Russell said those on the committee could gather recipes from local residents and others at this year’s Ham Festival and have them published in time for the 2010 festival. She said she has worked with cookbooks before, and brought with her a Wildcats cookbook.
The cookbook can be “very customizable” and can contain several hundred different recipes, said Russell.
Cadiz City Clerk Lisa Rogers said the committee would keep talking about the issue, and they would probably vote on it at the next Ham Festival Committee meeting. Several of the committee members, including Thelma Fowler, approved of the idea.
Ramona Hamilton of the local Humane Society floated the idea of a “doggie jail” for people who bring their dogs to the Ham Festival, as pets are not allowed this year. She said she had a tent and enough crates and other containers for about 15 dogs or other pets, and that each container would have water to drink.
Hamilton suggested charging festival goers $10 for the service, which could be located at the parking lot near the courthouse basement, but Trigg County Treasurer Lucy Oliver said they could charge $15.
Rogers then suggested they could call it a “critter jail” as it might house more than just dogs.
It was also suggested that Cadiz City Attorney Allen Wilson look it over.
The next meeting will be held at 5:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 24, at City Hall.
