T.J. Community Mission Foundation Board Members Retire

By Stacey Biggs

The T.J. Community Mission Foundation (TJCMF) Board of Directors recognized two of its founding members and pillars of the community for their service to the Foundation.

Bill Prather and Mike Bryant both served the TJCMF Board from its inception in 2014 until their retirement from the Board earlier this year. Mr. Prather served as Chairperson of the Board of Directors and provided exceptional leadership to the organization through both the fundraising and construction phases of the Shanti Niketan Hospice Home. Mr. Bryant served on several committees during his board tenure and continues his long standing involvement with T.J. Regional Health as a member of the health system's Board of Directors.

Executive Director of the TJCMF, Randy Burns, shared, "A non-profit organization will only be as good as the quality of leadership provided by its board of directors. This Foundation has truly been blessed to have had Bill and Mike lead us to where we are today. Their presence on the Board will be missed but we are grateful for their commitment to remain involved with our mission to build healthier communities in southcentral Kentucky."

Adair County: Thankful for Organ Donation

As the holidays are approaching, communities are looking forward to spending the holidays back in-person with their loved ones. For the families waiting on a life-saving organ transplant, the holidays are bitter-sweet. Over 1,000 Kentuckians are waiting for their transplant, a gift they will not find wrapped under the tree.

In efforts to save and heal lives through organ and tissue donation, the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Trust For Life is focused on public education and growing the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry in partnership with Donate Life Kentucky. This month, Donate Life Kentucky is challenging high school students and community members to a "Duet for Life." This is the first time the annual challenge has taken place on social media, where they will incorporate the ever-popular duet TikTok trend, which allows app users to split their viewing screen and create content alongside a pre-existing video. Winners could receive up to $1,000 in scholarship awards.

"Spreading holiday cheer is easy! Registering as an organ donor is a priceless gift - hope. We challenge Adair County to join in on the festivities and participate in this year's 'Duet For Life,'" said Dennis Loy, Adair County Circuit Court Clerk.

Carol Perkins: Life's Chapters, Two - In Town

Previous Column: Life's Chapters

By Carol Perkins

Chapter Two of my "chapters" edition (see last week for Chapter One) begins with my desire to live in town. I was only half a mile from Edmonton, but I might as well have lived in Summer Shade. Going to town didn't happen every day because my mother couldn't drive then and people, in general, only went to town when necessary. Connie Wilson and Judy Wallace were lucky to live in town, and I envied them. They could watch what went on from their upstairs windows, day, and night.

To my young eyes, Edmonton was as bright and exciting as New York City is today. Around the square were thriving businesses: four or five grocery stores, department stores, dress shops, shoe stores, drugstores, two doctors, two pool rooms, several restaurants, a couple of hardware stores, a jewelry store, gas stations, three car dealerships, and a movie theater. That didn't include insurance offices and our lawyers. Wednesdays and Saturdays, customers had to circle the square to find a place to park. (We had parking meters.)
