  • COLUMN: Farm Safety Symposium made you think

     I attended the 20th Dixie Fire School’s Farm Safety Symposium on March 8 in Elizabethtown. The program was very impressive. LaRue County FFA member Ashley Cottrell was part of a regional FFA team to plan and conduct the program.

  • Wreck on I-65 diverts traffic to U.S. 31-W

     Northbound I-65 remains reduced to one lane at Exit 71 in Hart County due to a multi-commercial vehicle and personal vehicle crash that occurred around 4 a.m., according to the Department of Transportation.

    The Bonnieville exit is blocked.  Motorists needing to access US 31W should use Exit 65 (Munfordville) and then proceed north on US 31W.  With morning traffic increasing, the queue is extending.  Minor delays may be possible.  Both lanes should be re-opened in 1-2 hours.

  • OPINION: 13-hour filibuster was just the beginning

     If I had planned to speak for 13 hours when I took the Senate floor, I would’ve worn more comfortable shoes. I started my filibuster with the words, “I rise today to begin to filibuster John Brennan’s nomination for the CIA. I will speak until I can no longer speak” — and I meant it.

  • Kentucky Repertory Theatre closes

     After 35 seasons, the Horse Cave Theatre and Kentucky Repertory Theatre is closing.

    “We are sad to say that we will not be opening our doors for a 2013 season. Economic pressures have made it impossible to continue,” is a message on the theatre’s website.

    The small (355 seats), professional theatre has staged 232 productions. The first production was “Candida” by George Bernard Shaw in 1977.

  • COLUMN: 'The Real Truth about Beauty'

     Last week, while fighting with myself over what to wear to work because nothing I owned fit, I overheard a news story that broke my heart.

    A mother in Australia stumbled across her 7-year-old daughter’s diet plan. The girl was allowing herself to eat “appals, keewee and yoget.” She also had an exercise regimen.

    It was a testament to how hard we are on ourselves as a global society, how much emphasis the world puts on body image, how easily influenced children are, especially girls. And it made me re-think my state of mind at the time.
