    City of McKee Bids Farewell to Former Mayor

    Story Submitted
    City of McKee residents were saddened to learn of the passing of their dear friend and former Mayor of McKee, Kenny Isaacs. The McKee Volunteer Fire Department proudly displayed the American flag over Highway 421 to honor the former mayor. Kenny had been ill for several years and had not been out of his home very often because of illness; however, the city, his family, and his friends had not forgotten him. Kenny served on the McKee City Council for 18 years while Doug Becvar and Jack Gabbard served as mayor. Kenny was also mayor for 3 years and carried out Gabbard’s term when he became ill and unable to fulfill his duties as mayor. One of the highlights of Kenny’s service to McKee was in 1998 when he dedicated the 290 park and re-named it the Jack Gabbard Memorial Community Park.

    FRANKFORT- State Rep. Robert Goforth (R-East Bernstadt) has pre-filed BR 97 ahead of the 2019 Regular Session of the Kentucky General Assembly, which convenes in January. Goforth’s bill would amend several existing laws to remove location restrictions for persons with a concealed deadly weapon license. Goforth’s bill would revise current state law to allow any CCDW permit holder to carry a concealed weapon in government or school facilities. The law at present only allows certain persons, such as current or retired county attorneys, commonwealth’s attorneys, judges, and current and retired law enforcement officers to carry concealed weapons “at all times and at all locations” with the exceptions of courtrooms, law enforcement offices, or jails. “This is a public protection bill,” Goforth said.
