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.

Robert D. Cooper can recall many cold, lonely nights during the time he spent fighting overseas in World War II. And while it may have been a cold night just a couple of weeks ago on Jan. 20, Cooper was anything but lonely. He was surrounded by a roomful of people at the Lighthouse Baptist Church in Nicholasville who were there to honor him and several other veterans at a presentation organized by Doug Day and the Freedom Fund Fest. Cooper was there to receive one of the highest honors awarded to anyone who served in the military during Word War II — the French Legion of Honor Medal.

LANCASTER - In a maroon Lady Lions Soccer sweatshirt, the logo "Smile, God Loves You" across the back in bold white letters, Don Pineur walks through his trailer, showing off pictures of the past. He stops to narrate the story behind one taken with his wife on a city street in the early 1940s. He prefers to talk in the kitchen, where his fridge is covered with more recent photos of kids, several others in frames, hung on walls or sitting on countertops. He seems more at ease when he can see them.

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.

Three members of a Gravel Switch family and a Michigan man admitted they wrapped up the body of Rusty Marshall, a Danville man, took it to Indiana in a horse trailer and buried it in a town where they grew marijuana. Michael Hays, 43, of Forkland Road, also pleaded guilty Friday in U.S. District Court to being the ringleader of a 10-year-old marijuana farm with members of his family and the Miller family of Lancaster. No one has been charged with Marshall's death, but it is being treated as a homicide by Indiana State Police.

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.

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.

An Elizabethan collar is known by many different names such as surgical collar, buster collar and an abbreviation called E-collar. There has never been a veterinary medical device to receive as much attention as the E-collar. It is the subject for countless jokes and comic strips. It really is an unnatural, cumbersome, funny looking contraption around the neck of a cat or dog. The E-collar is a cone-shaped hard plastic device placed around a patient’s neck to prevent the dog or cat from licking or chewing on their wound or surgical incision.
