Bill Johnson, grandson hospitalized


Bill Johnson and his grandson, Shane Dixon, both of Woodrock, are in Pikeville Hospital. Bill has cancer and had surgery and they were able to get it all. Shane has spinal meningitis and as of Saturday he was still in the hospital and not doing well. Bill came home on Thursday but got sick and had to be taken to the emergency room on Saturday. I wish them both the best.

Late happy birthday to Tim Madden of Crases Branch. It was on April 17.

Freda Combs of Carcassone is needing prayers for her husband, Virgil, and her father, Venison Whitaker. They have both been in the hospital and are not doing well. I’m sure it’s very hard on her and all the family.

Congratulations to Josh Dixon of Carcassonne, on winning the Sprint car races at Isom. They have had two races and he has won both times. He is the son of David and Terry Dixon of Carcassonne; Josh is my nephew.

Linda Jones of Caudills Branch, had to go to Lexington for tests and has to go back again in a few weeks. She has been having some health problems. Hopefully her test results will be OK.

Happy birthday to Rhonda Fields of Jeremiah. It was on April 25.

Happy birthday to my brother-in-law, Gary “Duke” Fugate of Carcassonne. It’s on May 9. I can’t put his age because I’m afraid he might hurt me. Happy anniversary to him and my sister, Debbie. It will be their 31st anniversary on May 13. That may give you an idea about how old Duke is.

Happy birthday to Allison Blair Collins. It’s also on May 9. Allison and her husband, Doug, are having a baby boy. He is due in the middle of June.
