  • When I was about 2 years old, I bopped my baby brother with a wooden hammer and once put a wad of gum in my sister’s hair.
    I was part of a group of kids who called a girl in our neighborhood “fungus face,” and in eighth grade, I spread vicious rumors about a girl who I thought stole my boyfriend.
    Once, I shoplifted a bottle of Compound W wart remover and a Yardley Lip Slicker lipstick from Thrifty Drug Store.

  • World War I was touted as “the war to end all wars,” and yet 21 years after its conclusion, another world war began in which 12 countries participated and over 60 million people died.  
    World War II took the lives of 405,000 Americans, and although no battles were fought on American soil, the war affected all phases of American life. It caused shortages that required Americans to deal with rationing. Ration stamps were issued to allow families to purchase items in short supply like sugar, meat and gasoline.

  • I’m back! There was no Kay’s Branch News last week. Halfway through typing the news my screen went black. I restarted, but it did no good. I assumed my computer had died. I called Ann. She is my computer expert. She came down and ordered me another “box.” It came on Wednesday. She hooked everything up and it still wasn’t working, so, when all else fails I call Joel and ask him to send over their computer whiz.

  • Lately, I’ve been pondering the story Jesus told of the lost son, or what’s more commonly called the parable of the prodigal son.
    The son demands his inheritance from his father, which is basically him telling his dad he wishes him dead, and then takes the money and runs far away, squandering his wealth on wild living.
    When he ends up broke, he finds a job feeding pigs and finds himself so hungry that he longs to eat the pig food.

  • Many early roads that snaked through the hills and hollows of Kentucky have been lost to history, their names and locations forever erased from the memory of man. Most were named after a settler who held a patent on land through which the road ran. However, remnants of the some of these roads exist, and their stories linger in local folklore.
    Road names were known to change over time, perhaps when the pronunciation of a road wasn’t clearly understood. Such seems the case with Kay’s Branch Road.

  • Danny and Kendall O’Toole along with big sister, Reese, proudly introduce the newest addition to their family, Beckham Robert.
