    Matt Bevin will officially be the Republican gubernatorial candidate in November.

    James Comer conceded on Friday in a race that had Bevin and Comer separated by 83 votes. A recanvass did not change the fact that Bevin received more votes.

    Taylor County Clerk Mark Carney said the local recanvass was performed without incident in about 20 minutes; the numbers were the same as before.

    This outcome did not surprise him.

  • Valedictorians honored at high school graduations

    And in the end, it was William Cooper Hall, who goes by Cooper, who was named valedictorian, barely edging out salutatorian Kassie Miller.

    Hall had figured out almost a month prior to the official announcement that he and Miller would be the two battling it out for the top two spots in the Class of 2015 because they had taken the most weighted AP classes.
