Horses run from national cemetery onto highway; controversy ensues

Motorists on U.S. 27 in Jessamine County faced some tense moments Monday when two horses ran from Camp Nelson National Cemetery and headed south in the northbound lanes of the divided highway. There were no collisions between vehicles and the animals, and no motorists were injured, said Tracy Lucas, commander of the Camp Nelson Honor Guard. That volunteer organization provides a horse-drawn caisson and a cannon salute at the funerals for all active-duty personnel and veterans.
