  • Why can't we all do good deeds?

    I am a pain in the butt to my friends sometimes. I know it. They know it.

    In this techno world we live in today, there are way too many easy scams out there. So when my friends forward e-mails to me, I nearly always question them with a quick Google or Snopes search.

    This past weekend, however, I had to eat my words. And I was quite happy to do so. The e-mail I was received was a story about a 4-year-old girl who wrote a letter to God after her dog died.

    The letter read:

  • Coomer-Hunt

    Donnie and Judy Coomer of Greensburg and Freddie and Sandy Jolly of Glasgow announce the engagement of their daughter, Laura Kaye Coomer, to Michael Garland Hunt, son of Gary and Marlena Hunt of Campbellsville and Ricky and Kathy Morgan of Greensburg.

    Coomer is employed at Crossroads Family Medicine of Campbellsville.

    Hunt is employed by TransCorr Inc. of Indiana.

    The private wedding ceremony will take place at noon ET on Saturday, Aug. 30 at the Old Courthouse in Greensburg.

  • King of the Castle

    Doug Quinn remembers riding by the castle on Versailles Road in Lexington many times. And for all those times he saw the castle, he never thought he'd find himself inside. But, today, that's exactly where he is.

    Quinn, an account executive for Wholesale Hardwood Interiors, is serving as WHI project manager on the castle restoration.

    WHI is providing all of the moldings, doors, ceiling work and other woodwork.

  • Jobless graduates wonder why

    Laura Edwards thought she was starting her job search too soon. After all, it was January and she wasn't set to graduate until July. She soon discovered she might have started too late.

    "It's discouraging," said Edwards, who received her degree in business administration from Campbellsville University.

    "There are not that many opportunities around here. Everything I've applied for, they either had someone in mind or someone's [family member] was taking the job."

  • Palestine Baptist hosting car wash Saturday

    The money raised will help fund a mission trip to New Orleans in October.

  • Priceless memories

    Only my daughter, Laura, has the power to get me to eat a raw quail egg. We did so last Thursday night at our favorite sushi restaurant in Charlotte, N.C., where she lives. I was in town for a conference.

    It's been five years since she moved away from home, and I think I've finally, finally, finally (maybe) stopped thinking of her as some wild feral child who needs me hovering over her, guiding her every move, breath, decision and thought.

    She's 25 now, making more money than I am, finishing her fifth year of a two-year college, dating a guy who treats her well.
