  • Gary leads gold rush

    CRESTWOOD  – Alayna Gary had no idea winning a raffle in her elementary classroom would change her life.

    Gary, 12, won two free lessons at the Kentucky Tae Kwon Do and Fitness Academy in a drawing in her classroom three years ago and since walking through the doors for the first time has blossomed into a junior olympics champion.

    “I came in and tried the first class and just really enjoyed it,” Gary said. “At the time I didn’t realize it was going to be such a commitment, but I really enjoy every minute of it now.”

  • Alaskan marathon was worth the...

     According to Google Maps, it’s 4,110 miles if you follow their directions and make the walk from my house in La Grange to the finish line of the Mayor’s Marathon in Anchorage, Alaska. Google also says it would take 53 days and 18 hours to complete that journey.

    My wife, Judy, thought about walking when we planned our trip to Alaska for the marathon – for about 30 seconds.
