Dinky Phipps, new head coach for the Lynn Camp Wildcats, speaks at his official announcement on Friday.

The big news was announced earlier last week, but Phipps was formally introduced as Lynn Camp’s new basketball head coach at an official announcement held at the school’s library on Friday.

“Obviously, we’re very excited,” said Anthony Pennington, Principal of Lynn Camp Schools. “We want to set the bar high and keep moving forward and I want our students to know that we won’t settle for anything other than having the best, and being the best we can be.”

This year Lynn Camp is hosting the District and All-A tournaments and Pennington tells what he foresees when that time comes around.

Bake like Betty Crocker?

Kristy Dean Cole  Confession of a Baking Queen

Confession of a Baking Queen

I pride myself on being a keeper of random knowledge and fun facts. It’s something I acquired from my dad, he could throw some zingers at ya’ whether it related to survival, livestock, or a “man with common sense” factoids. Yes, I remember most and have gained some of my own along the way.

If you’re around me long enough, I like to share my own daily fun facts. Here is one that may make you drop your cookie sheet. Betty Crocker was not a real person! Shocked? I admit, I was. Sadly, she was created as an advertising gimmick to appeal to the masses of homemakers that prided themselves as queens of the kitchen. In 1924, taking it a step further, they gave her a voice as she was portrayed by an unknown actress and broadcasted over the radio. She would offer tips and recipes, and women everywhere fell in love with her.

When looking for something quick, I still turn to Betty Crocker cake mix, but I want to make my own name in the kitchen and with my family and friends, I already have. Want to share a recipe? Email kdcole1120@gmail.com

Planting seeds for the future

“There’s nothing local about California.”

Grant Baker, like many of the famers in Knox County, would like to see stores to carry locally grown – as in Kentucky and particularly Knox County grown – produce, rather than produce shipped from as far away as Florida or even California.

Gardening, he said, is becoming a lost art.
