    General Manager

    Residents along Boyer Lane in Campbellsburg may, after many years, no longer be trapped by stopped trains.

    The road intersects with a CSX rail line, and at times throughout the years, trains will stop on the tracks, leaving many residents in the twelve homes on the road trapped with no way out.

    During last week's Fiscal Court meeting, Henry County Judge Executive John Logan Brent informed the court that after several meetings with CSX about Boyer Lane, residents would finally get some relief.

    Fonda Powell's eyes speak volumes; more than any words ever could. They are a striking shade of light blue, but are softened from years of grieving. Her eyes have a distinctive type of sadness about them; one that could only be brought on by the loss of a child.

    Powell remembers the night clearly. It was Nov. 20, 1993. Her daughter Angela Oakley - just 20 years old was married and had two young boys - recently bought a car with money she had earned from waiting tables.

    Staff Writer and Photographer

    For the members of the Cambpellsburg United Methodist Church patience over the last year and a half has been a virtue.

    On the afternoon of April 19, 2006, the entire town shook from a blast that leveled the church, reducing it to nothing but shattered stained glass windows and a pile of rubble. An underground gas line was inadvertently cut by utility workers using a back hoe. Fumes leaked into the sewer line which lead to the church and were then ignited by an unknown source creating the powerful explosion. No one was injured in the blast.

    I have been a good boy this year and I hope you come to visit me. I would like for you to bring me Capt. Jack Sparrow's big Black Pearl ship, and some new Pirates of the Caribbean action figures. I would also like to have the "Shrek the Third", "Pirates of the Caribbean - At World's End", and "Under Dog" DVDs. Please bring Kelsey and Bubby some presents, too. I will leave some cookies and milk for you, and some food for your reindeer.

    Love,
