    Outside of a mark in the win-loss column, there wasn’t much at stake for the Henry County football team in Friday night’s game at Spencer County.

  • A balmy, stress-free Sunday evening

    One of my gurus, a psychiatrist famous in the 1940s and 1950s for his self-help program, wrote that one could take stress in stride by accepting frustration as an expected occurrence in everyday life. “Life is a business of frustrations,” he taught his patients to recite whenever the inevitable occurred. His was not a negative approach to life but rather a realistic one.
