  • Very rarely do I see a film in which they show every detail of somebody getting shot in the head at point-blank range. It's even more rare for me to see this and laugh out loud.

    But that was the response from the audience watching Burn After Reading, the Coen Brothers' latest release.

    It's over-the-top in both humor and in violence, leading the audience from giggles to gasps and back in the blink of an eye.

  • Two school bus drivers from Shelby County have been named the best in the state, and with the many narrow roads and hairpin turns they must negotiate, they don't take the honor lightly.

    The Kentucky Association of Pupil Transportation named Rev. Robert Marshall as the state's School Bus Driver of the Year and Phil Morgan as the state's Special Needs Driver of the Year.

    George Blakeman, transportation coordinator for the district, nominated them for the awards and said both men are great at what they do. They were chosen from similar nominations from all other districts.
