WKMS also has the full text of the House resolution, which passed despite the "no" vote of U.S. Rep. Comer of Tompkinsville.

"Obviously, I want you to read all of bell hooks books. I mean, I want to read all of her writing. She does it with passion and grace that leaves me in an awe that is difficult to describe. Recently, she has released a string of children’s books that I hope you’ll also read. I hope that this will give you a little teaser into what she is capable of.  Her writing is so important right now. She writes with a grace and love that is difficult to come by. Whew, are we really hurting for some real love right now." Brandie Derusha enrolls us in bell hooks, at Book Riot.

A native western Kentuckian comes home, and he's focused on re-introducing Mayfield's YMCA to the region. Eric Walker has an interesting report in the local Messenger.

Ingram Barge of Paducah, Louisville Metro Corrections and The Entrepreneur Source of Simpsonville are among the employers to be represented at today's hiring/networking event hosted by Fort Campbell's Soldier for Life Transition Assistance Program.

A nonprofit that runs homes for people with disabilities--with reported revenue growth of $70 million over the last three years--is pulling out of Kentucky because it says it is having funding problems with the state. I found this (fantastic) Leah Shields/Justin Jones report for WPSD was considerably less fun to digest.

The eastern Kentucky miners whose pay was reportedly taken back from a bankrupt coal operator got a boost from a Harlan priest this week.


  1. The only part of Stranger Things 3 that I have seen is a scene at the very beginning of the first episode where the kids are walking through a new mall in the summer of (I think) 1985. It looks spectacular, and I honestly feel bad for today's kids that they will not have that much fun.
