Spring is here, which means summer is just around the corner! For pool owners, that’s some exciting news, but for those of us without access to a pool, sometimes summer can be a little dull…and super hot. But I have good news, Frankfort-ians! An aquatic center is in the works…and it looks awesome.
We are excited to announce an event that is close to our hearts – the second annual Givin, Grillin & Chillin, Billy “Yardman” Noblitt Blood Drive.
On January 21, 2014, Billy Noblitt passed away suddenly. It was due to the compassionate efforts of those who had donated blood that he was able to spend a few more hours with his family. In his honor, his family began a new tradition by starting an annual blood drive so that many more in our community could receive this life saving gift. Did you know that just one pint of blood could save up to three lives?
On Friday, May 15, we will be doing it up Yardman style from 9am-10pm in Downtown Frankfort at Old Capital Lawn. This event is open to the entire community and we hope that you will feel encouraged to come, with your family and friends, and support this worthy cause. All donors will be provided lunch and a t-shirt.
Froggy 104.9 will be broadcasting live and there will be live music on Capital Lawn from 2-10. Artie Dean Harris will be the main act and will take the stage at 6pm. There will also be fun activities for the kids.
Are you a business interested in helping save lives by being a sponsor?
We are still looking for local businesses to partner with us for this event. All businesses will have the option to set up a booth promoting their business at our event. Sponsor names and logos will also be present on our numerous banners, all t-shirts and promoted via our radio, flyer and newspaper advertising.
If you are interested in being a sponsor, please contact Belinda Bay at email@example.com.

Last week, a state lawmaker withdrew one of his own bills after a harsh response from critics.
The foreclosure bill, House Bill 407, which was backed by Jeff Greer, the House Banking and Insurance Chairman, would have permitted a quicker and more direct mortgage foreclosure process.
However, the opponents of the bill say that it threatened to favor banks over home owners. They expounded by saying that the bill would force home owners to deal with obstacles such as no longer being able to regain their home by paying the amount owed within six months. Home owners would also be forced to file lawsuits – at their expense – in order to halt a wrongful foreclosure.
“My intention was to give some relief to the banking industry, but I had no intention to hurt anybody,” said Greer, who went on to explain that the overall issue with the bill was the lack of time he had to present it adequately. “That’s what you get for trying to rush a bill through.”
Last year, Greer received a minimum of $9,400 from Kentucky’s banking industry, from both individuals and political action committees, in political donations.
General counsel for the Kentucky Bankers Association, Debra Stamper, said the bill was designed to expedite the foreclosure in such cases where everyone – borrower included – wanted things to be resolved quickly.
Stamper continued to say that there was a lot of misinformation about the bill and that there was a lack of time to, “talk it out with everyone.”
Stamper also said that the association has plans to pursue a similar bill in 2016.
