The comedian Buddy Hackett used to tell the story about a man who didn't know anything about farming but who bought a farm anyway. A friend asked him what he was going to plant. "Razor blades and cabbages," the would-be farmer told him. "What could you possibly get out of that?" his friend asked. The landowner replied, "Coleslaw."

You can't blame that man for experimenting with "cutting-edge" agricultural methods. After all, coleslaw is the perfect accompaniment to grilled meats, chicken, and fish that so often are the mainstays of summer meals.

The property containing Old McKendree Chapel and Cemetery has been established as Jackson's first local historic landmark.

Approved by the city’s board of aldermen on Monday, the site resides as the first and only listing under their Historic Preservation Ordinance.

Ed Sheeran's syrupy, Grammy-winning single "Thinking Out Loud" is now at the center of two lawsuits.

The ginger troubadour was first sued over the hit song last year by the heirs of Edward Townsend, Jr., a co-writer of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On," which they claim "Thinking Out Loud" cribs from enough to warrant a lawsuit.

This week we've got new music from The Jayhawks. Singer/songwriter Gary Louris over the years has collaborated as a songwriter with a number of high profile musicians like Jacob Dylan and The Dixie Chicks. Back Roads and Abandoned Motels features his band’s take on some of those songs. Plus new music from Mitski, Saintseneca and more.
