    Dearest Kelly,

  • Family ties get donation for Hiestand House Museum

    The Hiestand House Museum is benefiting from Taylor Circuit Judge Dan Kelly's former campaign fund.

    State law spells out just how Kelly, who was appointed to the judgeship last year by Gov. Steve Beshear, is to close out his former senatorial campaign account. One of those ways is by donating the money to a charity.

    And, thanks to Kelly's wife Darlene's ancestry, the Hiestand House is getting a portion of that money.

    According to the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance, Kelly had $105,331.51 in his fund on Nov. 12, 2009.

  • Liver has to be the devil's doing

    While out on my route the other day, I stopped at a diner that featured liver and onions for the lunch special, something I hadn't seen in a lot of years.

    Eating used to be so simple. A couple of eggs with grits, sausage, bacon or country ham in the morning with homemade biscuits. A quick hamburger or a bowl of chili at noon, and evening was your basic meat and potatoes.
