  • Jeanne Kemper of Bagdad has been so busy cooking and baking for the past month that she has been going nonstop, getting her 45 entries ready to enter in the Kentucky State Fair.

    And as usual, she really cleaned up after all the cooking, earning 33 ribbons in the honey cookery and bread categories – 21 were blue ribbons – as well as the sweepstakes prize for each of those categories.

    But this year – her 28th for competing in the state fair – she said something strange happened that really shocked her.

  • Not only Shelby County but also the entire state of Kentucky has lost a passionate advocate for the people with the passing of Laurel True.

    True described her husband as an advocate for people everywhere who were in need.

    “When people think of him, they will remember his service to the people of Kentucky, for his caring for the unloved, the forgotten, the elderly, the mentally ill, for everyone throughout the state,” she said.

  • On Thursday night, Steven Lee Cook will do something he has done hundreds of times. He will walk onto a stage, grab a microphone, stare into the lights-hidden faces of thousands and unleash The Voice. He will break into a song you likely have heard and maybe even loved, and he will perform with only one knee-knocking difference from all those other stages and microphones: Cook is now 60 years old, and he hasn’t been part of a big-time performance in two decades, since, well, his voice was his life.
