Kentucky Afield Outdoors

FRANKFORT, Ky. - Meteorologists called the recent cold snap that sent air temperatures plummeting to subzero levels all over the Ohio Valley a "Polar Vortex." Old timers used to call Arctic winds "severe cold fronts" or "freezes," but Polar Vortex sounds much sexier.

It froze the ground hard, burst water pipes, numbed fingers, increased heating bills and generally caused misery across Kentucky.

WKU researcher using basil to combat cancer

Dr. Chandra Emani and students are genetically engineering basil to produce more eugenol, a compound with medicinal value and is believed to help control breast cancer. 'Plants are a storehouse of chemicals which can treat anything that's inflamed. Inflammation is the basis for cancer so if we can find plant based treatment it may not be painful medical process anymore. It's just we have this plant we can include in the diet at the very early stages and ward off inflammation that would otherwise lead to cancer.' - Dr. Chandra Emani

Now there's proof that, yes, The Ski Train, was real

Thanks to Historian/Photo curator Larry Smith

Peggy Fudge writes:
Thanks to Larry Smith for sharing the photo of the Ski Train. Some years ago, I mentioned it to a few friends who thought I'd made it up. These were local people about my age- I guess they lived a sheltered life and didn't get out much. Then I asked the right person to subtantiate my memory. Turned out this Green County friend not only remembered the Ski Train, she worked on it one summer. - Peggy Fudge

Finances were good. All bills were paid. And the City Council was Pedestrian Conscious - with many rods of sidewalks decreed.
Click on headline for complete story

By JIM

The piece went on to observe that while the work done in 1908 "for the public good" had not been phenomenal, it was "a decided advance over other years and of such a nature as to be permanent and invigorating to the citizens of Columbia."
