  • Eagles glide past Thorobreds Tuesday, 70-54

    The Scott High Eagles made a four-point half time lead a 14-point lead at the end of three quarters and went on to defeat the Harrison County Thorobreds, 70-54 Tuesday night in Cynthiana.  
    The Breds’ inexperience reared its ugly head again in the third period as nine costly turnovers in the stanza helped limit the Breds to only seven points while the Eagles hit for 17.  
    “We played hard,” noted Coach Mike Reitz. “We have to learn to value each possession more and make better passes.  This will come with time.”

  • Holiday spices from tropical plants

    Considering how the quest for exotic spice fueled exploration around the world in the 15th century, it is no wonder that our favorite holiday flavors herald from around the world. From Southwest India to Southeast Asia, we find cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and mace.
    True cinnamon comes from the bark of Cinnamomum zeylanicum, an evergreen tree native to Southwest India.  This is the premium spice that is harvested just as new growth emerges from 2-year-old stems. It has a light brown color and the interior of the quills (the curled strips) consist of several layers.
