Officials at Jennie Stuart Medical Center are looking to bring on more volunteers to help with the hospital’s day to day needs.
Jennie Stuart Director of Marketing and Community Relations Jim Goss says the hospital already has a good force of volunteers—they just need more to serve in a variety of capacities.
Goss says an open house will be held at Jennie Stuart November 13th for anyone interested in learning more about becoming a volunteer.

A single-vehicle wreck on Sanderson Drive yesterday afternoon sent the driver to Jennie Stuart Medical Center.
The incident happened around 4:20, according to the report, which says 20-year old Aaron Hutchison of Hopkinsville was southbound on Sanderson. Hopkinsville Police say he was traveling too fast for conditions and veered off the roadway into a mailbox, then into a telephone pole, before hitting a rock and coming to rest against a tree at 906 Sanderson.
Hutchison was treated at the scene by ambulance personnel and later went to Jennie Stuart by private vehicle.
Voting got off to a fairly uneventful start in Christian County this morning, with only a couple of minor problems reported.
County Clerk Mike Kem said those issues were rectified quickly after the polls opened at 6am.
There was a line of about five people formed at the Courthouse precinct by around 6:15 this morning, but it was moving quickly. Kem says there have been no reports of long waits to vote so far in Christian County.
Election personnel were at the courthouse early and will remain there until tonight to monitor and address any problems or questions that may come up during voting.
One person was injured in a single-vehicle wreck on Allensville Street near Elkton Monday evening.
The incident happened near the Allensville Road intersection around 6:15. A vehicle was overturned on its top, though all three occupants were able to get out.
One person was taken by ambulance to Jennie Stuart Medical Center for treatment of apparent non-life-threatening injuries. The Todd County Sheriff’s Office worked the wreck and we’ll have more details as they become available.
A presidential election usually means a big turnout of voters and that’s expected to be the case Tuesday in Christian County.
Christian County Elections Coordinator Melinda Humphries says the County Clerk’s Office is expecting a lot of ballots to be cast by the time the polls close at 6pm.
Ms. Humphries is encouraging voters to be patient and to be aware there could be lines at their precinct.
The election phone number at the Christian County Clerk’s office is 887-4107 and the office will be closed for all non-election business.
There are some changes in precinct locations from the last General Election. Those who have voted at Christian County Middle School in the past should vote in the new Christian County Middle School building across the street this time around.
Voters who normally cast a ballot at North Drive Middle School will instead vote at Christian County Middle School and those who usually vote at Faith Lutheran Church will now do so at Indian Hills Elementary School.
Those who voted in the past at the Public Library will now vote at Pennyrile Electric and voters who have gone to First Christian Church to vote before will now go to St. Johns United Methodist Church instead. One of the more subtle changes is a move next door from Hopkinsville High School to Hopkinsville Middle for voters in that precinct.
Polls will be open from 6am until 6pm across Kentucky and we will begin our election coverage on all of the WHOP Family of Stations at 6pm.
