    As a kickoff to the 2009 Komen Louisville Race for the Cure and October – Breast Cancer Awareness Month, Buckhead Mountain Grill and Rocky’s Sub Pub are honored to host the Breast Cancer Survivor Dinner on the waterfront in Jeffersonville. The dinner will be held on Tuesday, October 6.
    Buckhead’s and Rocky’s for the past 10 years have worked with the Kentucky Cancer Program (KCP), part of the James Graham Brown Cancer Center, in putting on this wonderful dinner for over 800 local Breast Cancer Survivors. The dinner is free to all breast cancer survivors in the Louisville Metro/Southern Indiana area.
    “We are very excited because it is our 10th year hosting this dinner for so many amazing women of the community,” Kelly Leonardo, Director of Marketing with Buckhead Management said. “This dinner is a celebration of life and of survival, but it is also a chance for us to celebrate the lives of those who lost their battle with Breast Cancer.”  
    Buckhead’s and Rocky’s will donate the services of the restaurants' food, tent and staff.  Each of their employees looks forward to volunteering their time for such a great cause. This year’s dinner will have a country theme and will be MC’ed by Radio Personality Mel Fisher from WAMZ and entertainment will be from an up and coming Country musician, Candy Coburn, who has a hit song dedicated to Breast Cancer Awareness entitled “Pink Warrior”.
    "This is such a wonderful opportunity for the breast cancer survivors to come together for this event that Buckhead's and Rocky’s so graciously hosts,” Pam Jennings of the Kentucky Cancer Program said.  “For some women, they say this is as exciting to them as Christmas!   They look forward to it each year and love to feel special by this event."

    North Harrison senior cross country runner Tyler Byrne remained undefeated as an individual over the course of the past week, and won the prestigious Bedford-North Lawrence Invitational as an individual in the process.
    The winner in the team standings in the boys’ varsity race was semi state contender Terre Haute North, who had a meager 53 points. North Harrison was in 2nd place with 85 points.
    “We were pretty happy,” said North Harrison boys’ cross country coach Jerry Love. “We’re close enough to them (Terre Haute North) to where we could beat them” later in the semi state.
    To do that, the times will have to lower between the no. 1 runner on the team, Byrne, ad the rest of the top four runners.
    Saturday at the Bedford-North Lawrence Invitational, Byrne won with a time of 15:51. If that seems a bit slower than the previous week at a meet in Louisville’s E. P. “Tom” Sawyer State Park, it is. The course was wet and sloppy, after several days of rain made it so.

Chiming cell phone in closet narrows circle of culprits PDF Print E-mail

    A ring from an unfamiliar cellphone found in a closet of a burgled home allowed law enforcement officers to narrow the list of suspects in the crime to one.
    Detective Rick Barrett of the Scott County Sheriff's Department related in a probable cause affidavit filed in the case against Heather Thompson, 23, Lexington, that the victim of the burglary on September 17 discovered the strange cell phone in her closet.
    The woman said she had returned to her home on that date and noticed that a window screen had been cut and blinds in a rear bedroom's window were ajar. When she entered the home, she heard the cell phone ringing. She located it and answered to hear a man's voice. Then, she told the detective, Thompson got on the phone and identified the phone as hers. Thompson, the victim stated, told her that she “...must have left it there this morning.”
    Thompson, advised the homeowner, had come to the home that morning, but she did not come in. Thompson was described as a neighbor.
    When Det. Barrett arrived, Thompson was at the house with the owner. She provided information about why she had come to the woman's house. Thompson said a couple who had assisted her with her car in the woman's driveway that morning tried to sell her a gun a short time later.
