  • Lady Cats rely on youngsters, beat Oldham

    An already young Lady Cats golf team was even younger last week as its oldest player sat out a home match against Oldham County.

He also wanted to be able to give another of his young players the opportunity to score in a varsity match.

    The move paid off as the Lady Cats pulled out a 219-222 victory over Oldham County at the Henry County Country Club.

  • Portrait artist to do Coach D mural

    Clint Hedges loves doing portrait art.

    Unlike a landscape piece where a tree can be a few inches off from its original spot, a portrait of a grandmother’s face must be exact or Hedges feels like he hasn’t given his client their money’s worth.

    The eyes and nose must be spaced exactly to her true features or the whole picture is off. Hedges loves that kind of challenge.

  • Ensure safety when handling melons

    The recent salmonella outbreak traced to cantaloupes grown in Indiana has many Kentuckians concerned about consuming melons, but it doesn’t necessarily mean that you have to abstain from eating this fresh summer delicacy.  When properly handled, melons can be a safe, satisfying treat.

    Here are some tips on how to safely handle melons:

    • Buy melons from a local, reputable source. The shorter the distance food has to travel from farm to table, the less of a chance that microorganisms have grown on the produce. Microorganisms need time to multiply.
