  • Community lost a good man in Norm

    I only met Norman Wood once, nearly 40 years after he created and launched the pre-eminent local grocery store. But it only took that one encounter to understand the most important parts of his life.

    He loved his wife Sally — the Pleasureville girl that he first met at the lunch counter in Cincinnati. Her mother Peggy Jones, who also worked at the lunch counter, evidently suspected that Sally would like the up-and-coming A&P manager who had a good job and income with a large corporation.

  • Hope I live long enough to be called feisty

    I recently had a delightful visit with Mrs. Aline Stivers, a resident of Twin Oaks Assisted Living. Aline welcomed me into her apartment, which was neat as a pin by the way, and we talked for about an hour on a subject Mrs. Stivers found a little uncomfortable – herself!

    Aline will turn 100 years old this Friday, and with 365,000 days under her belt, she has lived a lifetime and then some. So settling on which details of her life to share with me might have proved daunting. 

  • A return to scripture

    There was once a king named Josiah. Josiah ascended to the throne at an incredibly young age and was grandson to two of the most wicked kings to ever rule over God’s people. Nonetheless, the Lord had great plans for Josiah’s life. 

  • Seeking volunteers

    On Wednesday, Oct. 12, at 6 p.m., the New Castle Patriotic Festival will meet at New Castle City Hall to begin planning next year’s festival.

  • Improvements in education

    Not long after the start of each school year, Kentucky begins getting report cards on the overall progress our students are making.  These annual updates give the public the chance to learn if we are still heading in the right direction academically.

  • Club with rich history of service dissolves

    Our Campbellsburg Woman’s Club was founded in 1906 and federated by the Kentucky Women’s Club in 1908. The club was founded by Mrs. J.T Jefferies, and its first president was Mrs. Noble Humston. 

    The objective of this organization was friendship, culture, social services and the promotion of better conditions in the community.

    One of the club’s first projects was the establishment of a town library in 1908. Though it had a happy beginning, the project has come to a sad end.
