  • Four-day, 400-mile sale across Kentucky is June 5-8

    The first weekend in June isn't far away, especially if you're getting items together to sell at the U.S. 68 400-mile yard sale.

    The annual yard sale stretches from east to west across the state through 60 communities ... from Maysville to Paducah. This year's sale is June 5-8.

    Marilyn Clarke, executive director of the Taylor County Tourism Commission, came up with the idea for the sale several years ago when she was looking to do something that would create some tourism business for small towns located off the major highways.

  • Grace Notes: Diary of a terrible friendship

    Last year, my granddaughter's best friend was 4-year-old Braden because he lived next door and had a trampoline. Braden liked Caroline because, at 5, she was someone other than his baby brother.

    Except for the occasional meltdown because one or both of them were tired, the friendship worked well. Then Braden moved away, Connor moved in, and Caroline has a new best friend.

    Why can't adult friendships be that easy?
