  • While waiting for the thaw, find your seeds

    Hot chocolate is cheap! Hats make your hair look good! Boots are the fashionable footwear of choice! All good things that I can think of to make winter more positive in my brain. Think of some for yourself. February is typically the worst weather month for us, so let’s try a shift in our thinking, to make it less miserable.
    I’ve actually been breaking a sweat outside.

  • Be wary of credit check scams

    Credit scores are important because the higher your credit score, the more likely you are to qualify for the most desirable loan rates. Credit scores are often used to determine credit worthiness for home mortgages, car or truck loans and credit card applications.

  • Politicians happy with ‘gravy trains’

    To the editor:
    Over half the politicians on Capitol Hill are millionaires. The majority of them were not millionaires when they were elected to Congress. As they got richer, citizens got poorer. That simple inverse relationship reveals the only real threat to America and our way of life.

  • How does winter 2013-2014 stack up?

    We’re only about half way through February but I thought it would be neat to look at how this winter stacks up to previous winters in central Kentucky. So for perspective, here are a few stats:

  • Best wishes, Ben!
  • Beggars can’t be choosers with pipeline grants

    An extra $50,000 for school safety is a needed $50,000, even if it comes courtesy of the controversial Bluegrass Pipeline.
    A few weeks ago it seemed no public agency in Anderson County would dare touch pipeline money through the Bluegrass Pipeline Community Grant Program.
    Looks like the school district has, and staff has confirmed that applications were submitted late last week for two $25,000 pipeline grants.
    That’s a good thing for the school district, and here’s why.

  • Share your ‘meet cute’ love stories with the News

    In the movies they call it a “meet cute.”
    The beautiful ingénue drops her stack of papers and bumps heads with a stranger as they both kneel to pick up the mess.
    They look up and their eyes meet.
    A relationship, and the plotline of many a romantic comedy, is born.
    Meeting our loved ones for the first time is usually not as adorable, simple or extraordinary as television and the silver screen depicts those moments.

  • With this roasted tomato soup, you won’t miss the canned version

    Comfort food at my house includes tomato soup. However, my favorite isn’t that bland canned tomato soup from the grocery store. Creamy tomato basil soup is easy to make, cheap and tastes great. You can roast the tomatoes, garlic and onions at home which will make your house smell wonderful. Or, you can take a short cut and use canned fire-roasted tomatoes. Either way you make it, creamy tomato basil soup is sure to be popular. Serve it with a turkey or roast beef sandwich, an apple and low-fat milk for a complete meal.
