  • Rineyville’s Boy Scout Troop No. 600 completed a physically and mentally challenging 20-mile hike at Bernhiem Forest on Sept. 16. This event completed the last of the Eagle Scout requirements for the hiking merit badge. The troop began its training for the badge after visiting Washington, D.C., where they averaged several hikes of more than 12 miles per day. The planning and preparation for the trek is intensive; classroom experiences and opportunities shared at the 2011 summer camp made the completion of the hike memorable.

  • Sharing recipes for “Recipe Roundup” is fairly easy this month. I have three recipes mentioned in the September “One of Hardin County’s Finest Cooks” column featuring Greg Milby. They are the Teriyaki Chicken, the Fried Biscuits and the Ice Cream recipe.

    The fourth recipe is one I found in a magazine and I can’t wait for an occasion to try it.

  • A few people have expressed to me their frustrations over their difficulty in making biscuits. Being a fan of the biscuit, I’ve tried to make several recipes and a few haven’t been too complicated.

    In fact, biscuits are so amazing you probably should have a purpose for them before making them or you’ll be tempted to eat the entire pan. I hope that’s not just me.

    I do believe that the summer weather is behind us and soon we will be complaining about the cold weather. It seems we never can be satisfied; it is too hot, too cold, too rainy or too dry. I agree the drought we had this summer has hurt the pocket books of many who had so much invested in planting crops, only to get little yield in return. Everything we buy this winter that requires corn or wheat to produce will be costly, because of the shortage.
