    I can hardly believe how beautiful my tomato plants look and I do believe I will have a ripe one well before the Fourth of July.

    But what I am really anticipating is our first harvest of summer squash. I love squash and am happy to eat it for dinner every night.   Last year, the garden was mostly a bust so I have high hopes for a bumper squash crop this year.

  • Thank you, Noble’s IGA

    I would like to thank Noble’s IGA for its donation of hot dogs and buns for the kids fishing derby held May 21 at German Ridge. They have done this for many years and the kids enjoy them very much.

    Good job!

  • State must close campaign contribution limit loophole

    One is a conservative. The other a dyed-in-the-wool liberal. They and their agendas could hardly be more different from each other.

    Democratic challenger John Gregg and Republican incumbent Gov. Mike Pence are locked in a tight and historically significant battle to win Indiana’s gubernatorial election in November. The outcome will have a dramatic impact on the direction of state policy, taxpayer money, social programs, education, economic development and a host of other concerns affecting Hoosiers’ quality of life and the state’s future.

    I have always believed that our country works best when the middle class is strong. It’s good for families, businesses, and our local communities. For decades, the strength of the middle class has been rooted in a social contract between businesses and workers, a mutual understanding that the success of one contributes to the success of the other.

    I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound and broilers and lambs are on pasture. I have a deep appreciation for homegrown food and this includes making it look pretty when it is served for a meal, especially when we have guests.
