Lights Out at Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery in Observance of Earth Hour 2009
On Saturday, March 28th, 2009, some visitors to Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery (NFH) found themselves in the dark, all to raise awareness of the importance of energy conservation and the potential impacts of climate change to our fish and wildlife species.  As part of the global Earth Hour 2009 campaign, Wolf Creek NFH participated in the event by turning off all non-essential lights for one hour.  To help facilitate the educational value, signs were posted, and staff were available with fact sheets in hand to talk with visitors on the significance and overall impact of the event.

Jerry Gibson's final arrangements
Visitation for Jerry Gibson will be 11 a.m. Eastern time with funeral at 1 p.m. EDT on March 28th at the Marvin S. Hicks Funeral Home in Monticello.
He was known to publishers and editors across the state. He maintained he had installed the first computer pagination and layout equipment in this part of the country.
Jerry Gibson, 57, of Russell Springs was found dead in his apartment Wednesday night.
About ten years ago Gibson, with his friend David Davenport, founded the lakecumberland.com Web site which was known nationally as “the” Web site for information on the lake.
He was the man behind the keyboard at wildcatsradio.com, which is known to many as the definitive UK basketball Web site, and a moving force for years at the Star Theater.
From his youth he was a musician and radio personality in his native Wayne County.
Gibson worked many years at The Wayne County Outlook and was one of those responsible for starting The Pulaski Weekly newspaper in Somerset.
At one point, because of his computer expertise, Gibson was assisting about half of the state's newspapers with installing and maintaining computer systems.
Gibson remained the go-to-guy at the Times Journal and Russell County News for computer and Internet related issues right up to the day of his death.
Officials reported Thursday morning that foul play was not suspected in Gibson’s death. He was found by his friend, who summoned police to check on him after Gibson didn’t update game results from Wednesday night’s UK game, and would not come to the door.
