Bill Caudill of Blackey, as of last Wednesday, is doing better. He was taken out of ICU and put in a regular room. He has to have a back brace put on and have therapy. He wrecked on an ATV earlier in the week at his home. It rolled three of four times. He had to be flown out to Holston Valley Hospital. I wish him a speedy recovery. His wife Billie Joe is staying with him.
Kylie Miller of Blackey had to have tubes put in her ears last week in Pikeville. She came home that day and is doing well. She is the daughter of Jai and Michelle Miller and has a baby brother, Camdon. Happy birthday to Jai. It was on April 30.
Marine Corporal Zachary R. Arnold returned to the states from Afghanistan on April 20. He is the grandson of the late Bud Arnold and the son of Tim Arnold of Louisville.

Zachary is assigned to Dark Horse Kilo and Weapons Company 3rd Battalion 5th Marines at Camp Pendleton in San Diego, Calif. The Arnold family feels highly blessed to have Zachary back in the U.S. safe and sound. Blackey
