  • Sometimes, two people look at the same thing at the same time and come up with two totally different opinions about what they see. How is that possible? It is possible because we all have a different perception of things.

    Once we find out our sighting is different from others, that normally is where the trouble begins. By trouble, I mean we forget to agree to disagree.

  • On May 16, members of the Radcliff Woman’s Club helped local community leaders start their day off right at Colvin Community Center. Members catered a meal for the Breakfast Club, a partner organization of the Hardin County Chamber of Commerce and the North Hardin County Advisory Council.

  • In the agriculture field, fathers and sons often work together on the farm. While retaining individual farming interest, Larry Jaggers Sr. and Larry Jaggers Jr. plow common ground in row crop production.

    For the elder Jaggers, 69, farming began when he was a child then grew into a career in the spring of 1962. He had a dairy farming business for almost 50 years but now he raises beef cattle and farms crops with his son.

    Jaggers Sr. remembers farming with his dad near the end of the horse-drawn era, before tractors became the farming standard.


    This professional baseball season has a special component built in. This is the year the Mariano Rivera, 43, has announced he will retire from baseball.

    Rivera is no ordinary baseball player. Many people consider him to be the best closing pitcher in the history of baseball. A closer is a pitcher who comes into a tight baseball game usually in the ninth inning to close out the game. That is, finish the game and preserve the lead that his team has established.

    I am so tired tonight I can barely keep my eyes open. As some of you know, I do daycare in my home. Today I had three there, all younger than 2 years old. When I wasn’t saying “No, no” I was changing diapers or making bottles. I love my job and I love my kids, but some days I wonder about my career choices. Oh well, a hot shower will make me feel a lot better and then on to bed to tackle tomorrow.
