It's disappointing weather news in Washington County, Kentucky again: warm, rainy, and winds from the south. You know what that means. The forecast predicts a change in winds, so tomorrow may finally bring the flight everyone has been waiting for. We hope so!

 

In the Classroom

When have you needed persistence, perseverance, or patience in your own life? (b-for-bonus) Think about what the team has been through during this migration. What do you think Joe means by his quotation? Click here to read the rest of Joe's words. Then write your response in your journal.
  • Thanks for Helpful People: See a WHAS11News video clip featuring Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Mayer, the couple who spotted and photographed #733 on their property Nov. 28 and alerted the Operation Migration folks! >>
