  • There’s an evil presence that lingers on my desk each and every day. It has the power to stop all productivity, erase any work done during the day and cause frustration beyond belief.

    There’s evil there that does not sleep. OK, maybe that’s a quote about Mordor in “The Fellowship of the Ring” but I think it still applies to my computer.

  • Gary Broadway of Vine Grove recently harvested a pumpkin that weighed more than 200 pounds.



    Well, it is that time of year again. The family room is filled with comforters and matching pillows, miniature refrigerators, milk crates, computers, boom boxes, TVs, floor rugs. I think you get the picture. It is time for your baby to move to a college campus.

    It is a bittersweet moment at the end of summer, and then it hit me like a ton of bricks.

  • The farm at 18 House Lane in Elizabethtown does not lack foliage, flowers or special garden features.
