  • Moonlighting teacher setting fashion trend

    Leslie Husley, is a resident of Anderson County and a family and consumer science teacher at Martha Layne Collins High School in Shelbyville, who turned a hobby into a business when she founded her company, Sweet Southern Stacks.

    “I started because I fell in love with the name brand of these bangles,” said Husley. “I am a teacher, and you know teachers make no money, so I decided I wanted to see if I could make these and taught myself using a pint glass and a YouTube video.”

  • Frankfort woman giving unwanted items a second chance to shine

    Sherri Locke developed a passion for working with stained glass 15 years ago, and a few years back channeled her creativity into giving “castaway” items a second chance.

  • Grandmother reminds us to not forget the love

    Loyal readers of the food column:

    I apologize for not providing an article for close to a month. I have been saying goodbye to an amazing woman, 700 miles away.

    My grandmother Irene passed away last week at 96 years old. She was the matriarch of our family and will be missed terribly. In true Irish stubbornness, she fought hard for weeks to stay with those she loved. I spent a great deal of time with her growing up, so it was fitting to be there at the end. Surrounded by her eight children, we shared stories, memories and of course recipes.

  • God’s love is answer for our strife-filled nation

    God’s love is answer for our strife-filled nation

    A couple of weeks ago, I made a comment in this column around the graduating students at Notre Dame turning their backs on Vice President Mike Pence as he was speaking about civility, and political correctness at their graduation exercises.

    I am sure that you know about the shooting of well-known lawmaker Steve Scalise while he was at practice for a charity baseball game.

    These law makers were targeted by James Hodgkinson, allegedly because they are Republicans.

  • The buck stops here in sports, too

    I wonder what Harry Truman would have thought about that press conference the University of Louisville held last week.

    You know, the one after the NCAA announced its verdict on the stripper scandal.

    For those who think anything that went on before ESPN is ancient history, Truman was the 33rd President of the United States. He approved the use of the atomic bomb to end World War II and fired Gen. Douglas McArthur in Korea.

    And whether he was praised or pounded in the press, the buck stopped with him.

  • Peach receives honor named for legendary coach

    Mark Peach is far too young to remember Blanton Collier, but he knows what kind of record the legendary coach forged at the University of Kentucky and with the Cleveland Browns.

    It was a record of excellence, highlighted five divisional title and the 1964 NFL Championship with the Browns. At Kentucky from 1954-1961, Collier posted a 41-36-3 record and was the last Wildcat coach to have a career winning slate.

    And Collier did it with class and an emphasis on sportsmanship.
