At the time, the 17-year-old Mason County High School student was lying in a hospital bed at Cincinnati Children&#39;s Hospital in critical condition. A little more than two months after the accident that landed Tull in critical condition, she is back home with her family and attending school full-time. In her family&#39;s eyes, that makes Chrissy Tully a miracle. &quot;She beat all the odds,&quot; said Tull&#39;s mother, Patricia Tull. &quot;She&#39;s pretty much back to normal. It&#39;s a miracle.&quot;</p><p> Mon, 14 Nov 2011 03:49:30 +0000 Misty Maynard, Ledger Independent 16173 at http://weku.fm Miraculous Recovery for Mason Co.

Also, the company, which employed approximately 40 employees during its peak employment in Maysville, has gradually been laying off employees, Weaver said.</p><p> Sun, 23 Oct 2011 23:07:05 +0000 Misty Maynard, Ledger Independent 14857 at http://weku.fm Seat Belt Safety Emphasized for Middle School Students http://weku.fm/post/seat-belt-safety-emphasized-middle-school-students <p><a href="http://www.maysville-online.com/news/local/article_b05953e6-f453-11e0-955e-001cc4c002e0.html">The information Steven Bowen</a>, program director for the Office of Highway Safety, shared with Mason County Middle School students about car accidents and seat belt safety was invaluable. However, his message was really driven home when he switched on a machine that simulated a roll-over accident with four dummies inside, two adult-sized dummies and two-child sized dummies. Those wearing seat belts stayed in the vehicle while the two unrestrained dummies were ejected - a scenario that made quite an impact with some students.

Despite the obvious need, the county lacks the recovery support necessary to help those battling addiction get their lives back, said David White, a recovering addict. Seven months ago, a group of concerned citizens began to meet to discuss the problem and brainstorm a solution. What the group decided was that in Lewis County, addicts need a chance for a New Beginning.

However, Ellis said it was only recently that hard proof of the existence of the pigs showed up in the form of photographs taken by Tollesboro resident Andrew Sauley.
