May 1, 2013 — The editor:

    The West Carter Middle School seventh grade Beta Club would like to thank all participants and volunteers that came out in support of Jordan Holbrook at our Journey for Jordan 5k on April 13. With the help of our 150 participants and our sponsors we were able to raise $2,800 to give to Jordan and his family. We would also like to thank the City of Olive Hill, Mayor Fankell, and all of the emergency personnel who helped to make our 5k a successful and safe event.

    Finally, we would like to thank all of our personal and business sponsors including: First Christian Church, Stor All, Commercial Bank, Elam’s Upholstery, Globe Funeral Chapel, Heavenly Treasures, Kevin Jordan, D.M.D., Malone Funeral Home, Oney-Henderson Funeral Home, Racer Food Mart, Trinity Salon, Upper Tygart Mini Mart, and First National Bank. Thanks again to everyone for making our event successful and we look forward to seeing you all again next year.

  • 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.
