  • Lady beetles on the move

    Some years are worse than others: I remember years when it was like a siege of lady beetles, other years a few popped up here or there.   Usually they sneak their way into our homes as a noticeable chill settles in.  On sunny days they cling to the screen door on the south side of where I write, but I need not worry about them as they sun themselves.  The ones that make it inside, however, meet my vacuum cleaner.

  • Famed Bardstown amphitheater shut down

    The often busy J. Dan Talbott Amphitheater is now vacant and dark. It’s a sight that is heartbreaking for Johnny Warren, managing artistic director for “The Stephen Foster Story,” who was present early Thursday morning when the state cut the power to one of Bardstown’s most important attractions.

    The Kentucky Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet issued a press release on the amphitheater’s closure Thursday afternoon, citing electrical and structural issues.

  • Kentucky drivers urged to use caution over the holiday season

    The Kentucky Office of Highway Safety (KOHS) and Kentucky State Police (KSP) is reminding motorists to be responsible behind the wheel as the “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” campaign continues through Jan. 1, 2018.

    “While the holiday season is a special time to visit with friends and family, many of these celebrations include alcohol,” said KOHS Executive Director Dr. Noelle Hunter. “Drunken driving-related crashes are 100-percent preventable.  It just makes sense to plan for a designated driver before the party begins.”
