Shoes. Clothing. School supplies. Even a toy or two. After several years' absence, the local Kentucky State Police "Shop with a Trooper" program is back. And we know of at least seven kids who are happy about that.
On Thursday evening, about a dozen troopers hit Wal-Mart to shop with seven kids from Taylor, Green, Casey, Marion and Washington counties. It's part of an outreach program that not only helps kids meet some basic needs, but also shines a positive light on law enforcement.
