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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

LEXINGTON - Next to the aquarium stocked with goldfish is a map cabinet. Across from it, Clint Land sits at a computer filled with the intimate details about the topography of more than two dozen central Kentucky lakes. "Bass aren't like goldfish," he says, gesturing toward the tank. "They don't stay in one place; they move. " Time to feed. Time for spring. Time to spawn. Instinct calls fish to move, playing on their simple nervous systems. Sport fishermen are called, perhaps by instinct, to hunt the bass, follow them and hook them.

A mansion at the dead end of a street that springs upon unsuspecting drivers in the darkness of the night. A nurse at the hospital who checks on patients more than 60 years after her death.

As Halloween draws near, The Advocate-Messenger decided to check out these ghost tales. Read on - if you dare.

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.

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.

Lemiel Stiddom stood in the soft grass on the banks of Cave Run Lake near Stoney Cove, remembering. "The old house sat here," he said, pointing to a small grassy area between the dam and the water, "and the church sat to the right," motioning toward the rocks and shallow water a few feet away. Stiddom, on a recent visit to Stoney Cove, recalled life in the area before the Licking River was flooded 40 years ago. Looking out over the water, he remembered some of the local landmarks that vanished when the lake was constructed, landmarks that were torn down, moved, or simply flooded by the large reservoir; neighbors' homes, farms, old cemeteries and the nearby church, Lewis Chapel, were some landmarks he named.
