  • 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.

    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.

  • Woman’s tree swiped while she’s at church

    Joyce Sims came home from church June 2 and immediately called Lawrenceburg police.
    Someone had stolen her tree peony.  
    The tree is not her favorite planting in Sims’ meticulously landscaped backyard at 617 Nickelbie Drive. Sims prefers Crepe Myrtle trees or calla lilies to a tree peony or “peony tree” as she referred to the perennial.
    But the tree peony’s maroon-and-white flowers bloom for only a few short weeks in spring, Sims said, and then they’re gone until next year.

  • City man charged with animal cruelty

    Stella is charged with shooting a neighbor’s dog, a boxer named Rocco, in an incident last September.
