  • GUEST COLUMN: Lady Beetles cause problems in the fall

    It is that time of the year again: the attack of the lady beetles. Usually they sneak their way into our homes before now but the mild weather has kept them at bay. The chill is here so people are asking, “what do I do about all the lady bugs in my house.”

  • GUEST COLUMN: Jesus will not be fooled

    I preached my first revival in September. It lasted five days and what a great infilling of the Holy Spirit it was.

    On Wednesday night, I told everyone to come back on Thursday night, because I was going to preach a hell -fire sermon. When I got back to where my wife, Roberta, and I were staying, I got to thinking.

    Madonna Cash got her recipe for scalloped potatoes from her daughter-in-law about two years ago. She usually takes it to potlucks rather than serve it at home because her husband does not care for olives. She recently served this dish at a potluck dinner meeting of the Bluegrass Basket Guild.

    Cash does not cook as much as she used to anymore now that her children are grown. Now she mostly makes cakes or cookies for her grandchildren whom she sees often. A particular favorite is her caramel cake.

  • GUEST COLUMN: UK's All-Americans growing up

    “Common sense and a sense of humor are the same thing, moving at different speeds.” William James wrote. “A sense of humor is just common sense, dancing.”

    John Calipari danced last week. Scolding his players for not boxing out for rebounds, letting opponents push them around, the UK coach waxed comic, “ You get pushed into the cheerleader and you’ve got sparkles on the face when you come over (to the bench),” Cal said. “We’re like, ‘what the hell’s on your face?’

    Hilarious.

    The Spencer County Bears had one last chance to salvage its regular season Friday night but Anderson County proved to be just another loss in a disappointing winless season as the Bears fell to 0-10 on the year with a 48-21 loss.
