  • I-75 NB and SB lane closures

    On March 6, road crews will be setting up right lane closures  along several sections of interstate that are riddled with potholes. 

    Barrels will be placed to close the right lane off to traffic along areas in between the Crittenden Exit 166 and Williamstown-Owenton Exit 154, both northbound and southbound.  These lanes will be closed until pavement repairs can be made.  All the interchanges will remain open.  Motorists should be aware of lane closures and  drive with caution.
     

  • Prepped, ready for Lent

    These past few weeks I have been diligently preparing for Lent.
    How, you ask?
    Well, two weeks ago I found a pair of stone-colored flats online at 30 percent off and bought them. And today I bought a pair of white pants that were on sale (plus I used a $10 off coupon).
    Even though it’s only early March and I have several or five pairs of white pants in my closet, they are all Capri-length and these are ankle-length, which is more suited to this time of year, or so I am telling myself.
