  • Are you afraid of ghosts?

    La Grange may be dead at night — but not in the way you think. There’s plenty of activity, according to Spirits of La Grange Ghost Tour guides.

    Footsteps overhead, knocking on walls, even the occasional touch — attendees and guides report a range of unexplained activities during tours.

    It’s the 10th year for the tour, which includes about eight different stops, said Barbara Manley Edds, who helped launch them.

  • Fugitive picked up in Louisville 6 months later

  • Bourbon bigwig scoops ice cream warehouse for a new distillery

    The locally-produced, artisan-quality trend is taking hold in another industry — and one Pewee Valley man hopes to be ahead of the curve.

    First it was cheese, wine, bread and beer — all products seeing a rise in “craft” production focused on small batches and special ingredients.

    Now, it’s spirits. Bourbon, vodka and other spirits are being produced by micro-distillers across the country.

  • Unexpected art: Sweet cheeks are Goshen mom’s canvas

    People are surprised to hear what one Goshen woman does for a living — and quite frankly, she’s just as surprised to say it.

    Amy Parks is a professional face painter. 

    But she’s not a clown, or a magician, or a balloon artist. Just a face painter.

    “I’m still adjusting my own idea of what a face painter is,” she said.

  • NOHS’s Katie Posto top local finisher at girls' golf regional.

    Though the weather outside was beautiful Monday afternoon at Long Run golf course, play on it wasn’t quite as nice as several area teams struggled to find their footing during the regional girls’ golf tournament.

    Though several came close, including North Oldham’s Katie Posto and Oldham County’s Jacque McMillen, no Oldham County golfer managed to qualify for the state tournament in 2012.
