  • Pipeline update: State begins talks

    LaRue Fiscal Court has no plans to adopt a resolution about the proposed Bluegrass Pipeline.

    Magistrates Ronald Dale Nunn, W.L. Miller, Ricky Whitlock and Tony Stewart, last week said it is a “private” decision by individuals to allow a pipeline carrying highly-flammable natural gas liquids on their properties.

    Nunn said he had heard “more people for (the pipeline) than against it.” He said it was safer to transport the liquids through a pipeline than on Interstate 65.

    Stewart said he had heard from both sides of the issue.

  • Artist takes skill from large canvas to small

    As a body repair man, Tommy Gardner mixes various textures and colors of paint every day in his shop about a couple of miles out of Hodgenville off U.S. 31-E.

    He also works with paint in a very different way, however, when he applies his skills to canvas instead of autos.

    “For me, painting cars is a job; painting on canvas is a passion,” said Gardner. “While working on cars, I find myself duplicating and replicating, but I can be as creative as my imagination will allow when I get my oils out.”
