     Since the first of the year, Kids Crew Director Denise Rose has been putting together ideas for her summer program.

     Donnie Hogue of Hodgenville had planned a pleasant Mother’s Day. She was looking forward to spending some time with her 12-year-old grandson Levi Gaddie and “spoiling” him a bit.

    That Sunday took a frightening turn when she choked on a bite of food. She said Levi’s quick thinking saved her life.

    “I got up that morning and asked him if he’d like a big, homemade breakfast,” said Hogue. She started preparing homemade biscuits, gravy, fried potatoes, scrambled eggs and bacon.

  • COLUMN: Notes from Groundhog Hill

     Two weeks ago, I plowed and planted this year's summer garden, or what my sister Paula and I refer to as “The Deer Buffet.” Open 24 hours.

    I have two gardens. The first is neat and orderly and supervised by my father, who at 92 years young, is a Master Gardener. I am his apprentice (and manual labor).  This garden resides in town at Dad’s home on Greensburg Street. Not too many deer come around. We do get the occasional raccoon, though. Lots of rabbits too.
