Governors considered abolishing the county in the late 1800s during a vicious feud, and again three decades later, when murders and violence created "a climate of fear in Clay County throughout the 1930s," local historian Charles House wrote in his 2007 book Blame it on Salt .

I agree, painting things and plays are not the answer. I hope there is true interest in helping my hometown. However, I hear most of the agenda for the group is patting themselves on the back. I saw a picture of the ppl in a play at some building and didn't recognize many from the county? Hope I am misinformed and wrong.

The "Stay In Clay" community group is actively engaged citizens and are working to improve our community. If you can't find something positive to remark about, please just keep your negatives to yourself. The SIC group is creating a positive agenda and making good things happen that are long overdue.

The SIC group is not going to create a positive image by telling people who disagree with them to shut up. I dont know anything about the group or its agenda but I do know this, if youu dont agree with peoples right to voice their opinion then you can take your SIC and stick it up your A.S.S. I bellieve most of the folks in and out of the area will agree with that.

Here is a real gem. I wonder why when videos are done about the county they travel and film the worse places in the county to make it look much worse than it is. This looks to be Chop Bottom in this video. Why not show the new buildings in town or the new EKU campus or those excellent murals on those up scale buildings in town. Why is it always places like in this video?

Instead of hiding on here crying and pitching a bich, why don't you go to a stay in clay meeting and voice your opinion there? It's open to the public and their always happy to hear new ideas on how to improve the county.
