  • Chickens, and so much more

    By Ben Carlson, News staff

    People come from all over Kentucky and neighboring states to visit the wildly popular Lawrenceburg Chicken Swap, but it’s a safe bet Wendy Hume is the only one driving a refurbished meter maid cart that once roamed the streets of New York City, looking for illegally parked cars.

    Hume, who lives in Stringtown, said she uses the three-wheeled vehicle emblazoned on each door with a bug-eyed bird and the words “crazy chicken” to haul what she buys and sells back and forth to her home.

  • Duncan Hines more than name of cake mix

  • God allows us to find quiet in the chaos

    By Larry Coleman, Faith Columnist

    “Why? Because I said so.”

    How many times in our lives have we heard those words or even uttered them ourselves?

    I wonder how many of us use these words without ever understanding what causes us to do so? That is where their significance lies.

     Many years ago as a learner, as a teacher and finally as a parent I finally decided to investigate why we use them. It all started when I first read the exchange between God and Abraham recorded in Genesis 22.

  • Don’t let cheesecake intimidate you

    By Ashley Fields, Cooking Columnist

    Cheesecake. For some cooks, the word incites a bit of trepidation.

    Perhaps it’s just fear of the unknown. Perhaps it’s because some consider this particular cake to be on the fancy, complicated end of the dessert spectrum and their skills aren’t quite on par.
