  • Getting back to the garden

    When we first moved to Florida, our oldest daughter was 14 and not happy about the move.
    Being 14, she cried. A lot.
    One of her many places of tears was Sunken Gardens, the old Florida attraction in St. Petersburg. It’s supposedly the oldest commercial tourist attraction on Florida’s west coast and one of the first botanical gardens in the U.S.
    In 1903, George Turner, Sr., a plumber and avid gardener, bought the site, which included a shallow lake, 10 feet below sea level. He drained it and planted a “sunken” garden.

  • Kay Brown seeks judgment for half

    Kay Brown, estranged wife of former Cynthiana mayor and businessman Jim Brown, is seeking a judgment in bankruptcy court that would give her half of her husband’s holdings.
    The bankruptcy filing puts suits on hold that have been filed against her in Harrison Circuit Court.
    Kay Brown filed a Chapter 11 bankruptcy suit in January 2012. That case was moved from a Chapter 11 reorganization to Chapter 7, which turns all of the property over to a trustee and that trustee may sell some or all of the property to settle debts.
