  • During our single-digit weather a few weeks ago, my mom commented on how it was good because it would kill some of our least-favorite garden pests.

    “At least the cold temperatures will kill some of the insects,” she said.

    I didn’t have the heart to tell her that most insects are well-equipped to withstand a deep freeze.

  • For those who want to lose the excess weight they piled on during the holidays, Trim Down, Bardstown! starts tomorrow. This year the weight-loss drive will be at the new Flaget Immediate Care Clinic — off KY 245, across from Buzick Lumber. The hours for weigh-ins are 11 a.m.-6 p.m. There is no charge for the program.

    If you use Trim Down as an incentive to eat better and exercise more, you’ll be doing more than paring off the pounds. You’ll also be reducing your risk of developing a number of serious medical conditions.

  • Some memos will be marked [Unpreviewed]. This means that I have not seen the film. Any information about the film content is taken from press releases, Web sites and other sources. The “Family Rating” is mainly taken from the Web site filmratings.com.

  • It’s been 18 years since Sylvester Stallone portrayed the legendary John Rambo. We don’t know how many years have passed in the life of Rambo since the last film. However, we get the distinct impression from this latest incarnation that John has spent those years in Southeast Asia, probably as a messenger of good will or perhaps as a mercenary.

The information below is a compiled list of daily booking logs from the jail. The bookings state the person(s) arrested and the charge(s) against them. This information is public record.
