  • Aug. 9, 2013 is a day that changed Jesse and Coury Osbourne’s lives forever.
    It’s the day their home on North Spalding Avenue in Lebanon was nearly destroyed by an electrical fire.
    No one was home when the fire started except their beloved cat Moe, who sadly didn’t survive.
    Every detail of that day is still very vivid in Coury’s mind. She was at work at Marion County High School when she got the terrifying news.

  • With frigid temperatures and wind chills expected in the coming days, the Kentucky Division of Water reminds citizens to protect the water systems in their homes and businesses from freezing.
    When water freezes, it expands. When water freezes in a pipe and expands enough, the pipe bursts, water escapes and serious damage results. Pipes in attics, crawl spaces and outside walls are all vulnerable to freezing, especially if there are cracks or openings that allow cold outside air to flow across the pipes.

    Mention the smells of Christmas and most people have little trouble ticking off their favorites: the perfume of evergreen, the citrusy smell of fruit in the Christmas stockings, cinnamon spice tea brewing, the aroma of gingerbread cookies and pumpkin bread baking.
    So popular are these smells that they’ve been packaged in Christmas aerosol sprays, candles, and refresher oils.
    Not so with the New Year.
