  • Kitchen Adventures: A coconut cheesecake fit for an Easter dessert

    When you think of an Easter meal, a few constants come to mind such as ham, deviled eggs and an assortment of traditional side dishes.

    When I think of Easter dinner, some sort of coconut dessert is usually a must. A beautiful light and fluffy coconut cake with jelly beans on top is a favorite and coconut pie is absolutely delicious.

    Honestly, I only recently discovered a taste for coconut. As my tastes have changed with age, it’s become a  favorite flavor. And, I love the smell of coconut.

  • Dealing with DUIs

    ISSUE: Recent DUI arrests of public officials
    OUR VIEW: Reaction should be tempered

    What conduct should be expected of a public servant, particularly in their downtime? Are community leaders ever “off duty” in that sense?

    Community expectation may vary but questions have arisen following recent arrests of the school superintendent and a deputy county coroner in LaRue County. In the same week, each was arrested and charged with driving under the influence by the Hodgenville Police Department.

  • My first comic con

    A few weekends ago, I boldly went where so many other nerds had gone before: comic con. It wasn’t the big one held in San Diego each year, but it still had some big-name guest and lots of excitement.

    I didn’t cosplay — dress up like a character — but did spend several days deciding which sci-fi T-shirt to wear. I finally picked one featuring Marvel character Loki, mainly because I have a slight crush on the actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston. The friend who went with me wore a TARDIS dress.
