  • To the class of 2018

    As we knock on the door of summertime, there’s still one more annual community ritual that needs to take place, one with Pomp and Circumstance.

  • Happy birthday to our 226-year-old home!

    There likely won’t be any cake involved, but on Friday this week, our commonwealth will celebrate its 226th birthday.

    We were the 15th state to join the Union, arriving about four-and-a-half years after the first – Delaware – and four years before the 16th, which was Tennessee.

    It’s no overstatement to say we’ve seen a lot of history over the years. We have 30 National Historic Landmarks, for example, and those range from Churchill Downs and the Old State Capitol to battlefields in Perryville and Mill Springs.

    The Country Store purchased the former Jay’s Market building on Main Street. Owner James “Eck” McCane said he hopes to provide a full line of groceries to better serve the community. Employees had three days to get the building ready and move all of the stock from the store’s building on West Street.

    Joe K. Ginn, a Trimble County resident, was named supervisor of the month in March at the Kentucky State Reformatory.

  • Remember when He found you

    A number of years ago I wrote a story about a man who was as lost as a soul could be.

    When I met him, he was a pastor, although he didn’t look like a typical pastor, if there is such a thing.

    I remember his shaved head and “ROUGH” tattooed across the back of his neck. I also remember thinking he was one scary looking dude.

    His wasn’t a sanitized, heartwarming story, although it started out that way.

  • Traveling

    I’ve always harbored a fascination with hotel rooms.

    Upon check-in I spend a good bit of time searching the room. I start at the kitchenette. I poke around in a diminutive refrigerator that would fit perfectly in the treetop home of cookie baking elves. My son has one in his room so I don’t know why I’m so charmed by the tiny hotel kitchenette fridge.

  • Kentucky-grown asparagus, onions help healthy diets

    One of the sure signs of spring in Kentucky is the appearance of our own Kentucky Asparagus. We enjoy its fresh flavor from April through May. This versatile vegetable can be eaten raw, lightly boiled, steamed, grilled, stir fried or baked.

    Asparagus was first grown more than 2,000 years ago in the eastern Mediterranean region and was brought to America by the early colonists. It is the slender shoot of a perennial plant that ranges from pencil thin to about one-half inch in thickness. Our Kentucky farmers’ markets offer asparagus picked at its peak tenderness.
