  • From my grill to yours — the perfect steak

    Cooking engages our most primal instincts.

    The elaborate dance of flame and smoke with glowing coals incites memories of family cookouts, holidays and seasonal nostalgia.

    In my 15 years of working as a professional chef, writing too many menus and standing on my feet for long hours, I never lost the joy from creating and cooking.

    The Shaker Village at Pleasant Hill offers a retreat in time to 19th century living and a scenic landscape to clear one’s head.

    The village has more than 3,000 acres with 34 Shaker buildings, which stand as museum exhibits, overnight lodging for the inn, a restaurant, crafts and gift shops, with barns and corn cribs that are still in use.

    The private nonprofit foundation at Shaker Village continues to preserve and protect the village grounds and offers 40 miles of hiking trails with 1,000 acres of restored native prairie grasses and wildflowers.

  • Peace and quiet?

    When Kathy Jacobs and her husband moved to Henry County 16 years ago, they found the quiet and tranquility they’d been looking for.

  • McClamroch retires after 34 years

    Donna McClamroch always knew she wanted to be a teacher.

    As a child, she loved playing school. When she grew into an adult, she brought that love for teaching to Eminence 34 years ago.

    McClamroch graduated from Valley Station High School in Louisville — a school with an average of 400 seniors, much larger than Eminence’s graduating senior class of 33.

    While doing undergrad work at Western Kentucky University, she came home with a sorority sister from Henry County and attended a local wedding.

  • For the Love of the Game

    This spring I was covering a Henry County Lady Cat softball game as well as a baseball game and track meet. I came to the softball game after it had already started and I was scrambling to get in position and get the camera settings right.

    The Lady Cats’ opponents had a runner on first and I was anticipating a stolen base attempt so I focused on the base runner as the pitch was delivered to the plate. I had guessed right. The runner did indeed attempt to steal second base.
