    1. Our Commonwealth had newspaper publisher Tom Gish 82 years. The Mountain Eagle publisher in Whitesburg who died last week was a hero and beacon of straight-forward, honest journalism. Fitting that his alma mater University of Kentucky created a Gish Award in 2004 to honor Tom and wife Pat. What higher praise for a person of words than recognition for courage, integrity and tenacity in journalism?
