A few good thoughts

Last week a 12 year-old showed more courage and used more com­mon sense than many of us who are more ex­pe­ri­enced in life would have.

The 12 year-old was home alone Mon­day af­ter­noon; he heard a knock on the door and didn’t rec­og­nize a group of teens who ap­peared there, teens who then ap­par­ently went around the house search­ing for pos­si­ble en­try spots to the home. He heard a back win­dow break and then he quickly called 911.

Sher­iff’s deputies ar­rived on the scene in the nick of time and all was saved.

Our 12 year-old young man was truly, in ev­ery sense of the word, a hero.

It’s promis­ing to see this type of quick think­ing by one of our lo­cal young peo­ple.

Any­thing we can do as cit­i­zens to sup­port our valiant troops should be a pri­or­ity.

This Satur­day, from 4 un­til 9 p. m., there will be a spe­cial ben­e­fit on the Cov­ing­ton Square fea­tur­ing our lov­able friends from Haz­zard County, the Dukes of Haz­zard.

This free event is spon­sored by Op­er­a­tion Sand­box, a group ded­i­cated to col­lect­ing spe­cial needs sup­plies for our troops.

Do­na­tions of toi­letries, drink mixes, en­ter­tain­ment items and bat­ter­ies are wel­come.
