  • With help of extension office, students learn to properly prepare food

    Properly preparing food became second nature to fifth graders this week at the Owen County Cooperative Extension Office. With a mixture of fruits, vegetables and other foods, students had the chance to create a five-course meal that they would then eat.
    To bring a greater knowledge of food to Owen County fifth graders, Owen County Extension Agent for Family and Consumer Sciences Judy Hetterman led students in the grant-funded nutrition education program titled Recipies For Life. The program offers students the opportunity to learn more about the good they eat.

    Daisy
    By Austin Blackwell

    Laying in the window looking
    With dark brown eyes
    she is small and
    fits in a tea cup
    she lays at night
    in my bed
    under the covers
    when day comes
    she watches for the deer.
