Epicurean Kentuckian: Cherry Popovers



2013-01-13 - EK Kitchen, Shelby Co., KY - Photo by Pen. The Cherry Popovers from the EK ovens merit a higher cherry filling to doughy pastry filling than most. One can eat them with patriotic, if not dietary pride: They are of American origin, according to the entry in Wikipedia, Popovers. However, Anglophiles will find vindication in knowing that the sweet treats are a splendid derivative of very English Yorkshire Pudding.

Poetry by Robert Stone: Empty signs, a sonnet

Empty signs
- a sonnet reflecting on Macbeth
Ambition drives to fair and also foul
and fortunate the climber who has friend
to warn away from tempters on the prowl
disguising inner hope as foretold end.

Alas for one whose partner seizes fast
upon the glories restless heart predicts
and steels the softer feelings till at last
no conscience can the malcontent convict.

All crowns and titles are but empty signs
unless approved by general consent
and weary rulers find that worthy lines
of merit may their days of rest prevent.

The blood from wounded flesh will find no when
to reinvigorate the corpse again.

- Robert Stone, 13 January 2013

Bartlesville, OK 74003

Dear Jack and Joy and family

I noticed in the Tulsa paper this morning the passing of your Dad, our long time friend. After absorbing that in my mind for a few minutes, I laid the paper in my lap, took off my glasses, closed my eyes, and just had the best time reminiscing over some very happy times involving your Mom and Dad [Jules and Ruth Bourquin]. It occurred to me that you might like to know some of the things that came to mind.

Chris Bennett's way: A 4 year degree in 3. Online. With no debt

Fairplay, Kentuckian's route to bachelor's unconventional, for now. His way may not be for everyone, but it demonstrates that there are many different ways to educational success.

This story compiled from several sources, edited by CM

Local electrician Chris Bennett graduated from Northern Kentucky University on December 15, 2012.

It is not uncommon for a citizen of Adair County to achieve a bachelors degree from a state university, but his unconventional approach is causing a much needed revolution in the higher education field. Bennett completed his college degree completely online, taking classes through the KCTCS system, with Somerset Community College being his home school, and finally finishing his degree at NKU

He did it while continuing to work full time, and most remarkably, with no educational debt whatsoever.

Happy Tails: Meant to be - The Coach and his dog

Not a coincidence. The Story of Hazard and the man whose become his fast friend: "The starving dog, close to death, was given a new life with a loving home. The amazing thing is that Abe had wanted Hazard while he was at the shelter and he just happened to come to the farm and there he was. This is more than just a coincidence. It goes to prove that if it's meant to be - it's meant to be. Proof that things work out for a reason." - Peg Schaeffer. With a rallying cry to get incoming Kentucky legislature to change laws which allow Kentucky to be known as the Best State in the Nation to be an Animal Abuser.

By Peg Schaeffer

Meant to be

I received a phone call from a woman who was very concerned about three dogs living in her neighborhood. The dogs were all chained and were not being cared for properly. They were skinny and unkempt and she wanted me to investigate. I don't have the authority to inspect living conditions, so I told her she needed to contact the Sheriff's office.

By Billy Joe Fudge, Retired District Forester
Kentucky Division of Forestry

Turkey Buzzards are considered to be docile, bashful, and with few exceptions purely carrion carnivores. They of course are easily identified by their ugly and I do mean ugly, featherless red heads. Beautiful birds with ugly red heads rendering a really great service in our ecosystem by cleaning up rotting and decaying flesh of animals which have succumbed to the Grim Reaper.

The Whitehurst Diaries: Old Grey Homestead

A study of Adair County's wonderful homestead relics and how they elicit warm imaganings. And a closer look at one on Big Creek, Gradyville, KY: I look at these old places as we drive slowly past and try to imagine smoke from a supper fire feathering out of the shattered chimneys, windows gleaming and decked with crisp curtains. I wonder about the families who lived there, their names and their stories. - SHARON WHITEHURST

The back roads of Kentucky abound in abandoned homes and farms. It seems that when a house in no longer considered livable, or a building useful, it is simply allowed to weather picturesquely, slowly disintegrate, and eventually cave in and topple into the surrounding weeds and brush
