    Irene Dodson, 862-3808

    Fall is here and the signs are all about us, the crops are curing for harvest and the leaves are beginning to fall. I understand the school children will be getting a fall break from Oct. 3-11. It seems that time moves faster all the time, but of course it is just me, for there are still 24 hours in a day.

  • Billboard suit awaits Ky. Supreme Court review

    Interstate 65 is a major U.S. artery cluttered with billboards advertising everything from fast food to health care services. In the case of a set owned by a Scottsville real estate developer, a billboard is an opportunity to evangelize to the traveling public.

    Jimmy Harston owns three billboards in the counties of LaRue (“Hell Is Real”), Hart (“If you died today where would you spend eternity”) and Warren (“Jesus Saves”).

  • Exchanging loose change for a little time

    In the corners of my brain, I managed to preserve memories of a child's perspective of downtown Elizabethtown.

    There's a sense of wonder associated with visits to J.J. Newberry's which had a collection of ladies' hats by the front door, a massive lunch counter that always seemed crowded and a staircase in the middle of the floor that led to an actual bargain basement.

  • Four species represented at St. Christopher's Blessing of the Animals

    Through barking, yipping, growling and the sounds of construction across the street, the Rev. Dennis Cousens blessed animals Saturday morning at St. Christopher Catholic Church in Radcliff.

    Four species were represented at the service. Most of the animals were dogs, but a few cats, a 16-year-old California king snake and a bird were part of the menagerie. Most pet owners showed up with more than one animal.

  • Parole denied for driver in Tommy Langley’s death

    Convicted drunken driver Michael Brunello of Rineyville was denied parole at a hearing Wednesday in Frankfort.

    In November 2009, Brunello was involved in a drunken driving wreck on Battle Training Road that resulted in the death of cab driver Tommy Langley, who now would be 32.

    Brunello, 26, pleaded guilty in 2010 to charges of second-degree manslaughter, driving under the influence with an aggravating circumstance, second-degree persistent felony offender, leaving the scene of an accident and driving without insurance.

  • Lookin' like Lincoln Days

    Lincoln Days kicked off Saturday in Hodgenville with traditional fare such as funnel cakes and local music mixed with Abraham Lincolns and pioneer games.

    This weekend marks the 36th Lincoln Days, and the celebration continues today with a nondenominational service at 11 a.m. and a professional rail splitting contest at 2 p.m.

    Saturday’s festivities included look-alike contests. There were seven participants in the Abraham Lincoln contest and three in the Mary Todd Lincoln contest.
