  • Finally acknowledging God hunger

    By Nancy Kennedy, Faith Columnist

    We were eating pizza — thin crust, perfectly crisp, topped with ooey gooey decadent cheesy goodness that was just the right degree of meltiness.

    As our eyes rolled back in our heads in pizza ecstasy, my friend Tara said she had recently read that the sign of a culture in decline is its glorification of its cuisine and deification of its chefs.

    Bobby Flay and Wolfgang Puck anyone?

  • Man airlifted following wreck in Tyrone

    A 19-year-old man had to be airlifted to an area hospital after the car he was driving struck a phone pole and tree around 4:15 this afternoon on Bishop Street in Tyrone.

    Marcus Beasley sustained head and chest injuries after his car veered off Bishop Street. It sideswiped a phone pole, continued on and struck a tree just several yards in front of a child’s swingset.

    Witnesses said he was driving much too fast for the narrow street when his car missed a curve and crashed.

  • Covington Catholic dominates, ends Anderson season

    Host Covington Catholic exploded in the third quarter, scoring 20 unanswered points, on its way to a 47-21 romp over Anderson County in the first round of the Class 5A state playoffs Friday night. The game was played at Dixie Heights High School.

    Anderson saw its season end at 5-6, the Bearcats' first losing season since 2005. Covington Catholic, a deceptive 4-7, moves on to play at Madison Southern in the second round of the playoffs.

  • Records mean little as second season is here

    Anderson County sits on a 5-5 record. Covington Catholic, a perennial football power, saw its football team end the regular season at 3-7.

    As far as either team is concerned, they are 0-0.

    That kind of viewpoint might be considered a cliché, but it really rings true. When the ball is teed up Friday, the only bearing that the just completed regular season can have is on where a game will be played.

  • Trade Agreement could put tobacco producers at a disadvantage

    The United States, along with 11 other nations (Australia, Brunei, Canada, Chile, Japan, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Peru, Singapore, and Vietnam) recently approved provisions in the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) trade agreement, which could potentially impact consumers in about 40 percent of the world’s economy.

  • Get your last minute chores done before cold weather sets in

    Happy November! We’re one month closer to summer! Well, that what’s on my mind anyway.

    As we enjoy this Indian summer like weather this week, may I remind you that the Old Farmer’s Almanac is calling for snow by Nov. 11. That ought to get you out of the house and into those last minute chores.

    Keep getting those leaves off the lawn or chop them up with the mower. Take advantage of sales at the garden centers. Cut those mature mums back to the ground. Mulch those strawberry plants. Remove weak stems from your roses. Whew!
