Heritage Trail Ride successful

Sept. 18, 2013 — The editor:

An enormous “thank-you” to all the folks who helped make our Heritage Trail Ride a great success – we had around 100 riders and are so very happy you came– and to those who supported and contributed to making the Depot into a trailhead/ tourist center under our Flex-E grant project this year. Thinking of the way that people just stepped in, generously giving of time & talent, brings me to tears!

Giving gratitude is a daunting task. Someone is always left out! But here goes. . .

D. & Debbie Rayburn, Roger Hanshaw, Stephanie Hicks, Nellie Jordan, Angie Messer Fultz, Joey Back, West Carter Y-Club, West Carter Beta Club, Linda Lowe, Sherry Campbell & Speedway, the Olive Hill Times, the Eastern Kentucky Voice, WUGO, Madison Harris, Tiffany Porter, New Mercies, Mallory Aronhalt, Pam Hanshaw, NRA, Wes Hedge, Brent Wilburn, Cory & Angela Phelps, Eastern Hills Saddle Club, Bro. Jim Muncy. . . and the Tyler’s delivery driver who was able to chase down the group during the ride!

And the event simply would not have been possible without our sponsors: Smith’s Hardware, the Olive Hill Times, Scenic Hills Realty, Three Pine Stables, Stephens’ Farm Supply, Rep. Jill York, Sen. Robin Webb, First National Bank, Rock’s Auto Sales, Commercial Bank, Walker’s Family Restaurant, Carter Co.

  • Be careful of those you trust

    I would like to respond in answer to Charles Wallace's pitiful letter to avenge himself against the “stuff told” by the Health Department in the Eastern KY Voice this Friday. Folks, it’s simple. He has lost two major battles against us “girls” here at the Health Department and we were in anticipation of the third battle starting.

  • Olive Hill Health Department: Raising questions

    During the last health department meeting, information was provided to employees regarding the closing of the Olive Hill Health Department branch, which I had previously asked about. They informed me they did not have the revenue to keep it open. If the health department was not closed in Olive Hill it would be hundreds of thousands of dollars in the red.

    Are you involved with your local chamber of commerce? Chambers of Commerce are a great way to make business contacts, and even friends.

  • Alcohol sales would hurt Olive Hill

    I am 64 years old and I have lived in the city limits of Olive Hill my entire life. I have seen Olive Hill when it was prosperous and I have seen it when it was not so prosperous.

  • Against liquor sales in Olive Hill

    Along the roadways of our little town, we see signs urging us to vote YES for legal liquor sales in Olive Hill. Sadly, we see no signs urging us to vote NO!

  • In appreciation of Pastor Barrell

    Some members of the Lower Grassy Church of Christ, in my opinion, should hang their heads in shame. On February 23, 2014 a wonderful man of God and their Pastor Larry Barrell was dismissed from preaching.
