About 25 center members and staff are headed to Kentucky's capital this afternoon to rally for increased funding for nutritional programs at senior citizens centers statewide.

Dear Editor: In response to Jon Strunk's letter on Dec. 3, I find it intriguing that he would be so concerned with how bad Governor Fletcher will "screw up" Kentucky. Unlike our past governor, Mr. Fletcher has been able to keep his "screwing up" apparatus under control. It seems to me that Mr. Strunk would be more concerned about the mess in Frankfort that Mr. Fletcher is inheriting and the embarrassment Mr. Patton has caused our great state and the Democratic Party. As for the parking garage in Danville, it will take more than Ernie Fletcher's endorsement to solve that problem.
