    Rain last week washed out a yard sale fundraiser for a Beaver Lake Road man seriously injured in a one-vehicle wreck last month.
    The yard sale is now scheduled for Friday at 310 Djeddah Drive.
    Shannon Hall, 44, sustained serious injuries including punctured lungs, a broken arm, 11 broken ribs, a fractured spine and lacerations to his face, according to his sister, Tonia Chilton.

  • Hardware purchase an Independence Day surprise

    Don Simmons was shocked when he saw the receipt.
    When the Fairview Drive looked at the total for the hardware he purchased July 4 at Tractor Supply, it came to the $17.76 — the year of our nation’s birth on our nation’s birthday.
    “I thought it was funny, being the year of the American Revolution,” Simmons said Monday by phone. “I asked the clerk, ‘Hey, since you have to work today, are you charging everyone the same amount?’ She laughed in return and agreed that was pretty interesting.”

  • Real Key lime juice is key to wonderful pie

    I’m teaching a class on American regional cooking. In this column I usually use recipes that feature Kentucky products.

  • 83-year-old buys first home

    Marian Masters will be 113 years old when her 30-year mortgage is paid off.
    If that sounds unusual it should because, unlike most people who take out their first mortgage early in life, Marian waited until she was 83 to purchase her first home — a home she says is a gift from God.
    “I just walk through it and thank the Lord for this home,” said Marian, who just moved into her new home and to Lawrenceburg a couple of weeks ago.
    “It’s so beautiful and I know the Lord is in every corner of it.”
