Jerry Allender drives a lot of places. He routinely leaves his Wilmore home to come to Nicholasville; he makes an annual 100-mile trip north; and this year, he drove to the reenactment of the Battle of Perryville. But Allender doesn’t sit behind the wheel of a car; he holds the reins as he sits in the carriage being pulled by his horse. The horse and carriage started as a hobby and turned into a business for Allender, and now he hopes to have others join him next year for a scenic trip back to Perryville.

When Matthew Tolson went to Manchester, N.H., in March 2006, he ran into trouble. Tolson, a suspect in the 2002 murders of Bo Upton and Ryan Shangraw, was lured to a nightclub, forced at gunpoint into a Mercedes-Benz, ordered to disrobe, robbed of cash, a cell phone and four gold teeth, and was shot at as he ran away. In a story that is sometimes stranger than fiction, police found Tolson when they responded to a call of a naked man pounding on doors in a residential area and calling for help.

LEXINGTON — He played for a Tennessee high school powerhouse — Alcoa — and grew up within minutes of the University of Tennessee campus. Yet Randall Cobb says it was his parents, not a coach or player, who had the biggest influence on what has already been a highly successful football career. “It was probably my dad who had the biggest influence,” said Cobb, UK’s versatile junior who is a preseason all-Southeastern Conference selection. “He has always been there supporting me, but he has also pushed me to be better than what I was. “I wouldn’t be nowhere near where I am at now if it was not for him and the things he did for me and the sacrifices he made to get my family where we are today.

A “foreign body” is the term we use to describe anything other than food that your pet may have swallowed. It can be very complicated to determine whether a particular foreign body will make your pet sick. The most difficult cases of foreign body ingestion occur whenever the pet owner doesn't know that their pet swallowed something. Also, many foreign bodies that pets swallow are not dense enough to show up on an X-ray. However, the statistics about pets swallowing foreign objects may shock you. About 95 percent of all foreign objects swallowed by pets will pass without causing any problems.

While most high-school coaches are also teachers and earn the bulk of their pay in the classroom, they are also compensated for their time on and off the field developing their programs. It may just be a few extra bucks on each paycheck, but over the course of a school year, some teachers can increase their annual salaries by several thousand dollars. A teacher making $45,651 - the average salary paid in Jessamine County in the 2011-12 school year - could increase his or her pay 10 percent or more with any of the seven highest-paying head-coaching positions.

FRANKFORT (AP) - Kenny Bishop was living his dream, standing in front of adoring fans in auditoriums across the country, singing gospel songs with his family as part of one of the most popular groups in Christian music. That ended in 2001 when the group disbanded unexpectedly and without explanation. Five years later, Bishop is back on the southern gospel charts with an album that sheds light on his departure. All the songs are about grace, including one based on the biblical story of the prodigal son, a young man who left his family for a life of sinful fun that ended with him having lost everything and living with pigs.

LIBERTY — A Kentucky UFO-alien abduction case caught the eye of local playwright Liz Orndorff several years ago, but she tucked her idea for a production based on the claims of three Casey County women into the back of her mind to let it simmer. Although the incident happened more than 30 years ago, Mona Stafford — the only living witness — still hasn’t figured out how to tuck it into the back of hers. “High Strangeness” premiers tonight at West T. Hill Community Theatre in Danville, and a few folks who attended Thursday night’s dress rehearsal said the play is not only funny but quite moving.

LEXINGTON - A Harrodsburg couple have filed a federal lawsuit alleging Boyle County's top officials conspired with a farm manager to keep them from taking care of their horses, causing their business to lose money and animals to starve. James and Sandra Lattanzio, who list their address as a post office box in Harrodsburg, filed the complaint without an attorney last week in U.S. District Court in Lexington. The lawsuit alleges that County Attorney Richard Campbell, Judge-Executive Harold McKinney, Sheriff LeeRoy Hardin and Animal Control Officer Dan Turcea all worked together with Thomas Ackerman and Mahogany Hill Farm to keep the Lattanzios from tending to their horses, which were boarded at the farm on Airport Road.
