This Just Happened, a weekly roundup (Wini Yunker edition)

Wini Yunker Rappelling the Big Blue Building in
Lexington, Ky.
Sometimes people deserve credit and Wini Yunker fits the bill. Earlier this month, she rappelled down the Lexington Financial Center in downtown Lexington to the cheering crowds. At 79, she was the oldest accomplish the feat. And all with her trademark smile.

From this week on the Kaintuckeean, there was an internet outage at home so there were no posts Monday-Wednesday. Sorry!
