  • 2017 was a groundbreaking year in national and local efforts to save lives through organ donation. In Kentucky, 2017 marked the second highest number of lives saved. Thanks to 108 heroic organ donors and their families, 361 organs were recovered and transplanted.  Tissue donations from 330 people helped heal thousands of patients.

  • As the story goes, Chippy the parakeet never saw it coming.

    His owner had decided to use the vacuum cleaner hose to clean out Chippy’s cage – with Chippy still sitting on his perch.

    As Chippy’s owner turned on the vacuum cleaner, the phone rang, and as she reached to answer it, the vacuum cleaner hose moved slightly toward Chippy and – “thwuuupp!”

    Chippy’s owner immediately dropped the phone and tore open the vacuum cleaner bag to rescue a very dusty, very scared bird.

  • The meteorologists on every station warned us of a nasty stretch of winter weather heading our way. I wasn’t one of the panicked hoard that descended upon every grocery, big box store and stop-n-go frantically making purchases then racing home with milk and bread clutched in their hands. I honestly didn’t get the correlation between snowstorms and these two commodities. As for me a gallon of milk and a loaf of bread can last my family a week. Additionally, when the stores run short of 2 percent, my almond milk is always in stock! I think I may be their only customer.
