  • Wings of Hope

    The small French man approached Jean-Pierre Garnier. The man, Bernard Guirand, was looking for a relative of 1st Lt. Robert Kelley, who had been the pilot of a plane that crashed more than 61 years ago.

    Garnier introduced him to Kelley’s daughter, Barbara Brady of Lebanon, who was attending the ceremony honoring the victims of two plane crashes at Crête du Cheval Blanc (White Horse Ridge) two days apart in the aftermath of World War II.

    Guirand handed Brady a set of pilot’s wings.

  • Art on wheels

    Pulling up to Garrett Thompson's workshop, you're likely to hear AC/DC or Johnny Cash blaring from inside.

    "That's what gets my mojo going," Thompson said.

    Regardless of what music accompanies him, Thompson's mind is set on doing a good job, not just for his customers, but also for himself.

    Thompson's studio is nestled in a corner of Marion County, near the Nelson/LaRue County line, on Highview Pike in Raywick.

  • Some old things and something new

    Today's edition marks the beginning of what we hope will become a regular feature.

    With all due respect to Fred Rogers, we have started something we have dubbed "People in Your Neighborhood."

    Our intent is for this to be a different kind of feature for our newspaper, and a new way to point the spotlight on some interesting people in our community.

    Sometimes we get so caught up in covering local government, community events and, yes, crime (or at least accusations of crime) that we miss some of the wonderful people living right next door.
