Dear Editor, I do not normally respond to letters to the editor. As a city commissioner, I understand that a certain amount of criticism comes with the job of making important and sometimes difficult decisions that not all will agree with. However, I take offense to Ms. Wilmott’s disparaging remarks about my profession of athletic training. I am a nationally certified allied health care professional and am also licensed by the Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure.

As long as there are sports, there will be injuries. And thanks to Boyle County's newest sports camp, there will be a few more people who are prepared to deal with them. Trish Crowe is better prepared to tape ankles, Mary Kate Gilkey knows how to apply a better bandage and Stanzi Littlefield is more familiar with how to respond to some of the most serious of injuries, though she hopes she never has to. Whether it's taping ankles or taping someone to a backboard, the girls who attended Boyle County's first Athletic Training Student Aide Camp will know more about it when this week is through.

Dear Editor: On April 22-24, The Presbyterian Church of Danville hosted its second National Godly Play Teacher Training Conference. The 25 participants from five states were made keenly aware of the generosity of our city and county. Housing provided once again by Comfort Suites got rave reviews as did the catering by The Toy Box. Local businesses, banks, the Chamber of Commerce, the Heart of Danville, the mayor, McDowell Place and Centre College provided things for "goodie bags" that showed that the people of Danville and Boyle County wanted these people to feel welcomed and pampered while they were here.

Kentucky justifiably proclaims itself as the "horse capital of the world," but in the world of Kentuckian Elijah McQuerry, Arizona holds the title. In fact, the 20-year-old Boyle County native left his home state a few months ago for Scottsdale, Ariz., to pursue a career reining quarter horses. He headed west over Christmas, and it's been a gift that has kept on giving ever since. "Arizona may not be the capital of the overall horse industry, but it is the real hub of the reining horse industry," said McQuerry in a recent telephone interview.

Greg Wilson always had been an athletic guy. He played defensive tackle on his high school football team at Boyle County, and during his senior season, the team became the first from BCHS to win a state championship. Wilson's future was looking bright. His athletic ability had even earned him a spot on the Campbellsville University team. All that changed, however, before he even got the chance to play a regular season game in college. A spinal fracture incurred during a preseason scrimmage about eight years ago forced Wilson off the team and out of sports forever.

I got the chance to test out my police skills with the Wilmore Police Department last Thursday in a series of virtual training exercises. The training was held in a trailer that had two rooms, a small one in the back that had a bunch of monitors and other video equipment, and a larger one in the front with a giant projection screen. In that room there were two barricades and an unloaded pistol with a sensor on it. The purpose of the exercises is to gain experience in high-pressure situations that involve a weapon.
