  • Ethington has a family too

    This side of the story is nothing short of a tragedy. But every story has two sides. David Ethington had family in the court room too that also cried. He also has two sons that are still crying and a daughter too young to know what is going on. Our family has been life long friends of Dago and this has forever changed our lives as well. While I don’t agree with the choices that the two of them made on that night, they were just that, their choices. There isn’t a day that goes by that David doesn’t think about the choice he made.

  • Response to Bob Cook’s accusations relating to building permits

    As your Judge-Executive, one issue that I have wrestled with is at what point do you publicly respond to mistruths, false accusations, rumors, etc. If you responded to every one of them you would spend all of your time writing letters to the paper and none of your time making sure the business of the county was getting done. Due to the practicality of writing responses it has been my policy to let most of it go, but occasionally you have something that gets blown so out of proportion that you have no choice but to sit down and try to address it the best you can.

  • Warriors play best game of season in 15-13 loss to Berea
