  • To Campbellsburg, with love

    Staff writer/photographer

    The “A & J” in the new and evolving A&J Family Restaurant in Campbellsburg easily could be carved inside a heart on the bark of a tall shade tree.

    The restaurant’s unassuming name comes with a side dish of romance.

    When asked what had lured him to the area some 11 years ago, owner Arne Fenstad  answered in his lilting Norwegian accent. “I’ll give you one guess,” he said.

    The answer was love and marriage.

    Staff writer/photographer

    While the sounds of the old equipment rumbled around him, Landert’s hands moved steadily, sure of their course — already marked out in pencil. On a table nearby, some of Landert’s finished works were on display, ranging from completed ribbons to angels, birds and more.
