2021 was groundbreaking year for organ donation in KY

For more information about organ, tissue and cornea donation or to register as a donor, please visit www.donatelifeky.org.

From Dennis Loy, Adair Circuit Clerk

Even in a global pandemic, kindness and generosity persists. Kentucky has once again broken records for saving and healing lives with over 1,000 heroic organ, tissue and cornea donors in 2021.

"During this time of significant change, we celebrate the work of our dedicated staff, partners, and the incredible families touched by this Donate Life mission. When the Circuit Clerks began asking Kentuckians about organ donation 30 years ago, it was not a common topic. Today, the majority of Kentuckians are registered donors. We embrace this mission and conversation as one of hope, kindness, and love. As a result, more lives are saved by transplantation than ever before," shares Dennis Loy, Adair Circuit Clerk.

In 2021, 189 organ donors resulted in 536 organs being transplanted, which translates to over 500 lives saved, according to Kentucky Organ Donor Affiliates (KODA). This marks another year of consecutive increase in organ donation and transplantation in Kentucky. Over the past four years, there has been a 75% increase in the number of organ donors in our donation service area.

Despite the increase, there are still not enough organs available for transplant.

HAM Radio: Amateur Radio used daily locally

Part I of HAM Radio in our area appeared earlier at this link. This is part two of three parts to update readers on this important part of local emergency communications.

By Mike Keltner, Director,
Adair Co. Emergency Management


As the Adair County Emergency Management Director, I am fortunate to be involved with and be a part of the Central Kentucky Amateur Radio Club (CKARC). An interest in amateur radio was sparked when I became Director in 2015.

As I was reading the County Emergency Operations Plan I noticed amateur radio or HAM radio being mentioned over 30 times in the 300 plus page document. If it was this important I felt I should gain knowledge.
