Latest print edition of Midway Messenger is out

The latest print edition of the Midway Messenger has been published and is being distributed at various locations in the Midway area this week.

The Messenger publishes a print edition twice a year, loosely following the semester schedules of students at the University of Kentucky, who cover the Midway area for the Messenger as part of courses in community journalism.

The Winter/Spring edition includes several stories from the fall class, including Jamilyn Hall's feature on the Weisenberger Mill and its 150th anniversary; Kayla Loy's story on Henry Wombles and his novel; staff reports on city elections and finances; and stories on community events such as the Midway Fall Festival, the Iron Horse marathon and chili cook-offs.

Stories from the current semester include a pair by Tiffany Broughton, on meetings of Midway Renaissance and the Midway Business Association; a a feature by Molly Elifritz on Ouita Michel and Holly Hill Inn's "Around the World in 80 Days" international menu series. A video version of that story will appear online. For a PDF of the print edition, click here.
