Prepare yourself. This is a good and unusual story. It involves the Bethel Church, the Bethel Cemetery, Medal of Honor winner John Rarreick and framed, honorary commissions received by four Northern Kentucky citizens.

The Bethel Church and the Bethel Cemetery are located very near the intersection of Route 17 and U.S. 27. The cemetery was established in 1850. The church was built in 1879. Both the church and the cemetery fell into deterioration. They were neglected and abandoned.

Pendleton County Deputy Sheriff Hunter Craig has followed in his father's footsteps in making a career of law enforcement. His father, Pendleton County Fish and Wildlife Officer Mickey Craig, has spent the past 34 years with the Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife and is due to retire July 31. Thirty-one of those years he has been working in Pendleton County.

Prior to working for the sheriff's office, Hunter was employed with the Campbell County Detention Center for two years. Shortly after beginning there, he began to consider a job in law enforcement and spoke to his father about the possibility. "When I told Dad I wanted to work in law enforcement, he told me to go to every police department and see what opened up. That was within the first six weeks of my working there and it took me two years to get a job."
