  • Mather leaves legacy of medals, courage

    Donald Mather, 81, one of LaRue County’s most successful athletes, didn’t know the meaning of the word “quit.”

    Despite recent setbacks with his health, he continued to remain as active as possible.

    One of his neighbors, Robin Lee, said he loved to mow his own yard. It was an ongoing joke between the two of them – she would look out her door to check on him as he made rounds on the lawnmower and he’d wave his hand, signaling he was “OK.”

  • State suspends KCHIP fee to assist families

    Families in the Kentucky Children’s Health Insurance Program, which offers free or low-cost health insurance to eligible children, will no longer have to pay monthly premiums to ensure coverage for their child.

    Previously, some KCHIP families were required to pay a $20 monthly premium to receive KCHIP coverage for their children. The Kentucky General Assembly approved suspending the monthly charge after determining it served as a deterrent to enrollment and caused some children to drop out of the program because of the burden of paying premiums.

  • My baby you will always be

    One of the hardest things a mother will have to do is let her child go. I had to do that last weekend. After 12 years of school and ballgames in every sport. I had to pack his clothes, TV, and his beloved PlayStation in my truck and drive him to a new beginning – College.

    What ever will I do now? I don’t remember ever being without him. I’ve always done for him or with him. I need to find Carrie Ann again ... and put Mom on the back burner.
