  • Terror, then anger

    Two men stole her wedding band and engagement ring off her fingers and left purple bruises on her forearms.

    As easily, it seems, as it took two men to rob her in a home invasion last Friday morning at Reed’s Jean Drive residence.   
    They took cash, pills and jewelry.
    The two men also took Reed’s love of fresh air, the ability to open her windows and doors without fear.

  • COLUMN: Bowling Green on their minds

     

    A man in Kentucky sure is lucky

    To lie down in Bowling Green.

    If Anderson County sports fans have their way, they will be lying down in Bowling Green quite a bit over the upcoming school year. Maybe as much as The Everly Brothers.

    And that's a good thing.

    For anyone under the age of 45, Phil and Don Everly were 50's and early 60's rockers from western Kentucky. Their last hit single was a song about what is now the third largest city in Kentucky.
