In recognition of World Stroke Day, Dr. Naveed Ahmed, Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) neurologist and Medical Director of the Primary Stroke Center presented the newest stroke award to the team of people he feels helped their Primary Stroke Center earn this award.


Last month the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association awarded PMC's Primary Stroke Center the Get With The Guidelines®-Stroke Gold Plus Quality Achievement Award with Target: Stroke Honor Roll Elite.


This marks the third consecutive year the stroke center has earned Honor Roll Elite status.


The award recognizes PMC's commitment and success ensuring that stroke patients receive the most appropriate treatment according to nationally recognized, research-based guidelines based on the latest scientific evidence.


"It was truly an honor to accept this award on behalf of the Pikeville Medical Primary Stroke Center," said Dr. Ahmed. "As the Medical Director of the stroke program, I want to thank and commend the physicians and staff in the emergency department, EMS staff, radiology, critical care, PMC's neurosurgeons, the Primary Stroke Center hospitalists and staff on the 7th floor, and the inpatient rehabilitation hospital," Dr. Ahmed continued. "This award is only possible with the great support we have from administration, the board of directors and Mr. May."


"World Stroke Day is a perfect opportunity to ensure that our family and friends are aware of the signs and symptoms of Stroke as well as their risk factors," said Brigetta Collins, PMC Primary Stroke Center Coordinator. "We as health care professionals can help patients address stroke risk factors, such as high blood pressure, tobacco use, diabetes, high cholesterol, obesity and physical inactivity," Collins continued. "Knowing your individual risk factors and addressing them through lifestyle changes and medicine is critical to reducing strokes."


According to the American Heart Association/American Stroke Association, stroke ranks fifth in causes of death and is a leading cause of adult disability in the United States.


Sometimes a stroke develops gradually, but individuals are more likely to have one or more sudden warning signs.


These include numbness or weakness in your face, arm, or leg, especially on one side, confusion or trouble understanding other people, trouble speaking and trouble seeing with one or both eyes.


The ability to recognize the signs and symptoms of a stroke can mean the difference between life and death.


Every second counts, so remember to act F.A.S.T.


Face: Ask them to smile. Does one side of the face droop?


Arm: Ask them to raise both arms. Does one arm drift downward?


Speech: Ask them to repeat a simple sentence. Does the speech sound slurred or strange?


Time: If any of these signs are observed, it's time to call an ambulance.


On average, someone suffers a stroke every 40 seconds; someone dies of a stroke every four minutes; and 795,000 people suffer a new or recurrent stroke each year.


"Our Primary Stroke Center is proud that we provide the best evidence based treatments possible for Stroke patient care throughout the patient's stay," said Collins.

PIKEVILLE —Officials gathered at the Kentucky Enterprise Industrial Park on Oct. 27 to host a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate a new manufacturing company coming to Pikeville.


"You've got a team in Pikeville, it's a great team," Congressman Harold "Hal" Rogers said. "We have a winning team and I want us to stay as a team. We can make good things happen to provide jobs to keep our young people here."


The ribbon cutting took place where officials broke ground on the Kentucky Enterprise Industrial Park Speculative Building in September.


"Just a few months ago we were here for the ground breaking for the Kentucky Enterprise Industrial Park and the speculative building. They say once you build it, they will come," he said.


"But, Silver Liner came before we even laid the first brick. That's because the CEO Chris Tomlinson knows the value of this land and the great work ethic that exists in eastern Kentucky."


Silver Liner, a tanker truck manufacturing company will go inside the 60,000 square-foot spec building.


"Today is not only a great day for Silver Liner but this is a great day for Pikeville and eastern Kentucky," Chris Tomlinson said. "I knew the people here in eastern Kentucky have skill, drive and determination to build these tanker trucks. Although I had people tell me to build Silver Liner elsewhere, I knew we would be successful here at home."


He said this will provide our out of work coal miners, who are very skilled and motivated, the quality jobs that they deserve.


"We've lost 12,000 coal mining jobs in Kentucky in these last eight years. It's devastating, but I would say the coal industry is why we have the best workforce in the country. We have that to our great advantage. They are highly skilled, dedicated mechanics and workers," Congressman Rogers said.


He said we can power past the current obstacles that we face.


"That's why we launched Shaping Our Appalachian Region, to diversify our economy and pull our resources together and develop new innovative opportunities right here at home," Rogers said. "We are finally beginning to see the fruits of those efforts, where former coal miners are now defining code."


