  • Gream offers variety in 'Kentucky Art Lady' shop

    Janet Gream is quick to point out her downtown Elizabethtown business is called Kentucky Art Lady, not “the” Kentucky Art Lady.
    Gream didn’t want the name of her gallery to focus on her or have her name in it. The name of her shop doesn’t refer to anyone in specific.
    “My daughter came up with it,” she said of the name.
    The work of local and regional artists fills the business. Baskets, paintings, drawings, pottery, soaps and even socks are some of the handmade arts and craft items in her store.

  • COLUMN: Death of bin Laden is another 'Film Unfinished'

    Most everyone can remember what they were doing on Sept. 11, 2001.
    It was Tuesday and at The LaRue County Herald News, we were busy putting together that week’s edition. We don’t have a TV in the office and radio reception is poor so we were oblivious to the reports of terrorist attacks to the north.
    Mid-morning we received a phone call from a lady who insisted that a plane had just hit the Twin Towers and “both Pentagons.”
