COVID-19 Update: there's good news and bad news

From Amy Tomlinson - Lake Cumberland District Health Department

FRIDAY, JULY 12, 2020 - No new deaths to report is the good news for the ten-county area in the last few days. However, there have been COVID-19 cases with connections to three area churches this week resulting in scores of people being quarantined.

Overall, we are trending toward one of our worst weeks since the outbreak began. The next couple of weeks should reveal if things are leveling out.

Respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes are the reason to wear masks when in public.

Droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs.

Prayers requested for Rep. John Bam Carney at setback

From Bro. John Chowning, Saloma Baptist Church

Hereís a Sunday June 14 update from Mark Carney on State Representative Bam Carney. Prayers are needed.


We know so many of you have been lifting Bam up in prayer and we are very thankful for that.

We come to you asking for specific prayers today dealing with bleeding from the fistula. Bam was taken back to Nortonís ICU yesterday from Kindred.

An EGD was done to find the bleeding. It involves a clot around the fistula. The clot is also next to a big blood vessel and there is an ulcer in the area.

They worked to remove some of the clot but were not able to get it all. They had to put a trach back in and have also put him on the vent at 50 percent.

He was given two units of blood last night. Hemoglobin was still low this morning [Sunday, June 14, 2020] so two more units of blood are being given this morning and another EGD planned for 11. We wanted to get this word out now instead of waiting for our usual update so that you all can be praying for this specific need. We believe in the power of prayer so we ask you to be praying and we thank you.

May 31, 1978 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

The article below first appeared in the May 31, 1978, issue of the Daily Statesman. Topics included Jean Moseley's journalism class at Adair County High School, advanced mimeography at LWC, another round of praise for the plan to serve realy butter at the Dillon Dinner house, a seafood review by yours truly, a call for boxes to help move all the books from the Municipal Building to the new library on Greensburg Street, and growing excitement over the Miss Lake Cumberland Beauty Pageant. --Pen

Another Bob Considine in the making?
Somewhere, out there in the halls of Adair County High, there may be another Bob Considine, or a Mike Murrell, or a Sylvia Porter, or an Allan Trout, or a Dr. Harold McKinney, or even a Pete Walker. There just may be another great American journalist there. Likely, the place he or she will be found will be in Betty Jean Moseley's journalism class, which furnishes most of the writers for ACHS' fine high school newspaper, Smoke Signals.

Members of the class include Smoke Signals editor Danny Wilkinson, next year's editor Cindy Alley, advertising manager David Martin, and Pam Bailey, Darrell Coffey, Donna Foster, Pat Hale, Lee Barnes, Sherry Cheatham, David Sneed, Benjie McQuaide, Margaret Shirley, Sharon Brock, Sharon Neat, and Nancy Spires.

Several are going on to journalism majors in college, and one, Mrs. Moseley says, has a full scholarship in journalism.

She's Margaret Shirley, who already has been bylined as a sports writer for the Campbellsville newspaper.

Mrs. Moseley has a fine group. Maybe we are a little selfish at the newspaper plant, but we're happy to see the school system put the effort they are into the field.

I wish we had the course
I wish they'd had a class such as Mrs. Moseley's back in the pioneer days when I was in high school. People have asked me how I got into the business, and I have to admit, it was by accident.

Kentucky Color: waxing nostalgic over half moon

By Billy Joe Fudge
President, Homeplace on Green River


Canadian air has finally and at long last invaded the Great Wooded South in late spring again. Those of us who are "long enough in the tooth" to remember the 50's, 60's and early 70's have been waxing nostalgic for these times of transitional rejuvenation.

Green leaves, seemingly eternal and cloudless bluebird skies, dry air, warm days, cool shade and pleasant nights made even the hard work of spring planting, cultivation, haying, gardening and all of those labors of necessity for the subsistence lifestyles and cultures past, palatable indeed!

Today as a culture we all appreciate weather of this nature because it makes our walk from the house to the car, from the car into our workplace and for a weekend of frolicking much more enjoyable. However, our forefathers who lived without central heat and air conditioning, a computer in their pocket and satellite enhanced weather forecasts, had to rely upon historical observations and read every nuance of the natural world around them in order to plan activities.

Within your love I'm caught: a sonnet remembering Linda Regula

By Robert Stone

The best among us wise words freely share
and we believe we know them very well
until we suddenly become aware
that no more stories will there be to tell.

Though dust return to dust our memories
will phoenixlike forever blaze again
and we behind the flames within the breeze
will know the path that leads us out of pain.

If we have learned the lessons we were taught,
relationships will grow toward compliment:
where each will say, within your love Iím caught
and have been changed for good by time we spent.

Whenever we some other kindness show,
we keep alive the one we would they know.
