    The work, which is expected to continue until 4 p.m. today, will require the eastbound lanes to be closed periodically near mile marker 8 for about 15 minutes at a time, said Chris Jessie, the cabinet's public information officer.

  • Dealing with DUIs

    ISSUE: Recent DUI arrests of public officials
    OUR VIEW: Reaction should be tempered

    What conduct should be expected of a public servant, particularly in their downtime? Are community leaders ever “off duty” in that sense?

    Community expectation may vary but questions have arisen following recent arrests of the school superintendent and a deputy county coroner in LaRue County. In the same week, each was arrested and charged with driving under the influence by the Hodgenville Police Department.

  • My first comic con

    A few weekends ago, I boldly went where so many other nerds had gone before: comic con. It wasn’t the big one held in San Diego each year, but it still had some big-name guest and lots of excitement.

    I didn’t cosplay — dress up like a character — but did spend several days deciding which sci-fi T-shirt to wear. I finally picked one featuring Marvel character Loki, mainly because I have a slight crush on the actor who plays him, Tom Hiddleston. The friend who went with me wore a TARDIS dress.

  • A port to prosperity?

    An economic development tool in Meade County should be open this fall, providing millions of dollars in revenue through the agriculture industry by offering a regional grain market for local farmers.

  • COLLEGE BASKETBALL: Smith makes 'Russdiculous' appearance at Towne Mall (4/10)

    The term “Russdiculous” has become synonymous with every mind-blowing play Louisville senior guard Russ Smith made in his four-year career – both good and bad.

    Coined by Coach Rick Pitino, who also famously used the name for one of his horses, the catchphrase could be used after he hoisted up an errant 3-pointer or dunked over Kentucky’s Julius Randle and everything in between.
