Carol Perkins: Change is in the air

Previous Column: New beginnings and rebirth

By Carol Perkins

Like the weather, I often feel a change blowing my way. Not necessarily concerning my physical self, which could always use updating, but more than likely about my surroundings. Moving a chair from one room to another or hanging up-to-date family photos often calms these strong winds.

This past year, with Guy's help, I have made significant changes in the house, but I've run out of ideas. It is now time for a personal improvement project. A remake.

In February, I upgraded my eyewear.

KY Circuit Court Clerks celebrate Donate Life Month

Every April, Adair County Circuit Court Clerk Dennis Loy celebrates National Donate Life Month in partnership with the Kentucky Circuit Court Clerks' Trust For Life and Donate Life America.

To help illustrate the message of donation, Donate Life America creates unique artwork for each National Donate Life Month. The 2021 National Donate Life Month art was inspired by the springtime scene of a garden.

A garden and the insects within in it serve as symbols of hope, courage, and transformed life -- themes repeatedly found within the donation and transplantation journey. April is a time to focus Adair County's attention on every individual's power to make LIFE possible by registering his or her decision to be a potential organ and tissue donor.

"Just as each of us takes care of our own garden, registering as an organ donor produces hope within our own community," said Dennis Loy, Adair County Circuit Court Clerk.

By Amy Tomlinson
Lake Cumberland District Health Department

Starting next Monday, COVID-19 vaccinations will be opened to everyone! Let's finish strong and everyone get the vaccine as soon as you can.

Today we added more cases than for the same period last week, so our 7-day-average incidence rate went up. Keep in mind, some of our 7-day-incidence data will be skewed over the next few days as we are reconciling our data against the state data. Our 7-day incidence chart is showing 4 counties in the "yellow-community-spread" category, Casey, Pulaski, Russell, and Taylor; 3 counties in the "orange-accelerated" range of community-spread: Adair, Cumberland, and Wayne; and 3 counties in the "red-critical" range: Clinton, Green, and McCreary.
