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.

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.

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.

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.

A small, unlikely seed planted a year ago when Prince William married Catherine Middleton finally put forth a few green shoots in London last week. There, at St. James's Palace, the London home of the new royal couple, three members of the Danville Sister Cities Commission and three other Danville supporters in London presented Kentucky gifts. When William married Kate, HM Queen Elizabeth II named them not only Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, but also Baron and Baroness of Carrickfergus, the Northern Ireland city that has been officially linked to Danville as a Sister City since 2008.  It was the idea of the Danville Sister Cities Commission to invite the royal couple to Danville.

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.

The bank may not have been open, but the shot counted just the same. Senior guard Kyle Roby banked in a 20-foot jump shot with 1.5 seconds to play in overtime as Centre College rallied to defeat Oglethorpe 74-72 Friday night at Alumni Gymnasium. Roby said the winning play was originally designed for freshmen Thomas Britt or Matt Nestheide, but both were guarded closely and couldn't get a shot off. Roby then used a Coy Zerhusen screen to get off the shot that gave the Colonels a win. "I tried to draw contact and I lost the ball partially as I went up for the shot," Roby 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.

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.

Last week, I discussed canine noses, their scenting ability and some of the symptoms a responsible dog owner should notice that might spell a problem. This week, let's think about eyes. I always cringe when I hear of a puppy born blind, and I am in awe when I meet (or even hear about) the brave families that elect to adopt such a pup. I also have to smile when these families assure me that “it isn't as difficult as it seems, since the pup doesn't know what sight is and therefore, it compensates.” But let's think about the normal dog that is born with sight but develops a problem.
