  • Shade garden now in the sun?

    The environments of many of our landscapes have changed because of storm damage to trees. A once shady refuge beneath a tree may now be baking in the sun.

    For a garden with an eastern exposure, this may not be a deal breaker, but if the garden faces west, the afternoon sun will surely stress shade tolerant plants by the time summer rolls around.

  • Kentucky Bank closing Main Street branch

  • Qualified help needed, not just an answering service

    To the editor:

    I want to point out that 911 is a valuable asset to our community. However, when I called at midnight feeling desperate, they couldn’t tell me what to do. They said they could send me an ambulance, but recommended I call the hospital emergency room on how to stop the bleeding.

    My seventeen-year-old son ran a knife into the palm of his hand, severing a vein - blood was squirting like a fountain. I panicked and couldn’t even think what to do.

    “Call 911! They’ll know,” I said to myself.

  • St. Edward receives grant for playground

    Gov. Steve Beshear announced this week that St. Edward Preschool and school will receive $31,395 through a crumb rubber grant. St. Edward is one of 11 grant recipients totaling almost $200,000.

    “Recycling used to be seen as strictly an environmental action,” Gov. Beshear said.  “Today recycling is also an economic issue.  Recycling isn’t just good for the environment, it makes sense economically.”

  • Elridge tells graduates to 'dream big'

    Editor’s note: The original speech has been edited for space.

    Well, you made it! William T. Young said that to my graduating class in 2003 when I graduated from Transylvania University and I always said that if I was ever given the opportunity to speak at a commencement celebration, I would repeat those words because in a great sense, this moment is more than just making it through classes and walking across a stage.
