  • Former MW martial arts instructor honored with lifetime achievement
     BARDSTOWN -- The story began when three veterans, after serving in Korea, opened the first Tae Kwon Do school in the Kentuckiana area in Jeffersonville.  Dennis Wiley had been a sickly, asthmatic kid whose doctor had recommended him taking martial arts because of the benefits the breathing exercises would provide.

  • Be ready when fishing opportunities arise
     FRANKFORT – Planning a fishing trip more than a couple days ahead of time can be a gamble in late winter when the weather is a mixed bag and the favorable conditions here today may be gone tomorrow. With some advance preparation, you can be ready to grab what you need and go when that friend calls at daybreak or the impulse strikes and the schedule allows for a last-minute trip. Performing regular maintenance on your reels can prevent catastrophic problems or costly repairs down the road.
