  • Pick it up and read it!

    By Dr. David B. Whitlock

    No, I don't mean the Bible, although I read it every day.
    But for now, I'm referring to the newspaper.
    "Ahh, the newspaper," you say. "You mean that old dinosaur of the printed era that's somehow managed to stay alive, despite its shrinking advertising revenue and a dwindling subscriber base?"
    Despite rumors of its demise, the newspaper is surviving and in some instances, thriving.

  • Kentucky's gasoline tax to go up 2 cents a gallon on July 1

    Kentucky Press News Service

    Kentucky drivers have seen declining gas prices in recent weeks. But that will change about 2 cents worth starting July 1.

    That's because state law mandates that the gas tax go up 2.1 cents per gallon on that date.

    The increase is automatic since it's tied to the average wholesale price of gas.

    It's estimated the increase will generate about $57 million for Kentucky's road fund.

  • Veggie dishes to try

    By Susan Spicer

    Here are some good recipes for my vegetarian friends. If you're not a meat-eater, you can find yourself without much of a choice at a typical hot dog-hamburger cookout. I always like to have two or three dishes everyone can eat.

  • Edible Flowers Tasty and Pretty

    I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound. I just came home from working at Courtney Farms in Bagdad with a load of vegetables that will be presented to Community Supported Agriculture subscribers for a weekend gathering of shared experiences and shared food. We are combining our farming efforts to bring food to local families and that includes the pretty things that can be added and eaten in the mix.

  • Murder trial delayed until July 30

    The woman accused of using liquid morphine to murder her husband won't face a jury of her peers until July.

    Wise, 61, of 4203 Bengal Road in Campbellsville, was indicted last July by a Taylor County grand jury and charged with the first-degree murder of her husband, Joseph. If convicted, she faces as much as life in prison.

    She has formally pleaded not guilty to the crime, and the prosecution has said it will not seek the death penalty.
