    Arrrgh mates, ye Spelling Bee is near…

    Well, it’s that time of year again when the children are all back in school, the temperatures are slowly headed on a downward spiral, and thoughts of pumpkins and Halloween are right around the corner. However, these are not the only things that are going on at this time of the year. There is another very important event that is about to take place this coming weekend. What event is coming up this weekend? I…

    ‘Weather’ you like it or not, Fall is coming…

    You know that fall will be coming earlier than normal when the calendar still states that it’s August and yet we’re having temperatures more conducive to latter September. At least, this is what the local weatherman seems to be saying for this coming week. The truth is that for the last few weeks the weather has been a little less hot than normal for a month that is traditionally recognized as one of the warmest…

    Stress less in the Summertime

    Summertime and the living is easy…. Never were these words more true to me than at this time of the year. There are so many things that evoke summer to me including: cold, decadent ice cream in almost any flavor, although my preference is towards butter pecan, strawberry, peach, or Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey; the wonderful smell of Hawaiian Tropics suntan lotion; the ability to wear lots of white; the long, drawn-out days where…

    Closed Off Circle 4: A Book Review

    –Corey Wagner   It usually takes until March or April of each year for me to (mostly) catch up on all of the movies I’m interested in from the previous year. Still, I can’t help but be disappointed by the theatrical releases thus far in 2015. Sure, I absolutely loved Ex Machina and Mad Max: Fury Road, but I’m not sure I could even assemble a top 5 list from the first half (and then…

    Junk Jewelry: Vintage, Steampunk, Consignment, Oh My!

    Have you ever seen beautiful jewelry creations in magazines or online and wished that you could create the same types of pieces? I often wish that I had the ability and the time to be able to come up with some of the novel pieces that I see everywhere I look these days. Jewelry is an ever-growing business and one in which you can be as creative or not in what you decide to make.…

    Communication: is it a lost art?

    Throughout time it seems as though the human race has always had a hard time communicating with each other. Whether it is a thousand years ago or just yesterday, there is always something that ends up getting missed in our daily lives that we had good intentions of telling another person. Communication is a tricky thing for certain because sometimes it’s hard to read other people that you come into contact with. However, there are…

    Women and their roles in Kentucky History

There will be a great number of festivities throughout the next year celebrating this momentous occasion in history. The Daviess County Public Library will play a large role in planning and hosting many of these festivities and events. Starting…

    Closed Off Circle V. 3: Fury Road Will Restore Your Faith in the Big-Budget Action Movie

    Corey Wagner This isn’t supposed to work for several reasons. Very few people would consider George Miller a young man at this point in his life (he was in his last 60s during the filming of the movie). The last three movies he directed were Babe: Pig in the City, Happy Feet, and Happy Feet Two. Regardless of your opinion of those films, George Miller hadn’t directed an action movie in 30 years (Mad Max…

    The Kitchen Renovation Project: What you need to know before you start

    “What does an average person need to know before they get started on doing a kitchen update or renovation?” Well, it just so happens that I have a few ideas in mind that I can pass along as part of my own dealings in this matter. I will tell you that I am in no way claiming to be an expert on the subject. However, I can certainly give the general public some thoughts on…
