  • 022413 Citizens 09 Jimmy Eastham.jpg Somerset councilors respond to TV report on sale of gas
    City councilors fired back at a Lexington-based news station that last week raised several questions about the entity’s decision to sell gasoline to the public.
    “I ... was kind of hurt the way they made us look on TV,” said Councilor Mike New during Monday’s city council meeting. “We’re not here to put anybody out of business. It would tickle me if we don’t sell the first gallon but we are tired of having the highest gas ... We moved on it and I thank each of you guys for doing it.”

  • MMF Crows 2 REVISED by KS.jpg Counting Crows soar over MMF
    Last August, the Master Musicians Festival board made the fateful decision to pursue a big-name headlining act this year. It’s fitting then that August and everything after led to the alt-rock icons Counting Crows (yes, they of the album “August and Everything After”) appearing on the MMF stage.
    And it paid off. This year’s festival — held this past weekend at Somerset Community College — more or less equaled the crowd that came in 2013 to hear country legend Willie Nelson.
    Tiffany Bourne, president of the MMF board, said about 6,000 individuals came through the gates over the course of the two-day outdoor concert.
