The family of Leroy Jessie would like to thank everyone for everything they did for him and his family. Thank you for everything: the prayers you prayed, the calls you made, the food you cooked and brought, the flowers you sent, the comfort you brought to his family, and the special time you spent with him and his family his last days on this earth. We know he is in a better place and watches over us each and every day. I thank God for that. He is gone, but will never be forgotten. A Daddy, Pap, husband and my Buttercup was laid to rest with the utmost respect and love. Everything was done exactly the way he would have wanted it, and we could not have done it without all of you. “Miss me, but let me go” is the phrase I hear every day when I think of him. Yet it was not easy to give him up, I am thankful that I was blessed to have gotten to have him in my life and I know I will see him again someday. A special thanks to Sparks Funeral Home, the special people at Ashland Community Hospice Center and Oakland Christian Church.
We love and miss you Pap!

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.
Legislators consider minimum wage needs
I commend these four legislators, Rep. Jill York, Rep. C.B. Embry, Rep. Dwight Butler, and Rep. Jim Stewart by voting yes on the Minimum Wage Bill.
Encouraging colon cancer screenings
March is National Colon Cancer Awareness Month and an opportunity to bring attention to potentially lifesaving actions people can take. This year, the American Cancer Society estimates 136,830 people will be diagnosed with colorectal cancer in the U.S.
Get involved with your local chamber
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.
Thanks for contributing to Operation Christmas Child
I’m writing to thank Grayson residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas.
Seeking ancestry information
I am searching for relatives from the Olive Hill and Grayson area in the 1800s and early 1900s.
