  • FRANKFORT, Ky. – The days are growing shorter and cooler temperatures are starting to show up in extended forecasts.
    The transition to fall is underway.
    For Kentucky hunters, it started weeks ago with the opening of early fall squirrel season. Labor Day ushered in the start of dove season, and the onrush of hunting opportunities continues this weekend.
    Archery deer and wild turkey seasons opened statewide on Saturday, Sept. 6 and run through Jan. 19, 2015.

  • Labor Day has come and gone. Passing by quicker than a kid can say, “Summer vacation.” But what is Labor Day exactly? And why is it usually spent grilling hamburgers, instead of actually laboring?
    The first Labor Day was celebrated 122 years ago according to the U. S. Department of Labor. The Central Labor Union used the day to demonstrate their united strength by parading on Tuesday. Sept. 5, 1882, in New York City.
    Other cities soon followed the example and chose the first Monday in September to celebrate a “workingmen’s holiday.”

  • Every place on Earth has a history and there is much more that we don’t know about than there is in written form.
    Kentuckians get an idea of what the topography was like from the surveys and explorations of men like Daniel Boone, Simon Kenton and others. They had their run-ins with native Americans, but they also gained respect for their fearlessness. Both Boone and Kenton were captives of the Native Americans at separate times, but managed to escape.

  • My husband/wife does not “measure up.”

  • I’m always sad to see the state fair come to a close. I come from a performing arts background. My favorite acts are the variety acts, magicians; jugglers; ventriloquists etc. Magicians are my favorites because they can make the unbelievable, believable. One must realize they are just entertainers and nothing more. They are performing illusions. Even people like Chris Angel, David Blaine and even David Copperfield, will tell you there is nothing supernatural about what they do. They are entertainers and they are really good at it.

  • Once upon a time, I was an electrician; I ran wires, installed lighting and appliances, rewired buildings, all sorts of things. At the same time I never really considered myself all that handy around the house. I can do a little carpentry, but that measure twice cut once thing has caught me out a few times. For some reason plumbing and I don’t get along at all!

  • I heard a story once about a mother and father camping with their daughter in the wilderness. In the middle of the night a large bear reached into the camper and pulled the girl out. The little girl screamed “Daddy, help me!”.
