    When Candle Sampley was 8 years old she told her parents she wanted a piano.

    She did jobs around the house to get enough money to pay her part, and after several months her family brought home a piano. She started talking lessons when she was 9 and loved it. After graduating high school she picked up the guitar.

    Now age 29, Sampley plays and writes her own music.

  • One freaked out Corgi

    The past couple weeks were full of storms and have left me with little sleep. Not because they wake me up, I find sleeping through stormy weather quite soothing.

    My lack of sleep is because, for some reason, Duke the Corgi suddenly has become scared of storms. Furthermore he believes when he is scared I have to be awake. Boo, my Chocolate Lab, is quite annoyed by this as he grumbles at Duke and then flops back asleep.

    I’m not sure where this new fear of storms came from, but the lack of sleep is beginning to wear on me.

  • A cast carried by the film's giant star

    I will make an enemy of every “Twilight” fan on the planet when I talk of Robert Pattinson’s performance in “Water for Elephants.”

    The Pachyderm has more personality than Pattinson. But at least he smiled a few times in this one.

    The film is based on the best-selling novel written by Sara Gruen. It’s about a veterinary student, Jacob (Pattinson), whose parents die in a car accident right as he’s getting ready to take his final vet school exam.

An additional three-tenths had fallen by 7 a.m. today on top of the April total of 11.58 inches as of midnight Sunday.

  • I-65: The new L&N

    Model train enthusiast Jim Prentice recounted how a group of Bardstown dignitaries traveled to Louisville in the 1960s to protest L&N’s plan to end the passenger rail service that chugged into their town on a spur.

    When a railway official asked how they had arrived that day, they answered by car and bus.

    Saturday marks the 40th anniversary of the last Louisville & Nashville passenger run.
