  •  What is the main reason you give for not getting enough exercise in your day?  Are you too busy, too tired when you get home from work or just don't have the energy to even think about exercising? We give all sorts of excuses and don't even want to hear the E-word some days. What if activity wasn't a dreaded thing and what if you could make it fun and fit it into your normal everyday routine?  Do I have your attention?

  •  Guests planning to attend the 150th commemoration of the Battle of Perryville, Oct. 6-7, can save money and avoid long lines by purchasing advance tickets online.

  •  Steve Thompson could give lessons to whoever said, “If life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

    Just when he was living the good life with success in music and real estate, he was besieged with a deluge of drawbacks, including two bouts of cancer and a disastrous economic downturn that would have caused most people to lose hope… but not Thompson.

    “The victory is in the fight,” the 53-year-old former Michigan resident said.

    Thompson was born in New York City but the family moved to a very rural Michigan farm in 1967.

  •  For 33 years senior citizens from far and near have found three and a half-hours of musical entertainment every Saturday night at LaRue County’s Senior Center located on Walters Avenue in Hodgenville.

  •  Murle Elliott has never been one to flit, like a bird, from job to job.

    When he was only 17 years old, he found a job he loved – operating a bull dozer – and 69 years later he’s still going strong, sometimes putting in 40-60 hours a week.

     “I feel better when I’m getting up and going to work,” said Elliott, who lives on Jericho Road. “If there’s work for me, I’ll do it.”

    Elliott’s love for the big tractors began when he worked on a relative’s farm at Fern Creek.
