Craig family legacy in law enforcement Print E-mail

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."

2014 fireworks and parade one to remember Print E-mail

The Pendleton County July 4th celebration was a great one thanks to so many who worked very hard to put it together. Children and adults lined up on Shelby Street to watch the parade go by and hurried to pick up the candy that was tossed out. Above is the float from Small World Day Care in Falmouth. This float took first place and was so patriotic. The fire work shows in both Butler and Falmouth were fantastic this year. They lit up the sky with all their colors. Thanks to those that were in charge of getting that together. More parade photos and celebration photos available. All parade photos by Jackie Vaughn.
