  • Comer introduces promising industrial hemp legislation

    By Austin Ramsey

    Republican congressman James Comer said new industrial hemp legislation he filed in the House on Friday has the credibility and bipartisanship it needs to become law.
    The Tompkinsville lawmaker representing Kentucky’s 1st Congressional District managed to find support from both sides of the aisle and even sway GOP leaders who have stamped out industrial hemp efforts in the past.

  • Slice

    I have a long, unfortunate and adversarial relationship with sharp-edged objects. The list of the things I’ve managed to hurt myself on grows longer by the month. Yes, I said month. Many companies have signs to highlight how many days the employees have gone without an accident. Any sign of mine would be embarrassingly short, if not blank.

  • At the farmers market: corn

    For some of us, eating fresh corn off the cob is one of our top summertime, food-related experiences. Corn is one of the many great offerings at the roadside produce markets this month.
    Farmers harvest corn in July and August in Kentucky. You can boil, steam, roast, microwave or grill it. It is naturally sweet so try to avoid using butter, salt or other seasonings that make it unhealthy. Instead, flavor with fresh lemon or lime juice, or season it with fresh herbs like thyme, paprika, garlic powder or black pepper.

    TRI-CITIES, Wash.--J. Michael Kelly, driver of the U-12 Graham Trucking, started outside of most of the other competitors on the Columbia River Sunday, beat them to the first turn, and ran away to victory in the winner-take-all final heat of the 2017 HAPO Columbia Cup for Unlimited hydroplanes in the Tri-Cities, Washington. The U-3 Grigg’s Ace Hardware finished second, the defending champion U-1 Miss HomeStreet/Miss Madison was third, and the U-9 Les Schwab Tires was fourth.

  • Make the heebie jeebies go away

    Today I have the heebie jeebies.
    I’ve been listening to a podcast (that’s like a radio program that you download from the Internet) about fear: Why are people afraid? How can they get rid of fear?
    The podcast began with a story about woman with Urbach-Wiethe disease, a rare condition that has three symptoms: a scratchy voice, raised dots around the eyes and absolutely no sense of fear.
    The part of her brain that registers fear is calcified. She can be happy, sad, angry, feel love and feel hate, but she can’t feel fear.
