  • This may be the time to go honky punk

    When I was a kid, I found an old 78 record in our basement that featured Hank Williams singing "Cold, Cold Heart" on one side, and "Dear John" on the other. Those old 78s were nigh indestructible, as were the 45s that came later. I know this because "Dear John" is hanging on my family room wall, right beside my Dean Dillon "Slick Nickel" album and my James Dean poster.

    Anyway, I was listening to the radio the other day and heard an introduction for Hank Williams III.

  • Christmas dinner at the White House

    For many, the best Christmases are those that provide lasting memories. For Teresa Wolford, this Christmas is one she'll never forget.

    Last year, Wolford's brother, Jesse Bailey, called her and said a florist's position had opened up at the White House. At the time, Bailey owned JLB Floral in Alexandria, Va.

    "I told him, 'You can't pass this up. This is the opportunity of a lifetime.'"

    Bailey took his sister's advice, and four months later he got the job.

    A few weeks ago, Bailey called his sister again, this time offering her an opportunity of a lifetime.

  • Merry Christmas!

    And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed.

    (And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.)

    And all went to be taxed, every one into his own city.

    And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and lineage of David:)

  • Deaton is Thomas' first football signee

    New Campbellsville University head football coach Perry Thomas did not have to look far for his initial signee when he inked one of the most famous last names in Central Kentucky with Somerset quarterback Ross Deaton on Thursday.

    Deaton, who did not play this fall, threw for 3,726 yards and 43 touchdowns to lead the Briar Jumpers to a 9-5 record in 2006 before being eliminated by eventual Class A state champion Newport Central Catholic.
