    Jan Aaron said she was devastated when an old stand of pine trees recently was chopped down on the banks of Lake Jericho.

    When I was growing up in the 1950s on an upstate New York farm, a henhouse full of chickens supplied our family with eggs.  Still vivid in my memory are the special mailing cartons my mother used to send farm-fresh eggs 150 miles south to friends near New York City, perhaps because I was always amazed – and still am – that the eggs did not break en route.

  • Lady Warriors split Spencer, Riverside double header

    In what was supposed to be just one game Saturday afternoon, two different opponents showed up which left the Eminence girls’ basketball team playing a double header against Spencer County and Riverside Christian.
