  • Harvest Time

    Hay rides. Mazes. Picking your own pumpkin. These are fall traditions John and Delaina Russell wanted to bring back.

    "It's just something we always wanted to do," Delaina said. "We wanted to get people out and enjoy and experience farming and nature."

  • Distracted driving is deadly driving

    "I took my eyes off the road for only a second - and then, it happened."

    Distracted driving is a common occurrence. More than 53,000 distracted driving-related crashes occurred last year in Kentucky, resulting in more than 15,000 injuries and 199 fatalities.

    To address this problem, the Kentucky Office of Highway Safety recently kicked-off a "Distracted Driving is Deadly Driving" campaign aimed at changing driver behavior. The campaign ties in perfectly with the nationwide effort to reduce distracted driving crashes.

  • Homecoming memories

    I love this time of year. The fall mornings and evenings are cool, giving me hope that winter is on its way.

    Fall is a time for children to play in the leaves, enjoy a last few warm days and then begrudgingly drag out long-sleeved clothing.

    It's also a time for homecoming, whether it's a family reunion, church revival or something of a larger scale such as Campbellsville University's annual homecoming festivities.
