Blackberries may be the New Black Gold

The tide has turned and the new hero in the berry wars is the thornless Blackberry. Harvesting blackberries is now no pain - all gain. Blackberries are a culinary super fruit. -BARBARA ARMITAGE

By Barbara Armitage
News from the Adair County Garden Club

Blackberries are like the middle child in a big family. Too often they are over looked in favor of the flashier strawberry or those cute little blueberries at the supermarket.

Maybe because until recently picking Blackberries was like going to war - you have to suit up to protect yourself from being ripped to shreds from thorns sharp enough to penetrate bullet proof vests.

Building House Project for Mary McGuffin underway

Cane Valley Christian Church hopes to raise $40,000 by August 1, 2012 for "Mary's House"
The Adair County Way: Cane Valley Christian Church is spearheading community effort to raise money to rebuild home of mother, seven children, who lost their home in Keltnertown in fire

By Fran Neat

Mary McGuffin and her seven children recently lost their home in Keltnertown to a fire. They have been attending Cane Valley Christian Church for over two years now. Our church, along with community members, have started a drive to raise approximately $40,000 to build her home.

We would like your support in this endeavor and the support of the community. We are hoping to have the money by August 1 so we can begin the building project "Mary's House."

As the letter states, we have the land (at Cane Valley) and labor donated. Many supplies are being sold at a discounted price or at cost. I can envision this being a "community event" where everyone wants to get on board. Maybe even a group could go together and furnish a room or buy an appliance. The possibilities are endless.

We will do our best to keep the community informed on the project.
