    Samuel Slayton of St. Vivian Church, Boy Scout Troop 682, in Cincinnati has attained the rank of Eagle Scout.

    To become an Eagle, a candidate must demonstrate leadership skills in his Troop and in a community service project. For his project, Slayton chose to build an 130 foot fence addition to Farbach-Warner Nature Reserve in Colerain Township, Ohio.

  • Information sought about Bloyds' token

    Looking for token clues

    A friend was searching through his pocket change for a soda and noticed a token from H.M. Bloyds Café, Hodgenville, in the mix. Him, knowing I am a life long resident of Hodgenville, gave it to me. I asked my mother, who will celebrate her 87th birthday this year, about it and she didn't have any recollection of the business.
