  • The first few years of a child’s life play a critical role in its overall success or failure as an adult. Recently a new group was created to help the children of Harrison County grow and develop to their full potential.  
    The group is called the “Harrison County Community Early Childhood Council” (CECC) and its purpose is to bring organizations together so that they can serve the area’s children more efficiently and effectively.

  • Bluegrass Community and Technical College (BCTC) Dental Hygiene student, Kacey L. Muntz, has been named the 2011 recipient of the L.R. Bean Dental Radiology Award.

In 1991, he created an endowment for a dental hygiene student who showed ‘empathy with patients, a sense of humor, and exceptional abilities in the area of oral radiology.’ Since Bean’s death, his family has continued to sponsor the scholarship.

  • With every stitch, Mary Ann Upton remembers. Five years ago, she watched her newborn grandson fight for his life. He was born with a heart defect that lead to open heart surgery when he was only three days old. In the midst of all the worry and pain, the local chapter of Project Linus brought the baby a blanket.
    “It’s put up now,” said the grandmother of five. “One day, maybe he’ll take it out and tell the story to his children. It really meant a lot. Hospitals can be so cold and impersonal. What Project Linus did was so good.”

  • If I were God, I would’ve made people with delay devices on their mouths or a filter of some kind.
    For example, when your brain wants to say, “Poodles aren’t real dogs,” before it comes out of your mouth the delay device would kick in and send you a message: “Really? Is that really what you want to say in front of this group of people who may or may not include poodle owners?”
