  • Respect

    On an evening stroll with my husband and dog last week, I was admiring the progress of several projects at Flat Run Veterans Park.

    Playground equipment beckons small children to the center of the park.

    The unique earth-bag structure, sponsored by the Cynthiana Rotary Club, has walls.

    The presence of heavy equipment and long lines of trenches indicates a sewer line will soon be completed for the new Farmers Market building.

    But among all the progress, destruction slapped me in the face.

  • The ABCs of healthy eating

    A new dish tops the menu at this year’s Kentucky State Fair.

    Meet the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger.

    Think of a regular cheeseburger. Now, take off the bun and replace it with a Krispy Kreme glazed donut on the top and bottom.

    And it’s not just Kentuckians buying the 1,000-calorie-loaded concoction.

    At the Wisconsin State Fair earlier this month, patrons could not only buy the Krispy Kreme cheeseburger, they could also pay an extra dollar to top it off with chocolate-covered bacon.

    I like donuts.

    I like hamburgers.
