It was reported to local news outlets on October 6th that a Powell County Middle School teacher tested positive for COVID-19 after only the second day of in-person classes. As a result, a total of 52 students who were considered contacts of the said educator were placed in quarantine due to the exposure. Fortunately, superintendent Anthony Orr and the PCS administrative staff planned for this sort of outcome and had a procedure to follow working closely with the Powell County Health Department and the families of students after the diagnosis was confirmed in order to prevent any interruption to the education of PCS students.
Earlier in the year, during June, when a back-to-school plan was released to the public, Orr assured the public there was detailed preventative planning that considered the type of proactive control PCS would take in the result of a positive case within the school system, and even entailed preparation for the possibility of a spike in positive cases that could possibly result in a brief shutdown turning to virtual learning, according to Orr’s earlier plans. After 10 days and a clean bill of health from the Powell County Health Department, that teacher will have the opportunity to return to school again. The aforementioned 52 students will be required to quarantine for 14 days. It is also pivotal to understand these 52 quarantined students have not necessarily tested positive for the virus and this is just a safety measure to gain control on the situation and remain proactive.

The Stanton Tourism and Convention Commission have been considering some somewhat major developments and transitions within the city. If these changes do follow through as planned, the community will soon be able to witness the growth of the commission. Ultimately, the Stanton Tourism and Convention Commission have been considering opening a sort of “Welcome Center” within the city limits. The said center would also be the location for where the office lies for the recently appointed Stanton Tourism Director, Natalie Faulkner. Natalie, of course, attended the special called board meeting and had several questions for the owners of the building under consideration being Brenda Crabtree, Penny Crabtree, and Johnny Crabtree. Many locals may recognize Brenda Crabtree as being the part-operator and owner of Crabtree’s Candies. The building up for consideration is now home to That’s Sew You sewing shop, that is located next to the aforementioned candy and baked goods store, Crabtree’s Candies. Co-Owner of That’s Sew You, Susan Watson, also serves on the Stanton Tourism and Convention Commission and vowed for the dependable and understanding sort of working relationship the Crabtrees offer as renters. The popular sewing shop has made a recent announcement of their plan currently underway to move their business to have more room to expand and grow. That’s Sew You will obviously no longer occupy the building alongside Crabtree’s Candies as they do currently and will now be located at 316 Steamshovel Road, Stanton, Kentucky 40380. The location often times is also directed as being approximately 1/8 of a mile behind the street beside Dairy Queen, located on the right just before you start up Steamshovel Hill. The business has announced their grand opening will be held on October 1st, the date in which they plan to once again open their doors. They encourage all of their supporters and any considering newcomers to plan for the event and show their support in the growth of a local business and take the opportunity to get in on the excitement.
The Stanton Tourism board have already began creating and discussing several ideas to improve the building that was once That’s Sew You and draw tourists and locals in. The board members plan to offer merchandise such as sweatshirts and items with their brand, “Exit 22,” and brochures for the public. The Crabtrees overall seem compliant and open to renovations and any improvements upon discussion. “Anything that promotes the town is good,” Penny Crabtree expressed. “We like the location and the price is very fair,” one board member, Joey ___ states. They plan to use local craftsmen to create signs for the center and renovations such as flooring and a few more improvements were mentioned throughout the meeting. The next step before dismissing the Crabtrees from the meeting was the plan for Scott Graham to draw up a lease for the said lease. The Stanton Tourism and Convention Commission mentioned beginning the agreement and introducing the welcome center to the public as early as October 1st of this year, 2020.
Custom made and unique locally designed benches were also mentioned as part of porch decorations for the new welcome center. The next matter of business for this tourism commission is to plan for also improving the drive-in location and including several of these same benches at the drive-in location as well. These benches are supposed to have unique designs with license plate and even possibly tailgate details and bottle openers on the sides.
On Thursday, August 10th, Cash Express employees, Shannon and Brenda, delivered baked goods to the local first responders in honor of the devastating events of September 11th, 2001, otherwise known as 9/11. Long-time employee Shannon states, “I’ve worked for Cash Express for many years, and this is one of the best things we do.” Although it may be a small gesture, it speaks great volumes for the appreciation those at Cash Express hold for the first-responders of this nation. This salute was offered all throughout the county and although it takes a significant departure to reach each and every deserving unit in the county, Cash Express is happy to keep this tradition alive as they have for years now, since the disaster occurred in 2001. These ladies, on behalf of Cash Express, delivered cupcakes to the following entities within the county: Powell County EMS, Powell County Sheriff, Stanton Police Dept., Stanton Fire Dept., Powell County Jail, Powell Family Clinic, Stanton Family Clinic, Stanton Nursing Home, Clay City Police Dept., Clay City Fire Dept., and Middle Fork Fire Dept.
