    After Lisa Hutchings’ father died more than 20 years ago, she assumed the Korean War veteran’s cremated remains were interred for good.

    Then about two months ago she received a phone call: Somebody had found the remains.

    The veteran — along with more than 30 others and some of their wives — received a military burial and service Monday at a Radcliff cemetery. Their ashes had sat neglected for years.

    Tales from the Heartland


    Some people who are really into their vehicles join clubs to tool around with other members and just hang out.

    Representatives of one such organization — not nearly as fast and flashy as a Corvette club or as roaring as a group of Harley riders — gathered in Stephensburg this past weekend.

    Fresh off a 20-mile trip Saturday evening, a creaking and rattling covered wagon caravan made its way up a hill to a brick farmhouse off Leitchfield Road.
