  • Carrying resolutions from one year to the next

    Sticking to New Year’s resolutions has never been something I’m particularly good at — but then again, who is?
    I made four resolutions at the end of 2009, all of which I intended to fulfill in 2010. At the end of the year in 2010, I outed my epic failures in a column for readers of The Anderson News and carried forward those resolutions into 2011.
    So, as not to slight my “new” readership in Spencer County, I decided to do the same.
    Here were my resolutions for 2011:

  • COLUMN: Sen. Hornback previews 2012 session

    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

    By PAUL HORNBACK, State Senator

  • COLUMN: Floyd predicts 'toughest budget session in decades'

    LEGISLATIVE UPDATE

  • COLUMN: Make living for Christ a priority in 2012

    As we leave 2011 and go into 2012, I would like to praise the Lord for being so good to Roberta and myself. I am 82 and she is 79 and God is with us. He has blessed us so much.
    Some days are better than others, but as far back as I can remember it has always been like that. The amazing thing about living a life with God is that he makes you realize that no matter what comes your way, you can weather the storm through his love. When we take Jesus into our life we no longer live our life for ourselves, but live it for him.

  • Binomial sytem names plant species

    Most of us are not fluent in Latin so distinguishing between an Aesculus parviflora and an Aesculus pavia may take some extra effort. Throw hybrids and cultivars into the mix and our plant choices may increase with our confusion.

  • Marketbasket survey shows food prices slightly down during last quarter

    The latest Marketbasket Survey, conducted by the Kentucky Farm Bureau Federation in December 2011, indicates that average retail food prices in supermarkets across the state have decreased by 1 percent during this last quarter. According to the survey, the total cost of 40 basic grocery items was $115.90. This reflects a decrease of $1.16, or 1 percent, from the same list of items reported in the previous quarter.

  • Did somone say cookies?

    Margaret Glasford hosted her 15th annual Christmas party just prior to the holiday season.
    “It’s a fun family tradition,” Glasford said. “Everyone either bakes their cookies at home and brings them to share, or they bake cookies at the party.”
    Sugar cookies are the favorite, so the group baked and decorated over 200 of them. This year, many of the sugar cookies were baked ahead of time, she said, “so the little ones could start decorating as soon as they arrived at the party.”

  • Public Record: District Court December 2011
