    Easter Sunday 2009 had a happy ending for an 87-year-old Northern Kentucky man suffering from dementia thanks to the actions of Eminence couple Jon and Tracey Park and Officer Rodney Hawkins of the Eminence Police Department.

    But, it could have ended badly for Don W. Taylor and his family.

    He was reported missing when he didn’t return to his Florence home after attending Easter morning church services. He evidently lost his way, and ended up at Dairy Queen in Eminence several hours later.

    Former pilot and ex-Marine Don Seligman’s hobby takes up a lot of room.

    His Campbellsburg garage is literally packed to the rafters with built-to-scale military airplanes.

    On a clear, mild Monday morning, the U-Pick crowd descended upon Blueberry Hill Farm by 9. It was their first opportunity to get a taste of this year’s blueberry crop.

    And just like that, it was over. With a single fall, history was altered and the final chapter was written to one of the best Henry County High School athletes.

The one race she wanted so badly to win, she did not even get the chance to finish.
