    A matter of time

    It’s just a matter of time you know

    Til your joints begin to creak,

    And you have to work much harder

    For that youthful look you seek.

    Yes, once you were so slender,

    Now those clothes no longer fit.

    You exercise with vigor

    But your body wants to quit.

    It’s just a matter of time you know

    Til your skin begins to sag.

    Wrinkles soon will find your face

    And your energy seems to lag.

  • GUEST COLUMN/Stuart Sanders: Speed to burn: Kentucky’s pioneering aviator Willa Brown Chappell

    Mary Ellis, one of the last surviving female pilots from World War II, died on July 25 at age 101.

    A member of Great Britain’s Royal Air Force, Ellis delivered fighter planes and bombers from factories to air bases.  She is estimated to have flown more than 1,000 Spitfires, Hurricanes, Lancaster bombers and other aircraft during the war.

    These were, however, no simple deliveries. Ellis faced constant danger, including German fighters and friendly fire. She also once suffered a crash landing when her Spitfire’s landing gear jammed.

  • MY WORD/Ken Pratt: Let me tell you a story

    Do you know how to tell the difference between a fairy tale and a lie? A fairy tale starts out, “Once upon a time…” and a lie starts out, “This is the truth, no BS…”

  • WHAT WE THINK: Horse Show, back to school shouldn’t fall on same days

    The Shelbyville Horse Show is our county’s marquee event, and not just for our equine friends.

    The dinners, the dresses, the hats – we pull out all the stops.

    Opening night brings out the dignitaries and politicians, all eager to shake hands and meet their constituents.

    Families bustle through, eager to see friends and watch the horses. We’re all back from summer vacations, full of tales from the road and fresh tans.

    Guns, NRA not to blame

    The letter by Becky Simpson (“How do we stop these senseless deaths” on page A4 of the Feb. 28 issue of The Sentinel-News) contains 15 questions, some of which I can answer.
