  • As many LaRue Countians experienced last week, there can be major damage from spring thunderstorms.

    Tornadoes form thousands of feet above the earth’s surface usually during warm, humid, unsettled weather and in conjunction with a severe thunderstorm.  Along with rain, dust and debris sucked into the center of the air column form the distinct funnel shape. Wind speeds, ranging from 40 to more than 300 mph (categories 1-5), can be extremely destructive.

  • Build two houses from the same set of blueprints and they should be identical. Right?

    Then, why is it, when a male and female insect of the same species have identical genetic blueprints, one is always larger than the other?

  • With short blasts, the airbrush gun sprayed bursts of red paint on the blue and white surface of the bag. Moments later, Janet Brown arranged potato chips near the open bag so the chips appeared to be spilling out.

    But the chips were not real potato chips. They were specially shaped dried fondant pieces and were part of her cake, which looked like a bag of chips.

    “When I work with cakes, I work with the real thing,” Brown said. She had put a real potato chip bag beside her chocolate cake to use as a model for her cake sculpting.
