  • Consider becoming an organ donor


    November is a month of giving thanks! It is a time that many take the time to enjoy family and friends and to remember all the “Good Things” in their life! Every November begins a new season of “giving,” and it is also a time that many around the world recognize as the “Donor Sabbath” month.

    The American Lung Association in Kentucky debuted its all-new cycling event, Bike the Bluegrass, offering three routes through Carroll, Owen and Gallatin counties last Saturday, Sept. 15, and the community couldn’t have been kinder or more welcoming.

    Community leaders in all three counties, convened by Mayor Robb Adams, worked in advance to ensure our riders’ safety, churches hosted rest stops for riders, people waved and encouraged cyclists, and drivers were so cautious and considerate.
