  • Biddle continues to run strong, no matter the distance or weather

    Right when she learned to walk, Debbie Biddle said she learned to run.

     

    “Don’t we all run before we walk?” she said.

     

    A computer teacher at Harrison County High School, Biddle runs twice a day... running at least 50 miles each week.

     

    “I started running like I run now because I was no longer playing team sports, and still wanted to exercise,” she said.

     

    At college, Biddle began long-distance running, and she hasn’t stopped since.

    After last week’s blow from Mother Nature, the Rohs Opera House and  the Cynthiana Arts Council are offering a classic movie treat titled, ironically, “Some Like It Hot.” Starring Jack Lemmon, Tony Curtis, and the legendary Marilyn Monroe, this black and white film was voted the number one American comedy of all time by the American Film Institute. “Some Like It Hot” has lost none of its appeal in the half century since it premiered in 1959.

  • Kentucky Blood Center issues emergency appeal

    The Kentucky Blood Center is issuing an emergency appeal for blood donors due to a swift decline in donations and a winter storm warning projected to cripple the blood supply.

     Weather has already forced the cancellation of multiple blood drives in the past 10 days, causing 350 pints of blood to go uncollected. Transfusions have outpaced blood donations by more than 250 pints in the past 72 hours at hospitals served by KBC.

  • More bad weather, more trouble for plants

    It seems we are in the middle of yet another “situation,” as my husband calls it, served up by Mother Nature.  At present, we are right in the middle of the mess out at the farm.  No electricity, no phone line, no heat and no water. 

    We can manage well enough inside with the fireplace, kerosene heater, camp stove, down comforter and strategic water rationing (with supplements brought in from town).  Outside is a different story. 

    The ice storm and snow have left a path of downed trees and limbs.
