  • Not long ago I was stuck on an elevator. It reached the floor I wanted, but the door wouldn’t open. After a long day I just wanted to get to my hotel room and call it a day. Instead I spent the next 45 minutes trapped, just waiting for someone to get me out of that little box. Someone had to come with a key to get me safely out of the elevator.

    Need New Specs

    Dear Specs,

  • I am a sucker for a good country living/small-scale farming/local-eating memoir (any and all of the above). I grew up in the country. My family raised much of our food in our garden, kept chickens bees, and baked our own bread, as much as we could. Reading these memoirs reminds me of home, I suppose.

  • You may have occasionally heard the word, and you probably know one or two people who could qualify as being “narcissists,” but I also sincerely hope that you are not that type of personality, and if you are I hope that you realize that is not beneficial, and probably very detrimental as you relate to others both within and outside your family.
    Those classified as having a narcissistic personality are seen with an essential feature, namely that it is a continuous pattern of a need for admiration, a sense of grandiosity, and a lack of empathy.

  • Jennifer Lynn Wimsatt and William Chad Cheshire, both of Grayson County and formerly of Taylorsville, announce their engagement and upcoming marriage.

  • Despite the mild winter experienced through much of the nation, insect pest populations have been mostly below average in Kentucky. However, as the summer season continued, weather patterns made it favorable for insects to begin migration, especially in southern states. There have been reports of increasing numbers in the corn earworm, fall armyworm, and yellow-striped armyworm populations in various crops.
