  • Princess DIaries

    Isn't it so like God to ruin a good bout of cynicism? For a few months I've been down on religion. Very bah humbug and all, struggling to get to church on time, or at all for that matter.

    Most often, I'd detour into Wal-Mart and dawdle in the shampoo or office supply aisle. Then I'd get to church late and sit not in my usual place in the front but way in the back off to the side where I'd hope to be invisible.

    The problem is the people at my church are all so dang friendly that it's difficult to not reciprocate. But I'd give it my best shot.

  • Morel mushrooms should be popping up

    Morel mushrooms should be popping up soon. This year's wet late winter and early spring should lead to a good mushroom crop if warm, sunny days appear over the next few weeks.

    Veteran "shroomers" say a late snow also forecasts more morels, and we met that qualification this year. Hopefully, this will be a good mushroom season as the past several have been less than bountiful.

  • Housing Authority named tops in state

    The award is based on high performance in all aspects of a housing authority's practice and procedures.

  • Separation crashes the party

    They've been up to their elbows in Jell-O together. They've played musical chairs together. They've shared pizza together. And they've signed each other's T-shirts. The only difference was the color pen they used: red or purple.

    For the past 21 years, Project Graduation has been the one time our local high school students get together for a combined celebration. On this one special night, all the rivalries of the past four years seemed to take a back seat to fun.

  • Seaborne graduates from U.S. Army Infantry School

The recruit developed combat skills and handled various weapons available to the infantry soldier.

  • Tigers take us on a fun ride

    Winding up an improbable run at a national title on Monday, the Campbellsville University Tigers left Kansas City with their heads held high.

    After all, the Tigers went farther than any other Campbellsville University basketball team in history - to the semifinals of the national championship tournament.

    Coach Keith Adkins said there will still be smiles on their faces.
