    It certainly is not why Jenny Oldham became a county attorney, but her recent recognition as Kentucky’s County Attorney of the Year is a nice acknowledgement of the work she has accomplished in a short time on the job.

    Elected in 2010, Oldham has made noticeable changes.

    Outside the U.S. Army, it is likely Operation Warrior Forge is unfamiliar to most in the community. But for those in leadership inside the post’s gates and members of the CORE Committee, it has been an important target for addition to Fort Knox for many years.
