  • Herbs, hummingbird events at Yew Dell in August

  • Roll out those hazy, crazy, lazy days of summer

    Since boyhood, the lazy, hazy days of summer have been hubby’s favorite season, but in his grown-up world, he is typically out of the country from June through August. So, when a job was recently postponed, he wanted to fill the unexpected time home with as much summer fun as possible. We have crammed so many activities into the past two weeks that I feel like I’ve been in a time-warp dreamland and any minute now I am going to wake up exhausted.

  • Love and remember your pets

    My wife Kathy and I love our dogs. In fact, it’s a three dog night at our home. We have a lhasa apso (Sadie), a Cavalier King Charles spaniel (Stella) and a maltipoo tripod (Tigger). Over the years we have had four poodles (Niki, T-Bear, Toby and Tucker) and a lhasa (Sassy). I like to say that dog is just God spelled backwards.

  • Uncle Bob: Adding some new flavor to your summer meals

    My appreciation for food started when I was very young. I grew up exposed to great food from my Italian grandmother and German Irish food from my other grandmother. My mother cooked with an American and international flare. Family gatherings were about fun and really great food.

  • YMCA buys indoor arena, land

    After leasing a nearby indoor arena for the last 10 years, the Oldham County YMCA in Buckner has purchased the building and the property it sits on for $1.3 million.

    Peggy Kilgore, the executive director of the Oldham County YMCA, said it just made sense to purchase a building next to its main facility that is heavily used for YMCA programs anyway.

    And with the building needing some renovations, it made sense to own the facility before making those renovations, she said.

  • Hope Health Clinic expands its services in La Grange

     

    When Hope Health Clinic opened its doors in La Grange in 2011, the affordable clinic was home to six local physicians and a nurse practitioner. Today, the clinic has a team of ten physicians and nurses caring for the needs of those who are indigent, without insurance or underinsured.

    New to the clinic is the cutting edge service of gene testing. This tests patients’ genes to find the most effective medicine for their illness.

  • City elections deadline near

    With only a few days left until the filing deadline, many of Oldham’s city governments are heading toward re-election by default.

    Mayor and city council positions in Goshen, Crestwood, Pewee Valley and Orchard Grass as well as School Board districts 2 and 5 are on the November general election ballot. And with an Aug. 12 4 p.m. deadline looming, as of Monday only incumbents had filed for election to those offices.
