    “We have moved into becoming a country buffet,” he said.  “This is the style of food I grew up cooking and eating.”

    Shelbyville’s William Markert has seen his share of the world.  His brief time in the military seventy years ago took him to England, Paris and Germany.

    On May 20, Markert and his daughter joined nearly 70 other veterans and their guardians on a flight from Lexington to Washington, D.C.

    The trip, sponsored by the University of Kentucky, presented the group with an opportunity to tour numerous memorials, accompanied by university president, Eli Capilouto.
