Flags to Half-Staff for National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

Frankfort, KY - Gov. Matt Bevin has directed that flags at all state office buildings be lowered to half-staff on Friday, Dec. 7, 2018, in observance of National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

This is in memory and honor of the more than 2,400 Americans who died in the surprise attack on the U.S. Fleet's Pearl Harbor base in the early morning hours of Dec. 7, 1941. President Franklin D. Roosevelt declared Dec. 7, 1941 "a date which will live in infamy" and signed the Declaration of War against Japan the following day, Dec. 8, 77 years ago.

All individuals, businesses, organizations, and government agencies are encouraged to join in this tribute.

Although flags statewide are presently at half-staff in honor of former President George H.W. Bush, Friday's flag lowering will also serve to honor those lost in the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Friendship kept Bush coming to Kentucky

Former President George H.W. Bush attended Derby, drove a tank, got a dog.

By Tom Eblen, Lexington Herald-Leader

Former President George H.W. Bush and his wife, Barbara, were no strangers to Kentucky, thanks to their nearly six-decade friendship with William Stamps Farish III and his wife, Sarah, of Versailles.

Bush, whose funeral was Wednesday in Washington, visited Lane's End Farm in Woodford County many times. The Bushes attended several Kentucky Derbies and races at Keeneland with the Farishes. They dedicated three Lexington buildings and headlined several Republican fundraisers and rallies in the state.

The Farishes gave the Bushes their famous White House dog, Millie, and their springer spaniel sired her litter of puppies. That was big news in what the former president would have called a "kinder and gentler" era of presidential politics.

Letter: drive alert, drive carefully no matter when or where

By Joyce Coomer

Years ago, when we purchased a brand new Ford Ranger, several people asked me if I worried about someone damaging it with their vehicle. My answer: I drive as if a bomb might drop in front of me any second.

I still follow the "bomb might drop" philosophy of driving and it has helped me avoid accidents several times.
