buchanan county: Wordless Wednesday ~ Double Vision~Lake at Twelve Oaks ~St Joseph, MO - 04/15/09 07:09 AM

The weather is beginning to feel like spring at long last...as I glanced across the lake last night I felt my eyes were seeing double.  Area residents will soon be bringing the fishing boats out, along with the kids throwing in their fishing poles, boating in the rubber rafts and canoes.  Life is fun at the Lake especially during the summer.  One of our local churches brings their kids every year and to see over 100 kids fishing and having fun is truly a precious moment.

buchanan county: Speechless Sunday~Midwest Winter Friends - 02/01/09 12:56 PM

 Saturday it was almost 60 degrees, it really gave a false impression, that spring was here!  This is a view from my deck.  The geese are really fun to watch, early in mornings they fly away to feed in the area farm fields returning about dusk they all come flying in.  I am also thankful that our doberman keeps them in the lake.

buchanan county: Western Tablet Company taking a new look as ~ Lofts ~ Mitchell Park Plaza ~ St Joseph - 01/17/09 03:09 PM

Western Tablet Company plant has been an integral architectural part of St Joseph since the early 1900's.  Not only was this where the original BIG CHIEF TABLET was made, but also the number of jobs at the factory.  The Western Tablet Company held the original copyright of the popular writing notebook but was sold later to the Mead Corporation.  In 2004 Mead closed the St Joseph plant.
 The Big Chief Tablet was a popular writing notebook for several generations of young children.  It featured widely spaced lines, easier to write in for those learning to write.  It's prominence however, … (10 comments)

buchanan county: Sweet sensation ~Holiday Candy Recipe Winner~St Joseph Missouri - 12/29/08 12:09 PM
Alexis Bremer of St Joseph recently won the News Press Holiday Candy Recipe Contest according to the paper by a land side. 
Dainty and rich (and chocolate, which impressed the judges), the cherry-topped cookies tasted more like candy. 
One bite was all it took to finish it off.  You can't do that with most cookies. 
Ms. Bremer says she'll probably use her $100 grand prize to purchase the ingredients for her annual baking day.  An avid cook, she schedules a day long baking session with family and friends for the holidays.  
Congratulations to Alexis for the award winning candy/cookies.  You can find the … (10 comments)
