Oh, Kentucky


I will be excited to read the Jim Host story.

I tend to want to live in and be in houses with some age, but I do love myself a new hotel.

"In Kentucky alone, SNAP keeps 164,000 of us out of poverty, including 73,000 children. It also helps our economy. In 2017, the federal government injected $933 million into local Kentucky economies through SNAP. And by reducing food insecurity, SNAP keeps us healthier, too. Research shows that people who are food insecure are likelier to have a chronic disease such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes. Despite all of these benefits, the state has erected new barriers to SNAP participation in recent months."

"There is no generic marker for 'race'--it is a creation of our culture and law, and very often a cruel creation."

"We’ve had nothing but crap from the people that have attended these meetings that are saying that we’re not doing anything and, by God, we need to be doing this. And this is one of the steps that you take before you even get to the decision-making process."

Paintsville's Market 606 small-business-Saturday shopping event included what the local Herald described as "a massive giveaway of free Christmas decorations," which is an excellent idea.

Christmas parades: Owensboro, Nov. 17; Ashland, Nov. 20; Brownsville, Nov. 24; Arlington, Berea, Bowling Green, Cadiz, Columbia, Lawrenceburg, Madisonville, Marion, Paducah, Salyersville, Somerset and Whitley City, Dec. 1; Dawson Springs, Dec. 2; Lexington, Dec. 4; Greenup, Dec. 6; Frankfort, Monticello and Richmond, Dec. 7; Elkton (grandly marshaled by a member of the CBK58 champs and first-ever basketball coach at Todd County Central High), Eubank and Hopkinsville, Dec. 8, and Burnside and La Center, Dec. 15.
