  • Early Days for 9-11

     

    TEN YEARS AGO

    Sept. 9, 2004

    A surprise retirement party was given for Thomas Matney and Eugene Matney on Saturday, July 31, at Green River Lake State Park.

    Tebbs Bend is becoming known for more than just its Civil War history. It's also the place to go for a 3-mile-long flea market.

    Jamie Ennis, a 1999 Campbellsville High School graduate, recently returned from a five-week study abroad in England.

  • Voters lose when candidates feud

    A campaign bus that doesn't have the proper permits to carry passengers. A campaign manager who resigned because of rumors he might be connected to an improper donation in Iowa last year.

    These are the topics it seems the campaigns for both sides of the U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky want to talk about.

    Of course, the candidates don't want to talk about their own campaign problems. They want to talk about their opponent's.

  • Controlling our rage

    The driver cut in front of me, honking his horn while sticking his middle finger out his car window, pointing it in my direction. 

    "What's he so mad about?" I remember asking myself.

    I had apparently failed to move fast enough when the light for the right-turn lane signaled green.

    That wasn't the first time someone had so visibly disapproved of my driving. I admit I'm not NASCAR driving material. I once had a friend tell me that driving with me was like being a passenger with Mr. Magoo at the wheel.

  • Emotions from 9/11 emerge years later

    President George W. Bush considered it the Pearl Harbor of the 21st century.

    Ask someone where they were during the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, and they can tell you without having to stop and think about it.

    From the first words they heard about the attacks to who they held hands with during a moment of silence, most Americans can remember every vivid detail from that awful day. My story is a bit different - in fact at times I have felt uncomfortable sharing it.
