  • Lutrell found guilty of murder

    The man who admittedly shot and killed Steve Briscoe three years ago in his Fairview Road driveway has been convicted of murder.

    Gary Lutrell, 42, was very emotional and cried repeatedly during the four-day trial, but sat stone-faced as Circuit Court Judge Charles Hickman read the 12-member jury’s verdict around 6 p.m. Thursday.

    Lutrell, who has ties to Lawrenceburg but lived in Lexington at the time of the murder, is scheduled to be sentenced Friday at 9 a.m.

  • When hope triumphs sin is defeated

    If any individual is sitting in his doctor’s office, and the doctor explains, “You have a fatal illness that if left untreated will surely take you life,” we will all sit up and take notice. If the doctor continues by explaining that there is a new drug that has had a remarkable result in curing people that have your same fatal diagnosis, I expect that you would say “let me have it,” regardless of whatever it may cost. Yet we are all so very careless in our response to so great a savior in the person of Jesus Christ.

  • Revisit childhood with retro desserts

    This week I’d like to take a trip back in time. After reading this I want you to say, “My mom made that!”

    So many desserts are not made any more for various reasons. Some were too time-consuming, messy, and hazardous to our health. Cakes made with lard, baked Alaska, cherries jubilee, I wonder how many avocado, green curtains went up in smoke due to flambé?
