Grateful to hospital
I was in the hospital the week of Jan. 9, and the staff was wonderful. Dr. Bartee and Dr. Noe were great during my colon surgery. I was also in the hospital twice last year, and the staff was also wonderful. The only problem was they did not have WGN and The Weather Channel on the TV. Also, they need to have the eggshell mattresses on all the beds without the patient having to request it from the doctor.
Hopefully, when they move into their new hospital they will have the two channels on the TV and will have softer mattresses for the patients to sleep on. LifePoint will be a great addition to the community.
Last year, when I went to the emergency room, Judy Walker and the staff were great and took care of me in a professional manner.
Congratulations to the Sun
To the editor:
Some of us have known for a long time that The Winchester Sun is the best small daily in the state, and now a group of out-of-state judges has confirmed it.
I was pleased to learn that the Sun’s news staff won the Kentucky Press Association’s general excellence award for for its circulation category at the annual convention Friday night. It is a well-deserved honor for a group of people who are talented and dedicated to their work and committed to serving their community.
James Mann, Rachel Parsons, Fred Petke, Katie Perkowski, Keith Taylor, David Stone, Bob Flynn and Shane Walters (a former employee) should be appreciated by all the Sun’s readers for work well done. It is the cumulative score of their combined individual awards that added up to the general excellence designation.
We came close many times in the six years that I was the managing editor, but this time, they won the gold. I’m proud of them.
The work I’m doing now as a legislative reporter for the Associated Press is interesting and rewarding, and I’m looking forward to other opportunities. But I will always look back fondly on my years at the Sun and remember what a privilege it was to work with many fine community journalists, including those who have moved on in their careers and those who are there now.
The work they are doing is invaluable to our community.
