Hamilton on cover of magazine
Kellen Hamilton has a goal of becoming a dentist. At the moment, however, she is getting work experience as a model.
She is one of three children on the front of the August issue of Lexington Family. The children are posing with Fayette County's new school superintendent in the free parenting magazine.
Kellen, 8, learned in June that she was one of eight children selected for future covers.
She is the daughter of Mykol Hamilton of Danville.
KET program will answer questions about non-game animals
Another KET program, "Kentucky Afield," will appeal to lovers of the outdoors, even those whose only outdoors is the backyard.
At 8 p.m. Aug. 14 on KET1, the "Summer Call-In" will take questions about the state's non-game animals.
Show host Tim Farmer will be joined by a panel of experts to answer questions that producers expect to be wide-ranging, covering such topics as fighting with mosquitoes, attracting hummingbirds, the black bear population and identifying snakes.
So, if you have had a vexing question about Kentucky wildlife, especially that which wanders in your backyard uninvited or that you would like to attract to your backyard, be ready to place the call.
