  • 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:

    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.

  • Court decision takes pressure off libraries

     Although it may not be the last word on the matter, many library officials around Kentucky must be feeling a bit more confident about the future of their institutions following a Friday ruling from the state Court of Appeals.

    A three-judge appellate panel unanimously overturned two lower court decisions involving revenue increases for libraries created by petition.

  • COLUMN: Splg skls hv suffrd tx 2 tk

    Gone from the landscape of many schools today is the old-fashioned spelling bee. Count us among those lamenting its demise.
    While some elementary school classes might have a spelling bee, to our knowledge, there is no school-wide spelling bee at either South Christian or Pembroke Elementary
    Back in my school days, the classroom spelling bee to determine who would represent each class in the overall spelling bee was a big deal. Teachers promoted it and students considered it a major achievement to advance to the district-wide spelling bee.

    Searching for Brown family

    I am looking for any descendants of Joseph B. and Caroline Palmer Brown of LaRue County in the 1830s-1860s, or any information on this couple. They were my great-great-great grandparents.

    They had seven children: Felix L., John C., Nancy E. (Patterson), William Lewis, Joseph B. Jr., Susan Cynthia (Brackett) and Zachariah T. Brown. Please contact me at lightbrownie@hotmail.com
