Capstone: Germantown Baseball Inc. is a thriving little league community

Bradshaw Book

If you need a sign that little league baseball is alive and well in the city of Louisville, look no further than Germantown Baseball Inc.

The baseball park is located on St. Xavier’s high school campus on Poplar Level road. It features five different playing fields, top notch concessions, playground, pavilion and mature tree canopy that provides shade on hot summer days.

Make a trip to Germantown and the place oozes a familial atmosphere. Along with the kids playing on the baseball field, children of all ages run about the park playing wall-ball or tag on the playground.

One of the children’s most amusing activities involves chasing after foul balls. If you bring a retrieved foul ball to the press box, you receive one free token for a snow cone at the concessions stand. Naturally then, they swarm any balls hit beyond the fence.

“After visiting here for the first time…

Savanna's Blog

KFC aka Kentucky Fried Chicken was founded by Colonel Harland Sanders and started as a roadside restaurant in Corbin, Kentucky during the Great Depression.

Sanders was born on September 9, 1890 in Henryville, Indiana. He didn’t always sell chicken. During his early career, he had various jobs. In 1906, Sanders went to work for his uncle’s streetcar company in New Albany, Indiana. He worked as a conductor.

Also in 1906, Sanders decided to enlist in the United States Army. He served as a wagoner in Cuba and was honorably discharged in February 1907.

After leaving the military, Sanders went back to work in railroads. He continued this work until 1920 when he decided to establish a ferry boat company. The ferry operated on the Ohio river between Jeffersonville and Louisville.

Sanders’ ferry business was an instant success and he eventually cashed in the company for $22,000 (which is equivalent to $316,000…

Why Everyone should start Couponing

Yusra's blog

Many people go shopping everyday without knowing how much they are over paying for items they could get for way cheaper. This goes for products from all over the spectrum. For example, there are coupons for food, hygiene products, household items, and even automobile use.

Department and drug stores now compete against each other to see who can provide the best sales and coupons. Not only are coupons generated from stores, there are also coupons from companies themselves, known as manufacturing coupons. What’s so great about them is that they can be combined with the store coupons to give customers an even better deal.

Drug stores are one the best to visit when couponing. Walgreens, CVS, and Rite Aid usually have deals that are very similar. This way you can triple up on the deals since most are a one time use only. In addition, local stores like Kroger in…
