  • Mother Nature tests our resolve

    For the second time in just six months, Mother Nature has again tested our resolve. The destructive winds that swept across Kentucky in September have been replaced by snow, ice and bitter cold. Although very different storms; the end result is much the same.

    A record number of Kentucky families are again without power, homes are damaged, lives have been lost and Kentucky is in a state of emergency. My thoughts and prayers are with the more than 600,000 families who lost power in the wake of this devastating winter storm.

  • A family found ... 59 years later

    You can go home again. Just ask Patty Martin.

    Martin, 59, was given up for adoption when she was just 10 months old. Nearly six decades later, she has found her birth family and says she feels like she has known them forever.

    Martin now lives in Littleton, Colo.

    Several of her aunts and uncles live in Campbellsville, and, after searching for her family for several years, she has reconnected with them.

    Martin says her adoptive parents told her at a young age that she had been adopted.

  • Digital TV transition delayed

    Congress has delayed the switch from analog to digital TV signals.

    Originally set for Feb. 17, the transition will now take place on June 12. The delay, lawmakers say, will give the estimated 6.5 million who aren't ready for the switch more time to prepare.

    The delay also gives the federal government a chance to add more funding for the converter box coupon program.

    Digital TV, also known as DTV, enables broadcasters to offer better picture and sound quality as well as interactive capabilities.
