    Not too long after posting a video on Facebook of a woman suspected of several gas drive-offs, Bardstown Police began receiving tips from the public identifying the suspect.
    “Within an hour, we were receiving info on who she was,” said Police Chief Rick McCubbin. “It didn’t take long at all.”

    “We took three and a half million pounds of waste out of there when we cleaned it up,” said Keith Brock, the Marion County solid waste coordinator.
    To prevent future dumping, the fiscal court approved constructing a fenced-in lookout, and it has successfully prevented people from dumping more trash over the edge.
    But another problem has developed — graffiti.

  • Freefalling

    Flying 9,500 feet above Washington County, a Cessna 182, a single engine plane, roars at around 75 mph. With four others, you sit on the floor crammed in like sweaty human sardines. The only person who has a chair is the pilot.
    Suddenly, the door opens letting the wind blast in and the temperature drops to goose bump levels.
    Hooked up to an instructor you met only hours ago, you put one leg out, and then the other. With adrenaline racing, he rocks you back-and-forth. This is really happening, there’s no turning back, and you have no control.
