  • Take care: Whooping cough has struck in Kentucky

    You may have heard about the cases of whooping cough in Lexington.

  • Outbreak of dangerous avian flu found in Tenn.

    These are the types of articles I hate writing because the end point is never pleasant.
    The H7 strain of high pathogenic avian influenza was found in a flock of 73,500 chickens in Tennessee along the Alabama border.
    Many might think, “Well, that is pretty far from Kentucky, so why should I worry?”

  • Church histories, futures source of inspiration

    Always one to share ideas freely, more than a year ago Ron Wright, Eminence native and Washington Lodge Odd Fellows member, suggested I could always write articles on local churches for Black History Month.