In light of the gesture, Cash Express, LLC CEO Garry McNabb, submitted this letter to the editor. “On some anniversaries we celebrate. On others we reflect. The 19th Anniversary of the attack on America and New York’s World Trade Center is one of the times for reflection. There is truly nothing to celebrate in the extraordinary tragedy of 9/11. As much as I would like to forget some of them, the images from that day will never be out of my mind, nor will the victims and their families.
But there is one memory I want to hold on to, one that I want to cherish as the deepest and most lasting of September 11, 2001. In the memory of the heroism and selflessness demonstrated by law enforcement officers, fire fighters and emergency medical technicians who went about their business that day without concern of their own safety and without consideration for the magnitude of what they were confronting.
I suppose the term “first-responders” was around before 9/11 but I can’t remember even hearing or using it before then. It caught on with me because it succinctly and accurately captures not only what these public servants do, but it says something about who they are.
They are people willing to respond without question or hesitation when our community needs them. Men and women willing to make someone else’s emergency or crisis their own and put their lives on the line doing it. If that doesn’t deserve respect, nothing does.
Most of us have always had an appreciation for first-responders whether we called them that or not. At one time or another, what little boy or little girl didn’t want to grow up to be a police officer or a fire fighter? As time passes and most of us go on to do other things with our lives, we tend not only to out grow our hero worship, but also to start taking things for granted. Then some tragedy happens and our attention is drawn to them again.
I am not sure where the tradition of delivering a dessert to first-responders on the anniversary of 9/11 started in our company, but I’m glad it did. It started out of someone’s caring and appreciative heart and spread from employee to employee and location to location until stores all over Kentucky and Tennessee were involved.
No one ever imagined that taking a meal to first-responders as a way of showing our appreciation would turn out to mean so much to the people in our company. As more and more people and locations became involved, a simple gesture became an annual salute to first-responders. The way we show our appreciation differs from community to community and location to location, but everyone involved knows they have the support and encouragement of our company. We value the opportunity to show their appreciation to first-responders. One of our goals is to encourage others in the community to be involved as well. Using the 9/11 anniversary as an opportunity to refresh and rekindle our feelings for first responders is a good thing. It’s a simple but meaningful way to say, “Thank you First Responders. We salute you.” -Gary McNabb, Chief Executive Officer, Cash Express, LLC

On August 31st the City of Stanton Police Department released some disturbing news to the citizens of Powell County. It appears there has been a series of robberies from vehicles in Powell County within these most recent weeks. After several reports have been made of local residents missing items from their vehicles the next day, an open investigation is now underway at the City of Stanton Police Department in an effort to put a stop to these criminal acts. It is evident these perpetrators are acting out these crimes in the darkest hours and some reports have been made of missing items and hearing strange noises of car doors and some reports of hearing motorbikes outside their homes between the hours of 4 a.m. and 5 a.m. Seeking any valuable item they can get their hands on with no specific target, many are said to be missing guns, electronics and monies that were left in their unlocked vehicles. The city of Stanton Police Department released this statement and description of the crime activity to the public, “The criminals are using the cover of darkness, going car to car, pulling on door handles until they find one that is open. These individuals are taking guns, electronics and monies left in these unlocked vehicles. We are attempting to locate these individuals but wanted to pass along the following safety tips. Make sure when you leave your vehicle unoccupied that you lock the doors. These individuals are only, at the moment, pulling on door handles until they find an open door. Remove all valuables from your vehicle. Like everyone, we all leave stuff in our car out of ease. Whether that’s our work iPad or wallet, these items are easily removable from an unlocked car and are even harder to track back down. Attempt to make sure all important items that can be taken in are done to prevent them from growing legs and walking off. Finally, never ever leave a firearm or handgun in a vehicle while being unoccupied. These devices not only can be deadly but most people do not write the serial numbers down for these weapons and that prevents us from entering the gun as stolen and sometimes we are unable to return a located gun to the owner because we don’t know who it belongs to with no serial number to go by. We are working to make the city safer and will work on locating these individuals disrupting our city. Thanks!” Many homeowners in the area have since invested in security systems and cameras since news spread of these acts to prevent these sort of crimes from happening in their own homes.
