  • Mating season means more deer on Kentucky roadways

    Deer season is upon us and that means Kentucky drivers must be particularly aware of their surroundings while traveling along Kentucky’s streets and highways.

    The deer population, in general, has been growing all over the country for years. Urban expansion, more people moving to rural areas and more cars on the road result in an increase in dangerous car collisions with deer. In fact, deer-related automobile accidents cause approximately 150 deaths every single year, claiming more lives in the United States than encounters with any other animal.

  • Remembering JFK

  • Lost in LaRue - November 22, 2017

    Friday was one of those days when you looked out the window and the sky was just calling. So I set off in my car with my camera and took the long way to work. Where this was taken, I couldn’t say but somewhere along the back roads near Tonieville. Something I’ve noticed since I’ve lived here is that Kentucky sure has some nice sunrises, sunsets—and clouds! I spend a ton of time trying to come up with the right way to describe all these clouds. This particular morning looked like it was covered in popcorn.
