A round-up of all things Clark County…

Sad news ahead, so you may want to scroll down instead to the next bullet point about the Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting.

Michael Brown, 626 Westmeade Drive, stated his Yorkshire Terrier was in the backyard on Jan. 11 at approximately 3:50 p.m. When Brown went back at approximately 4:20 p.m., the dog was discovered possibly shot, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Department.

The dog was taken to a veterinarian and it was discovered the dog was shot with a .22 caliber round. The dog passed away later that night. It is unknown who may have shot the dog.

That’s terrible! Who would shoot an innocent dog?

All dogs go to heaven, but I’m not so certain about the shooter’s chances.

Anyone with information about the incident should contact the Clark County Sheriff’s Department at (859) 744-4390.

Winchester-Clark County Chamber of Commerce will hold its annual meeting between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. Monday, Jan. 31 at the Clark Extension Office. Come enjoy a hot breakfast with your Chamber members and kick off 2022 right! You’ll meet the Chamber’s new officers and board members, hear a recap of the year’s budget and catch the Chamber’ vision for the year ahead.
The event is free and open to the public.

In other news, I was  invited to be the guest speaker at the Rotary Club of Winchester’s Friday meeting. Thanks for the invite. I talked about the Winchester Sun and what we can do for the community.

Other day, I got to have lunch with Craig Bridgewater, a hometown boy and longtime realtor. When my family and I get properly settled, I’m going to buy “real” house from Bridgewater, hopefully something near the Sun office and the College Park swimming pool.
Bridgewater and I ate at Bargains on Broad — excellent food! Crinkle fries! Amazing. New favorite place to eat.

In other matters, Kenny Book wanted it noted that Ekletc Alchemy is located on South Main Street and West Lexington Avenue, not at Court and South Main — Book was referencing something Harry Enoch wrote in one of his columns — Where are they now? — columns about local architecture and history. Like Book, Enoch’s columns are one of my favorite parts of the newspaper.

Book is/has been writing a treatise himself about local history that we have here at the Sun office. I think when I get a spare moment, I’m going to read the chapter about gas stations from the 1960s/70s. For those who don’t know or can’t remember, service stations use to be cool places to hang around. I can’t describe the smell of gasoline and engine repair, but I recall it with fondness.

Many places had Coke machines where you could get a glass bottle out, not some damned soulless drink inside a plastic bottle. Attendants then checked your oil and tire pressure, sometimes filled your tank, but that just depended on how it was and who was working.
Try getting that kind of service these days — not going to happen.

Anyway, please send any news tips or gossip to
