  • Several entertainment magazines reported last week that Liam Neeson has dropped out of playing former U.S. President Abraham Lincoln in a Steven Spielberg film.

    The movie has been in the works since 2005, but put on hold several times as both Neeson and Spielberg took on other projects.

    Neeson, 58, thinks he is too old to play the part and has instead agreed to play Lyndon B. Johnson in a film about civil rights leader Martin Luther King.

  • Tom Coffey figures that since he became manager in 1987, LaRue County Water District Number 1 has laid enough water lines to reach from his office in Buffalo all the way to Birmingham, Ala.

    “It would take you a long way down the road,” said Coffey who was recognized for his 27 years of service Aug. 9 at a retirement cookout in his honor at the water district office.

    Born within a half mile of where the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum now stands at Renfro Valley, Coffey began working for the water district in 1981.
