    Is it my imagination, or not, but do bad things generally happen in threes? Seems like I’ve heard that somewhere.
    This past weekend was eventful for the Kendalls and also for a couple of other families. Sadly, all three events dealt with one of life’s certainties...death.
    Two weeks ago, a family friend in Ocala, Florida passed away. She was one of 17 people in my mother’s 1951 graduating class at Cynthiana High School.
    Betty McClain Ashbrook passed away in late February and her family held a memorial service for her on Sunday, March 17.

    To the editor:
    This is written in response to last week’s letter to the editor alleging that special needs children are not welcome at HarriCyn Athletics and encouraging parents of special needs children to go elsewhere.
    While I do not know the mother or her child, I do know the owners and coaches of HCA and HCA Gems very well. My oldest daughter has cheered for the Gems for four years and my youngest two daughters are members of the preschool class mentioned in the letter.

    Have you ever heard it? “Who me? I don’t have an accent.” I thought that for years and with good reason.
    My mother, living in Appalchia in what seemed to her exile from her beloved Bluegrass country, cringed at hearing the flat i, string of prepositions and words so old they had to be snatched straight out of some Elizabethan myth. Being an English teacher and a writer, those sounds seemed to her foreign and not at all educated.
