• I have come to the realization that the amount of time, energy and stress invested in hair is simply not worth the effort. When I was younger I would agonize for hours over my hair.

  • What has happened to Halloween?  Every year I launch into the planning and development phase of my All Hallows Eve décor. I develop a theme, search for props, and throw myself headlong into the project. Last year I saw a decoration with an intriguing name at a particular store. As I considered this item I was disappointed in the lack of imagination that went into the design. Stealing the name, I immediately began to plan my vision.

    The Bedford city commissioners are concerned about the city’s liability insurance.

And people in Trimble County are among those in the “growth” areas of the state who are paying a high price for inadequate roads. That was the message Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency’s board got today from Jack Fish, President of Kentuckians for Better Transportation, at a Bedford meeting.

  • My husband is much less stubborn than I; or perhaps more intelligent. He knows when it’s time to make a change in strategy when the first course fails. He has not once been flown like a kite.

    The Public Service Commission has ordered Louisville Gas and Electric Company to delay completion of its Trimble County plant until at least 1991. In an order signed this week, the Commission said the evidence presented in the case supported the delay for three reasons: ample generating capacity already exists in Kentucky; LG&E failed to demonstrate its ability to successfully market any excess power from the Trimble County unit; and the PSC needs more time to pursue statewide power planning options.

  • My horse is Biscuit. His color is called dun. This means he is a very light tan and he has a dark stripe running down his back. He also has zebra striping on his legs and his ears are edged with black. I’ve often heard it said that the pretty ones are crazy. Biscuit, while not crazy, is mildly neurotic. This horse has never met anything useful that wasn’t scary. He spooks at the smell of fly spray, hoof dressing, de-wormer, and anything else that he considers strange and unusual.
