This article, the first in a three-part series, was researched by Tony Gaier, who is compiling the history of the Danville and Boyle County fire departments primarily from newspaper accounts and City Council meeting minutes. Contact him at reiagt@voyager.net or write him at 10873 Reed Road, Versailles, Ohio 45380. The city recently proposed replacing its existing Public Safety Building, which houses the fire and police departments, with new or remodeled facilities. The existing station at 410 W. Main St. was constructed in the late 1960s and occupies the same location that its predecessor did. A building constructed in 1913 was torn down in the late fall of 1966 to make way for the current building, which is also known as the Ryan Crum Nelson Safety Building.

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.

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.

Boyle County Public Library will host a program and book signing with Obie Slater for his book, “Obie Slater Remembers Club Cherry,” at 2 p.m. Sunday in the community room at the library. Slater's book highlights his time as the manager of Club Cherry, a Lebanon nightclub, which had a constant stream of performers such as Ike and Tina Turner, Otis Redding, B.B. King and Ray Charles. Under his management, Slater turned Club Cherry into one of Lebanon's hottest clubs. As Slater says in his book, “The stars kept coming and their popularity kept growing ... so did the reputation of the Club Cherry.” Club Cherry was part of a connected string of music venues throughout the eastern and southern United States known as the Chitlin' Circuit.

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.

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.

For one Lincoln County couple, turtles are a family affair. Not the slow-moving animals with hard shells, but the deliciously decadent candies that go surprisingly fast. For Curtis Hannah and his wife, Meredith Young-Hannah, the making of the turtles has become a holiday tradition they enjoy with Meredith's mom, Martha Frakes. Frakes travels to their Waynesburg home with her husband, Don, all the way from their home in Dunnellon, Fla., to make the turtles on a Friday early in December, and the three enjoy an early family Christmas celebration on Saturday with at least 25 family and friends.

Music is the universal language and the Internet makes access to music ridiculously simple to obtain. There are many different ways to obtain music on the Internet - some are legal; others are not.  Although the Internet unfortunately has bred an “everything should really be free” state of mind in many users, a second thought should be considered when it comes to music. Many have suffered serious legal problems by obtaining music via file-sharing sites. If people aren't careful about how their music is obtained, they could end up with some serious legal problems.

This bicentennial year of the War of 1812 has so far seen little commemoration of America's “second Revolution.” Kentuckians volunteered in numbers and played a significant role in the outcome of the war. Approximately 25,000 Kentucky men saw some type of military service. Our state's casualties exceeded all the other states, largely due to two disastrous battles and their aftermath which involved the slaughter of prisoners - the River Raisin Massacre and Dudley's Defeat. Clark County certainly did its part in the conflict, raising ten companies headed by John Martin, Wiley Brassfield, Isaac Cunningham, James Sympson, Samuel R. Combs, Leslie Combs, Thomas Wornall, John V. Bush, Robert Scobee, and Joseph Clark.

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.
