  • Saving your data in the ‘Cloud’

    So what is this whole “Cloud” thing all about anyway?

  • Dreams of opening salon come true

    Going to a salon can, at times, be intimidating. But, you walk into the Diamond Salon, the atmosphere is relaxed and fun, all because two friends are having fun doing what they love.

    Signe Milby and Mandy Cissell worked together in a salon for 10 years when they decided it was time to open their own. They made plans to open their salon in Cissel’s basement on Stiles Ford Road. Before they could open up shop, Cissal’s home was damaged by the Leap Day tornado in 2012.

    Thought for the week: One small positive thought in the morning can change your whole day.

    Out and about in Hodgenville: Congratulations to Jimmy and Janis Rogers on their 50th wedding anniversary.

    On July 25, I spent the day with good friend Daphne Hatcher in Campbellsville; we ate out at Creek Side. Happened to run into friends Mike and Jean Judd, and it was so great to see them. I talked to Carrie Kidd over the weekend, who told me her brother, Eugene DeSpain of Gray, Tenn., had died on July 17.
