  • A Mary and Joseph kind of Christmas

    Stepping outside onto our back patio, the frigid early morning air startles me, smacking my cheeks like a trainer popping the face of a prizefighter, making sure the boxer is fully conscious.

    Moments before, I had been inside listening to the news reports: the murders in San Bernardino, Calif., were likely the result of a terrorist attack, the newscaster reports, and this on the heels of the murders in Colorado, Springs, Col., at a Planned Parenthood Clinic, and just a few days before that, the terrorist attack in Paris, France.

  • Lakes to benefit from recycling Christmas trees


    When the presents are unwrapped and the lights and tinsel are removed, the Christmas tree is not such a beautiful sight.

    But even when it’s just a plain old tree again, there’s still some good use for it, according to the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife. The department is collecting used Christmas trees after the holiday to help do away with them for consumers, but also to help lakes across Kentucky, including Green River Lake here in Taylor County.
