is red, yellow or pink; seeded or seedless. And I never would have imagined the recipes I have for you — a watermelon drink, a watermelon salad and even a smoothie and frozen pops made from watermelon. They are very interesting choices. I already have tried one of the watermelon salads and it was quite tasty.
