  • There is one professional baseball organization that stands out as the worst over the last 20 years. That organization is the Pittsburgh Pirates. They have endured 19 losing seasons in a row. They have played bad baseball and made questionable trades for many years. Their losing performance is illustrative of a team going in the wrong direction.

    The Pirates have not always been so bad. They have a history of World Series championships and some of the best baseball players have played for them. But for the last 19 years, they have been the worst team in baseball.

  • When telling of a season at Hardin County Playhouse, artistic director Bo Cecil often uses a food analogy, describing the offerings as the various courses of a good meal.

    Such a comparison is fitting for the 40-year-old Hodgenville resident who studied culinary arts at Sullivan University and taught world cuisine classes to high school seniors within a two-hour radius of Louisville. He enjoyed doing so except for one aspect.

    “I hate to drive,” Cecil said.

    HOTTER.  The first week of July was extremely hot with temperatures reaching into the 100s. We take very good care of our outdoor pets but one of them, Nani, got overheated last week and we brought her in the house to cool her down. She now has dug a deep hole in the ground to stay cooler. She looks like she’s in a fox hole. It’s funny how smart animals can be. Give your pets cool fresh water throughout the day. We put ice cubes in ours.

    Hello friends and neighbors. The weather really has been something to write home about, just plain hot, but I guess we will have to live with it. It’s never just right, too hot, too wet, too dry, too windy, or just too coId.
