I wish to acknowledge the incredible bravery of your citizen Sgt.Jacob Perkins who helped to save the lives of passengers on the tour bus from London Ontario Canada. Please know that his act of heroism is recognized by many Canadians like myself. His kindness and caring concern for the well being of the passengers as demonstrated by driving a woman and her daughter to hospital is also to be praised.
May God bless Jacob Perkins and his family and may God continue to bless our American friends.

Isn't it great when we have this wonderful compliment to our community when we have folks who get on here and talk about what a horrible town this is? Thats the second human-interest story from this wonderful little town. KY3 did a segment on a lady from the post office who checks on people as she delivers the mail. She too goes the extra mile. Wouldn't it be wonderful if it rubbed off on all of us and we started looking out for our fellow neighbors? What a difference it would make. I challenge each of us to look for the opportunity to go the extra mile for someone else.
