Tips On How To Help With the Eastern Kentucky Flood Relief

On Thursday, July 28th, many people in Eastern Kentucky woke up to devastating floods that tore through the region. Sadly, we lost 37 lives due to the flooding and loved ones are still missing. The flooding has torn families apart and left many stranded, but Kentuckians are strong and have banded together to help one another pull through this disaster. If you are looking to donate to the relief fund, here are some ways you can help.

Governor Beshear has stated that a monetary donation and gift cards are the most helpful at this time. Gift cards to Walmart, Kroger, and other grocery stores will help those impacted to buy groceries and other necessities they are currently without. The Governor has also discouraged people from donating clothing because there isn’t a need at this time. Plus, it takes up too much space with little to no storage available. Anyone with trade skills such as construction, plumbing, and electrical work are encouraged to reach out to help in...

Governor Beshear Signs NIL Orders, What is Kentucky’s Future?


By Taylor Hatton


           Yesterday afternoon Kentucky Governor, Andy Beshear, signed an executive order, banning colleges in the state of Kentucky from restricting student athletes from receiving fair compensation for their name, image, and likeness. The controversial law will be going into effect July 1st, and comes just a couple of days after the monumental Supreme Court ruling in the case National College Athletic Association v. Alston, in which the Court decided in a 9-0 decision that the NCAA could not withhold relatively small payments to student athletes. Now for context, the Supreme Court case was in reference to items such as books, laptops, and other educational needs, but the collegiate sports world all knew it was just a matter of time before the big changes started to happen.

Bearnaise on French Fries? Yes, Please!


The last time I had an ample helping of béarnaise sauce was on a piece of red meat. I’ve always been a huge fan of the delicious, buttery sauce, so when I saw the Béarnaise Truffle Fries on Carson’s Food and Drink menu, it took only seconds for me to decide on the location of our next Foodie Friday lunch. We chose Anne Hart Cornett to be our special guest because she’s so much fun, and like us, appreciates a good meal. We were happy to discover that her husband, Eric, is practically a gourmet chef, so her vast knowledge of good food would serve us well.
