Dolly Parton's Imagination Library now available

From Crystal Staley/Libby Suttles

Frankfort, KY - In early June, 2024, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor and First Lady celebrated the statewide expansion of the Dolly Parton Imagination Library. For the first time, every preschool child in Kentucky can have the gift of reading delivered to their home, building a love of books that can last a lifetime.

Dolly Parton's Imagination Library (DPIL) mails a free, age-appropriate book to children each month from birth to age 5 and has been shown to have a significant positive impact on kindergarten readiness. The program partners with local 501(c)(3) or governmental organizations to register children in their area, and with the addition of the Kenton County Public Library in June, every community in the commonwealth is now served by a local partner.

To sign up your child, visit imaginationlibrary.com/kentucky.

Tommy Druen: Being a builder

Previous Column: Quest for authenticity

By Tommy Druen

In 2013, I had the honor to be selected for Leadership Kentucky, a program that brings together Kentuckians from various regions and diverse backgrounds to learn more about our beloved Commonwealth and develop leadership skills that will hopefully be applied in our careers and communities.

While I cannot say enough positive things about the programming of Leadership Kentucky, some of what I remember most vividly were the casual conversations and comments among the group.

One such came from Carolyn Dennis, a fellow classmate and Scott County resident. That summer, I was trying to drop a few pounds and Carolyn, a health consultant, introduced me to KIND bars. While they are commonplace now, these snack bars were just making their presence felt in Kentucky. I won't say they quite measure up to my preferred Zero or Heath bars, but they aren't too bad for what they are.

Later that night, I looked up some information on the company. Founded in 2004, it had recently experienced significant growth. Aside from just being a snack food, the company also emphasized highlighting people who had shown acts of kindness around the globe. Admittedly, I was a bit skeptical, thinking their "Be Kind" movement and donations were as much about publicity and tax deductions as genuine goodwill. Nevertheless, I liked their granola bars and have since typically kept some in my desk or vehicle for a quick pick-me-up.

To be honest, I didn't think much about the company again until a few weeks ago. During a drive home, I decided to listen to a podcast. One that is in my rotation is TED Talks Daily.

Letter: exact pole information provided

Stuart Carman writes:
The light is KU/odp property and the pole also. Their pole number is the black on yellow horizontal marker. Can't make all out in pic but partial is 769764.

The vertical number is line identifier, again KU/odp.

The black on orange is windstream line identifier. And the chrome characters at bottom appear to be DuoBroadband.

A lot going on for a small town pole :-)
