  • When someone you know is sick, you can feel pretty helpless. Doctors do all the work and, many times, you just sit there wondering what to do.

    Sometimes, instead of feeling helpless, doing little things can help — such as making a fresh bowl of soup.

    Whether it’s a cold or recovery from a stint in the hospital, soup always hits the spot. It’s as if our brains are conditioned to feel better just from smelling the aroma or feeling the warmth as we eat.

    As I stop typing to sneeze, soup sounds pretty good right now.

  • Bestselling author Linwood Barclay visits Barr Memorial Library at Fort Knox at 6 tonight.

  • It’s tempting this time of year to yearn for fall. Rush along, summer, we’ve had enough of your grass-browning, makeup-melting ways.
