Bath County News-Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper December 17, 2008 3 FIRE .ontinued from the fron Community News HUNT continued from the fronI 9 Oaks Farm News By: Pat Gates Holiday greetings to all! Today is Dec. 14th, and only 11 days left until Christmas Day. I hope all the children have a nice Christmas and get at least one gift they are hoping for. But most of all I hope everyone remembers the true meaning, which is that God sent His only son Jesus to us on that day that we might have eternal life with Him in Heaven. Thank you God. Tonight is our church Christmas program and I am looking forward to going, especially as my husband will be along. Morn and I made our annual trip to Lexington to shop and we truly enjoyed the day. I will be going to the cemetery today to place some flowers on the graves of my family members that are gone to be with God. Morn and I made a gingerbread train on Saturday and it turned out well. I enjoyed the companionship and visit. I will be making houses this week. Gale and Becky got the house decorated beautifully. Thanks girls for being there for me. Prayers go to the Withrow family who had a fire and lost two daughters and their home. Please give generously to the fund for them at the Salt Lick Bank. I want to end by wishing a Merry Christmas to all and a happy new year! The prayer this week is Matthew 2:9---And behold, the star that they had seen at its rising preceded them, until it came and stopped over the place where the child was. The Baby Boy By: Tammy Scheller To have Christmas peace and joy, we can't forget the Baby Boy. A home in Heaven, our souls to lift, we'll never get a greater gift. So, if we want real peace and joy, let's not forget the Baby Boy. May God bless you and keep you in the shadow of His wings. 606-845-8400 OR 1-800-737-0456 ASK FOR SALE,c Oakley News James and Marsha Reed met with Liz and Matt Reed at Red Lobster in Lexington for lunch Wednesday.

"l hope it's not true," said neighbor Libby Smith, as she walked toward the scene. Smith said she knew the family well and adored the children. ' Those little girls are so precious... They are always so happy." Moments later Smith left in tears, unable to speak, having learned the sad truth as she walked slowly back down the road, away from the scene of the tragedy. Bath County Coroner Robert Powell, members of the Salt Lick, Owingsville and Olympia Fire Departments were on the scene as well as local and state law enforcement officials. Members of the local fire departments battled the blaze while keeping the integrity of the scene intact for further investigation. Kentucky State Police Trooper Joe Veneman assisted Gardner at the scene with the death investigation. That investigation continues with there being no reason to suspect foul play being involved with the fire. Meanwhile, Bath County residents planned a candlelight vigil Tuesday evening to remember Kayla and Lucy. As the Bath County News-Outlook goes to press, the event is planned to take place at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the City of Refuge Church on Sour Springs Road in Olympia, if the weather was not too inclement. Jodi Triplett, 23, of Bath County helped organized the candlelight vigil. Triplett lost her sister, Jennifer Triplett, and cousin Nicole Helton in a tragic apartment fire in Sept 2006. A candlelight vigil then gave her family and friends of Jennifer and Nicole, support and comfort during that tragedy.

"It's always bad when a child is lost," Triplett stud. "The Withrow family was such a thoughtful and caring family and Virgil and MaryEtta had helped many children in the past. I wanted to help do this because I hope it will show the family members that the community does care for them. We know this is a hard situation but we want them to know that they are in our hearts and prayers. We want to show our support and keep the memory of Lucy and Kayla alive." Reverend David Adams, pastor of the City of Refuge Church, where the Withrow family are members, spoke of Lucy and Kayla Withrow. "they were real good girls," Adams said. "And there are no better people than Virgil and MaryEtta." Adams has been leading sermons and teaching Sunday school at the church since it was built 23 years ago. "Lucy was so full of life and very outgoing. She liked to sing in church. Kayla was a little quieter, but a sweet girl. They both enjoyed making cakes and cookies." Adams said the family had been attending services each week for the past four or five years. "They had a joyful life," he said quietly. Adams and others have been visiting Virgil, MaryEtta and Danielle at the hospital and Adams reports that all are making slow but marked progress each day. He asked the community members to continue to pray for the family and keep their faith strong. "Hold onto the hand of the Lord," he said. '2VIany things in life we do not understand, but with God all things are possible. God is always with us and is with the Withrow family. They were very strong in their belief and they are strong people. They will need everything when they leave the hospital and we will help them with everything they need." If you would like to help the Withrow family, you can drop off donations at Salt Lick Deposit Bank in Bath County. You can contact the bank at 606-674-2801. You can also donate at any Central Bank location in Kentucky. Steve Meadows, Personnel Director for Bath County School District, said staff members at the Bath County Middle School, where Lucy and Kayla were students, and at the Bath County High School, where Danielle was a 9th grade student, continue to assist students with grief counseling. "Without ceasing, our thoughts and prayers continue for the Withrow family. Their family is our family; their sorrow is our sorrow. On behalf of Superintendent Hutchinson, the Bath County School community extend our deepest sympathy to the family in this most difficult and troubling time."
