  • Read hose label before using it on garden

    In life, it’s the little things that matter. People say that all the time and it’s true.
    As a gardener, there are all kinds of little things that matter. Good soil, suckering your tomato plants, thinning the lettuce and watering the plants are all little things that matter. It’s that last one that I want you to pay attention to right now.

  • ‘Glass mountain’: beautiful or dangerous?

    A meth lab burned down.
    Firefighters set the fire to practice for future blazes in the industrial park.
    Tim Hostetler, the operations manager at Dlubak Glass Co., in Lawrenceburg, has heard both rumors as the reasons behind the recycling plant’s massive fire May 3.
    He’s heard other descriptions of “glass mountain” in the past 12 years he’s worked for the Dlubak Glass Co.:
    Eyesore.
    Diamonds.
    And especially this conversation topic:
    What will happen if a tornado ripped through glass mountain?

  • Search for .22 round a living nightmare

    It was common when I was in high school for me to dig deep for milk money and pull several loose .22 rounds out of my pants pocket while sorting my change.
    The lunch lady at the cash register didn’t run away screaming and the local police department’s version of a S.W.A.T. team didn’t storm the building.
    It was a fact in our rural little town that boys (and a fair number of girls) had and used guns. Seeing them hanging from racks in the rear windows of their trucks parked outside the school building was as unremarkable as it was commonplace.

  • City council approves $3.559 million budget, salary increases

  • Fundraiser set for slain officer’s family

    Lawrenceburg police officer Sean Wells has organized a fundraiser to help the family of a Bardstown police officer murdered last month.
    Wells and fellow officers will wait tables Wednesday, June 19 from 6 to 8 p.m. at Edwardo’s Pizza, located on Glensboro Road, with a portion of the proceeds and all of the tips collected going to office Jason Ellis’ family.
    Ellis was ambushed and murdered May 25 while removing debris off an exit on the Bluegrass Parkway.

  • Manager: Smoke from glass fire posed no danger

    If a tornado tore through the industrial park glass pile at Dlubak Glass Co., operations manager Tim Hostetler said, it’d be a disaster.
    It’d also be a disaster if a tornado came through Lawrenceburg and picked up rocks, cars or trees, he said.
    “If a natural disaster happens, it happens,” Hostetler said. “Look at Oklahoma — you get a 2-mile wide tornado, it’s going to tear up everything.”

  • So they can rest in peace

    This house would be their home.
    But there’s one thing about it you may not like, the late Jackie Benningfield told his wife Betty Benningfield in the early ‘70s.
    Someone buried dead people in their new backyard.  
    Embraced by a 200-year-old stone fence, the Bell-Carpenter graveyard rests a few feet away from the intersection of Carlton and Maple Drive.
