Correction on AA Hwy. accident In the May 31 issue of The Falmouth Outlook in the article about the AA Hwy. accident. The newspaper listed that Laura Heger of Brooksville was in the pick up truck. That is incorrect. Laura Heger was the owner of the pick up truck that was stolen, but she was not in the truck. There was only one passenger, Jessica Ray of Mt. Olivet. 911 TELECOMMUNICATOR BONNIE BLOOMFIELD Fiscal Court honors Emergency Medical Technician Relay For Life Trail Ride donation surpasses goal The Sixth Annual Relay For Life Trail Ride was a huge success. One hundred forty-four registered riders and the sale of event t-shirts surpassed the $2,000 goal set for this year’s Relay For Life.The organizers, past event participants, and new riders thoroughly enjoyed the event and the opportunity to show their support to raise money for cancer research. “Everybody is touched by cancer.

The Relay For Life Trail Ride is just one way to celebrate the lives of survivors, provide hope for those in treatment and to remember those we have lost,” reflects Mike Simpson, one of the event organizers. The Falmouth Police Department who each year helped control traffic and escort all the riders safely through town.The trail riders expressed appreciation to all the landowners who have opened their gates and allowed the ride to cross their property these past six years. Special thanks to landowners Edwin and Ruth Hall, DonMark, Inc., Stacey Wells, Casson Brothers and Phylis Crawford Radcliff Company. Because of these landowners’ generosity, the ride is now so popular and has grown so much in participation that it is time to expand. The organizers are delighted to announce that the 2012 ride will be hosted by Ram-Z’s River Side Stables. The Relay For Life Trail Ride participants share the goal of someday finding a cure for cancer and they are already making plans for next year’s event. 911 Telecommunicator recognized By Roger McKinney, Reporter Magistrate Alan Whaley at the request of the Kenton Fire Protection District, which serves a portion of Pendleton County, read a Proclamation of Appreciation to EMT volunteer Rose Booth.

That is evident if you look at the horse riders that participate in the Relay For Life Horse Ride and looking at the many youth and adults that participate in the horse shows in this county and those traveling to other horse events. Yes, a part of the old west still exists right here in our county. One such romantic event recently happened at the Pendleton County Sheriff’s Office Horse Show held on Sunday, May 29 at the Pendleton County Fairgrounds. Olivia Gosney, 22 of Butler entered the arena with Kyleigh Cline to help her give away some free puppies her dog had. As Olivia turned to the crowd and ask if anyone would like to take one of the puppies home, out of the blue entering the ring was Kyleigh’s dad Chip Cline on his horse. He rode up to where Olivia was and as she looks at him he gets down off his horse, goes down on one knee and proposes to Olivia in front of the spectators. For a moment Chip and Olivia were alone as she said yes to Chip’s proposal and he placed an engagement ring on her finger. The spectators yelled and clapped their hands. Photo by Trish Armour.
