  • From our readers
    I just wanted to make you aware of a correction in this week’s “Way” column.  
    Under the obituary of Mrs. Lucille Gordon DePoyster, what is now Dowling Hall was never the Gordon-Gash Funeral Home.  It was only the old Gordon Funeral Home until it closed in the late 1970s.  There were new owners in March of 1961 who purchased the home from the Gordon family.  My uncle, Gordon Jenkins, was one of those owners.  I worked there under the guidance of the late Vernon Record until it closed.  

  • Last Tuesday, a New York appeals court ruled that Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s effort to place a size limit on non-diet sodas, which had in turn been imposed by the local board of health, was unconstitutional and an excessive use of power.

  • Kelsey Lauren Young Richardson of Lexington and Patrick Michael Richardson of Lawrenceburg were married May 4, 2013, at the Rotunda at My Old Kentucky Home in Bardstown.
