  • Heads Up: Hodgenville to be featured in penny documentary

    Cody McDowell was filling his car up with gas at the Lincoln General Store getting ready to drive back to college when a camera crew approached him with questions.

    “I was getting ready to head back to Louisville for school and was wearing a souvenir penny t-shirt we sell here at the store,” McDowell said. “They came up and asked ‘Do you have a minute?’ I said ‘It just so happens my family runs the store here.’ It was 7 p.m. on a Sunday and the birthplace was closed so they did an interview with me.”

  • Ghost tales of LaRue County

    “The night was so dark that he could only imagine his hand in front of his face when he held it there, except when a sudden flash of lightning momentarily illuminated the area where he stood in front of the long-vacated frame building.

    As he entered the weather-beaten remains of the former funeral home, the door seemed to yield with a reluctant groan to his push instead of squeak as he slowly forced it open, feeling spider webs attack his face like a sticky net thrown over it as he took his first steps into the foreboding room.
