Words of thanks

The Independent

ASHLAND — I want to take a moment to recognize the Boyd County Road Department and itsr supervisors. 

I have driven our county roads since 1969 and never have they been take care of like they have in the past several years.  They face bad weather, cold conditions and even late night working hours to have the roads clear for school and work traffic..

I say “thank you” and “God bless” to them at all times, on and off the job.

 Tara L. Howell, King's Daughters  Medical Center Facilities Assistant


I’m writing to let a few people know that their behind-the-scenes actions scenes have not been overlooked. When a funeral occurs in Greenup County, there are a couple groups of people that for the most part go unnoticed. I’m speaking of the folks of our local law enforcement and our road departments.

Both provide a valuable resource to families that have lost loved ones.

From funeral escorts to making sure that the roads we travel in inclement weather are passable, their services have gone on for so long that we take for them for granted and forget that not every place has the services we have here at home.

I thank  the men and women who often go unnoticed whgile working to make that day for the grieving family a little more bearable.

Neil Wright, Wright’s Funeral Home, Greenup
