Thanks to Relay for Life supporters

June 5, 2013 — The editor:

I want to thank everyone who was involved in helping make the Relay For Life event a success on June 1, 2013.

Tony Collier and his band, Ed and Carl Bocook, Rowan County Ramblers, Hung Jury, Southern Rail and Emily Stephens for the entertainment. Sonny Fankell for his awesome cooking and for donating the hamburgers, Donnie and Helen Quack Crum for letting us use The Chicken Coop grounds, and the Carter County Sheriff’s Office Relay for Life Team, without the support of my deputies and their families this night would not have been possible. Olive Hill, Grayson, and Norton Branch Fire Departments for the light plants, Carter City Fire Department and Thomas Thompson for filling the dunk tank and helping run it. Jennings of Morehead for donating the Porta Johns. Brad Green for donating all the ice. Lower Grassy Church of Christ for letting us use their tables and corn hole game. Linda Madden and Carl for letting us use their corn hole game. ECHS Girl's Softball team for the use of their snow cone machine.

All the people who donated baked goods to sale and everyone who donated things for the silent auction.

I really appreciate everyone of you that attended.

Casey Brammell

Carter County Sheriff

  • 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.

  • 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.
