Southern Foundation presents check to Emergency Management Submitted by Jason Paul WICKLIFFE - The oldest ambulance that the Ballard County Ambulance Department owns has been remounted. A remount occurs when the box is taken off of its current chassis and placed onto a new chassis. This extends the life of the ambulance without having to spend thousands of dollars for a new ambulance. Judge Executive, Vicki Viniard commented, “The ambulance looks nice.” Art students make banner for state meeting Pictured from Left to Right are HAM Operator Wallace Shankle, HAM Operator Clyde Elrod, Jo Wilfong, Emergency Management Director Anita Bugg and Ballard County Judge Executive Vickie Viniard. On Monday, January 23rd, Jo Wilfong, a member of Southern Foundation, presented the Ballard County Office of Emergency Management a check in the amount of $2,961 for the purchase of HAM radios for the office. During the 2009 Ice Storm, because of outages, the only communication that the county had was by HAM radios and the volunteers that work them. They were needed to contact Frankfort and get assistance for our citizens as soon as possible. The old radios were falling apart and had been rewired several times just to keep them working. Ham radios are considered a hobby, and because of that the county could not get any State or Federal Grant money to purchase new ones. The Southern Foundation gratefully provided the funds to purchase new HAM radios. Ballard Memorial High and Ballard County Middle school art teacher Mitch Kimball and students in his classes produced this banner for display at this year’s Kentucky School Boards Association meeting, to be held Feb. 3-5 in Louisville. The conference theme is “College/Career Readiness: Kentucky’s Real 2012 Olympics,” linking the worldwide attention on the upcoming Olympic Games in London, England, and Kentucky schools’ push to move more high school graduates to enter college and/or the job market adequately prepared.
