The New Year is a time in which people feel that they can start fresh with their lives. They try and put the events and the bad habits of the previous year behind them, setting new goals to improve their life in the year ahead.
When the Oldham County Historical Society’s Peyton Samuel Head Family Museum reopens on Saturday, Jan. 7, one of the exhibits will have special meaning to the inmates of the Luther Luckett Correctional Complex.
