Date of News Release: 09/30/2012
(Morehead, KY) -- During the weekend of September 28 thru 30, 2012, West Liberty celebrated their annual Sorghum Festival. The event displayed many handcrafted items from vendors near and far. It was an uplifting atmosphere for everyone. The Kentucky State Police Post 8 took part in the festivities, displaying the "Crash Vehicle" the entire weekend. While the initial observation gives a sobering view, many identified their appreciation towards it. It was an acceptance in their personal lives of what could have been had it not been for the use of seat belts. Many young onlookers were provided additional examples from their parents and guardians, reinforcing the use of seat belts and to not drink and drive.
