  • COLUMN: 'Best if used by': Is this food safe to eat?

    Many food packages have a date on them, along with the words “sell by,” “best if used by” or “use by.” This information can be confusing. Does it mean that the food is unsafe to eat if the date has passed? Do you need to throw it away? Most often, the answer to those questions is “No.” “Sell by,” “best by,” and “use by” dates are used to ensure good food quality. They are not safety dates.

    Deer. To some, they are beautiful animals. To out-of-state sportsmen, Kentucky Whitetails are the stuff of which dreams are made. To farmers here in the Commonwealth, though, they are often a nuisance or worse, gobbling their way through soybean fields at a rapid and alarming rate.

    It may surprise you to know that the Bible, which is filled with the creation of the universe, Heaven and Hell, the death and resurrection of Jesus, also speaks of a human emotion - worry.

    Jesus said in Matthew 6:31, "Do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?'"

  • I-65 cleared as dig-out continues

    Just past noon on Thursday, Carl Hester rolled down the window of his minivan, exhausted and impatient after spending a long night stranded in deep snow with hundreds of other motorists on a rural, hilly stretch of Interstate 65 north of Elizabethtown, Ky.

    He and his fiance, sleeping beside him, were traveling from northern Ohio to Texas for a relative's surgery Wednesday night when the storm dumped up to 21 inches of snow, jackknifing trucks, sending cars sliding and turning the highway into a dark, frozen parking lot.
