  • About 95 percent of the land in Kentucky is privately owned. To successfully manage our wildlife resources, the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources works cooperatively with Kentucky’s private landowners.

  • Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities.
    We stayed uptown — which I would call downtown, but what do I know? — right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers.
    I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses.

  • * Cynthiana Democrat, April 12, 1917 - “Snowy Easter Sunday (April 8) Easter Sunday opened with a cold rain which turned to snow before noon and continued until early evening. That night the ground froze, and on Monday the pavements were slick with a thin coating of ice. All thought of Easter finery went by the board and the few people who ventured out went about in winter garments, shivering and miserable.”

  • 10 years ago . . .

  • Hope you don’t mind that I take this opportunity to reflect a little.  
    Another year is gone, I remember my elders marveling over this and how quickly time goes by and I get it now.  
    I have learned some this year, but I don’t necessarily feel smarter; I have aged some, but don’t necessarily feel older; and I have made new friends that have taught me that there is always potential which has made me excited about the rest of my life.