He said he believes the industrial park will be filled to capacity providing great job opportunities for our people.


"Thanks to American Electric Power (AEP), more businesses will soon be able to re-locate here to this great park. The war on coal is over and Kentucky is looking good. Congratulations to Silver Liner, we look forward to working with them in the future," Rogers concluded.


AEP presented a $120,000 economic development grant to the City of Pikeville during the ceremony.


"I am committed to not only making Silver Liner a success but to also assisting in the future growth and development of Pikeville and eastern Kentucky. Together we will make Silver Liner great and become international," Tomlinson concluded.


Officials estimate Silver Liner will be open for business within the next 18 months.

COMING SOON: U.S. Congressman Harold "Hal" Rogers addresses the crowd on hand to announce Silver Liner was coming to the Kentucky Enterprise Industrial Park site within the next 18 months. Pictured at left are City Manager Phillip Elswick and Mayor Jimmy Carter.

PRESTONSBURG — Appalachian Hospice Care (AHC) held its fourth-annual Veterans Appreciation Lunch at the National Guard Armory on Oct. 26.


"This event is an effort of AHC to recognize the veterans in our Big Sandy Area," Founder/President of Appalachian Hospice Care Sharon Branham said. "AHC provides care to many veterans who are at the end of their life. We decided we wanted do something to honor our veterans during their lifetime."


She said around 100 volunteers gave a helping hand during this event.


"The thing we like about this event is we serve the veterans. No veteran or their guest stands in line, we actually serve them and we believe that's another way to honor them," Branham said.


She said this is an opportunity to give back to those who have made sacrifices for our country.


"It's really heart-warming to see the community come together and support veterans during their lifetime and caring for those who have served us and ensure the freedom for our country," Branham added.


Air Force Veteran Kennith Hamilton offered advice to today's youth.


"The young people today are not aware that whatever job you see out here in civilian life is also in the military. It's not all run and gun," Hamilton said, who was on a support base in Taiwan. "There's so many different job opportunities."


He also touched on one of his favorite memories as a young man.


"When I was really young, I was a paper boy and would read about different places around the world. I would say that I wanted to go to one of those places when I get older. Because I was in the service, I was able to travel across the pacific to Taiwan and over to Germany," Hamilton concluded.


U.S. Army Veteran Jerry Roberts, who served in the Vietnam War as a combat engineer from 1966-68, encouraged those wanting to enter the service, to chase their dream.


"If they're willing to go and serve, do what you're instructed to do. It makes things work better," Roberts said. "You're doing a real good cause by serving your country."


Goldsmith Hercules, U.S. Army Veteran, served from 2000-15 in Iraq twice and Afghanistan.


"I was stationed in Germany, England, Macedonia, Egypt and other places," he said. "If you want to serve, serve. But do it with all your heart."


All three men are part of the Disabled American Veterans (DAV) Floyd County Chapter, helping local veterans.


"These are the people that have served us, they protected our rights. They're the reason we are able to have this, they're the reason we are able to play ball and golf – to enjoy the liberties we have in the United States of America," Les Stapleton Mayor of Prestonsburg said. "They're the reason and we need to pay respects to them anytime we can."


AHC has been providing quality comprehensive hospice services throughout Pike County since 1990 and expanded to Floyd, Johnson, Martin and Magoffin counties in April 2005. Hospice is a special health care provider for patients and families who are experiencing a life-limiting illness.


The center serves around 8,000 veterans throughout the five-county area.


Branham said this event would not be possible without community sponsors and support.


"Our volunteers come from many different areas in our five counties. It really is a partnership in coming together to put this event on," she said. "It's so exciting to know that when they leave here today, they feel special and they look forward to next year."


Branham said another special AHC event happening right around the corner is their annual tree lighting ceremony.


"Our annual tree lighting ceremony will take place on Dec. 8 at the Mountain Arts Center beginning at 6 p.m. We invite you to come hang a dove on our memorial tree," she concluded. "The service is not just for those who have passed but for ones that have been provided service by AHC or someone who wants to get involved."


For more information, call 606-432-2112.

PIKEVILLE —At a ribbon cutting ceremony held at the Kentucky Enterprise Industrial Park on Oct. 27, Kentucky Power presented a $120,000 economic development grant to the City of Pikeville to help draw industry and jobs to the region.


The grant will help fund geotechnical surveying, geophysical boring and plot design at the industrial park. The City of Pikeville, Shaping Our Appalachian Region and One East Kentucky will also provide matching funds for the $300,000 study.


