  • Mom upset after city says items on daughter’s grave must go

    A Lawrenceburg woman is saying it’s unfair that the city is making her remove items from her daughter’s gravesite.
    Deb Driscoll said in the three years since her daughter’s death, she has placed a lot of time and effort into decorating the gravesite.
    “I have placed brick around the headstone and I keep it maintained,” she said. “Now they’re saying I have to pull all of that up … if it’s not attached to the headstone, it has to go.”

  • Don’t let excessive rain ruin your garden

    Whoever thought white floors were a good idea?
    People with maids, maybe. One thing is for sure, spring weather in Kentucky is never boring. You know, if we were smart, we’d dig holes to store all this water for later use this summer, but it’s too wet to dig.

  • Tough questions, tougher answers

    If those attending last Thursday’s inaugural community forum expected local officials to receive softball questions from the crowd, they were wrong.
    In front of nearly 100 residents, the mayor, judge-executive, school superintendent, EDA chairman and state representative fielded tough, pre-submitted questions ranging from merging city and county governments to fallout from the recent sexual harassment lawsuit against the fiscal court.

  • Saving more than souls

    Preachers are in the business of saving souls, but when Benson Creek spilled its banks Monday morning, Preacher Josh Rucker busied himself with saving a man’s truck.
    Rucker, who lives on Benson Creek Road and formerly served at Mount Vernon Baptist in Waddy, used a jon boat, heavy chain and his own pickup to pull the man’s truck from the swollen creek.
    Turns out Rucker wasn’t the only man of the cloth involved. The man who owns the truck is Minister Gene Chapman of Church of God in Lawrenceburg.
