Oh, Kentucky

The American Cornhole Organization's world championship has moved to Owensboro.

Almost time for Winter Adventure Weekend, formerly known at "Crawlathon," at Carter Caves State Resort Park.

And somebody's got a birthday coming up in Hodgenville.

Well, this is terrifying.

Bardstown High School sent a bus of students and teachers to Washington for the inauguration, and, per The Kentucky Standard, … “ reports that the Heath High School shooting memorial is being relocated to improve access.

Interesting nuts-and-bolts reporting of resettlement of Congolese and other refugees in Kentucky, from Karla Ward in the Lexington Herald-Leader: "After families are approved for admission to the country through the U.S. Refugee Admissions Program, organizations like Kentucky Refugee Ministries step in to help them resettle here. ..."

More on the hemp boom.

From a Viper man ill with a lung disease, writing in The Hazard Herald about community support through a account: "Please keep me in your prayers. It’s been a very humbling experience for me, to say the least. I have a debt of gratitude that I can never repay. I’ll try and pay it forward though. May God bless all those who helped me in any and every way. I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart. It is all in the Lord’s hands now. It was good to know so many wonderful people came forward to help me and I am eternally grateful to and love each and everyone of you. May God bless you all."

  1. I'm too lazy to look into this, but I wonder where the hemp growing is happening. The area around Lexington was the hemp capitol of the world at one time, but that was long ago.
