    As the crowd reminisced, they journeyed back and forth through time; and yesterday met today in a whirlwind of family names and places.

  • Good morning from the Branch. It’s pleasantly cool at the moment  and the sun is shining. Summer has finally arrived.
    We had a horrendous storm on both Friday and Saturday nights, thunder and lightning like I have never seen before.
    Wanda said  it damaged several things at Pat New’s and “got” Barbara’s TV.
    The storm on Saturday night on the Branch didn’t destroy anything but played havoc with all our “programmed appliances.”

  • Stephanie Nicole Powers, daughter of Dawn and Fred Powers, Jr. of Versailles, and Mark Arron Northern, son of Ernie Northern and Kathy and Gary Northern, all of Richmond were united in marriage Saturday, April 26, 2014, at The Ashley Inn, Bryantsville, with the Rev. Todd Probus of Versailles officiating the ceremony.  
    The matron of honor was Jean Allen Ellington, aunt of the bride, of Owenton. Bridesmaids were Francis Rice Hall of Lexington, and Amy Kinsler of Crestview Hills, friends of the bride.

  • I told a story at church the other day about the weightlifter who had found a sure fire way to make some extra money. He would take a lemon in his big powerful hand and squeeze all the juice out of it. Then he’d make bets that no one would be able to squeeze out even one more drop.
