Today's Features

  • Broadway. The name alone gives performers chills. It’s the pinnacle of live theater across the world, encompassing 40 theaters in Manhattan.

    If you’re on Broadway, you’ve made it big.

    And that’s where you can find Westport’s Mara Newbery.

    Newbery is performing as part of the first Broadway cast of “A Christmas Story — The Musical” through Dec. 30.

  • The Nez Perce Trail Foundation elected a La Grange resident as its president during the foundation’s annual meeting Oct. 19.

    The Nez Perce Trail Foundation works closely with the Nez Perce National Historic Trail which is administered by the U.S. Forest Service. Congress passed the National Trails Act in 1968 and the Nez Perce National Historic Trail was recognized by an act of Congress in 1986. 

  • Eighteen new artists have adjudicated into the Kentucky Crafted program, the Kentucky Arts Council's marketing assistance program that provides opportunities for artists to expand their market reach.

Artists are accepted into the program based on artistic excellence and market readiness as judged by an independent panel of art and craft industry professionals.



  • Family Feud host Steve Harvey and his no-holds-barred brand of comedy are back for a new season of America's favorite family competition. And this time, Harvey welcomes a family from Oldham County. 

    The Hartman family from Crestwood faces off against the Williams family from Dallas for the chance to win up to $100,000 and a brand new car, along with some serious bragging rights. 

    The show featuring the Hartman family airs at 12:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 10 on WDRB (Channel 41).

  • After 117 years, DeHaven Baptist Church is getting a facelift.

    The historical structure, located in downtown La Grange, is undergoing major exterior renovations beginning this week to restore the masonry and protect the structure.

    Keith Bradford, chair of the church’s property and space committee, said the restoration will help protect the building for future generations.

  • A La Grange health clinic is reaching out to even more patients with the installation of a women’s wellness kiosk.

    The Hope Health Clinic opened in September to serve the underinsured residents of Oldham, Henry, Trimble and Carroll counties.

    The kiosk, which looks like a small automated teller machine, allows women to access modules about a variety of wellness issues, including asthma, cancer, depression, domestic violence and smoking cessation.

  • The sun glints off an aluminum can alongside Fendley Mill Road. For two La Grange women, this can is a sought-after prize.

    It’s not just one can, though, it’s a whole beer case stuffed with empty cans.

    “Look, a treasure!” says Sue Macuch.

  • If last week’s Hatfields and McCoys miniseries on the History Channel has sparked your interest in the feud, you’re not alone — more than 13.9 million people tuned into the series’ debut.

    The story has attracted interest for decades, with dozens of books and films published on the subject. There are at least nine historic sites in Kentucky and at least as many in West Virginia, most open to the public.

  • Hosparus needs volunteers to provide patient support and assistance with its bereavement program in Henry, Oldham, Shelby, Spencer and Trimble counties.
