  • I can't remember exactly what I was whining about, but a month or so ago I was telling the one I call my uncle-dad about stuff that was going on.

    Actually, the stuff that was going on was serious stuff, so I wasn't really whining; I was seriously upset. Nevertheless, when I finished he said, "Cheer up! You have the past to look forward to."

    At the time, I attributed his comment to his advanced years and maybe a bit of senility setting in. Or maybe he didn't hear me correctly or was just trying to get me to shut my yap.

  • America loses hundreds of World War II veterans every day. With them go invaluable eyewitness accounts of a pivotal time in history. The Kentucky Historical Society is working to preserve stories of the WWII years, both from combat and from the homefront.

  • Holidays, bad weather and illness are a few reasons the blood supply often drops to critical levels during the winter months. But a stable supply is necessary to ensure blood is available when patients need it most.

    That's where you come in.

    As a token of appreciation, all participants in January blood drives will be eligible to enter a region-wide drawing for a high-definition television worth $1,000.
