  • Sunroom makeover

    Finally, after discussion, debating and a fair share of whining, my husband agreed to get rid of a pair of atrocious carpets. The carpets were decades old and have been the recipients of many assaults of the human and pet kind. No amount of vacuuming and steam cleaning had lightened the dingy color, eliminated the odor, or dispelled the carpet ghosts. One fine morning the carpet guys showed up and removed the bane of my existence. That afternoon I was free of dingy, smelly, haunted carpets!

  • Menu labeling to become a reality next year

    When the U.S. Food and Drug Administration released its final guidance on menu labeling in late April, it was the last step in a process to require restaurants, convenience stores, take-out, retail establishments and supermarkets to publish the calorie content of their food on their menus.
    Some chain restaurants were already publishing this information on some items in anticipation of this announcement. Others have until May 2017 to implement the change.

  • 1953 Golden Jubilee Ford tractor

    Spending summers on our grandparents’ farms was a rite of passage for some of us. The rapidly changing face of the American Culture of the 60’s and 70’s left many of our parents (children of the Great Depression of the 30’s) wanting their progeny to experience and understand what their childhoods were like.
    That is how I found myself, the summer of my 10th birthday, at my grandparents’ farm. Granddaddy had built a roughhewn bunkhouse to house my cousins and me for the farm labor we would provide for the summer.

  • Walking in shoes of grace

    I wish you could walk in my shoes.
    I’m talking about my Skechers round-toed EZ Flex 2 Sweetpea slip-ons with the softest, most cushiony memory foam footbeds that feel like I’m walking on pillows.
    I have three pairs -- black, gray and powder blue. Today I’m wearing the powder blue ones. They are the most comfortable shoes I own and quite possibly the most comfortable shoes I may have ever worn before in my entire life.
    I love these shoes.

  • LOOKING BACK

    June 5, 1986 (30 Years Ago)
    This year’s Trimble County Fair promises to be bigger and better than ever before. Running from June 17-21, the fair’s theme is Celebration ’86. The theme was chosen by fair board members from entries submitted by local students. Celebration ’86 was the idea of Sabina McCoy, daughter of Charles and Corliss McCoy, Milton.

  • Generations have sacrificed for freedoms we enjoy

    Bowling Green Daily News

    “But in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate, we cannot consecrate, we cannot hallow this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here have consecrated it far above our poor power to add or detract.”
    As we remember President Abraham Lincoln’s words from his famous Gettysburg address, we are reminded that the Memorial Day holiday should be a time of reflection.

  • DO YOU REMEMBER?
  • Kentucky’s obesity rate doubles in past two decades

    To get a better understanding of just how prevalent obesity has become in America, consider that no state had more than 20 percent of its adult population fall in that category in 1996. Today, no state has less.
    Kentucky has seen its rate for adults double during that timeframe, from about 16 percent to more than 32 percent, putting us 12th highest among the 50 states. Unfortunately, the state rankings are worse for our children, with high schoolers leading the nation and those not yet school age ranked sixth.
