What's news this week in Crittenden County...

Friday at Rocket Stadium offered more than a football rivalry game with Caldwell County; it gave the community a chance to say thank you to veterans, current military personnel and first-responders. The event was planned by the local school district to take place on the 14th anniversary of 9/11. Dozens of men and women were honored at the game, including Chase Matthews, a Dycusburg native and sergeant in the Kentucky Army National Guard who was severly injured by a roadside bomb in Iraq in 2007. Matthews received special recognition.
