Under Construction ... bear with us
In June 2 Issue

As one might expect, following the sudden passing of our publisher, David Davenport, last week and Memorial Day on Monday, our editorial page is currently under construction as we decide what way to take this space, which was long filled by “From My Window ... by I.C. Toowell.”

We do want to take this opportunity to congratulate Mayor DeHart, city council and the city of Russell Springs and the Downtown Revitalization Committee and President Larry Skaggs as well as the many volunteers who helped make this year’s Springfest a success.

Friday night and Saturday were fun-filled and family friendly and we commend all the hard work that went into putting this event together.

As Larry said when interviewed for the story it took a total team effort and we recognize that and applaud all those who had a part in it. The coming together of a community is one of those precious things we take for granted and hope the city will continue with their spring and fall festivals for many years to come.

Also on Friday night, the Russell County High School class of 2011 walked across the stage, received their diplomas and then stepped out into the real world.

After covering many high school sporting and other events, we came to know many of the class of 2011 and have no doubts there will be many successes for the class in their future endeavors.

Best of luck in the future, graduates! We would be remiss if we did not take a moment to thank the many administrators, faculty and staff that dedicate so much time to our children’s education. Without these fine individuals many would be left in the dark with no direction. With their guding hands helping the educational process, the Russell County School District continues to be successful in th classroom.

And, in mentioning RCHS, we would like to congratulate the Laker baseball team, coached by David Rexroat, and the Lady Laker softball team, coached by Stephanie McGowan.

The baseball team won the 16th district title last week while the softball team finished the season as district runners-up. Both team advanced to regional play and we congratulate them on that. A big congrats also goes out to Coach Keith Ellis’ Laker Track and Field Team as they had many athletes perform well in both regional and state meets.

Finally, the Russell County Jaycees have been hard at work preparing the fairgrounds for the 116th Jaycees Fair, which begins on June 4 and runs through June 11.

With the new grandstand in place that will seat around 2,300 we anticipate this will be one of the most successful fairs in recent memory.

We look forward to working with the Jaycees and covering the fair and ask everyone to attend the fair daily as there are events for everyone. For more on the fair see the front page story on the big event or the ad on page A3.

See you there!
