Filly, Bold and Bossy, escapes racetrack, runs onto Kentucky highway

A 2-year-old filly got loose before a race at a Kentucky track and ran onto a highway alongside cars before being apprehended Saturday.

The filly named Bold and Bossy got loose on her way to the starting gate at Ellis Park. Jockey Miguel Mena was thrown off.

She then ran off the track and over a levee heading to U.S. 41. Bold and Bossy ran briefly onto Interstate 69 and Veterans Memorial Parkway, with a posse of trainers chasing her in their vehicles. Police and the sheriff's department also showed up.

"Thank god for all the people who jumped in to go find her because she left town," her owner-trainer, Michael Ann Ewing, said from Lexington.

Ewing said Bold and Bossy lost two shoes, and a hind hoof knocked some flesh off the heel of a front foot during her escapade, but she wasn't seriously injured. The filly was cramping from dehydration when she was finally corralled by a man and his wife, Ewing added.

Bold and Bossy was wearing her saddle and blinkers to restrict her vision as she galloped down the highway close to vehicles in other lanes. The blinkers probably made it harder to stop her, said Jack Hancock, a trainer who gave chase.

"She couldn't see anything beside her, so that made it a little worse trying to catch her," he said. "I've been here all my life and I've never seen one to do a run like this, not that far and not that much highway."

Horses that get loose on a racetrack often run back to the familiar setting of their barn, but Bold and Bossy had shipped in from Lexington to run in a race for the first time.

"She didn't know where to go home," Hancock said.

Not trying to bait the racetrack haters. This can happen in any equine sport.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene vows to introduce articles of impeachment

By: Scripps NationalPosted at 8:21 PM, Aug 19, 2021 and last updated 10:55 PM, Aug 19, 2021

Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene said she will introduce articles of impeachment against President Joe Biden Friday.

"I believe in firing people when they're corrupt and they do a bad job," the Georgia Republican said during a speaking tour in Iowa.

President Biden has faced increasing scrutiny for the chaotic U.S. withdrawal in Afghanistan.

However, the articles of impeachment will likely be dead on arrival. Democrats control the U.S. House of Representatives. There are no signs any Democrat would entertain articles of impeachment against Biden.

Rep. Taylor Greene is a controversial figure in Washington. She was removed from her committee assignments after videos surfaced that appeared to show her embracing far-right conspiracy theories.

Federal judge rules Gov. Andy Beshear violated law with executive mask mandate

Source: Lexington 18 News

(LEX 18) — A federal judge issued a temporary restraining order against Governor Andy Beshear's executive order mask mandate for schools on Thursday. However, the governor's office says the ruling only applies to schools within the Catholic Diocese of Covington.

In Jason Oswald, et al. v. Beshear, the plaintiffs challenged the legality of the Executive order issued by Beshear on August 10 requiring all teachers, staff, students, and visitors in Kentucky schools to wear face masks indoors regardless of vaccination status. In judge William Bertelsman's analysis, he states the Governor violates KRS39A.090 (3), which is the product of House Bill 1, Senate Bill 1, Senate Bill 2, and House Joint Resolution 77, all passed by the Kentucky General Assembly in its 2021 session.

"The Executive Branch cannot simply ignore laws passed by the duly-elected representatives of the citizens of the Commonwealth of Kentucky. Therein lies tyranny. If the citizens dislike the laws passed, the remedy lies with them, at the polls."

Crystal Staley, the Director of Communications in Governor Beshear's Office released the following statement:
"The federal court’s ruling could place thousands of Kentucky children at risk and undoubtedly expose them to the most dangerous version of COVID-19 we have ever seen.

Gov. Beshear's action in the first Covid go round kept us from getting hit SO much worse. Rethuglicans took away those powers, and are trying to kill us all this time.

One of these things is not like the other.......

This is our bottle baby, Pepper. Mom had twins, but rejected this little girl, and we nearly lost her. Our lives currently revolve around bottle feeding her 5 times a day, but she is such a little joy.

We had 3 sets of Nigerian Dwarf kids born in one week!

Your Canada Drug Store?

Does anyone have experience with this company?


My husband needs to get a monthly prescription for the Anoro Ellipta inhaler filled every month. Price in the U.S.--around $400. From this site ("A prescription referral service), can get it filed in the UK for $111, with free shipping. We figure its safer than the one in Turkey.

This is the best price I've found. Any other sites recommended?


Gov. Beshear Donates Nearly $16K from Inaugural Fund to Feeding Kentucky

Governor also signs proclamation declaring today Hunger Free Day in Kentucky

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 28, 2021) – Today, Gov. Andy Beshear signed a proclamation declaring Jan. 28, 2021, as Hunger Free Day in Kentucky and made a surprise donation to the group Feeding Kentucky of nearly $16,000 left over from the Beshear-Coleman inaugural fund.
During a virtual event Thursday morning, the Governor praised the advocates and workers on the front line helping to make sure Kentucky families stay fed, work made tougher by the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In the best of times, your work is daunting. During COVID, it has been nothing short of heroic,” Gov. Beshear said. “The entire commonwealth owes you all a debt of gratitude but also – crucially – more than just words of thanks. Your efforts deserve our full support.”
Gov. Beshear made a surprise announcement during Thursday’s event with hunger organizations and advocates that he was donating $15,673 leftover from the Beshear-Coleman inaugural fund to Feeding Kentucky, an organization that helps feed Kentuckians in need. Remaining inaugural funds can only be donated to 501(c)(3) charitable organizations.

Add a verse to my song!

(Sung to the tune of, "Ding Dong, The Wicked Witch is Dead)

Ding-dong, the trump is gone! Which old trump? The dumpity trump.
Ding-dong the wicked trump is gone
Wake up, you walking dead, fold your flags, Biden is Prez.
Wake up, the wicked trump is gone!
He’s gone where the impeached go, down to Mar-a-Lago
We take back Air Force 1, stick a fork in him, he's done,
Ding-dong! The wicked trump is gone!
