  • Library an aid in down economy

    Freddie Wohner understands as well as anyone that the economy is down.

    "I've now been out longer without a job than any time in my life, and I've been working since I was 19," he said.

    Wohner, 42, is hardly alone.

    In March, the national unemployment rate was 9 percent and Kentucky's unemployment rate was 10.3 percent, according to Workforce Kentucky. (Those figures are not seasonally adjusted.)

    The most recent data for Marion County is from February, when the county's unemployment rate was 12.8 percent.

  • Bits and pieces

    A few thoughts from the past week:

    As if we needed another reminder that life doesn't always go according to our plans, we now have swine flu in the news.

    In recent years, we've dealt with mad cow and bird flu, and we've previously dealt with chicken and cow poxes.

    Maybe pigs were just late getting in on the act.

    - State and national health officials are urging people to be cautious with regard to swine flu.
