Good morning and thanks for joining us on this fine Saturday. Today we celebrate the original performance-enhancing substance, the OG that preceded steroids, human growth hormone, testosterone boosters and all others. Today is National Spinach Day, so feel free to eat a can of that green junk that turned Popeye a butt-kicking machine.
If your palate is a little more evolved, however, there are better, tastier ways to eat spinach.
We’ve got plenty of good content set to come your way today, including reports from local athletics as well as the rundown from yesterday’s Russell County Hospital Board meeting, where Scott Thompson was announced as the institution’s new CEO (effective May 1).
Just before 6 a.m., it’s a brisk 38 degrees at The County Line’s Adair County office in Columbia, with an identical reading on the thermometer at company headquarters in Russell Springs. Expect it to remain cool throughout the day, topping out at around 50 degrees, with occasional sunshine. It’s expected to be especially windy today, specifically from late-morning through early afternoon.
We’re wishing a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY today to Kayla Kelsay. As always, readers are encouraged to send additions to our birthday and anniversary calendars. Email us at email@example.com to get your special dates added to the list.