"Everybody understands what this means for Kentucky. We're not talking just Pikeville, we're talking all of eastern Kentucky. As this place begins to fill up, you're going to see this area drawing east of Lexington people coming here to work," Pikeville Mayor Jimmy Carter said. "I know it's a bold statement, but I think it's a fair statement to make."


He said that organizations across the state have been very responsive to our needs.


"Once we get these jobs going here, people are going to be coming to us to work," Carter concluded. "Again, I would like to thank AEP and Kentucky Power for their check today, it's huge."




The award includes $100,000 from Kentucky Power Economic Growth Grant (K-PEGG) program and $20,000 from American Electric Power (AEP). The K-PEGG program is a partnership between Kentucky Power customers and stockholders.


The K-PEGG grant is a rolling fund that generates more than $600,000 annually for investment at the local and regional levels.


The program is available in all 20 counties that Kentucky Power serves.

I remember, in a time not so distant, being led by a teacher in a line of class mates to stand outside a two-room wooden schoolhouse where we gazed into the blue morning sky and lifted our voices and solemnly recited the pledge of allegiance to our American flag.


I stood in awe as a child, but as an adult the sight of a fluttering flag floods my heart with pride.


Today it reminds me of all those men and women who willingly and bravely serve our country and the familiar motto: "They all gave — but some gave all!"


Now with joyful hearts, let us, as proud Americans, lift our voices to God, thanking Him for all those who continue to serve.


Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends."

As Flu season is approaching. Preparation is key in preventing most seasonal flu activity.


Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) suggests getting the vaccine as soon as it becomes available each year, usually by October, to help reduce the effects of this potentially deadly virus.


However, as long as flu viruses are circulating in the community, it's not too late to get vaccinated.


"I recommend everyone six months of age and older to get the yearly flu vaccine as the first step in protecting against the flu," PMC Director of Infection Control Nina Reynolds said.


The flu can cause certain chronic health conditions, such as asthma, heart disease or diabetes. Any flu infection can carry a risk of serious complications, hospitalizations or death, even among otherwise healthy children and adults.


Everyday preventative measures like hand washing and staying home from work or school while sick can reduce the spread of germs.


Here are some everyday preventive actions to help reduce your chances of getting the flu:


• Try to avoid close contact with sick people


• If you or your child gets sick with flu like illness, stay home for at least 24 hours after the fever is gone except to get medical care or for other necessities


• While sick, limit contact with others as much as possible to keep from infecting them


• Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze


• Wash your hands often with soap and water. If soap and water are not available use an alcohol based hand rub


• Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth


• Clean and disinfect surfaces and objects that may be contaminated with germs like the flu.


PMC is now offering the flu vaccine. Call to schedule an appointment at 606-218-3500.

GOODY — The mark of a true champion is how one responds to getting hit square in the mouth.


Johnson Central kicked Belfry around through all but the final three minutes of the first half, building a 19-0 lead before the Pirates roared back for a stunning 35-19 win in the regular season finale played at CAM Stadium on Oct. 27.


The Golden Eagles, who closed out the regular season with back-to-back losses, appeared unstoppable behind the rushing attack of Blake Gamble and Devin Johnson.


Gamble, who finished with 72 yards on nine carries, set up the game's first score, capped off by quarterback Riley Preece's one-yard run with 8 seconds left in the opening period. Dalton Collins' PAT kick made it 7-0.


Johnson had just 28 yards on nine rushing attempts, but his three-yard run with 6:50 remaining in the first half and a five-yard run with 5:30 to go push the lead to 19-0.


Belfry's comeback was fueled by Taveon Hunter's 63-yard pass from quarterback Avery Browning with 2:52 left, pulling the Pirates to within 19-7. Hunter caught two passes for 77 yards and finished with 95 yards rushing on seven attempts.


Hunter ran 35 yards for a touchdown with 9:37 left to go in the third quarter to make it 19-14. His 43-yard run with 39 seconds to go put the Pirates ahead for good and the first time at 21-19.


Hunter scored his fourth touchdown on a 14-yard pass from Browning with 9:38 left to play. Running back Derek Wellman, who rushed for 46 yards on 12 carries, capped the scoring with a seven-yard run with 4:28 remaining.


Both teams begin post-season play tonight as Belfry will host Thomas Nelson (3-7) in Class 3A while Johnson Central welcomes Mason County (7-3) in Class 5A.
