  • Cooking with herbs

    Celebrity chefs say people eat with their eyes first.  Then, they serve up a deliciously crafted work of art on a plate.  It may be true, but most of us use our senses of smell and taste to satisfy hunger.

  • Soccer girls return strong core, hope for a better season

    When you lose to graduation an all state player and three other major contributors to the team it is hard to think that you will be successful the next year. 

    But optimistic would be a good term for Harrison County Fillies’ Soccer Coach Kim Jenkins. Despite the loss of the four players, Shelby Clifford, Lorraine Dennie, Ashley Lyons and first-team all-state Courtney Grannis, Jenkins has high hopes for 2010.

  • Thanks to all who supported Longest Day of Play activities

    To the editor,

     My son, Ian Boland, 7, and myself, would like to thank the Community Health Partnership Wellness Subcommittee for hosting the Longest Day of Play at FRVP on June 21. Our community was one of several in all of Kentucky that marked the summer solstice with a new perspective of fun outdoor games that encourage children to get active. There were 20 booths that were managed by various community organizations, and as always, our community comes together for a good cause.

  • Sports getting back to sanity

    The World Cup is finally over and I don’t know who won. I know who lost or at least some who lost. 

    The guy formally known as the savior of Cleveland finally decided who was going to have the chance to pay him obscene and ridiculous amounts of money to wear short pants, so that charade is over. 

    Now we can get on to what is important, baseball and the upcoming football season.  Before we do though, I want to comment on some of the happenings in the last few weeks in sports.

    First, the World Cup.

  • Dividing plants improves health, bloom

    We have all asked the question “why hasn’t my plant bloomed?”

    Sometimes the answer is as simple as not enough sunlight, not old enough, not cold enough or hot enough, etc. 

    In fact, it could be as simple as a little digging and dividing for some renewed blooming attitude.

    For most of my herbaceous perennials I wait until early fall to do a good portion of my digging and dividing.

  • All stars end season in Winchester and Harrodsburg

    The Harrison County Little League All Stars ended their seasons this past week as both the 9-year-olds’ team and the 11-year-olds’ team, with a few 10 year olds, lost.

    The 9-year-olds’ team played in Winchester facing teams of 10-year-olds and lost three of four games. They started with a 10-6 loss on Monday to Richmond, but followed with a 10-9 win over Mercer County on Wednesday. 

    They lost a heart breaker on Thursday to Lexington Eastern National by a 10-8 count after their defense had an inning-long collapse.
