Jodi Fugate is home from the hospital


My news is behind a few weeks again.

Jodi Fugate of Carbon Glow, was recently in Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital. She was having problems with her heart and then had pneumonia. She is home and doing better.

Happy birthday to my niece, Ashlee Morgan of Isom. She was 19 on Nov. 4 and her dad, Randy, has a birthday on the 11th.

My sympathy to the family of Maria Fields of Letcher. She died last week. She was the wife of Coy Fields.

My family got together a few weeks ago at my parents’ cabin over here where I live and had a fish fry. We also had my cousin, Christine Lannin, and her daughter, Kelly, in from Indiana. They came in that Sunday and left on Friday. While they were here we drove them up Linefork to Lilly Cornett Woods. Christine loves old barns so she took some pictures — not too many old ones to find anymore.

Happy birthday to Marissa Jent of Elk Creek. She turned one on Oct. 30. She is the daughter of Benji and Robin Jent and the granddaughter of Raymond and Vernie Jent. I don’t know Robin’s family.

Shane Dixon of Woodrock, was back in a Tennessee hospital last week. He had surgery on his eye from the bad wreck he was in awhile ago and is having more problems with one eye.

My parents, P-nut and Jean, and Bruce and Rita Gilley went down and visited with Joe and Dud Halcomb of Ulvah. Joe had to have surgery in Lexington for cancer; she had in her lower stomach. She is doing a lot better.

Happy 26th birthday to my cousin, Sarah Back of Lexington. It was on Nov. 2. She is the daughter of Dorse and Debbie Back of Elk Creek.

Happy birthday to Sean Hall of Knott County. It was on Oct. 31. He is the son of Danny and Von Hall of Blackey.

Grace Caudill of Elk Creek, is still in Letcher Manor Nursing Home but was told just as soon as she can get around well with her walker she can come home. She fell awhile back and fractured her hip.

Thelma Cornett, a former resident of Blackey from 1948 to 1982, had a bad fall Oct. 25 at her home in Burnside and broke her right thigh bone. Surgery was performed and a pin was put in her leg on Oct. 26. She is 88 years old, and lives alone. Two years ago, she fell and broke her left leg in the same place.
