  • COLUMN: Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus

     Dear Editor,

  • COLUMN: It's time to shed light on those who prey on children

     Joe Paterno, Jim Boeheim, and all the enablers who look away while children are molested are the big national story this Christmas. They and their failures to act, to protect, the most helpless of our citizens have been the talk of every town, every gathering where right-thinking people meet for the last month.  But in this season when we celebrate the coming of Christ, whom Christian theology teaches us was the son of the Almighty, we need a new perspective.

  • COLUMN: Nothing rinky-dink about Dinky's annual magic show

    I’ve covered Dinky Gowen’s Kid’s Day Christmas Spectacular for the newspaper for several years. I’d drop by the Park and Recreation Community Center and take a few photos of the magic show.
    It has always been enjoyable … but face it, it was work.
    It has been many years since I was accompanied by small children to the event. Watching the performance through the lens of a camera falls far short of experiencing it through the eyes of a child.

  • MYSTERY PHOTO: Riverside Tavern?

    The mystery of the old photo continues.

    Where was it taken?

    The photographer said it was taken between 1975 and 1977 in LaRue County – a statement that brought some confusion because LaRue County has been dry (no alcohol sales) for decades and the store sign clearly says “beer.” The photo is being displayed in an exhibit at the Frazier History Museum.

    It’s agreed that it wasn’t taken in LaRue County – but several people believe it to have been taken on the LaRue/Nelson line, facing toward LaRue County.

  • LETTER: Conservation programs need protection

    I am a tree farmer in Hart County. Along with Kentucky’s other 467,000 family forest owners, I am proud that my woodland property provides my community with clean air, clean water, wildlife habitat, recreational opportunities and forest products. Most people think that the federal government or big industry owns most of Kentucky’s 467,000 acres of forests, but, in fact, most of Kentucky's forests are owned primarily by family farmers.

    We received several phone calls about the above photo which is being displayed at the Frazier History Museum.
