  • Project Graduation appreciates help

    Parents of graduating seniors are at work on funding Project Graduation for the 2011 graduating class. This annual event is an opportunity for students to celebrate this milestone in a fun and safe environment.

    This year we started our fundraising drive by hosting a booth at Lincoln Days. We want to thank all parents that donated items to sale and those who worked.

  • Lincoln Days thanks

    Another Lincoln Days has come and gone. We clearly have a lot to be thankful for. The small rain on Saturday evening interrupted a couple of the artists and dampened the crowd, but it was badly needed. 

  • Hay, where were you in 1942?

    Last week, Lindsey Burgess came in our office looking for an article about her dad, Bobby Rogers, that was published on April 24, 1996. Bobby passed away Sept. 24.

    It brought back some good memories – about Bobby and my dad, Donald Gene Powell, who died in 2003. I thought I’d run it again just for the hay of it.

    He has a habit of looking at his feet when he talks. But when he finishes a sentence, he looks up quickly – looks you straight in the eye – and smiles.

    Lexington entrepreneur Paul Spicer faced a big decision 24 years ago.

    As I was on my knees one Saturday afternoon, I had an epiphany.

  • Frankfort memorial established for grieving parents

    For women who have lost a baby to miscarriage, stillbirth, or abortion the grief can seem endless. But now there’s an opportunity for closure, a chance to honor an unborn child.

    The Kentucky Memorial for the Unborn, planned for a bluff in Frankfort Cemetery overlooking the river, will be a place of reflection, healing and hope.

  • Give dads a chance to be responsible

    In today’s society families are made up of a variety of mixes. There are single moms, grandparents acting as guardians, whole families and several other variances.

    One variance not often mentioned is the role of a father. Several active fathers live in our communities. Why are they left out of the picture so often?

  • Loyall continues community service after retirement

    Being a wife of a public figure in the agriculture community, I have had the privilege of getting to know many great people along the way. One of those folks is Becky Loyall. Becky and her husband Randall, are 26-year residents of LaRue County and have served in so many community programs, there’s no way to name them all.

    Becky has retired from serving as the local State Farm agent of which she served for over 29 years, but that hasn’t stopped her from being involved.
