  • Kentucky artist to display at LWC

    Works by Columbia artist Ken Page are on display through Thursday, Feb. 25 at Lindsey Wilson College. The show features paintings and sculptures.

    Page's works are featured in the Lucretia C. Begley Art Gallery, which is located in the college's W.W. Slider Humanities Center.

    The exhibit is especially meaningful for Page because it allows him to exhibit his works on the campus where he developed his skills as an artist.

    A graduate of Lindsey Wilson, Page studied under the late Helen Flatt, a legendary art professor who taught at Lindsey Wilson for almost 40 years.

    In the meantime, we encourage open, rational and intelligent discussion with factual information provided from both sides. See the story on today's front page.

  • Natural Resources Conservation Service announces signup to Grassland Reserve Program

  • New credit card rules seek to protect consumers

    The Federal Reserve has imposed new regulations on credit card companies, and that translates into more protection for consumers, local experts say.

    Approved by the Federal Reserve Board in January, the new rules went into effect on Feb. 22.

    In short, the new requirements means credit card companies will be forced to provide more information to customers such as advance warning of rate or fee increases and just how long it will take to pay off balances.

  • CU to host 'Canyons and Cars' photography exhibit

    When Stan McKinney drove across country last year in his 2007 Mustang GT, his camera was almost constantly by his side.

    When the trip was over, McKinney had passed through 11 states in 14 days, traveled 4,602 miles and taken more than 2,000 photographs of such places as the Grand Canyon, the Hoover Dam and the Painted Desert and Petrified Forest of Arizona.

    The community will have a chance to see some of the photographs McKinney took on the trip when his photography exhibit "Canyons and Cars" opens at the Campbellsville University Art Gallery.
