  • KSP warns of summer heat


    As the Kentucky summer is heating up, so is your vehicle. The Kentucky State Police reminds parents not to leave a child alone in a hot car. It may seem like common sense, but every year law enforcement agencies answer calls about unattended children in vehicles. KidsandCars.org reports that 32 children died in the U.S. during 2014 from vehicular heat stroke.

  • Gas prices projected to drop

    2015’s second half represents a strong commitment that motorists will spend even less on gasoline this year than they did in 2014. GasBuddy experts say that before Christmas, as many as 20 states could have average gas prices below $2 per gallon as the national average for December slips to $1.98.

    “We’re confident that our projections give consumers more than accuracy; we think they’ll help them identify some savings that should come in handy at Thanksgiving and Christmas,” said Patrick DeHaan, senior petroleum analyst for GasBuddy.

  • Sunrise Volunteers - September 2, 2015

    The old Sunrise Manor opened in 1967 and, almost immediately, people from the community wanted to be involved in helping. Residents have a better quality of life. Sons and daughters, brothers and sisters at first, then people that just wanted to help those less fortunate than themselves.

    Some of these volunteers became residents themselves. I know two past volunteers who are currently residents now. You just never know in life when you may need help.

    School bus drivers are trained and the buses are equipped with safety equipment all intended to make each student’s ride to and from school safe.

    Phil Fulkerson, LaRue County School District’s director of transportation and maintenance, noted a partial list of safety equipment on buses.
