  • Trail cameras are windows into the woods

    By Kevin Kelly

    Ky. Dept. of Fish & Wildlife Resources

    A few paces inside a tree line that borders an open field thick with chest-high grass lies a tangle of narrow, sun-dappled game trails just a stone’s throw from the Kentucky River below.

    Bo Spencer knows deer, turkey, raccoon and the occasional bobcat travel these thoroughfares because a trail camera he set up to photograph the spot has captured images of them.

  • Pete is still part of the Cincy All-Star Game story

    Baseball’s best will be coming to Cincinnati next week.

  • Two different meanings for submit and commit

    The men I spoke about last time discovered that their true identity as believers was paramount to change. That was the first of the keys to unlocking the secret to change. Their second discovery was the actual and literal meaning of two little words: commit and submit.

    Those two little words look the same and are often used interchangeably, but when you discover the real difference they open the door of understanding further. Discovery of their secret happened almost ten years ago for me.

  • What’s in a name? Misnomer treats still taste sweet

    They’re not balls and they’re not cakes. They’re actually cookies. Exquisite, melt in your mouth little cookies. And they are so very easy to make.

    This cookie originated in Mexico. Known as biscochitos in Mexico, the ingredients are ground nuts, flour, butter, and sugar. Once baked, the cookies are either rolled in balls or formed into a crescent shape and then rolled in powdered sugar.

    The ingredients are almost identical to Russian Tea Cakes. This cookie recipe didn’t start appearing in US cookbooks until the mid 1950s.
