  • Pulmonary fibrosis.

    The diagnosis three years ago was tantamount to a death sentence for Bonnie Kidwell of Eminence.
    For some time, Kidwell, now 57, had had problems breathing. When the situation worsened, she was treated for pneumonia. When that treatment failed to work, she was hospitalized. The doctors still believed she was fighting pneumonia, but after a week with no improvement, the tests began.

  • It’s unusual to see an owl in the daytime, so Bobby Heitzman was surprised one early fall morning to see a great horned owl sitting on the fence in his back yard on Second Street in Campbellsburg.

    So he urged his wife, Kathy, to get her cell phone and take photos of the bird from the kitchen window, where he was standing.

    After Kathy took a few shots, Bobby opened the back door. The bird didn’t move, so he suggested she try to take some through the open doorway. When the bird still didn’t move, Kathy continued to move toward the fence.

    But if you can’t here is the jist of the video.

  • Two weeks ago, I put the question To Coupon or Not to Coupon to you. Hopefully, that got your attention. This week, I’m going to take that further.

  • Monday night, they gathered at a leisurely pace at Harry Hill Park; men and women of various ages and various athletic abilities.

    Once the teams were assembled, they took the small baseball field, in turns, to boot a soft-ish rubber ball as hard as they could.

    With rules similar to adult co-ed softball, two teams kicked it out for five innings before Odds & Ends was declared the winner with 12 runs to Campbellsburg Baptist Church’s zero.

    The teams were gatherd as part of a small, but enthusiastic group of adult kickball players.
