Sam Neace with chilling news in The Hazard Herald: No. 1 on the Centers for Disease Control’s list of U.S. counties most vulnerable to soon developing an HIV and Hepatitis C epidemic is Kentucky’s Wolfe County. No. 3 is Breathitt County. No. 4 is Perry, and No. 5 is Clay. “Out of the top 220 counties on the CDC’s list, 54 of them are located in Kentucky,” he reports.

"" is for sale.

You going to the prom?
