  • Muffin top: a love story

    I often reference my weight struggles in this column, and then sometimes, when I meet someone, they will say, “You are not fat. I don’t know why you wrote that.”

    I accept their words with a smile, but in my mind I am insisting, “three weeks ago when I wrote it I weighed at least 12 more pounds than I do now! You should see me naked. It’s hideous.”

  • Accused bank robber’s cases not even started in several counties

    The case of a La Grange man charged with robbing the Farmer’s Bank of Milton on Highway 53 doesn’t appear to be heading toward a speedy resolution.

    William Gary Grubbs, Jr., 36, was indicted on two counts of robbery in the first degree, related to alleged robberies on April 23 and June 1.

    But Grubbs is facing other robbery charges in four other counties and told Oldham Circuit Court Judge Karen Conrad that he hasn’t even been arraigned or made an appearance in two of the total five counties he’s charged in.
