  • It’s tornado season in the Midwest

    This is the time of the year when cold Arctic air frequently meets warm Gulf air thereby spawning the tornados that plague the Midwest. Kentucky gets its share, which concerns me. Growing up in New York, there just weren’t any tornados. The Wizard of Oz afforded the sum total of my knowledge about those swirling winds and I was quite impressed at an early age by their capacity for destruction. Since then, I lived in Kansas long enough to gain serious firsthand knowledge.

    General Manager

    After a brutal loss at Spencer County, it could have been an easy thing for the Eminence High School softball team to hang its head.

    But not these Lady Warriors, not this time.

    Waves and waves of color welcome visitors to the Henry County High School greenhouse, and all that color is for sale.

    Agriculture teacher Lindsey Cottrell said sales were slow in the beginning. “We started off in quite a bit of a hole,” she said. “It (the greenhouse) takes a lot of money to run.”

    Pointing out ferns and flowers dangling in baskets overhead, Cottrell said hanging basket purchases improved sales last week.
