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.

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.

Rep. Lonnie Napier of Lancaster has opened a political can of worms by introducing a bill in the state legislature that proposes random drug testing for those who receive welfare. I support his bill. Those against the idea say it may violate the Fourth Amendment rights of citizens who are innocent of any crime. But if you receive your total cost of living from government, you are essentially a ward of the state, which changes the relationship with government. Just like Mom and Dad wrote the rules until you left the house, wards of the state must submit to the authority of those who provide their room and board — the taxpayers.

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.

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.

PERRYVILLE - After serving a few years as manager of Perryville Battlefield Historic Site, Kurt Holman had answered hundreds of questions from park visitors about the pivotal 1862 Civil War battle. Not that he minded trying to respond to the queries - after all, Holman is a Civil War buff with capital "B" as well as a descendant of a Union solider - but he started thinking of a way visitors could get answers to their questions if he wasn't around. "I jotted down some of the most frequently asked questions we'd received from visitors, and then I polled my staff," said Holman.

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.

SOUTH FORK - Paul Martin is a small, wiry man with a higher-pitched voice, sharp features and kind nature that lends him an air of a wizened old elf. Beneath a broad-brimmed black hat, he is dressed in all black, sharp as tack, even though he has just pedaled three miles on his bicycle from Cedar Hill Mennonite Church, where some visiting Mennonite brethren from Iowa had just held forth. Martin is back at Dutchman's Market now. It's the store he and his late wife Ruth opened in 1982, one the first businesses to set up shop in the start-up Mennonite community in southern Casey County.
