  • Caring for plants, colds aren’t very different

    Having a cold is not my idea of a good time.
    Sleeping becomes particularly annoying. The nose stops up, the mouth drops open and the next thing you know you’re drooling all over your pillowcase.
    Whenever a bug has the nerve to enter my body, I go into full battle mode. Besides drinking gallons of herbal teas, water and juice, I start sucking down oranges and bananas, like ET going after Reece’s Pieces. I also take aspirin on a regular basis, eat right and try my best to sleep.

  • Mission accomplished

    Surviving simply wasn’t enough for Lawrenceburg’s General Cable plant.
    Faced with the daunting reality that telecommunication products — the cables strung between phone poles — were going the way of the dodo bird, employees at the worldwide company’s local plant vowed to be its “last plant standing” — a mission to outperform and outlive its sister plants.

    Journalism established itself on the cornerstone of word economy.
    Find the story.
    Establish the facts.

  • Thrill of victory, agony of defeat

    The Pinewood Derby is much more than a race, according to assistant Cub Master Dean Kendrick of Pack 38.
    “As the leaders of the pack strive to improve the derby each year, we hope the scouts will see that and strive to improve their cars each year.
    “The official Cub Scout motto is ‘Do Your Best,’ and we sincerely hope we are successful in teaching this important life lesson to our scouts,” Kendrick said via e-mail.
