  • Chargers set to extract revenge from Spencer

     MOUNT WASHINGTON – As Kahn said in the Star Trek movies – ‘revenge is a dish best served cold.’

    That will be the mindset this week for the Bullitt East Chargers as the red and gold take on neighboring rival Spencer County. The Bears have started the season 2-1.

    The model, based on a Lattice Boom Crane, earned Beckner his fifth Best of Show ribbon since he began competing in 1999.

  • Can a word really drive someone crazy?

     I guess we’ve always had certain buzz words that meant something.

    As my age advances, I would rather think in the present.

    Maybe it is the age of texting where short messages like OMG or BTW have taken the art out of complete sentences.

    My newest word that just sends shivers down my spine is REALLY.

    It all depends on how you use the word, I guess.

    REALLY? That is that questioning by the other party into something you have said or done.

    REALLY! That is that sense of excitement over an action.
