Why the Warren Thomas Museum Needs Your Help

Credit jacksonpurchasehistory.org

The church that beards Warren Thomas' name in Hickman, Kentucky, officially opened in 1869, and the first educational classes for African Americans began in its basement the next year. Fire destroyed the first building, but in 1898, another permanent building opened and it was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. The 115 year old church structure has suffered theft and other problems that must be fixed before visitors can experience the site again. Kate Lochte has more with Jeannette Dean, who chairs the Warren Thomas Historic Society that strives to preserve this memorial to African American leaders of the 19th Century in Hickman.

Participate in National Cancer Prevention Study 3

Murray Calloway County Hospital’s Mary Heff and Melissa Ross speak with Kate Lochte about the National Cancer Prevention Study-3, at Murray September 19 – 21. It's a landmark study and opportunity in Murray for anyone between the ages of  30 and 65 years old. They talk about the first two studies: the first from the 1950s, was a look at how smoking relates to cancer; the second, from the 80s, centered around nutrition guidelines for preventative methods like how sitting longer shortens longetivity. The third study will consist of doing a survey at home and then going to the Murray Calloway County Hospital. The goal is to find links among people across the nation to find out what causes cancer and what can be done to prevent cancer. See more about this study.
