    A woman and five children were left homeless when a fire destroyed their home early Monday morning at 1169 Sea Ridge Road.

    Krogman said it remained unclear Monday afternoon what sparked the blaze.

  • Speedsters tour Lawrenceburg

    No top. No fenders. No problem.

    Model T Speedster enthusiasts made Lawrenceburg home for four days last week during the Horses, Bourbon and Back Roads Tour.

    A speedster is built from a Model T Ford (1908-31) and is powered by a four-cylinder Ford engine. The cars are topless and often have the fenders removed.

    Twenty-nine speedsters and 62 folks made the trip to Lawrenceburg for the 13th annual tour. Each year, the tour takes place in a different setting. Organizers choose Lawrenceburg this year for the country roads and local attractions.
