  • My Kitchen, Your Recipe: Rhubarb Crisp

    Mary Iseler of Elizabethtown has sent in two rhubarb recipes. Since rhubarb usually is available in the spring, and with spring coming on fast, she thought it was time to share these good recipes. I know, I know, this is spring, but it doesn’t feel like it as I’m typing this on March 27.

    The Rhubarb Crisp recipe has been in Mary’s family for as long as she can remember. She doesn’t know where it came from, but all branches of the family have used it, so it goes back a long way.

    The start of spring brings so many things back to life. Wildlife. Flowerbeds. Playgrounds.

    But my favorite part of early spring is the return of neighborliness.
    Not long after Halloween, my family and my neighbors on Park Avenue in Elizabethtown call out to each other, “See you in the spring.” And we mean it. All winter long, every morning and every evening, we’ve hurried from our cars to our homes, heads down against the bitter wind. Other than a quick wave or a Christmas greeting, we keep to ourselves through those cold months.

  • James Corbin — soldier, father, musician

    Military experiences and a love of music combine for James Corbin, who has been playing the guitar since the age of 5.

    Corbin, who grew up in a musical family, toured with the Dirt Poor Authority band a few years before going to North Georgia College and his commission into the U.S. Army. He’s a cavalry officer who has been deployed to Iraq three times.

    The Army is what brought him to Fort Knox a year ago as a reconnaissance instructor. He also attended training there when he was a young lieutenant in the armor basic course.
