  • In dedication to mothers

    Last Sunday, May 10, we celebrated Mother’s Day. One day out of the year, we have this beautiful opportunity to give back to the people who have given us so much: our moms. We love them (at times, maybe not so much) and as we get older, sometimes, we become them. Whether she carried you inside of her for nine months or is a non-blood related woman who has loved you like her own, most people can identify a person who they can be thankful for on this holiday.

  • Rescued

    Carol West and her husband, Keith, of Sanders, Ky. were camping at General Butler State Resort Park May 3, when Keith noticed a pair of Baltimore Orioles. The birds had found some discarded fishing line and were building their nest about 35 feet up in a tree.

    When Keith next looked up he saw the female bird entwined in the fishing line and hanging upside down. The male bird was distraught and flew up to her several times trying to help. At times the bird could manage to get back up on a limb but would fall again.
