  • Bizarros dot landscape

    We live in a Bizarro world. Back in the 1960s, there was a Superman comic book series, “Tales of the Bizarro World.”

    Bizarro Superman lived on Htrae, a square planet where alarm clocks dictated when people went to sleep, ugly was beautiful and upside down and backwards were normal. All Bizarros were imperfect duplicates of other living things; they were illiterate and spoke with poor grammar.

  • CRITTENDEN CHRISTIAN

    After more than 40 years of not having a full-time minister, some congregations might give up on the idea. But that wouldn’t be in keeping with the motto of the Crittenden Christian (Disciples of Christ) Church: “With God, all things are possible.”

    Their congregation of around 40 people embarked on a three-year campaign to raise more than $150,000 in commitments to the church.

    One dilemma facing many aspiring vegetable gardeners is sub-prime soil. Compacted, clay soil is not uncommon in Kentuckiana, but it is especially common in newer developments.

  • ‘Amazing Race’ is safe alternative to after prom

    Two years ago when her son didn’t have any place to go after his senior prom, Kim Haubner of Dry Ridge approached leaders at Sherman Church of Christ with an idea.

    The church could host an scavenger hunt based on the “Amazing Race” television show where teens are driven around the community by responsible adults and asked to do challenges such as find their team sign in a hayfield or buy a meal for a less fortunate family. The event was so popular, drawing 17 teams last year, Haubner was asked to organize another such event for this weekend.

  • Hair today, gone tomorrow

    I was contemplating what my personal involvement would be for this year’s Relay for Life event. As I drove on U.S. 25 heading for the Hogan House, I remembered the joyful faces of a couple children who had been going through cancer treatments and who had lost all their hair. They were making the best of a terrible situation. The hair loss is a well known part of cancer treatment and people handle it in different ways.
