  • Ky. Pearl Harbor survivor honored

    By Lauren P. Duncan

    The Paducah Sun

    Livingston County resident Karl Monday has shared the story of Pearl Harbor many times since surviving the attack 73 years ago.

    Monday, 92, recounted it again during a ceremony Friday in Paducah, where U.S. Rep. Ed Whitfield and Gov. Steve Beshear thanked the veteran for his service and presented him with an American flag and three citations.

  • Madison offers many resources for research

    Over the decades and centuries, family lines have traversed from county to county or across state lines. That is just as true of ancestors who moved between Carroll and Trimble counties in Kentucky to (or from) Jefferson and Switzerland counties in Indiana.

    So, if you can trace your relatives back and forth across this portion of the Ohio River, you may be in luck.

  • Sharing the Green
  • Churches can help by sharing your sorrow

    If they are sad, share their sorrow. Romans 12:15

    As an adult, I realize that life is far more complicated than I once thought. The naive little farm boy from Trimble County had the veil ripped off his eyes a long time ago. There is real sorrow in this world. I look around and see so many of my dear friends dealing with things like broken or strained relationships, the death of a loved one, a romantic breakup, or a family separation or divorce... All these cause great sorrow.

  • Tips offered for spring lawn care and flood cleanup

    Over the course of the last few weeks, we have been on a roller coaster of weather: below zero temperatures, inches and inches of snow and rain, and flooding waters.  Earlier this week, we received a reprieve from the roller coaster weather with 50, 60, and even 70 degree temperatures.

    Typical Kentucky weather, right?
