I really appreciate the positive sentiment behind this post with a premise to recognize local people who are and do make a difference. Many of those special persons who are heroes or leaders don't ask for acclaim nor fame only that they serve and lead and try to make our community better fr everyone.

With that being said, I would simply suggest that our first and foremost our military and national guard service men and women are all worthy and deserve recognition; secondly, I suggest that many others exist to make our community better such as teachers and support staff, various business leaders who seek to grow their companies and provide jobs, the many devoted clergy that work to support families with faith based initiatives, the many healthcare and mental health providers who help us have healthier and better quality of life, and yes even some elected officials.

The most important heroes in the community are the working moms, the blue collar working dads, the grandparents and others who are caregivers and persistent even during difficult times and challenges to provide a warm, loving, and faithful home environment in which to raise children.

We have many good people, and yes, we only hear of and learn about the bad things in our community but we have much to be thankful for. May God continue to bless you and your family everyday!

Together we can always do better, bescause United we stand stronger and divided we fall much easier!! Merry Christmas!!

All the women and men in Clay Co. that go to work and hold down a job and raise their families. We hear too much about the ones that don't.

Richie showed his true colors didn't he. Just like he was in High School. Better than everyone else, everything should be given to him because he bounced a basketball around. horse*hit Had it made, never worked day in his life and still screwed that up. He aint no hero, should be the poster child for "how to screw it up good".

i support the unsung hero who sneaks a bag of new toys, coats, and maybe a big ham, and ties it to a porch step out of the doggies reach; where poor hardworking people live.

Back when i was growing up heros to us was our parenst. They worked hard, kept us fed, clothes us, tended to our sickness, set examples that we today are so grateful for. Sure heros come in many forms but nothing can come close to the warmth of the love of caring, sacraficing,being there in the form of wonderful parents. Its sad to see so many looking for heros in complete strangers, athelets, politicans, performers or any other hero type. If you are blessed to be borned with honest, hardworking and caring parents then who needs heros you already got them.

I agree. But remember that it gives people pride to know that someone that came from such a small community, you went to school with, and knew him made himself into something that might be remembered 100's of years from now. Its basically what you'd call Public Pride. Nothing can match your folks but its nice to see someone make a name for themselves from your community.

That makes no sense whatsoever! Just about everyone who gets some type of famous name of sorts always leaves their hometowns. Hell even George Clooney is from Lexington and he left so does that fall into the same category?

Jimmy smith is a hero not many people can beat people's brains out. Work 4 or 5 jobs. He don't care if he says your going to jail and you say no your beat to death. Believe me get got me one night he isn't no pushover. The best thing about him he is a god fearing man and he brings god with him everywhere he goes he has never lost a fight
