A Manchester girl saved a dog’s life last week.
Kimmy Deaton, 23, of Manchester, is an animal fan. She can often be seen walking her own dog, Sandy, around town. Rain or shine, she and Sandy walk every day.
It was an average day for Deaton on Friday, October 14, when she heard a commotion outside her house.
“It sounded similar to a dogfight. I got in my car and drove around the neighborhood, but I never could find the source,” says Deaton. Deaton says she heard more noise later that day, and went outside to see what the fuss was about.
On Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at approximately 9:36 PM, the Kentucky State Police, Post 11 London, received a report of an Assault at a residence on Curry Branch Road in Clay County.
Upon investigation into the incident KSP Detective Donald Wilson determined that Jamie Scott Abner, 40, of Clay County was at the residence of Roy Glenn Wagers, 36, when an altercation began.
Eight people were arrested Thursday night in round two of a drug bust, which has jailed 25 alleged drug traffickers.
Several people were arrested in the Horse Creek community, and three people were picked up outside of Sibert’s Market, an area the Clay County Sheriff’s Department says they receive complaints about weekly.
Sheriff Kevin Johnson says he hopes to send a message to people dealing drugs in Clay County.
“If you are not going to stop dealing dope, you better find another county to move to, because we are not letting up.”
It was a cold and cloudy day more than four decades ago on December 30, 1970, when a tragedy that claimed the lives of 38 miners from Clay and Leslie County occurred.
On that day, many lives were lost, and seventy-seven children were left without fathers.
