Filmmaker Seeking Help for Project Grant

Nov 27, 2011

Winchester director Jason Epperson is seeking community support for his latest project. A friendship with Carrollton bus crash survivor Harold Dennis led to Epperson’s involvement in a documentary about what remains the worst drunk driving accident in United States history. Twenty-seven Hardin County residents died in a fatal church bus wreck on I-71 in 1988.With more than a month remaining in 2011, Lexington is having the eighth-wettest year on record (tied with 1950), with 58.67 inches of precipitation as of Friday. Central Kentucky probably can expect another inch or two of rain as storms move through the area between late Saturday and Tuesday, meteorologist Chris Bailey said. After that, temperatures will drop, and precipitation for the rest of the year is likely to come in the form of snow or a wintry mix, which holds less moisture than rain, Bailey said.
