  • Local officials see benefits from constables

    A bill that a northern Kentucky Republican filed would allow counties to abolish the constable position, and would allow cities to keep constables from trying to enforce the law within city limits.

    But locally, officials are less than enthusiastic. Taylor County Judge/Executive Eddie Rogers says constables still serve a purpose in Taylor County.

    “A lot of the constables work at the school, and I don’t think it’s my place or the court’s place to say that the school doesn’t need them,” Rogers said.

    “The situation they’re dealing with now is the weather,” said Young. “It’s cold, and they’re trying to paint the outside of the tank at the hospital. They have a number of coats they need to put on there to actually protect it properly.

  • Brothers serves prize pig

  • H & W to have new home

    Some eight months after a massive fire, H & W Sport Shop is moving again, this time to 120 E. Main St.

    Demolition is complete, and renovations are underway, and they should be ready to move into their new location in about a year, said H & W Sport Shop owner Shaun Hord said.

    “We’ve taken down probably the back third of it,” said Hord. “And we’re going to come back with a garage in the back part. That will be more efficient for deliveries and orders. And we’re renovating the inside of it.”
