First Annual South Central KY Sheriffs Charity Ride

By Sheriff Josh Brockman
Adair County Sheriff's Office

On Saturday, August 28, 2021 we held the First Annual South Central Kentucky Sheriff's Charity Ride. The Sheriffs from Adair, Russell, Casey, Clinton, and Cumberland Counties organized the event. By 9amCT, we had over 100 motorcycles and riders from all 5 counties show up to support the event.

We were able to raise $5,000.00 for various charities in each county. Each sheriff donated $200.00 to the KY Boys and Girls Sheriff Ranch.

In addition each Sheriff received $800.00 to donate to a charity from their community. The Adair County donation went to J.O.Y. Ministries.

"There are so many great charities in Adair County, we are truly a blessed county. The residents in Adair have always been generous in their giving. J.O.Y. Ministries has been so helpful to our community. Many of the things they do go unnoticed but for law enforcement officers and other emergency workers we see first hand the things they do, especially helping us with situations we get into with families who need help. We look forward to next years ride and pray that it continues to grow." --Sheriff Josh Brockman

KY students invited to enter environmental health poster contest

Open to ages kindergarten through eighth grade; may submit artwork through Oct. 4; cash prizes

By Susan Dunlap

Frankfort, KY - The Department for Public Health invites all Kentuckians representing kindergarten through eighth grade to participate in the annual Environmental Health Poster Contest. The contest is open to public school, parochial, and home-schooled students and members of sponsoring organizations, such as scout troops and 4-H clubs, in this grade range. Young Kentuckians with an enthusiasm for environmental health and a passion for creative expression can submit their artwork through Oct. 4.

The contest is sponsored by the Kentucky Environmental Public Health Tracking Network and Kentucky Population Health Institute, and it offers cash prizes. Winners' work will be displayed at the annual Children's Environmental Health Summit on Oct. 14 - in observance of National Children's Environmental Health Day - at the Center for Rural Development in Somerset. This free event, which will be offered virtually due to the global pandemic, will provide an overview of issues impacting children's health in Kentucky and will spotlight ongoing efforts to protect our commonwealth's young people.

The theme of this year's poster contest is health equity in Kentucky. Submissions should reflect artists' recognition of health equity as a means of making sure everyone has the opportunity to be as healthy as possible. Some circumstances that determine the health of an individual or a community include access to healthy foods; living in a safe neighborhood; quality housing; quality education; the ability to see a health care professional when needed, and a safe area to play. It is also important to have friends, family and neighbors to help create this community.

First, second and third-place prizes will be awarded: Visa gift cards of $100, $75 and $50, respectively. A winner from each grade level will also be selected and awarded a $25 gift card. All participants will receive a certificate.
