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.

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.

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.

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.

The news of a school bus crash or a child killed while boarding or unloading a school bus sends a terrifying tremor through a community. School bus crashes are rare. In fact, school buses are one of the safest forms of transportation in the nation - nearly 2,000 times safer than the family car. School buses are designed to withstand all but the most serious crashes without death or serious injury. Most injuries and fatalities related to school bus safety occur outside a bus rather than inside one. Most people would never think of deliberately injuring a young person, but lack of attention by drivers puts our young people getting off and on a school bus in danger.

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.

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.

McAFEE - Since high school, Gordon "Cappy" Wheeler dreamed of being a champion horse trainer in Kentucky, and he fanned the flames of that dream in Mercer County. During his summer vacations, Wheeler would leave his Virginia home to work at the farm of legendary Saddlebred trainer Tom Moore. "He was very envious of what Dad had going and he wanted to get close to Kentucky," said Mason Moore, Tom Moore's son, who has known Wheeler since those days 20 years ago. Of course, if your grandfather is beer titan Adolphus Busch III, horsey dreams are at your fingertips.
