    CARY, ILL - The clinic's five resident cats may have changed addresses, but they clearly are at home with The Animal Doctor.

    They claimed as their own the area that was to be the employee lounge - a sun-soaked, second-floor vantage point overlooking the pond in Jaycee Park. T.A.D. - the group's dean and business' namesake - was abandoned in 1996. Forrest, who had surgery at 6 weeks old to remove restrictive tissue in his esophagus, is the youngster.

The poetic words and statements are infused with gospel, folk, country and Broadway style music to bring a tribute to America's past to life on stage.

    A group of self-advocates, disability rights activists and families of people with disabilities have joined to denounce the portrayal of people with intellectual disabilities in the film, which opened nationwide last Wednesday.

    The film, which has sparked boycotts and demonstrations across the country, features a character named "Simple Jack," who is referred to as a "retard," "moron" and "imbecile" in the movie.

  • Kentucky Historical Society Research Librarian Don Rightmyer will present a program on the Civil War in Kentucky for the Taylor County Historical Society on Tuesday, Aug. 19.

  • Today is a holy day. Some churches designate certain days as holy days of obligation, which (I think) means obligatory attending of services on days you otherwise wouldn't.

    But today, for me at least, is a holy day of non-obligation, of free will and pleasure.

    It's raining, although that doesn't particularly make it holy. It does help, however. At least today. At least that's what I think.

  • Campbellsville Baptist Church will host "No Man Left Behind 2008" tomorrow and Saturday in the Christian Life Center.
