CATLETTSBURG, Ky. — A new animal shelter, public park revamps, a remodel of the convention center and a proposal to house the majority of county government services under one roof are among the many trailblazing projects the Boyd County Fiscal Court laid out at a Thursday work session.
In a continuation of the wish list Judge-Executive Eric Chaney rattled off at the last Fiscal Court meeting, commissioners dove into the nitty-gritty of the proposed projects and the financing behind it.
Perhaps the biggest news — and the most exploratory in terms of where they’re at — is Chaney’s proposal to swap some county land at Paul Coffey park with the owners of the Addington Building over in Cannonsburg, a former coal mine equipment facility.
Depending on how the property at Paul Coffey would appraise, the county would still have to put in some cash money to seal the deal, Chaney noted.

ASHLAND, Ky. — Fans of the Highlands Museum and Discovery Center’s Christmas Tour of Homes can enjoy the sights from the comfort of their own homes.
The tour, which usually starts at the museum and includes visits to at least a half-dozen residences in the area, will be offered virtually this year.
Daryl Akers, a volunteer at the museum and on the committee to make the video, said work has been ongoing.
"You’ll be able to see it on the museum’s website and we’ll probably have it done by Dec. 5," he said. He said he plans to show still photographs and videos. He said the video will be something to look forward to.
"People are kind of excited about Christmas because of everything else that’s going on," Akers said. "Some are decorating early and we’re lucky we can get started early with the filming."

Communicating Through the New Year
Hello from the desk of the Alliance. Kari, here! Tim is off solving all of the world's problems so I thought I'd share a few of the communicative updates we're making this year.
In order to organize our weekly communication methods, we want to categorize our e-blasts in 2021. That being said, we will be sending out a Wednesday newsletter called Shop Members. It will contain all of your business' deals/promotions/advertisements, etc. (We will include them on our Facebook page as well as our Instagram.) We know life gets busy and it's easy to forget to send things in, so if you would like we can send you a reminder before the inclusion deadline each week. Simply reply to this email if that is something you'd be interested in.
We will be starting a similar idea but instead of advertisements, it'll be fundraisers, community events, and ways to get involved serving our sweet community. We will also be highlighting the needs of our many, local non-profits. Now... I cannot think of a clever name for this one. So if you'd like to name our new Monday newsletter, I'd appreciate your input. Don't worry I'll give you all of the credit. ;)
