  • Life lessons in the mud

    Although I personally don’t get the fascination with running races through mud, these days lots of people do.
    A few years ago, my two daughters did a mud race together. My oldest daughter, Alison, said the obstacles freaked her out and she doesn’t like climbing cargo nets and was leery of leaping over fire.
    “Otherwise, the mud was fun,” she said. “Once you commit to being muddy and know you’re going to feel gross and will be cleaning mud out of your ears for weeks after, it’s just plain fun.”

    June 28, 1984 (30 Years Ago)
    A severe thunderstorm struck Bedford Saturday night. Some say, and it was reported on a Louisville television station that a small twister touched down here. Trees were uprooted and limbs taken off and scattered all around Bedford and surrounding districts. Little damage was done to buildings. However, there was extensive damage to the roof of Dow Dunlap’s home on Town Branch allowing interior damage from the subsequent rain.
