Valet parking badly needed
One of the worst moves ever for King’s Daughters Medical Center was to stop valet parking!
I fully agree with the April 4 letter. Our Lady of Bellefonte Hospital still has free valet parking whereas KDMC charged for its service. I never once heard any complaints for having to pay.
The parking near KDMC is horrendous and feel sure many, including me, have a rough time walking the distance from wherever they park to their designated appointment.
Parking in the lot across from Med buildings A and B and walking to those buildings is tiring and exhausting for elderly patients with breathing problems, walking etc., and especially for those who live alone and have no choice but to drive themselves.
Another huge reason the valet parking is so badly needed is weather conditions. I have seen elderly individuals walking in cold, rain, snow and icy weather.
Surely, KDMC could eliminate some funds used for some non-essentials like costly pictures/prints hanging on every wall there. Yes, they are lovely but I think the parking should take priority.
Please search for someway to bring this service back to your hospital.

U.S. 23 cleanupto be May 11
Spring means warmer temperatures and blooming flowers. Spring also signifies “spring cleaning,” as in the Ashland Alliance U. S. 23 Cleanup. This year’s sweep of trash along the Country Music Highway from South Shore to Catlettsburg is set for Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to noon.
Volunteers are needed to pick up debris and trash along the 50-mile stretch of roadway in Boyd and Greenup counties during the annual clean-up.
We are trying to educate our youth as well as our entire region on the issue of keeping our area clean for this generation as well as future generations. The individuals who work this cleanup see firsthand what happens when people litter. Our hope is they go back to their families, schools and jobs and educate people on not littering.
For more information on how to volunteer your business, church or civic group, call Missy McCalvin, Boyd County volunteer coordinator, or Paula Mayo, Greenup County volunteer coordinator, at (606) 324-5111 or email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
