  • COLUMN: Spock's mantra was timeless

     Star Trek has been reborn so many times, it’s hard to believe the original TV series – and arguably the best of the bunch – lasted only three years. From 1966 to 1969 – and later in reruns – Captain Kirk and the best-sidekick-ever, Mr. Spock, traveled the universe, righting wrongs and occasionally committing a few.

  • LETTER: Campbellsville Fire Department seeks photos

      100 years for Campbellsville Fire Department

    The Campbellsville Fire Department is celebrating its 100th year. A committee is working on an anniversary publication, and it is looking for photos of the Campbellsville Fire Department. 

  • Navy Reserve celebrates its centennial

    Washington DC – The Navy Reserve will mark its centennial anniversary on March 3 with a series of events starting in Washington DC and continuing at installations around the country during the year. The events will highlight the history of the Navy Reserve and the remarkable contributions Reserve Sailors have made to the nation’s security.

  • Wintry weather was a challenge for newspaper staff

    It’s not BREAKING news that last week’s snow and ice weather event was challenging for all of us trying to get from home to work, to the grocery, doctor’s appointments, etc., but it was a challenge for our team as well, getting your local news out to you on a timely manner.

  • Just ask

    If you see someone throwing out garbage on the side of the road – who do you call to turn them in?

    Has anyone ever been fined $500 (per the road signs) for throwing out garbage?

    Who do you call about an excessive amount of garbage on the side of the road? (Specifically, the area on Bardstown Road at the foot of Red Hill Cemetery).

    LaRue County Solid Waste Coordinator Jill Gray responded:

  • Lot of history at Little Mount

    It has been a process that has taken years, but at long last, one of the most historic cemeteries in LaRue County has a proper marker.

    On Feb. 12, 2015, as part of the Lincoln Birthday Celebration, a marker, donated by the Captain Jacob Van Meter Chapter, National Society, Daughters of the American Revolution, was unveiled on Leafdale Road. (The actual ceremony took place at Ovesen Heights Baptist Church, due to inclement weather.)

  • COLUMN: He's driving again with Mary

    Madison “Mac” Mather died, at the age of 100, on Friday the 13th.

    Many of us think it would be lucky indeed to live to that ripe old age –especially if we could stay in our own homes as did Mr. Mather.

    No matter how old we grow, few of us will reach the legendary status of Mr. Mather. He was the embodiment of the very best country songs.

    I don’t think he would have minded being described in such terms. The last time we spoke, he talked about his love of music and how he loved to call square dances in his younger days.

  • 1914 fire reshaped Hodgenville

    I completely missed it.

    Last week, as I was doing a little research on the history of Hodgenville (remember, three years until the bicentennial), I came across a clipping of an event that occurred 100 years ago.

    A fire destroyed much of downtown Hodgenville on April 28, 1914. Twenty-six businesses in the northwest quadrant of Lincoln Square turned to ashes that night. The event put a damper on the City’s 100th year celebration.

    Most of the businesses that were rebuilt can be seen on the square today.
