My sympathy to the family of Bemis Pratt. He died last week. He had been sick for some time. He lived on Brown Settlement below Blackey.

Happy birthday to Mabel King of Crases Branch. It was on Feb. 24.

Shirley Gilley of Doty had to be taken to Whitesburg Appalachian Regional Hospital a few weeks ago, then taken on to Lexington. She was on a ventilator for awhile and they said she was having mini strokes. She is home now doing better but is a little weak.

Barb Campbell of Letcher was in the WARH for a few days. She had an infection.

Happy birthday to Jason Ison of Isom. It was on Feb. 18.

Vernie Jent of Elk Creek has been in the hospital. She was having problems with her kidneys and had a staph infection. She is home now and doing better.

Happy birthday to Tori Kay Reid of London. She turned one on Feb. 22. She is the daughter of Jordan and Lindsey Reid. Her grandparents are Jeff and Kay Hampton, also of Lon- don, and her great-grandmothers are Mae Fugate of Carcassonne and Jean Hampton of Letcher.

B.J., Shanna, Miss Em and Gavin Adams of Carcassonne went to Sevierville, Tenn., and stayed at a new hotel that has a water park, grocery store, and restaurants it in. The kids had a ball. The night before they left, B.J., Shanna and Miss Em went to see Buck Cherry and other groups at the Pikeville Expo Center. They came home from Tennessee on Thursday.

Late happy birthday to David Dixon of Carcassonne. It was on Feb. 22.
