  • Jesus: the ultimate script flipper

    It was a warm summer night in a town near Washington, D.C.

    A group of friends sat around a backyard table eating dinner when a young man with a gun appeared and interrupted the dinner party, according to a 2016 NPR story.

    “Give me your money or I’m going to start shooting,” he said, pointing the gun at one of the women.

    The people believed him; however, no one had any money on them.

    So, they started talking to the man, first trying to play on his guilt: “What would your mother think about you doing this?”

  • Corn is harvested in July and August in Kentucky

    For some of us, eating fresh corn off the cob is one of our top summertime, food-related experiences. Corn is one of the many great offerings at the Carroll County Farmers Market this month.

    Farmers harvest corn in July and August in Kentucky. You can boil, steam, roast, microwave or grill it. It is naturally sweet so try to avoid using butter, salt or other seasonings that make it unhealthy. Instead, flavor with fresh lemon or lime juice, or season it with fresh herbs like thyme, paprika, garlic powder or black pepper.

So Cameron Darnold had his cap shot numerous times as shown in the picture. Luke Heveline also had a perfect score and did not wear a cap so his cap will be shot by the team members next Sunday.
