  • April 26 was my dad’s birthday. It is hard to believe he has been gone seven years already. He lived a good long life, and I have good memories of him that will always be with me.  
    In our family, it was customary to get a special birthday dinner, and my mom was a great cook. She would make an elaborate birthday dinner for Dad, trying to outdo herself with “gourmet” dishes, while most of the time he just wanted a t-bone and fried potatoes.  

  • Preliminary statistics indicate that 13 people died in 13 separate crashes on Kentucky roadways from Monday, April 18, through Sunday, April 24.

    Two motorcycle involved fatal crashes occurred in Fayette County.  The victims were not wearing helmets.

  • Saddle up and buckle up. The Kentucky State Police are featuring a legendary ride for their 2011 Trooper Island raffle. With a heritage that dates back to the All-American muscle cars of the early 1960s, today’s updated Ford Mustang GT Coupe offers increased power, smart handling, responsible fuel economy and a distinctive growl.
    This pony is fast. Using advanced technology, its 5.0 liter, dual overhead cam V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission deliver 412 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque.

  • The Kentucky State Police along with the DEA will participate in a national prescription take-back initiative to remove potentially dangerous controlled substances from our communities on April 30.
    Post 15 will accept expired, unused or unwanted prescription drugs, non-controlled and over the counter substances from local citizens from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. CST Saturday, April 30.  Intra-venous solutions, injectibles and syringes will not be accepted.
