  • LARRY GILES TROOPER OF THE YEAR

    From one of our readers
    I just wanted to say that I love The Way We Were Page. It’s my favorite page of the weekly paper. the picture in this week’s edition (Feb. 3), was especially cool. My family moved here from Versailles in 1985. I was just a young boy. We  lived on Forrest Drive. In the picture you can see how that entire end of Forrest Drive was just farmland 20 years prior. It was neat to see that. Thanks, and I look forward to more old photos in the future.

  • These are not your daddy’s lima beans

    How are your taste buds? Did you know that we lose taste buds over the years?
    That’s exactly why we like certain foods now that we never liked when we were younger. Well, that and the quality of the cook. The quality of the cook, and the recipe used, makes a world of difference in taste.
    Foods that you may turn your nose up at now may be something you actually like someday. Crank up your food bravery this year and try growing some new things. My father hated pizza, until he tried it in his 40s. We had pizza every weekend after.

  • Panthers not only losers during Super Bowl 50

    Super Bowl 50 went exactly as scripted. Peyton Manning went out with a championship and the rest of the game was pretty much underwhelming.
    The game got off with on a positive note. Lady Gaga — doing her best Effie Trinket from “The Hunger Games” impression — nailed the national anthem. I think it is fair to say the country was holding it’s collective breath to see what she would wear and how she would sound. But, she surely didn’t disappoint. No complaints here.

  • Declining enrollment culprit behind budget

    Column as I see ’em …
    Those who work and pay taxes (which is the new definition of blue collar) aren’t going to like this very much.
    Based on its draft budget, the school district could raise property tax rates a full 4 percent this year and still bring in less total dollars than it did the year before.
    A lot less.
