My son Hunter loves to take chocolate sandwich cookies and put them into a glass, cover them with milk, mush them all up and drink it like a shake. I watched him make his favorite snack the other night and couldn’t help but remember the many times I watched my brother do the same thing except instead of cookies he used chocolate chips. He actually got a few of my best girlfriends to start eating this unusual treat after they had tried a sample while staying overnight with me.
Sometimes it amazes me what children and adults will and will not eat or better yet the strange concoctions that they come up with. Hands down my brother will always be the strangest eater I have ever met. You would be hard pressed to find another person who likes taco sauce, mayonnaise and salt and pepper sandwiches. When we were young he used to gross me out every time he decided it was time for a snack. He was undoubtedly born with an iron stomach.
I suppose I had a few of my own weird recipes, but none as drastic as my brother. One of our all time favorite sweet snacks was what we referred to as homemade pixie sticks. We would wait until mom brought home a tub of the kool-aid mix that already has the sugar added to it and then wait till she wasn’t looking. Grabbing a sandwich bag we would quickly dip two or three heaping tablespoons of the tangy powder into our baggie, twist it tightly so it was all shoved into one corner, and then grab a straight pin and poke a few holes in it. We thought we were so clever making our own lollipops until mom would discover how much of the kool-aid we had wasted. That is probably why she rarely bought the pre-sugared kind and stuck with the individual packets. I actually tried to mix one with sugar and eat it like the pre-sweetened powder, but believe me it is not the same.
One of my favorite oddball snacks was peanut butter and pickles on toasted white bread. When I was in the second grade we lived with my Granny while my daddy was building our new house. For some reason she never had any sweet stuff around. No cookies, no candies, no cake…nothing. So I grew very fond of making my peanut butter and pickle sandwiches because at least I got a small amount of sweetness from the peanut butter. Where the pickles fit in that mix I’m not sure, but the sweet and salty mix was just plain good.
My boys vary greatly in their individual likes and dislikes when it comes to food. Well, let me amend that statement just a bit…three of my boys vary greatly when it comes to their food choices, my oldest son Hunter will eat anything that sits still long enough. I have literally seen him out eat two grown men, hands down. His twin, Levi, is my pickiest eater and my skimpiest eater. My eight year old, Luke, will not eat any kind of nut unless it is pulverized into peanut butter and he hates corn with a passion. The child could single out a kernel of corn in an entire pot of vegetable soup, but he loves popcorn…go figure. My baby is a fairly decent eater. Out of all of my boys he has been the only one who has really loved fruits and vegetables at an early age. Grapes and strawberries are his favorites, but we found out Sunday that beets make him gag.
I have always been told that opposites attract and my husband and I are a perfect example. There have probably never been two more opposite people than us. We differ in everything from the temperature in the house to how clean we keep our vehicles to who we vote for on Election Day. Our food choices are no exception. For example, he says I make him sick by eating the fat on the bacon slices. When we get to eat breakfast out at a restaurant he will meticulously pick every piece of fat off his bacon slices and lay them aside. It grosses him out because I will grab them and eat them. When I tell him he is weird for wasting the best part of the bacon he always comes back with, “Well, I’m sorry if I wasn’t raised on squirrel and rabbit and whatever creature crossed the yard.” To which I simply smile at him sweetly, call him a wimp, and crunch my bacon fat a little louder.
God made us each different and individual for a purpose. After all, they say variety is the spice of life no matter what kind of dish you are sprinkling it on! Have a blessed week everyone and remember, “We walk by faith, not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:7.
The red-hot Powell County Flames youth soccer team went to Menifee County a couple of weeks ago and beat Botts Elementary 7-1. The Powell County Youth Soccer League had a spring and fall season this year, the first ever two season year for the sport and judging on the number of kids who came out to play, it was a good year.

It is the way you want to end a regular season. A big win at home on Senior Night over Montgomery County. The Lady Pirates varsity volleyball team won easily in two sets, 25-14 and 25-14.
It was fitting the way the first set got started. Senior Kelcy Short made the most of her big night as she put Powell up 7-1 with four straight scoring serves in the first rotation. The Lady Pirates scored five more in a row on Short’s serves in the second rotation to take a 22-11 lead.
The two teams traded points to the end, but Powell took home the easy 25-14 win.
In the second set the Lady Indians had their only lead of the night at 1-0. The Lady Pirates Melanie Pasley, a sophomore, put in two straight scoring serves for a 3-1 lead. The home team went up 7-2 again with Short serving. Teammate Kelly Gibson put three scores in to give Powell a 14-7 lead. Powell extended the lead on Short’s second service. She gave Powell a 21-12 advantage, then Jacey Rice made it 24-13, and the defense held for the win.
In the JV game Powell also won 21-12 and 21-9.
