  • She’s daddy’s little hero

    Move aside, Superman. Step back, Captain America. Thor, put down that hammer.

    There is a new hero in town.

    She’s a little short to be able to leap tall buildings in a single bound and prefers a pink sundress to a red cape, but Kylie Craig, 8, is exactly the hero her father needed last Tuesday.

    On the morning of June 2, Kylie’s father, Josh, went into cardiac arrest in the master bedroom of the Craig’s home in Lawrenceburg.

  • Fire leaves family of six homeless

    Joey and Chelsey Bast didn’t have anything to smile about as they stood watching their home at 1069 Herndon Road burn nearly to the ground last Tuesday afternoon.

    That is until Maj. Amy Womack with Anderson County EMS walked up their driveway and handed them a pillowcase filled with photo albums and other family mementoes.

    Those objects, along with their dog, six newborn puppies and a pot-bellied pig were all that was left of the home that housed them, their four young children and would have been home later this year to the twins Chelsey Bast is carrying.
