    That’s the plot of Shelby County resident William Greer’s first book, which was published two weeks ago.

    Greer also has another book coming out soon, a nonfiction work, based on his true-life experiences in Vietnam.

    What’s more, he has a third book that was recently accepted by his publisher.

    Believe it or not, there is something even more amazing than a novice writer having three books accepted and published all in the same year.

    What in the world could that be, you ask?

  • Clarence Miller achieved much in his life before passing away Wednesday night at the age of 98, but his true legacy might be his deep love for his community.

    So members of the Bagdad Ruritan Club are trying to collect money to pay the $225-a-month bill from Kentucky Utilities until the end of the year, when they hope to help form a better solution.
