Kentucky's alpaca industry celebrated in July

From Madison Pergrem

Frankfort, KY - Kentucky alpaca farmers and the alpaca industry add an enriching diversity to Kentucky's agricultural economy. This month, the Kentucky Department of Agriculture and the Kentucky Alpaca Association celebrate Kentucky Alpaca Fleece and Fiber Month.

"Kentucky is a great place to raise alpacas for many reasons," said Nancy Lindemood, president of the Kentucky Alpaca Association. "We appreciate the support from Kentucky's agricultural programs, such as Kentucky Proud, KCARD and the Extension Services that provide helpful resources to new and established alpaca farms."

The Kentucky Alpaca Association has members in 30 counties across the Commonwealth, but alpacas can be found in nearly all of Kentucky's 120 counties. The Kentucky Alpaca Association members breed and sell alpacas, produce alpaca fiber and fiber products for sale on their farms and at local markets and offer various agritourism activities.

TJ Samson FMR welcomes new physicians

From Stacey Biggs

On July 1, new physicians began their residency training at T.J. Regional Health through the University of Louisville / Glasgow Family Medicine Residency (FMR) Program.

After graduating from medical school, physicians are required to complete residency training in their chosen specialty before they are able to practice medicine independently. These new resident physicians were selected after a rigorous vetting and interview process from hundreds of applications received from graduating medical students.

Established in 1997, Glasgow FMR concentrates on training physicians for practice in a rural-based community that spans several counties and supports nearly 200,000 people. T.J. Samson Community Hospital provides residents with the unique opportunity to individualize their three years of hands-on training in a hospital setting.

This year's new resident physicians include: Micha Thomas, DO; Blessy George, MD; Manish Shetty, MD; Brenden Van Der Werff, MD and Amad Mohammad, MD.

Carol Perkins: I took my phone for a ride

Previous Column: The Pursuit of Happiness

By Carol Perkins

I took my phone for a ride. It landed a half mile from town with the cards I keep in the phone holder scattered.

A familiar face knocked on my door three days later, holding my phone. I was so glad. I had no idea where I had lost it.

"What kind of cake do you like?" I asked, filled with gratitude. By the next day, I had baked him a German Chocolate cake.

The problem started Monday when I attempted to do three things at once.
