RABBIT HASH, KY (AP) - The tiny town of Rabbit Hash in northern Kentucky has only one real resident, but every week it welcomes visitors for various get-togethers, and the real attraction - the Rabbit Hash General Store.

Callie Clare sometimes works at the store and says shoppers want to know the town's history. That made her decide to write "Potions & Notions: The Legacy of Rabbit Hash, Kentucky," published recently by the Rabbit Hash Historical Society.

The book chronicles the town's history, from settlement in 1813 to its modern fame for having a mayor who is a red and white border collie named Lucy Lou.

General store manager Terrie Marksberry agrees the book will fill a need for her customers, who always want to know more about Rabbit Hash.
