    When Janeen Lewis took her then-boyfriend/now-husband Jesse home to meet her parents for the first time, she never imagined that story would end up in a Chicken Soup for the Soul anthology titled “Family Matters.”

  • BOYS' BASKETBALL: Oldham Co. gets slight nod in wacky region

    If you had any doubt about how wacky the quest for Eighth Region supremacy is expected to be in 2011, just check out a copy of The Cats' Pause Yearbook.

  • EDITORIAL: When it comes to websites, what’s ours is actually yours

    We’ve been making a big deal lately about our new website — or at least we’ve been trying to.
    Most of the feedback we’ve received has been positive, and we’ll be the first to say it’s a lot better than where we were before.
    However, one thing we haven’t been making nearly enough fuss over is how much this website isn’t so much ours as it is yours.
    Yes, we provide the content, but what makes for a successful website is the interaction that takes place on it.

  • COLUMN: Serious reasons to be thankful this Turkey day

    A couple weeks ago, I wrote a semi-sarcastic column in the spirit of the season being thankful for the time change.
    Last week, I got pretty serious reflecting on recent happenings with my father.
    This week, it’s time to combine the two and get thankful for some serious things.
    In a span of seven days, my father had a heart attack, my husband’s grandmother was diagnosed with cancer for the second time and my husband had a car accident.

  • COLUMN: Thirsty ground may get a drink this winter

    Happy Thanksgiving to you all. As we wrap up November, we can look at a few signs for our winter forecast. Benjamin Franklin wrote Poor Richard’s Almanac and in it he used the signs of nature to predict the coming weather.
    One of the signs he used was the length of time the leaves held onto the trees. The longer they stayed, the worse the winter. We still have leaves hanging on to many trees. Another sign was the temperature in November. A warm November foretells a cold winter.
