More Home Remedies

A while back I wrote about home remedies. There was such a good response from readers and I have since learned more, so I wanted to share these new ones with you, too. Please remember that all the remedies mentioned are hearsay and not intended to replace your doctor’s care. Use...

Forgiveness from a Stranger

Going to the Lane Theatre and the Dixie Drive-In with my friends, when I was a teenager, was so much fun, and one of my favorite past-times. I have many fond memories at both places. I’ve written about the theaters before, which are both closed and have been for years, b...

Eat What Nature Gave Us

Driving through Corbin last week, I noticed in the green grassy areas in the city, the beautiful, bright bursts of yellow that are everywhere! Each year, dandelions announce spring with their pure sunshiny color, and what do we do? We all rush to mow them down like they are not...

Get Help for Addiction, Abuse or Suicidal Thoughts

Alcohol and drug addiction has risen 13 percent, and overdoses have spiked, since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. Substance abuse problems have roots going back thousands of years, but the traumatic isolation and extra stress created by the COVID lockdowns, and widespread...

Cast-iron cookware is making a comeback!

What pan do you use to bake your cornbread? Can you use that same pan to fry eggs, brown a steak, sauté onions, or bake a cake? Well, if you use cast-iron cookware, you probably do. Cast-iron cookware is the most durable and dependable cookware one can own, and at one time, it...

Snipe Hunting

A young person asked me the other day about snipe hunting. I snickered as my mind went back to when I was a young girl, and I remembered hearing of a young teenager who visited from the city and was taken out snipe hunting. I was curious about it. I later found out what it was,...

Popular Cornmeal Makes A Return

(Column by Teresa Brooks) Around Thanksgiving time last year, I ran across a long-lost grocery store item at Food City in Middlesboro that I hadn’t been able to find locally for many years. Three Rivers brand cornmeal was like a tradition in southern cooking. Used for over 75...

Frozen britches and bare bottoms

Well, I think we can officially say fall is over as it is getting close to the middle of November and I know the bitterly cold weather is coming, whether I like it or not. Truthfully, I am not and never have really been too fond of winter, and as I get older, I like it even less....

Hauntings of Fall

In October, when the days start getting shorter and darkness overtakes the land, people’s minds sometimes plays tricks on them and they think they see things that may not necessarily be what they think they are. Such is the case, I believe, of the Mulberry Black Thing. If you’ve...
