  • Much expected of new parks and recreation board

  • A fight for shalom

    It was a rare day off in the middle of the work week.
    What to do? What to do?
    My husband had called dibs on the computer and I had already caught up on the antics of the Real Housewives of both New York and New Jersey.
    The only thing left to do was go out and get into a fight.
    Actually, fighting topped my list, trumping reading online pop culture blogs, trumping even shopping for clothes I don’t need.
    Beyond anything else I felt the need to fight — fight for peace, for the shalom of my soul.

  • Small ears may mean poor pollination

    I gave up growing corn a long time ago; figured others can grow it better than me so why take up the space. I drive by Gallrein’s in Bagdad, Ky., twice a week and their “Sweet Corn” sign has been hung so there are no worries, they have the best corn this side of the Mississippi.
    The corn is looking good in some areas of my county and not so in others.
