Gabby Pedroza begins Glory Hands For Venezuela to help others

In effort to help babies and children survive in her home country, LWC student Gabby Pedroza is starting a foundation, Glory Hands For Venezuela (Manos Gloriosas para Venezuela), and asking questions of her American family and friends about how to raise funds and how they might be able to get help directly to those in dire need.

By Linda Waggener

Jeanne and Charles Marshburn of Columbia are host parents to six Lindsey Wilson college international students. A friend of one of their students, their kids, as Jeanne calls them, has a goal to somehow help kids in her Venezuelan home:

"This young lady at Lindsey Wilson is truly an inspiration. She is a brilliant girl. Came to LWC from Venezuela at the age of 16 (I think) and is now on her 3rd year here (I think). Over the summer she worked with starving babies & children in Venezuela and then came back here to school and has organized raffles and a blood drive to help her sick and hungry country. The pictures of her holding starving, dying babies is heart breaking. I sincerely believe this "child" will find ways to help thousands and am so proud to know her." -- Jeanne Marshburn

Billy Joe Fudge: Why are there two U.S. 31's between L & N?

To a traveler who loves both roads, it is strange

By Billy Joe Fudge

A question.

I have a question and no I don't have the answer.

Why are there two Highway 31's from Nashville to Louisville and what is the history of their strange existence? Or at least, I think it is strange. Reason being, I don't know of any other similar scenario.

I love both roads and a day trip on each is a thrill which will take you back to a time and place for which you've been longing.
