Local Trooper honored in statewide ceremony

Kentucky State Trooper Cody Kromer, of Providence, was recognized last Wednesday at the 2015 Governor’s Impaired Driving Enforcement Awards ceremony held at the Louisville Marriott East.

Trooper Kromer, from Kentucky State Police (KSP) Post 2 Madisonville, was recognized at this ceremony for his outstanding job performance to remove impaired drivers from our roads. Between October 1, 2014 and September 30, 2015, Kromer was responsible for arresting 66 impaired drivers.

In all, 142 law enforcement officers from 117 agencies across the Commonwealth were honored.

Christmas Angel program continues as new organization

Employees at Cash Express sort Hats and Gloves.
Christmastime provides more opportunities for giving than any other time of year. So many, in fact, that it’s easy to miss the really important ones in the face of such a daunting list.
That’s why groups like Webster County Caring for Neighbors exist. The organization is new, but the cause they are working toward this December isn’t.

Christmas Angel provides the opportunity for people to “adopt” children in the community who are in need of clothes.

The program was under the auspices of Webster County Public Schools until this year. For many Christmases, the Family Resource Center in Dixon headed up the effort. But when the office lost funding for supplemental staff, the program was in jeopardy.
That’s when a number of private citizens stepped in.
