  • The term “staycation” is a way of describing a vacation that doesn’t involve traveling out of the country or, by some definitions, out the home environment. Often, it involves day trips.

    That might be a bit of a misnomer for what I took last week because I didn’t seem to stay anywhere for long, so I might have to come up with another term.

  • Call me obsessive but the herbs in my garden are in this order from south to north: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme. I know, pitiful isn’t it?

    But there are more — oregano, dill, chives, spearmint and basil. When I started the garden several years ago, I thought it was just neat and small pots of herbs weren’t terribly expensive.

  • In October of 2010, Western Kentucky University student Stephanie “Wolf Pack of 1” Maloney went to her first roller derby bout. She fell in love.

    It was the last bout of the season for the Vette City Roller Derby of Bowling Green.

    “I showed up the next day to start practicing and haven’t stopped since,” said Maloney, of Radcliff.

    A John Hardin High School graduate, Maloney laces up her skates and straps on her helmet and pads to battle it out in the rink.

  • In my 52 years, I’ve been scared of a lot of things and situations.

    But, why? I think it is called lacking faith in myself.

    I remember as a child, I was scared to death of the dark. It was really silly because I shared a room with my sister, Kim, and my parents’ room was a scream away. I think I had convinced myself I was seeing monsters and things were going bump in the night. I later found out the bump in the night was just our house settling.
