Murray State University's School of Nursing and Health Professions and the Kentucky Nurses Association are setting up a scholarship to honor a victim of the Marshall County High School shooting. 

Jeanna Glisson

Jeanna Glisson has two lives: her life before August 20th, 2007, and her life after.

That day is so vivid, Glisson can still hear the sounds of her son’s feet coming down the stairs.

“I remember Derek when he got up that morning, he was on the phone talking to my dad. He was excited,” Glisson said.



The official Labor Day driving period begins at 6 p.m. Friday and traffic along Kentucky's interstates is sure to pick up.  A declining fatality rate does not diminish concerns associated with excessive speed on the state's highways.

The number of people killed on Kentucky roadways has declined in recent years.   Still, with 638 fatalities in 2013, law enforcement officials would like to see more days of what they refer to as "zero days." That's a day when no one dies on Kentucky highways.
