A scandal is Coach Sandusky. A scandal is a government official getting busted buying drugs and strippers with taxpayer money. A scandal is charity organizations taking money instead of doing what they said they were going to do.
A kid dying from an unknown heart condition that was exacerbated by heat and stress is NOT a scandal.
Have some respect and don't bring it up again.
Maybe the scandel was the cover-up

The answer to your question is, YES, I was old enough to read the Gleaner in 1979.

Although it sounds like this might come as a big surprise to you, not all Topix readers are teenie-boppers, and many people can and do read at a higher level than comic books and the back of cereal boxes at an earlier age than others.

To address your, "recall", remark, I used the phrase, "As I recall", because I've not been gifted with total recall and can't quote verbatim every word and every specific detail of everything I've read, heard, or saw throughout my entire lifetime.

Now, if I may, I'd like to ask you a question :

Why would the year 1979 have any relevance at all to this particular subject ?

The reason I ask is because it was not until the mid-summer of 1980 when Mr. Sights and the Sight's family hosted the big $xxx a plate "Meet and Greet" fund raiser dinner for the Democratic Party that President Carter attended. During Carter's stay here, Henderson County was literally crawling with big name reporters from all the major newspaper and television networks and SS agents wearing dark glasses and whispering into their shirt cuff's.

So, obviously, there were no negative issues well into 1980 otherwise, there's no way that any sitting President, nor any major political party, political office holder, or potential candidate, would willingly jeopardize their reputations and chance for election/reelection by publicly associating at such a high profile event hosted by anyone who was currently undergoing criminal investigation or indictment.

It was a few years later on into the mid-80's, when Mr. Sights stepped down from his position at the bank.

http://chronicle.augusta.com/stories/2000/02/...

" ... The dirty-as-hip look has paid off big time for a Henderson, Ky., company since 1987. That was the year that Bart Sights graduated from Centre College in Danville, Ky., and needed a job. And his father, Dale Sights, had just left his job at a Henderson bank. Dale Sights heard that a hot new look in jeans, called "stone-washed," was the coming thing. The family owned an industrial laundry that Bart Sights' grandfather had co-founded in 1960 ... "

Yes, it was illegal, but it was only one child. The owner was trying to see if the medication would help the more troubled child. I was very wrong, but not as big a scandle as some people thought.

Knew it was during Carters term that this happen. So I guessed 79 I'm not old enough to "recall" it from having read the Gleaner. Hope that satisfies you for an answer. That doesn't take away from the fact that yes indeed it did happen. He was probably shitting bricks (literally) at Memphis airport security.

Never said it didn't happen at all. I'm saying it didn't happen in 1979 and for that matter not 1980 either.

My question was why the year 1979 had any relevancy to the specific subject of this post because Mr. Sight's problems with the law hadn't occured yet and didn't come out until after President Carter had left office and into Reagan's Presidency.

President Carter's first and only term ended in late Jan. of 1981 when Ronald Reagan then took office and served two terms as President from Jan. 1981 - Jan. 1989.

The link and copy and paste at the bottom of the first post states that Dale Sights had just left his job at a Henderson bank in 1987.

The link and copy and paste in the second post merely shows everything was still going along smooth and business as usual between Pres. Carter, the Democratic Party, and Mr. Sights in early Jan. 1980.
Apparently everything was still going well for Mr. Sights in mid - July of 1980 when the Democratic Party fund raiser was hosted by him, otherwise it never would have taken place.

You Do the Math... SMDH

Quite possibly you don't know the WHOLE story. Your chapter of the book Was later years of scandal my chapter being his early years. Like I said I bet he was "SHITTING BRICKS" at the Memphis airport. Are we talking about the same scandal ?

Apparently not.

No matter though. Mr. Sights has been successful at turning his life around and is involved in doing a lot of good things helping others in need that he really doesn't have to if he didn't want to.
After all, he's got be getting real close to 70 years old by now.

I know for a 100% fact that it was more than one child. I could even post the names of the children....but I won't.

I call his " giving to the community" as his way of trying to make inner peace with hisself for "dirtying up" the community. Just my opinion.... I know we all have them.

What about the scandel when Mr. Sights got caught letting his "girlfriends" stay in houses that the bank had foreclosed on? That happened back in the early 80's too. That's how he lost his job at Ohio Valley Bank. Now he's got all his "girlfriends" in one location----The WARM Center.
