Lindsey Wilson - the MSC North Division Regular Season Champions - is set to face off with Cumberlands (Ky.), Campbellsville (Ky.), Thomas More (Ky.), Midway (Ky.) and Rio Grande (Ohio).

Commentary: Praise for Adair Co. Attorney Hutchison-Corbin

By Bill Patrick
Retired Executive Director of the Kentucky County Attorneys Association

Recently I retired as Executive Director of the Kentucky County Attorneys Association. A position that I was privileged to hold for more than a decade. Prior to assuming that position, I had twice been elected Powell County Judge Executive and also served as the Executive Director of the Kentucky Office of Drug Control Policy.

During my time in all these posts, I worked with many dedicated men and women serving their communities. I have also witnessed a few who were not well suited for the public trust they possessed. Working with County Attorneys this past decade, I have first-hand, up-close, professional experience with their unique and enormous responsibilities.

I felt compelled to send this letter to voice my thoughts on Jennifer Hutchison-Corbin. Adair County is fortunate to have a woman of her stature serving as County Attorney. Over the years, Jennifer has demonstrated her concern for public safety and has served as an example of what it means to be a firm, fair and even-handed prosecutor. This has earned Jennifer the well-deserved respect of her colleagues across Kentucky.
