  • All TV signals switch to digital

    On June 12, all full-power TV in the U.S. will stop analog broadcast service and transmit only digital signals. Consumers who do not subscribe to pay television services and have analog televisions will need to have digital-to-analog converter boxes – and a good antenna – attached to their televisions in order to continue receiving over-the-air television programming.

  • Relics saved from Lincoln Heritage House

    Recently gutted by a fire that authorities believe to be arson, the Lincoln Heritage House in Elizabethtown's Freeman Lake Park may be rebuilt with as much salvaged material from the original structure as possible.

    “I want to try to get a cabin back up there if at all possible,” City Councilman Tim Walker said.

    Salvagers have pulled from the rubble a few iron pots that had been around the fireplace, Walker said. Some of the cabin’s contents dated back to the early 1800s.

    Landmark News Service

    Only two weeks after a Bardstown city ordinance went into effect allowing the sale of packaged liquor on Sundays, Nelson County has followed suit.

    Magistrates voted to allow the sales in a 3-2 vote on second reading, with Third District Magistrate Bernard Ice dissenting and Fourth District Magistrate Tim Hutchins abstaining due to what he felt is a conflict of interest. Hutchins owns a convenience store and is involved in a pending lawsuit with the city involving annexation.

  • Four-wheeler stopped by deputy

    “This four-wheeler came flying past the fruit stand and went in Y-Not-Stop sideways,” McCoy said.

    McCoy drove to the convenience store where the driver, Dustin Hathaway, 21, was putting gas in the vehicle.

  • Pets removed from Hill Street home

    Hodgenville City Police removed 10 dogs and six cats from a Hill Street home Friday after neighbors complained to City Hall.

    Chief John Cottrill said the owner was not complying with the county’s kennel ordinance, which limits the number of dogs that may be kept at one site. Since the owner cooperated with police and agreed to have the animals removed, she was not cited, Cottrill said.

    “It was the second time we’d been up there,” Cottrill said. “Those dogs were barking so loud you could hear them across town.”
