    The holidays are just around the corner, bringing many joyous gatherings and heaps of delicious treats that show up everywhere. Often, we resign ourselves to the many weeks of inevitable indulgence and resolve to get back on track after ringing in the New Year. This year, why not make a resolution now to adopt some healthier habits through the holidays?

  • I am a mumpsimus

    I tried to hold onto what I knew to be absolute truth, but the hardcore facts were staring me in the face.

    I pride myself on my vast knowledge of Barry Manilow lyrics. I became a fan over 30 years ago, at an age when my hearing was intact and my thirst for pop culture knowledge was at its strongest. So, I was a bit surprised when someone stated that “dictuend” is not a word.

    “Oh, yes it is,” I argued. “It means to dictate or orchestrate.”

    “Use it in a sentence,” they challenged.

  • Holiday Hors d’oeuvres

    Holiday season is here, there is not a better time to focus on food like Christmas sweets and Christmas meals. Maybe your memories are of ham, turkey, venison, sauer bratten, tamales, ravioli, pierogies or whatever.

  • Girls Basketball: Lady Colonels fall at Anderson

    LAWRENCEBURG – Anderson County's post-game locker room chat took longer than usual last Tuesday.

    Much longer.

    To be sure, Anderson County was happy with its 49-43 win over regional foe Oldham County.

    It was how the Lady Bearcats closed things out – or, more accurately, did not close them out, on the home court at that – that had Anderson coach Clay Birdwhistell in less than a jovial mood.

    Facing a pesky Marshall University team last month, Louisville coach Rick Pitino was looking for a second-half lineup that could put the game away.

    He also turned to walk-on sophomore guard David Levitch.

    The former North Oldham star played 15 minutes, scoring six points and grabbing two steals in what turned out to be an 85-67 U of L win.