In the first set Montgomery took the early lead, but Powell came back to tie the game at 8-8. The Lady Pirates went ahead for good at 14-9, scoring three in a row with Holly Slemp serving and then scored six unanswered points on Charlene Helton’s serves to take the win.
The second set’s outcome was never in doubt as Powell scored 11 in a row with Tabitha Martin serving to go up 16-2, and coasted on to the win. The JV finished season with 12-3 overall record, 5-1 in the district and 9-1 in the region.
“A win over Montgomery is a great way to end regular season play. I was a little worried about not getting to practice for almost a week before this match, but we came in Friday morning and had a good workout to get ready for the Lady Indians, and the girls came through,” Powell coach Ken Jones said after the game. “I hope the momentum we’ve build up over the last couple of weeks carries on through tournament play.”
The Lady Pirates now move into 52nd District Tournament play at Estill County this week. Powell, the number one seed, played Lee County on Tuesday night. The score was not available at press time. Estill played Owsley County following that game. The district finals will be played at 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday).
The Lady Pirates are going for their fourth straight district title. The 14th Regional Tournament will be played next week, also at Estill County.

The game was exciting. Both teams moved the ball well, there was some fine passes and it became a shootout with each team trading scores. The defenses were almost non-existing. No it was not an NBA game, but the Powell-Magoffin high school football game last Saturday night. Powell took a lead, lost it and then kicked a game winning point after in overtime to win 49-48.
The win stopped a five game skid for the Pirates.
The first quarter was uneventful, but that changed in the second frame. Powell struck first when Tim Hardy scored on a 19 yard run untouched, then hit pay dirt again on their next possession when Hardy broke two tackles to rumble 58 yards for another score. Powell held a 12-0 lead. Magoffin County hit back quickly. Hornets quarterback Dylan Keeton connected on a 44 yard TD strike to a wide open Justin Poe who got behind the Pirates defense. Keeton then hit Jostan Helton on the two point try to make it 12-8.
Powell fumbled on their next play. The Hornets took advantage and scored on a 32 yard TD pass from Keeton to Poe. Then Keeton found Casey Adams for the two point conversion and the Hornets took a 16-12 lead. Powell hit back the same way, quickly. This time Powell marched 65 yards and capped it off with an eight yard run by Hardy. The two point try failed and the Pirates held an 18-16 half time lead.
The second half saw the shootout heat up. Magoffin scored on a pass from Keeton to Caleb Hall. But Powell answered with another big run by Hardy. The senior running back broke loose through the middle for a 50 yard scoring run and then caught a pass from Elliot Hale to make it 26-22.
The Hornets marched back down field and scored on a 13 yard pass from Keeton to Adams. The Pirates answered again when Daylan Charles scored on a 13 yard run. Derek Taulbee added the two point conversion and the Pirates held a 34-28 lead as the third quarter came to an end.
Powell extended their lead when they marched back down field as the defenses for either team had not played a substantial role in the game as the fourth quarter began. Hale scored on a one yard run and Taulbee scored on the two point try to give Powell a seemingly commanding 42-28 lead. But looks can be deceiving when defenses are struggling.
Just like Magoffin, who could not seem to stop Powell’s wish bone offense, the Pirates had trouble stopping the Hornets passing game. The Hornets added two quick scores, a 27 yard pass from Keeton to Helton to make it 42-36. The second score came with 7:30 to play when Helton scored on a five yard run. But the two point conversion failed and the score was tied 42-42.
Neither side could muster much offense after that as the defenses finally looked sharper and the offenses looked a little tired. The score remained tied at the end of regulation. The coin toss gave Magoffin the ball first in overtime.
Keeton called his own number and scored on a five yard run. But Powell’s defense held fast and stopped him as he tried to add the two point conversion. The Pirates now had their chance and a weapon in their arsenal Magoffin apparently did not, a place kicker.
Facing a fourth and goal, Taulbee bulldogged his way into the end zone to tie the game. Pirates place kicker Shane Karpensky, who had an extra point blocked in the second quarter, came on in a pressure situation. But the pressure and the smallest, yet loudest Pirates crowd in recent years did not seem to bother Karpensky as he nailed the extra point. The team rushed the field as the crowd erupted, the Pirates had held on to win 49-48.
“It sure wasn’t pretty,” Pirates coach Tony Burchett said after the game. “With the week we had, we decided this week to stick to the game plan and do what our shirts say, run the belly. If this don’t make you believe in the wishbone I don’t know what will. We are now tied for first in the district.” The win makes Powell 1-0 in district play along with Breathitt County, the Pirates next opponent.
The Pirates were not able to hold an official practice during the week due to the schools and all activities including practices being cancelled due to a flu outbreak. But with the exception of the defense being a little slow to heat up, the offense looked good.
“When things went sour, they never quit,” Burchett said. “I really appreciated that.
