  • Marion County's Most Interesting People: The Musician

    On Dec. 24, 2007, a fire destroyed many of the contents of Paul Childers' family's home, including his guitar.
    "It was personally the greatest thing that ever happened to me," said Childers, 19.
    About six months before the fire, Childers got his guitar, a Fender Squire Bullet, and it was damaged by the blaze. When the Kentucky Fellowship of Musicians found out, they chipped in to get him a new guitar.

  • Marion County's Most Interesting People: The Renaissance Man

    Jon Howard Michael, 74, of Bradfordsville could quite possibly be the most interesting person in Marion County.
    For starters, he has a photographic memory. He remembers, very vividly, every event of his life, starting at a very young age.

Talking with him can be overwhelming (in a good way) because he literally remembers everything.

    Rose Graves remembers standing outside the Marion County Public Library as a child wishing she could go inside. She said she doesn't really know why she couldn't go, only that she wasn't supposed to go there.
    “They always said, don’t you go to that library,” Graves said.
    Today, no one can keep Graves, 63, out of it. She visits at least four times a week to work on community projects or to research her own family history.

  • Seeing the forest and the trees

    If everything goes according to plan, a forest will surround TG Kentucky in 20 years.

    “This is not a landscaping project,” Tim Smith told Leadership Lebanon participants on Friday.
