Local business, B & K Live, helping flood victims

By Vicky Pike

Thinking about ways to help victims of the flooding in eastern Kentucky, partners of a local business offered a way to help. Last night B&K Live Resale held an online auction where bidders were given the option to donate items purchased and have it delivered by someone everyone knows.

Sandy Ford, an Adair County resident, who has family in Eastern Kentucky affected by the flood, was the inspiration leading for this event and will deliver the gifts. Anything Sandy's family can't use will be donated to others in need around them. Items donated included diapers, wipes, and air mattresses, to mention a few.

Tommy Druen: Life lessons from Little League

Previous Column: My wife is a genius

By Tommy Druen

Every once in a while I'll have a touch of insomnia. When that happens, and I'm the only one awake in the house, I usually will watch an old movie that I've seen countless times. Duck Soup, The Dirty Dozen and Cool Hand Luke are always in the rotation. The other night I had Hondo playing, easily one of the best westerns ever made.

I was about ten minutes in when my 12 year-old son Asher made his way downstairs. Admittedly, I was frustrated that he was up way past his bedtime, but it is summer and rules do get a bit lax. Of course he asked what I was watching and then he saw the character Hondo Lane and said, "Hey, isn't that John Wayne?" The kid had never had any interest in westerns until a couple weeks prior when we visited the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City.

Despite it being after midnight, when he asked if he could watch it with me, I agreed.

Flood takes 25 lives, search and rescue continues

The death Toll from Eastern Kentucky Floods rises as search and rescue efforts continue this weekend. Gov. Beshear updates lives lost, those rescued, first responders, resources and how to help. About 100 travel trailers that were purchased for tornado victims in western Kentucky, and which have been decommissioned and cleaned or were never deployed, are being delivered to eastern Kentucky by contract haulers.

"We continue to pray for the families who have suffered unfathomable loss," the Governor said. "We also pray for the first responders. This mission has been especially challenging, and what they are experiencing firsthand is tremendously stressful and difficult. We thank all those involved for their tireless efforts."
