  • At five-foot, one inch, I'm little. I'm not as little as Phyllis Gorski Houghton, but littler than Laura Isaacs - and she's little.

    Years ago, Randy Newman wrote a song about short people. He said we have "little baby legs" and we "stand so low" and that big people like him have to pick us up just to say hello.

    He said we've got "little cars that go beep, beep, beep" and little voices that go "peep, peep, peep."

    As a little person, I also have abnormally little hands and tiny crooked fingers. I wear the ruby chip ring that my husband wore when he was maybe 3 or 4.

  • Flood. House fire. Earthquake. Tornado. Hurricane. The common bond tying these disasters together is the response: the American Red Cross will be there.

    "No one can predict when the next river will flood or the next storm will hit. No one can foresee the next threat to the nation's health. What is predictable is that we will face such threats and emergencies, and that the American Red Cross will be there to offer help and hope."

  • "The Poet Laureate of People Who Hate Poetry" is a new book of poetry by local poet and writer Kathy Skaggs.

    In a review for Midwest Book Reviews, Laurel Johnson said this about the book:

    "My husband is a native of the Kentucky mountains, a true hater of poetry and all things literary. Without my knowledge, he read this little book and loved it. He shook it in my face and said, 'You ... better write a good review of this book because it's SPECIAL.' He's right. This book is special in so many ways I can't express adequately in a review."
