State crews ready to respond to anticipated snowy roads

By Naitore Djigbenou

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) snowfighters are ready for action as forecasts call for periods of light snow to fall Thursday in western Kentucky and sweep north and northeast tonight into Friday morning. Cold temperatures and moisture on roadways, particularly in elevated areas, can create the potential for slick conditions and motorists are advised to drive with caution during their morning commute. Three-quarters of the Cabinet's district highway offices have crews reporting in at midnight through the early morning hours.

"We're thankful for the nearly 2,000 state employees who serve on the frontlines throughout the winter season to keep Kentuckians connected and safe on the roads," said Gov. Andy Beshear. "We want everyone to make it to their destinations safely. If you see snowfighters treating or plowing roads, please give them plenty of room to work and remember to reduce your driving speed during inclement weather conditions."

Letter: Newspaper announcements about birth of babies

Vonnie Kolbenschlag writes:
At some date birth announcements changed from these examples where a mother's personal name was never mentioned and the mother was 'Mrs. (husband's name).' Often announcements just said something like - a baby was born to the wife of "John Doe"... I'm glad that practice has changed. --Vonnie

LRC: Resolution to make DST permanent moves to Senate

By Rebecca Hanchett, LRC

Frankfort, KY - States that want to spring forward and never turn their clocks back just got some help from the Kentucky House.

By a vote of 92-2, the state House today passed a resolution urging Congress to allow Kentucky and other states to permanently adopt daylight saving time, or DST. House Concurrent Resolution 53, which also requires the state Senate's approval for final passage, now goes to that chamber for consideration.

Rep. Brandon Reed, R-Hodgenville--who along with Rep. Bart Rowland, R-Tompkinsville, is a primary sponsor of HCR 53--said "significant interest" in the legislation has been shown by constituents "who want more daylight hours in the evening and, most importantly, not have to change clocks throughout the year."

Carol Perkins: Staying in my lane

Previous Column: Socializing in the waiting room

By Carol Perkins

Buzz words and phrases catch on quickly and fade almost as fast. For several years, the catchphrase, "We need to get on the same page," wore me out. "Are we on the same page?" someone might ask. A new one has surged that is much more meaningful. I first heard it from my son when he joked (sort of), "Mama, you need to stay in your lane." This was a result of unsolicited advice, I'm sure.

A few nights ago, when I was staring at the ceiling, I thought about that phrase and its merit. Good advice is buried in those words, but for a mother, a grandmother, and even a meaningful aunt, crossing into another lane is inevitable. When we see a looming disaster, we want to prevent it even if we end up minding someone else's business who didn't want their business minded!

Dr. Bolin's unusual record

By JIM

A brief front page article in the February 13, 1940 edition of the News spoke of Dr. B.J. Bolin's recent "unusual record."

In the eight-day span of Tuesday, February 6 through Tuesday, February 13, that good man of medicine delivered no fewer than three sets of twins, to-wit:
  • A boy and girl born February 6 to Mr. and Mrs. Willard Reliford, of the Milltown section;

  • A boy and girl born February 8 to Mr. and Mrs. Edward Taylor, of the Basil community; and

  • Twin girls born to Mr. and Mrs. Avery Curry, of near Columbia.
