roy was born in Cincy and was raised mainly in Portsmouth. Copas was from Blue Creek (Adams County) and moved to Cincy. Johnny Statecheck was from Greenfield.

Pud you are desperate and really have to stretch it to make them folks from around ironton.

Before you get started Rosemary Clooney was from Maysville KY.

These posts are seen on more than one forum. I picked this up on the Fayetteville forum and was just giving a shout out to those with (albeit loose) ties to Brown County. I left Rosemary out because I do not consider her a legitimate talent as most of her success came from her early performances on the proverbial casting couch.(Not unlike Doris Day and Theda Bera.) Now hold your tongue and say "Roy Roger's lasso".

Actually Rosemary's later day day 3 girls 3 was seen as quite the show. You only got Bobby Bare as Bobby Bare Jr. isn't from Ironton either. She also got an emmy nomination in 1995. Not too bad. But anyways, she was from Maysville Ky.

Get your facts right before you brag. It makes you look stupid when you don't.

Today Ironton, has uneducated oafs, dope fiends, drunkards, welfare losers, lazy fat asses, too many single parents and other assorted rift raft.

Now that ain't much to brag on. But maybe the folks still think Ironton is the greatest (lol) and will brag.

I wouldn't want Rosemary after Bing Crosby had her, regardless of her accomplishments. BTW, I'm betting her nephew is a closet gay. Time will out. The good thing about Ironton is that it's close to Portsmouth which has an honest to God Tim Horton's.
