  • Finley man gets 18 years for manslaughter

  • Health care professionals have our blessing

    It takes a special kind of person to care for those who are sick or hurt. In addition to all the "learned knowledge," such as education and training, it also takes patience, kindness and genuine caring.

    A majority of the health care professionals in our community are exactly that, and none of them more so than nurses and nurses' aides.

    For all their expertise, doctors are often rushed to the point of checking on a patient, signing some orders and hurrying on to the next patient before heading to their offices.

    Nurses and aides, however, remain with their patients.

  • Wording changes on alcohol question

    Voters within the City limits will see a slightly different alcohol question when they go to the polls on May 20.

    A portion of the question requiring that any alcohol sold be served in conjunction with a meal was omitted from circulated petitions and news reports on the issue.

    Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney said he was unaware of the stipulation until he spoke with County Attorney Craig Cox recently.

    "This was the first time this question was asked in Kentucky and we all missed it," Carney said.

  • Grace Notes: Change of heart

    The headline caught my attention: 'I was given a young man's heart - and started craving beer and Kentucky Fried Chicken.'

    Claire Sylvia, a 47-year-old woman who lives somewhere in the UK, had a heart and lung transplant in 1988, receiving the organs from an 18-year-old boy who had been killed in a motorcycle accident.

    Shortly after the surgery she noticed she had acquired the characteristics and cravings of the donor. She wanted a beer, she told a reporter who had come to the hospital to interview her. (She didn't like beer before the surgery.)
