Greetings from Rumsey. Although we should be enjoying a white Christmas, Mother Nature has been having hot flashes and flip-flops are back in order. I am so anxious for the new year and hope 2016 will be a great year for each of you.

I had the pleasure of attending the Kentucky State Festival Pageants last month to watch my local pageant preliminary winners compete. It is amazing to see such talented boys and girls at such a young age, with so much confidence and positive sportsmanship. Congratulations to each of you, you make this county proud.

The annual Livermore Light Up Christmas Parade was a huge success. I was very impressed with the JROTC, McLean County Marching Band, EMT Squad, paramedics, law enforcement, firefighters, Battle of Sacramento, pageant winners, golf carts, church floats, law enforcement and others who participated. The parade was spectacular, and seems to grow each year. Thank you to the volunteers who make these events great.
