    By Al Cross,
    Kentucky Health News
     “Today we change the course of Kentucky’s history.”

  • Look for warning signs and think before you act

    It saddens me to know that there has yet again been a young life taken from the world at such an early age.
    A young HCHS student allgedly took his own life over the weekend, leaving behind a host of family and friends to grieve his death.
    While everyone wants to know the answers to why, how and when, all that I care about are that measures are still not taken to prevent things like this from happening.
    Now I am not so naive to think that there is a magical switch that can be turned off to disable people from ever harming themselves.
