Update Friday Afternoon (6/9): Patience Renzulli is still first in Kentucky and now ranks 9th in the nation.

Original story:

A 63-year-old Paducah nurse is leading the commonwealth in an effort to raise money for children’s cancer research through cycling.


  A Paducah woman is currently celebrating an award from the Westminster Kennel Club in New York.

Author and dog trainer Patience Renzulli attended the world’s most famous dog show, where her 7-year-old whippet Swede William took home the Best of Opposite Sex award in his breed – essentially a runner-up placement. That was the end of the line for the whippet, though, as only the Best of Breed winner moves on in the competition.
