Everyday Heroes: Sheriff Craig Peoples advocates prevention after son's suicide Print E-mail


By Steve Flairty, KyForward

The loss of a son or daughter is, without question, near the top of the list of most painful things that can happen to any human. When that loss happens as a result of suicide, the anguish suffered could be even worse. Leastwise, suicide produces lots of hard questions - and acceptable answers are almost never found. Sometimes, all one can do is try to find a way to lessen others’ pain. That’s what Craig Peoples is attempting to do.

What is Boston Steele Day at Kincaid Park? Print E-mail

Boston Steele Day is always the Saturday before Labor Day. This year that date is Saturday, August 30.

The event is held at Kincaid Lake State Park in the multi-purpose building from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Lunch is served from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Boston Steele, a resident of Pendleton County, built the above cabin in 1774. It is the second oldest house in Pendleton County. Nails were very costly in that era and almost unobtainable when the cabin was put together. It is held together by wooden pegs and dovetail joints. The cabin still stands inside the park and is being used as the ranger 's station.

This celebration is held each year and everyone is invited to attend. There will be crafters set up at the multi-purpose building, folk music, craft demonstrations and other misc. events.

There will also be lots of good mouthwatering food such as famous fishtail sandwiches, hush puppies, pulled pork, hot dogs, chips, baked beans and other refreshments all at a nominal charge.

All money raised goes into a lodge fund.
