    She can't understand why everyone's making such a fuss, but Frances Moss is celebrating a milestone nonetheless.

    On Saturday, Moss will be 100 years old.

    "I really don't think it's any big deal," she said.

    Born in Campbellsville to Thomas and Fannie Newton, Moss spent most of her adult life in Louisville and returned to Campbellsville just a couple years ago.

    Moss said she's been lucky to have had good health most of her life, "... until I got about 90 and then I started falling apart."

  • It's time to unearth Lincoln family legends

    Many of us who have lived in LaRue County all our lives are descended from this region's earliest settlers.

    Our ancestors homesteaded in what was then Hardin County in the early 1800s, during the time the Lincoln family toughed it out at Sinking Spring Farm and Knob Creek. That means plenty of family legends, some with substantiation, have resurfaced with the focus on the Lincoln Bicentennial - the 200th celebration of the birth of our most famous native son, Abraham Lincoln.

  • Any savings is a good savings when buying drugs

    For some reason, it always seems more difficult to fork over the money for necessities than it does for luxuries. It's much more pleasant to spend money going to the movies than paying the electric bill.

    But the electric bill is a necessity for all of us. And so is medicine.

    A story in Monday's News-Journal gave the details on local pharmacies' generic drug programs, programs that are going to save us all some money.

    Generic drugs, according to the FDA, are exactly the same as brand-name drugs. They just cost less.
