  • More than 100 injured veterans spent Monday on a wet ride through Oldham County, all in the name of raising awareness of their cause.

    The cyclists were part of the United Healthcare Ride 2 Recovery Bluegrass Challenge, a weeklong, 450-mile cycling trip from Covington to Nashville, Tenn.

    Their trip led them down U.S. 42 on Monday for a quick lunch stop at the North Oldham Fire Department’s Skylight station. Kroger and the United Service Organizations (USO) provided lunch. It was the second day of the seven-day journey south.

  • In James 5:16 we read, “The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.” As Christians we are to desire righteousness, that is, we are to live lives as holy as we can. We recognize we will never be free from sin, but we make no excuses. The more we are able to do this the more powerful and effective our prayers will be. I want powerful and effective prayers. What about you?

  • Becoming an Eagle Scout is a goal of thousands of Boy Scouts across the U.S., and is usually achieved by the time a scout reaches his late teens.

    So when Prospect resident Logan Salazar earned the honor before his 13th birthday, it took a big achievement and amplified it.

    “To be that focused and to get that much done at 12 years old is huge,” Don Vogel, Logan’s scoutmaster, said. “And it’s not lost on him.”

    The Duncan Memorial Chapel in Crestwood is getting a much needed face lift.

    The 21 stained glass windows that line the chapel are being restored to make them more visible from the outside, Ted Merhoff, secretary of the Floydsburg Cemetery, said.

    “Stained glass has a life time that requires a lot of maintenance,” Merhoff said.

  • It's no secret that Sheila Nobles loves her job.

    Though only 5-foot-1 1/2, Nobles is hard to miss with her large hat and bubbly personality. She is one of Kentucky’s milliners, or hat makers, who are known for their Derby hats.

    Nobles is now in her 12th year of hat making with her business partner Kevin Swansey. Together the two make up CK Nobles Millinery Designs, who tout a decade long run as the official milliners of the Kentucky Derby Museum.

  • When Nikita Khrushchev died, a humorous story circulated in political circles. The Communist party had cast Mr. Khrushchev aside and was uncomfortable about burying his body on Soviet soil. So they called President Richard Nixon, but President Nixon had his own problems at the time and declined. Then the Soviet leaders tried Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel. She was agreeable but added, “I must warn you that this country has the world’s highest resurrection rate.”
