Oh, Kentucky

Toward keeping Kentucky welcoming.

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Louisville this Sunday is hosting the Rev. Sandhya Rani Sandhya, founder and director of a collective of 40 organizations creating access, equity and dignity for all in the Oakland, California, area and author of Pre-Post Racial America: Spiritual Stories from the Front Lines.

From WKMS, MSU’s NPR station: "Overcrowded jails in Louisville and across the state aren’t a new issue facing law enforcement and prosecutors in Kentucky. State officials made a push last year to reopen three private prisons that were previously closed amid allegations of mismanagement and reports of sexual abuse. …"

Is AmeriCorps assuming operation of the hospital in Pineville?

From The Hazard Herald: "In 2015, Cornett and his wife moved from Jeremiah, Ky., to Georgetown, Ky., in hopes that an opportunity to work with the Toyota plant would help get their life started. Unfortunately, not all prospects work out the way we want them to."

The Manchester Enterprise has been crowdsourcing the best of Clay County (coffee shop, EKU professor, etc.)

"Santa" this past Christmas went to work on helping offset eventual college expenses for children of Calloway County deputies.

Per the previously reported darkness on the edge of Bardstown, ... a bunch of followers of The Kentucky Standard Facebook page seem to feel a new local whistleblower law will cast a little disinfecting sunlight on the situation. Also, Captain D's is coming.

Metcalfe County has a new animal shelter.


  1. Interesting about AmeriCorps. Didn't know they did work like that.

  2. Me, neither. The article actually called the potential operators, "AmeriCore," and I searched for maybe a for-profit service provider by that name. Didn't find anything along those lines--I'm pretty sure they must've meant AmeriCorps.
