  • LETTER: 5K was a successful Relay fundraiser

    5K a successful fundraiser

    We live in a great community and Living Strong Relay Team would like to thank all the people and businesses that made our first 5K Run/Walk a huge success!

    As a result of financial and in-kind donations from Bennett-Bertram Funeral Home, Arrowhead Archery & BBQ, Bullfrogs and Butterflies, Ross Leasing, Hinton's Orchard, Fort Knox Federal Credit Union, Save-A-Lot, IGA, and several anonymous donations, 100 percent of all runner and walker registrations went to LaRue County Relay for Life.

  • COLUMN: Feeling old, looking forward

    A few weeks ago, I was standing knee-deep in snow on the edge of a bluff, hanging onto a skinny tree branch and trying to take photos of a car that had landed in a creek below.
    The snow had edged over the top of my Fat Babies (boots, people, boots) and I was losing traction fast. I got a few photos and prayed that I wouldn’t end up at the bottom of the hill (or on YouTube) – looking like a giant snow burrito – before I finished.

  • LETTERS: Thank you from ALES Academic Team

     Please let me take this opportunity to thank the many people who helped the Abraham Lincoln Elementary School Academic Team with its most successful season. It took a huge commitment on the part of many people in order for these 20 students to excel at both the district and regional level.

    First, I must thank the parents and grandparents for allowing us the practice time at school and home. Without their support and partner study, we would not have achieved.

  • LETTER: Sunrise encounter - workers should be proud

     On March 27, I had the good fortune of encountering a group of ladies and their caretakers from Sunrise Manor. This was at the Amish store near Munfordville – RS Bakery and Groceries.

  • COLUMN: Spring brings bird brains and dumb clucks

     This column is about chickens. If you don’t want to read about roosters in particular, now is a good time to stop.

    A few months ago, my pet rooster Chi-Bob was assassinated. There is no other way to describe the carnage that occurred when a red-tailed hawk dropped out of the sky directly onto his head. One second Chi-Bob was standing inside the pen, flirting with the hens – the next, he was a flattened wad of feathers.

  • LETTER: Session leaves disappointment for many in business community

    The 2015 session of the General Assembly is being heralded by some as a great success due to the passage of bills addressing heroin, the road fund and other issues. Without question, there is cause to acknowledge and celebrate those accomplishments.

    But there is another chapter to this session’s story for Kentucky’s business community, and it is one of disappointment because of the many pro-business bills that were left hanging in the balance when the final gavel fell.

    First, the positive results of the session that will advance Kentucky:

  • COLUMN: Frankfort Focus

    FRANKFORT – In one way, the bills filed each legislative session are not much different from the teams taking part in the NCAA basketball tournaments.  Some advance, while others find out that this is not their year.

  • COLUMN: Look but don't touch ... and other courtesies

     I’ll start by saying none of this was spurred by anyone I know personally, so if we’re friends, don’t take offense. They were, however, inspired by members of the public.
