Thank you for the Rhubarb!

While I was out for a walk yesterday, some dear friend/family dropped off a batch of fresh-from-the-garden Rhubarb! Hope I get a call or note and have a chance to say "Thank You" in person to the mystery gifter!

Back in the day, my Grandmother Alice Bell Royce Marcum would put on her floppy sun hat and lead us out to the patch where big dark green leaves sprouted from long stems, pulling them toward the ground.

With her butcher knife, she'd harvest the pretty green and pink stalks and guide us back into her kitchen. Before I knew it, she turned the "pie plant" stalks into a sweet, tangy, juicy filling surrounded by buttery cobbler crust - a bit of heaven.

Thank you, it made my day,
Linda Waggener

LWC Baseball to close out MSC Opening Round games Saturday

By Christopher Coombs

The Lindsey Wilson baseball team battled for the Mid-South Conference Opening Round series sweep at Egnew Park but the Shawnee State (Ky.) homerun ball proved to be too much for the Blue Raiders to overcome. The two-game day featured 50 hits and 43 runs scored between the two squads.

Lindsey Wilson took the first game by a final score of 8-7 but the Bears bounced back with a 17-11 win in game two. The Bears managed five home runs in both nine-inning contests as the Blue Raiders managed three throughout the day.

Lindsey Wilson and Shawnee State return to action Saturday at Egnew Park. The first pitch is slated for 5:30pmCT with a trip to the MSC Tournament final site in Bowling Green, KY on the line.

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

This week is a mixed bag of results: we added fewer new cases but have more active cases and hospitalized cases compared to last week. We added 134 new cases this week compared to 143 new cases last week for the same time period. We had 2 deaths occur during this past week. We have 133 active cases today compared to 130 last Friday. We have 16 hospitalized COVID-19 cases today compared to 10 last Friday. Our 7-day-average incidence rate of new cases per 100,000 is at 9.143 today compared to 9.757 last Friday.

Our 7-day average incidence chart is now showing 1 county in the "green-on-track" range, Clinton; 4 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Cumberland, Green, McCreary, and Wayne; and 5 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Adair, Casey, Pulaski, Russell, and Taylor. We are thankful to not have any "red-critical" counties now. Keep in mind, some of our 7-day-incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data.

Statewide Testing Positivity Rate: 3.22%.
