Receiving actual awards were Jon Goodwin of Cadiz Rentals and Jack Hanberry. Trigg County Judge-Executive Stan Humphries and Tommy Hanberry of the Trigg County Road Department were also thanked. Ricky Butts and Complex Board Member Scotty Hampton were given honorable mentions as well.
“I salute you,” said Complex Board Chairman Ralph Thomas. “We have decided that annually, we’re going to pick individuals that go above and beyond the call of duty to make this place a better place.”
Goodwin also thanked his brother Kerry Goodwin, who co-owns Cadiz Rentals, and said he deserves some credit as well.
Rogers said that Complex Board Member Jim Perrin went back to the hospital last week, as he has been in some pain for the last two-to-three weeks. Perrin, who is also the athletic director at Trigg County High School, is undergoing radiation treatment for cancer.
“He puts up a good front, but he’s been hurting,” Rogers said. “He had a pretty good summer, but for the last three weeks or so he’s been hurting pretty bad.”
Rogers also said that the complex facilities have been “winterized,” and that they are now making sure everything is set for the coming winter months. He also said that the convention is still being rented just about every weekend.
“I think we’re in real good shape as far as next year’s concerned,” Rogers said. “Next spring will be a real challenge for us, because we’ll have spring soccer and baseball getting started at the same time.”
There wasn’t a quorum for the meeting, but the board also took no actions. The next complex board meeting will be at 6 p.m. on Monday, Feb. 14.
