By Barbara Fox/Beth Fisher

Frankfort, KY - The Kentucky Department for Public Health (DPH), within the Cabinet for Health and Family Services, encourages Kentuckians to get a flu shot during National Influenza Vaccination Week, Dec. 2-8, to help prevent the spread of flu this holiday season.

"The flu vaccine is the single best way to protect you and your loved ones against the flu," said Jeff Howard, M.D., commissioner of DPH. "If you are vaccinated, you are less likely to get the flu and spread the flu to those at greatest risk for becoming dangerously ill, including young children, pregnant women, people 65 and older and those with certain medical conditions. By getting vaccinated you are protecting your family and those people you cross paths with every day."

Letter: Question about the Christmas Parade delay

Trying to find a place to store a large float for 2 weeks is a daunting task! Can it not be moved just a week ahead?

As a long time citizen of Adair County the Christmas Parade has always been the kick off to the Christmas Season for me and my family. A tradition that we have attended for 28 years.

I have been both in the parade and watched as a bystander. For the past several years we have entered a float and have always had a great time working on them. Anyone that has ever built a float understands the time, effort, and money that goes into building one. But we love being able to see everything come together and make our plans into reality.
