The Tarters own the largest farm and ranch equipment company in North America.  Their company is located in the poorest county of Kentucky and employee over 1400 people.  The company was started in the 40's and was a multi-million dollar operation before I graduated from high school in the 70's.  They are the J.R. Ewing family of the 80's television drama Dallas only the Tarters are good, hard working, honest people who earned their money the right way.  They worked for it.  They worked for eveything they own today. They are the kind of people who made America great....Click their photo to read more...

Nick Simon was the greatest man I have every known to give so much of himself to people he knew and to complete strangers.  No one will ever know just how many people he helped while he served as President and CEO of Publishers Printing Company.  He was a man of distinction that everyone said was his friend.  Without prompting you could find a hundred people who would tell you "Nick Simon and I were friends".  Everyone he met felt like he or she was Nick's friend, including me.  And... Nick counted all of us as friends and remembered our names.  He made us feel important even when we at times felt very small.  His talent for lifting people up and encouraging them was a talent I have not witnessed in many people. My prayers are with his family and I know he is at peace with God in Heaven. Click the photo to read more...

John Rodgers and Al Purnell, Founder, Purnell's Old Folks Sausage

     

Allen Purnell is known all across America as the man who made sausage the "king of food" for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  His name takes backseat to no one.  Even though Colonel Harlem Sanders, the founder of Kentucky Fried Chicken operated Claudia Sanders restaurant just two miles down the road from the Purnell's Sausage Plant, Allen Purnell is the most successful businessman anyone could hope to meet in America.  All those years of listening to his commercials aired during the University of Kentucky basketball games made me a fan of Al Purnell when I was a teenager.  I have admired him all my life.  When I was granted the opportunity to interview him, well... it was a little slice of heaven.  He is exactly what you see in his telivision commercials.  He is funny, interesting, highly intelligent, approachable and he shares kindness like it is chocolate candy.  Click the photo above to read more...

CHICKEN BUZZARD NABS RABBIT 
.
This Chicken Buzzard was spotted by the publsiher of HPN, while he was driving past Scott Jackson's farm in the central part of the county.  "The Buzzard was reltentless on devouring that poor old rabbit," said Jackson. " I watch that Buzzard for at least fifteen minutes.  The rabbit didn't have a chance to defend himself.  The buzzard swept down from the sky and cracked the rabbits neck with one big bite from his hard beak.  It was an awful thing to see.  Nautre is not very kind" said Jackson?
