    Quick thinking saved a life

    I want to thank the nurses and doctors at the emergency room of Hardin Memorial Hospital and the local AirEvac flight crew for saving my life. On April 25, at my home I felt the crush of pressure on my chest and arm, and told my husband, Sam, that I needed to go to the emergency room, that I thought I was having a heart attack.

    Traffic tweak needed

    I acknowledge the fact that the new configuration of lanes on West Dixie Avenue is a major improvement to traffic control. It has helped greatly in that the lanes are wider and therefore makes the road easier to use.

    May is Foster Care Awareness Month

    Many people know of foster care, but few really understand how the system works, the role of the foster parents and most importantly, the experience of the children and youth in care.

    More than 6,800 Kentucky children and youth are in out-of-home care. Most are placed in temporary foster care due to parental neglect or abuse. The average age of a child in care is 10.7 years.

    More than 73 percent of the children/youth in care are white; 19.3 percent are black and 4.3 percent are Hispanic.

    Ted, white and blue

My view, as a retired U.S. Army veteran, a retired Army sergeant major, is one that the commander(s) who made the decision felt that because Nugent made these comments with foresight and malice toward their commander-in-chief that intent implied.
