    Thomas was searching the Internet for clues about the find when he hit on William Gowen’s photo showing off his own “Super Cat” comic on the The LaRue County Herald News website.

    Jodi Johnson gives riding lessons at Wayne Ridge Farm outside Upton.

    Johnson, who says horses have the ability to “speak to you and heal you,” has the responsibility of helping children and horses communicate when human interaction is particularly difficult.

  • West Point Bank has museum quality

    The Upton branch of West Point Bank is not an ordinary bank with ordinary decorations.

    Instead, it resembles a small museum.

    From the first moment that you walk through the doors, your eyes are drawn to the large and dark stained, glossy bar that is the teller’s castle.

    The bar, patented in December of 1903, was purchased by the bank’s founder, Joe Tobin, in the sunny state of California. It was placed in the building before its opening day in 2008.
