    But James, who lives on Bondville Road, says he loves to “go all out” for Christmas.
    And he wants others to enjoy the free lights, er, fruits of his labor.
    “We’re just two kids at heart and we just like setting up for Christmas,” James said of himself and his neighbor, Gordon Brandenburg, in a phone interview a few weeks ago.

  • Small changes to make addictive holiday foods healthier

    Many people overindulge on holiday foods. A small change to your recipes could result in healthier foods. Consider the change to healthier oils as a “better than” change. The food is healthier than it would have otherwise been but it doesn’t mean that it’s your best choice.

  • Viewing life outside of Lawrenceburg

    We live in a town that is surrounded by rolling hills, filled with green pastures, and influenced by agriculture. Our bluegrass territory and wild horses define who we are to other people and make us proud to live here, though we often forget that beyond these rolling hills and green pastures and through the bluegrass that there are other places that are worth exploring.

  • Becoming Santa Claus

    Shawn Reaves had forgotten his belly.
    A piece of padding stuffed inside his plush red Santa Claus suit, Reaves’ belly was nowhere to be found in his “dressing room,” a row of his costumes hanging from an exposed pipe off the side stage of the Grand Theatre in Frankfort.
    Although Reaves’ got the white beard covered, the Lawrenceburg resident hasn’t gone as far as to pack on the pounds for the role of Kris Kringle in “Miracle on 34th Street, the Play” scheduled to open this Thursday.
    Not intentionally, Reaves laughed.
