  • Anyone who catches an inside glimpse of Kate Bemiss' life might exclaim, "All this and family harmony, too?"

    But to Bemiss and her clan, that close-knit camaraderie goes together like, well, ice cream and cake. Or maybe fried chicken and mashed potatoes, or even  a perfectly grilled steak topped with plump sautéed mushrooms, with a fluffy baked potato oozing butter and sour cream.

    Getting hungry?

    Then Bemiss and her clan might be just the ticket if you need a private party catered.

  • Platoon 2 of the Shelbyville Fire Department will tell you -- being a firefighter is not always flashy, and the work can be tedious. But it’s the satisfaction that comes from doing something you care about side-by-side with people you care about that makes it all worthwhile.

    “It’s something I always wanted to do,” firefighter Jon Blank said. “After 10 years I still wake up ready to go to work. You get real close to your family here. There are a lot of good people here.”

  • To say that the locally produced independent film "Clancy" did well in its opening weekend would be putting it lightly.

    "It did extremely well. We were having to turn people away Friday and Saturday night because it was packed," said Melanie Scott, assistant manager of the Apex Village 8 Theater in Louisville. "This has been one of our biggest openings in a long time."

  •  A day or two after we landed on Guam, at about 11:30 p.m. on July 25, 1944, those of us at the Command Post that had been established at the base of the steep cliff near the beaches, heard a cacophony of machine-gun fire and explosive bursts coming from the top of the cliff.

  • Daniel Boone always claimed he was innocent of the charges of treason brought against him after an Indian attack on Boonesborough in 1778.

    Thursday night the public will have an opportunity to judge for themselves the truth he maintained.

    Painted Stone Settlers will present "Daniel Boone" at 7 p.m. Thursday at the Stratton Center, when living historian Scott New will present Boone's life through a first-person portrayal.
