  • Rolling with the Speedwagon

    Brandi Bryant of Fort Knox and Debbie Reynolds of Springfield, Ark., met Saturday and realized within a few minutes they agreed on two things. Music from the ’70s and ’80s is much better than current popular hits, and the front row was the only place to be during the Blue Oyster Cult, Styx and REO Speedwagon concert that night.

    Reynolds laughed and said, “There’s nothing better than the front row. Second row isn’t good enough.”

    She won’t admit to how many Styx concerts she has seen, saying the number is shamefully high.

  • Cold case: Brother puts mystery 'in God's hands'

    After 20 years of wondering about his brother’s killer, Burt Lindsey thinks it’s time to leave the matter completely in God’s hands.

    “It’s actually quite a relief,” he said.

    His attempt to let go of the hope that he can help find his brother’s killer doesn’t mean he’ll stop telling Willie’s story.

    Lindsey’s brother, a U.S. Army veteran, was 48 when he was found dead June 24, 1992, by Willie’s live-in girlfriend of eight years.

The stones were driven by truck from Washington, D.C., to Bluegrass Harley-Davidson in Louisville, where they were picked up and escorted to Radcliff.

    Saturday wrapped up the two-day celebration of the second annual Summer Blast.
