I’ll always remember last New Year’s Eve as one of the best times I’ve ever had in this little hometown of mine.
Early in his tenure as Somerset’s mayor, Alan Keck made a statement at a city council meeting that has defined his service. “To get things done, you’ve got to get things done,” he said, a plain-spoken and simple declaration that, in order to be executed, requires a vision that must be pursue…

Kentucky prep student-athletes across the Commonwealth held their collective breath on Friday as the Kentucky Department of Education Board met — with the possibility on the table that it would opt to cancel fall sports.
“I hope this doesn’t happen but it’s just going to take one 16- or 17-year-old to drop dead on a sporting field before someone notices that it’s not fictional.”
Our family has a tradition. On the night before the first day of school, my daughter Carly puts on her Class of 2027 T-shirt for a photo. Then, on the big morning — the first day of classes — we have a picture of her, all dressed up and ready to go.
I had a few broadcasting classes in college — the most notable of which were taught by the late, great Don Orwin at Somerset Community College.
Classes start Monday and we are so excited to welcome our students back. Here at SCC we have continued to prepare for a robust fall semester and that includes the return of our faculty and their preparation to teach you in a variety of classes.
