  • Used cars: A love story

    My love of the used car began some time ago. I love the used car because I’m cheap, frugal, broke; whichever adjective that you prefer. I am ashamed to admit that I’m also smitten with some of the fancy options. The fact that somebody else took the hit for those features, and that I eventually benefit, is also a selling point.

  • The essentials on essential oils

    By now, you’ve likely heard about essential oils, but may not be familiar with what they are and their benefits and risks. Essential oils are highly concentrated oils derived from plants. While used for centuries, their popularity has recently soared, especially among individuals looking for natural healing options other than prescription medications.

  • Mulch, mold and fungi

    I am often asked the question during the summertime how to get rid of mold in landscape mulch. University of Kentucky horticulture specialist John Strang and Extension plant pathologist Paul Vincelli offer some helpful suggestions. In addition to their suggestions, I have often found that a brisk raking of the mulch will allow the surface to dry sufficiently to disrupt the life cycle of the fungi or mold.
    Mulch can be beneficial in many ways on plant beds, around foundation shrubs and other gardening locations in your yard, but mold can threaten its benefits.

    It was a pitchers duel in the opening round of the All ‘A’ Tournament Thursday between Carroll and Trimble. The Panthers held a 1-0 lead for most of the game, adding an insurance run in the bottom of the fifth. The Raiders plated a run in the top of the sixth and had a runner in scoring position in the top of the seventh, but were not able to capitalize, as the Panthers won, 2-1.
    Carroll’s Zakk Hicks struck out 13 batters on 114 pitches, while Trimble’s Michael Dunaway struck out 11 batters.

  • Death of the dreaded neighbor lady

    I killed my neighbor lady last week.
    I’ve written about her before, about how she’s a huge butinsky when it comes to my kids and how she’s always running interference for them, “protecting” them from the way I parent them and just basically being a major pain in my neck.

  • LOOKING BACK

    April 25, 1984 (30 Years Ago)
    The Trimble County School Board voted last Wednesday to discontinue the varsity football program. Superintendent J.W. Sachleben said the decision was based on a lack of interest in football among the available male students and not enough numbers to play the game. During last year’s season, several of the players quit, a couple of the team’s best players were forced to the sidelines because of injuries and as a result the varsity roster dropped to only 12 players. Two games were cancelled.
