  • Tips for a safe Halloween

    Halloween is always a festive time of the year, especially when there are children around. The magic of the season lends itself to making memories for the young and the young at heart.

     Halloween’s arrival is usually greeted with cool, crisp evenings and an array of colorful leaves – and this year should be no exception. For weeks, many of us are consumed with carving pumpkins; decorating with fodder shocks and fall’s vegetables; attending costume parties, and, of course, trick or treating.

  • Seeds for tourism have been planted and are growing

  • Park can feature old and new

    I’m a sucker for old things.

    I enjoy old cars, old furniture, old dishes and old buildings.

    In a photography class, I once had the assignment to photograph an older person.

    Please don’t be offended. It’s a term I use with much admiration.

    “You will find,” my professor said, “that because of age, (lines, wrinkles and all) an older subject will have more character than any other subject you will ever photograph.”

  • Idol factory open for business

    Today I did not go to the outlet store next to the grocery store.

    That may not mean much to you, but to me it was a major big deal.

    Lately, I haven’t been able to stop at the market without checking out the outlet. Even if I park far away I’ll say, “I need to walk more,” and head over to see what’s new on the racks.

  • Motorists need to slow down

    To the editor:

    I’m writing in regards to what I consider to be an every day worsening problem - reckless, speeding and inattentive drivers on US 62 between Georgetown and Cynthiana. I set cruise control on my vehicle between 50 and 55 mph most all the time because I recognize with the smoother ride of most of today’s vehicles, it is so easy to accelerate beyond the limit. I am passed around curves, crests of hills, in the emergency lanes, as well as in straight stretches... as if I’m sitting still.

  • H1N1 becomes ‘widespread’

    The fear associated with H1N1, commonly known as the swine flu, lessened in late spring when schools closed for summer vacation. However, the concerns returned in full force when schools recently returned to session. Last week, health officials declared flu in Kentucky “widespread,” the highest level.

     H1N1 is classified as a pandemic flu, rather than a seasonal flu, because it is caused by a new flu virus that people have not been exposed to before. The virus spreads quickly from person-to-person.

  • Commission vote made city look ‘desperate and foolish’
