  • VAN STOCKUM: A vicarious visit to France, Part 1; A wedding to remember

  • Curry’s gesture is much more than free shoes

    Like everyone in Kentucky, I have opinions on basketball.

    I’m worried about this year’s University of Kentucky team, a lot. I just don’t know if they have that ‘It’ factor. Or if they can guard anyone. Really, anyone.

    I’ve been surprised by this year’s University of Louisville team. Former coach Rick Pitino is gone, but this year’s team has that hungry look his underrated teams always had. They get after it and make teams work.

  • WHAT WE THINK: Holiday gifts can be more than just what’s in the box

    Most of the lights are shining – if this weather would just ever cooperate – trees are up and stockings are hung with care, and there’s no doubt that holiday gifts are starting to stack up.

    We’ve already lived through Gray Thursday, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday and, of course, Cyber Monday. Doesn’t it seem like we might be running out of days?

  • Salvation Army seeks Angel Tree help

     When we think of Christmas morning we imagine a family gathered around the Christmas tree with little ones shredding the wrapping paper away, eager to reveal the gift hidden inside. They light up with glee as they tightly hug their new doll or push a toy truck across the floor.

    But this isn’t the reality for every child on Christmas morning.

  • 1993: Yancey named Citizen of the Year honor

    10 years ago…

    In 2008, some of the most upscale places in Kentucky furnished their turkey day dinners with birds from Shelbyville. Places such as the English Grill at the Brown Hotel got their Thanksgiving dinners at Earth’s Promise Farm, where Sandy Corlett and Jason Tucker raised organic turkeys. In the previous year, they had raised and sold 5,000 broilers, each fed with a special type of feed brought in from Ohio and then allowed to roam free on the farm.
