  • Perfect Attendance Program
  • KERF

    Walker’s Bend where I began my life was rural, really rural, not gentrified country or suburban—rural. The main difference between rural and city, you have more bathroom options. Self-sufficient, we raised our own food, butchered our own meat, we weren’t part of the farm to table movement, we were garden to mouth.

  • Hushing Jesus up

    Years ago I visited with a woman who sold biblical toys, action figures of Bible characters like Moses, David and Goliath and Jesus.
    The Jesus doll, about twice the size of a G.I. Joe, had movable fingers and joints and if you pressed a button on Jesus’ back he talked.
    As the woman demonstrated, Jesus started reciting Bible verses -- and wouldn’t stop.
    I was there to interview the woman for a newspaper story and tried to have a conversation with her but couldn’t concentrate because Jesus wouldn’t stop talking.

  • Analysis of state’s traffic accident trends offered

    About a decade ago, Kentucky started to see a welcome trend as the number of highway fatalities began a steady decline.
    Totals that regularly exceeded 900 a year before 2007 dropped to 638 in 2013, a figure not seen in the commonwealth since the 1940s.
    Unfortunately, that was as low as it would go. The number of fatalities on our roads last year was almost a fifth higher than the benchmark set just two years earlier, and through the first seven-plus months of this year, it’s eight percent ahead of where it was last August.

  • Bridge documentary wins Emmy

    A television documentary commissioned by Louisville ad and PR agency Doe-Anderson to tell the story of a small-town bridge project has been honored with an Emmy Award – something not typically associated with the world of advertising and public relations.
