  • Kings offer $5,000 reward for missing coonhound

    For the second time in two months, Chester and Robin King are searching for a missing family pet.
    This time, they are pulling out all stops and offering a $5,000 reward for information that leads to an arrest and conviction of anyone who stole or killed their Walker Coonhound.
    Pretty Girl has been missing since Aug. 10, just three weeks after their Rat Terrier Petie went missing.
    Chester suspects that Pretty Girl was taken because he found empty meat packages at the end of his driveway on Riley Mill Road, which is near Claysville.

  • I’m livin’ a tomato dream; don’t wake me

    Last year I elaborated on the woes of my “garden” and the tomatoes it didn’t produce.
    It’s only fitting that I come back with my Year Two assessment.
    As you may or may not remember, my son made an 8-by-8 raised bed for me last year as part of my Mothers’ Day gift.
    I planted possibly too many plants in the limited area. That, combined with too much rain and water from the hose, made for less than desirable produce.

  • The hope for eternal life

    When people ask me what I do at my job at the newspaper, specifically what topics I write about, I tell them the shorthand version: old people, dead people and God.
    Actually, I cover a lot more than that, but those three — old people, dead people and God — are the three areas that seem to fall to me.
    This past week I wrote stories about four people who had died, and only one of them I would consider old.
    Of those four people, I attended three memorial services. As I write this, I have two services to attend in the coming week.
