The Office of Kentucky Homeplace is being closed in Morgan County.
We’re wholly infuriated and can’t do much more than post a letter to the editor published in The Morehead News:
On July 1 the Morgan County Office of Kentucky Homeplace is scheduled to be closed in our region. This important program works together with Christian Social Services in Morehead and our outreach center in Elliott County by providing long-term medicine and health supplies (eye glasses, etc.) for our clients. Like CSS, they serve families on fixed incomes that rely on this long-term service to balance their monthly budgets.
I cannot stress enough what closing this office will do. Their staff has been our partner for several years. They make home visits to families in our county and professionally and compassionately care for them.
Our families and friends will suffer during this financial crisis without this valuable service.
Way to screw eastern Kentucky! Let Lee Todd and other over-paid folks on the state teat keep their bonuses while jobs are lost, services are cut and communities suffer.
This is what’s wrong with Kentucky. Everybody reading this should be ashamed.
