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.

Be on the lookout: It moves at the speed of a trolling boat motor or a bobbing log. Length, could be 12, 15 or a gazillion feet long. Color might be green, could be pink and people in the know aren't ruling out purple. These are the legends of the monster in Herrington Lake. It seems that everyone with a fishing pole has a story about the monster, but the stories' sources are as elusive as the monster itself. Outdoors columnist Bud Barnard has heard about it, but doesn't know anyone who has seen it. "I just know there is supposed to be one there," he said.

The Kentucky Banker's Association calls it a “scheme” but unless - and until - legislators change the law, so called “third-party tax purchasers” will continue to profit from a policy that can lead to a forced sale of a family home. As the law stands, individuals, or companies formed for just this purpose, can purchase overdue property tax debt as an investment. The tax debt plus up to 12 percent interest as well as additional administrative and attorney fees increase the original debt substantially.

LEXINGTON - Next to the aquarium stocked with goldfish is a map cabinet. Across from it, Clint Land sits at a computer filled with the intimate details about the topography of more than two dozen central Kentucky lakes. "Bass aren't like goldfish," he says, gesturing toward the tank. "They don't stay in one place; they move. " Time to feed. Time for spring. Time to spawn. Instinct calls fish to move, playing on their simple nervous systems. Sport fishermen are called, perhaps by instinct, to hunt the bass, follow them and hook them.

Our lives were nuts,” Paul Martin said. Winchester native Paul Martin has been performing with country musician Marty Stuart for years, and plays bass for “The Marty Stuart Show.” Previously, he has performed with the Oak Ridge Boys and Exile.

Put simply, animals fight. No matter what species, at some point in time, for some reason, all animals will engage in fighting with their own species. Some fight for territory, dominance, food, protection of an owner, and many other reasons, depending on the particular animal. Dogs often fight one another with only the intention of warning or trying to scare the other. However, many dog fights are much more aggressive, with severe injury intended for each other. Just like many other medical conditions, such as diseases and parasites, dog fights tend to occur more in the spring and summer.
