    The Record

    A Leitchfield man, who’s been battling a fatal lung disease for more than a year, received an Easter miracle of sorts.

    Larry Logsdon underwent a double-lung transplant Sunday in Lexington, a potential cure for his idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. His son, Shaun Logsdon, said Tuesday afternoon that his father was “doing real good” and already had been sitting up in a chair.

  • Praying for some breathing room

    Idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis is an illness few know about, but it takes more lives each year than breast cancer.

    Larry Logsdon of Leitchfield was diagnosed with the disease about 18 months ago and now is waiting for a double-lung transplant.

    “Both (my lungs) are like a cracker,” Logsdon said. “I don’t hurt, I just have no air.”

    When Dr. Gay Fulkerson isn’t spending time caring for patients at her family practice in Leitchfield, she’s likely to be caring for strangers in Nicaragua and sharing the gospel.

    Fulkerson travels abroad on a mission trip twice a year. Most recently, she visited Los Chiles, Nicaragua, in the first week of March.

    Fulkerson travels to these areas as a part of Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International’s Mission Trip Program.

    The Record

    Although former Twin Lakes Regional Medical Center CEO Stephen Meredith says he retired two years ago, you’d never know it based on how busy he’s been.

    Meredith lost the 2014 primary election for Kentucky state representative of District 18 to Tim Moore but learned since that he doesn’t have to hold a public office to make a difference in the community.

  • Students compete in spelling bee

    Precipitation. P-R-E-C-I-P-I-T-A-T-I-O-N. Precipitation.

    Gabriel Stinnett spelled the word correctly for the win in the fifth-grade spelling bee on Saturday, Feb. 14. The Clarkson Elementary School student was one of dozens of spellers that attended the annual bee that determined winners in fourth, fifth, sixth and the final seventh/eighth grade contests.

    Few realized the extent of the coming precipitation in the form of snow that would cover the county just two days later.

    Inside Carolyn Thomason’s office, you’ll find dozens of children’s books and photographs. On her resume you’ll find four pages of experience and commitment to education, children, family and community. There’s no doubt her drive and constant involvement helps shape her purpose.

    “I just think it’s important to be involved and to give back,” she said.
