    Think life-sized Lincoln Logs. That's how Andy Mills describes his job of tearing down and rebuilding antique cabins.

    Mills, who owns and operates American Antique Cabin Co. in Springfield, spent last week single-handedly rebuilding an early 1800s-era cabin on the Jacob Hiestand House Museum property.

    It's the final part of a project which will represent an 1820s-era plantation slave quarters. The site had earlier been prepared by Utah Canada, Mike Dobson and Rodney Dudley.

  • U.S. Senatorial candidate visits community

    An entrepreneur and former Kentucky Secretary of Commerce, Lunsford brought his message of change to the campaign stop, saying the nation should no longer accept the status quo.

    "I think we have a system that is corrupt because it is 'pay to play,'" Lunsford said. "Our generation is effectively leaving a mess for our children and grandchildren to clean up."

    But Lunsford says he wants to change the course.

  • Man has probation revoked, gets two-year sentence

    A Campbellsville man has had his probation revoked and will spend two years in prison for violating the terms of his sex offender registration.

    Bruce Warr, 52, of Lakeway Motel, Room 7, appeared before Taylor Circuit Court Judge Allan Bertram on Tuesday, Sept. 16.

    In April 2006, Warr pleaded guilty to failure to comply with the terms of his sex offender registration. A month later, he was sentenced to five years' probation.

    This past June, Bertram passed on revoking Warr's probation because he was pursuing treatment and making court-ordered payments.

    October is Roadside PRIDE Month in southern and eastern Kentucky.
