  • A Dash of Class: Try a cookie exchange for variety

    Nora’s Note:  Two corrections from last week: The amount of margarine in the chocolate fantasy fudge recipe was supposed to be 1 ½ sticks of margarine or ¾ cup instead of 3 cups of margarine. Also, the headline failed to be changed from the previous week and was supposed to be “Getting Ready for Christmas.” Mistakes do happen; I just hope you didn’t try to make Mrs. Claycomb’s fudge with twice the amount of margarine.

  • Crafting a wish list



    Wish lists get harder every year.

    Not just for me and not just for Christmas.

    I think the older you get the fewer things you need that you don’t go out and get for yourself once you decide you need them. That makes buying gifts for parents particularly tricky.

    You know what I mean.

    Parents are always the first to tell you, “Don’t get me anything.”

    That’s because they always buy for themselves what they want as soon as they want it.

  • State Chamber leader talks taxes, education

    When Dave Adkisson, president and CEO of the Kentucky Chamber of Commerce, travels around the state to talk business and politics, he almost always mentions Kentucky’s bright spot in the tough economic environment: the Fort Knox area.
    The influx of thousands of new jobs through the post realignment has sheltered Hardin County from the worst of the Great Recession.
    “Every community in the state of Kentucky would love to have that,” he said.
