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.

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.

It is one of the most common reasons that cats are brought into the veterinary clinic, yet it is also one of the least known to cat owners. They come in all shapes, sizes and locations, which is probably why many cat owners are unsure of what they are. Cat abscesses are seen in most every veterinary practice nearly every day. Depending on the stage of development of an abscess, it can look very different. Initially, a cat owner may notice a swollen area that seems to get larger in just a couple of days.

A Nicholasville police officer fired a shot while investigating a domestic-violence incident Saturday on Grinder Court. No one was injured. Officer Wesley Casey and Jessamine sheriff's deputy Carl Nickell were searching for Victor Bondarenko when they entered an apartment at 156 Grinder Court. Casey fired his gun at Bondarenko after the 35-year-old grabbed a handgun and pointed it at the officers, according to a news release from the Nicholasville Police Department. The round ricocheted off the kitchen counter and did not hit Bondarenko, who was hiding behind the counter.

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.

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.

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.

For the Martin family, life really is a circus. Four kids, professional music careers and a family group with a growing number of performances can be a bit chaotic. Parents Paul and Jamie had that chaos in mind when they named their fledgling band The Martin Family Circus in 2010. “Jamie had decided to come, she was working a corporate job, and I was on the road with Marty Stuart. 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.

Fewer fruits signify summer in Kentucky more than fresh blackberries. This wild fruit has been tamed through the years, but wild or tame, they are still satisfying The peak season for blackberries in Kentucky is June through July. A half cup serving of blackberries has only 35 calories, 7 grams of carbohydrates and 4 grams of fiber. They are also high in vitamin C and potassium. Blackberries and raspberries differ from other berries as they have fleshy segments. Blackberries are similar to raspberries, but they are larger, hardier and have a dark purple appearance.

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.

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.

Mike Thompson and his family don’t draw attention to themselves because of their famous relative, but they are not ashamed, either. “To my mom, he wasn’t ‘public enemy No. 1,’” Thompson said. His mother, Frances Thompson, 88, is the youngest sister to John Dillinger, the legendary bank robber still profiled in books and movies more than 80 years after his death. Thompson and his fiancé, Patty Kale, came to Danville on Saturday with his son, Travis, and his wife Megan, to see the Pioneer Playhouse production of “The Dillinger Dilemma,” written by local playwright and Danville native Elizabeth Orndorff.
