Henriksons celebrate 40th wedding anniversary


Larry Blair of Elk Creek had to be taken to Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital a couple of weeks ago. He had chest pains. Larry had a heart attack quite a few years ago and had open heart surgery. They checked him out and he was given medicine and sent home.

Joe Caudill of Premium had to spend a few days in WARH recently. She had a bad infection. She is back home and feeling some better.

There was a baby shower given for Heather and T.J. Stallard of Whitesburg on April 12 at the Blackey Missionary Baptist Church. They have a little girl and Heather is due with a boy in May. Heather is the daughter of Judy Caudill of Whitesburg and Tim Caudill of Blackey.

My mom, Jean, had to have a colonoscopy on Friday in Hazard. It showed up okay but for a few polyps that had to be scraped off. She has to go back this week to have another procedure done.

Happy 40th anniversary to Jon and Loretta Henrikson of Carcassonne. It was April 20. Jon preached a sermon at the Blackey Presbyterian Church, then that evening they had a dinner for Loretta’s brothers and sisters and Loretta’s mother, Mae Fugate, at their home.

Clell and Clara Riley went to Lexington on the 15th so Clell could be checked out. They think the cancer is in his bladder muscles. He has to go back for more tests. I wish him the best.

The Blackey Doermann Memorial Presbyterian Church will be having a Relay for Life auction and chili supper on Friday, April 25. The supper will be from 5 till 6 p.m. with the auction starting at 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome.

My niece, Jessica Dixon of Carcassonne, has to have outpatient surgery at WARH today (Wednesday) for a hernia. She has had a lot of problems with it for some time now.

Barb Campbell of Letcher is now in Hammond, Ind., staying with her daughter, Teresa, and her family. She will be coming back home at the end of the month.

Some members of our community over here on Carcassonne got together one day last week and picked up garbage across our mountain. They do this a few times a year. There are too many to name them all, but they are appreciated by the rest of us. So please take your garbage home instead of throwing it out.
