    Indigo Buntings flit by and two fawns trail a doe into the woods through the roadside blooms of Periwinkle and Queen Anne’s Lace.

    Those are just some of the fauna and flora that may greet newcomers on the road to Kentucky State University’s Environmental Education Center in southeastern Henry County.

    Drive down two miles of gravel road off U.S. 421 at the 17-mile marker and there lies 300 acres of protected Kentucky wild lands.

  • It’s the little ‘guilts’ that get you

    Opening the refrigerator this morning to get cream for my coffee, I saw IT again on the second shelf near the back.

    It is a half of a honeydew melon that for some reason has no sweetness. I made myself finish the first piece for breakfast two days ago and then I ate another slice for a pick-me-up that afternoon, but I just can’t bring myself to eat any more of it and, as my husband has no interest, it sits there in the refrigerator.

  • Lindsey Bevill and Vincent Vaughn win titles

    Lindsey Bevill dominated the field and Vincent Vaughn squeezed past it over the weekend at the Henry County Country Club Championships.

    Bevill, a high school regional champion for Carroll County a few years back, held a six-stroke lead after the first day on Saturday, then stretched it to nine on Sunday for a 10-over-par 154.

    Choctaw Jim’s on U.S. 421 has been a suburban Campbellsburg fixture for many years. The store is packed to the rafters with Native American jewelry, western wear, motorcycle gear and handcrafted furniture.

    Last Saturday, Choctaw Jim Thompson stepped out of the box to bring a whole new dynamic to the store by introducing Perry Joe “P.J.” Gabbard, a 34-year old Cherokee entertainer to Henry County.
