Locals recognized for accomplishments

CAVE CITY — Quite a few local individuals were taken by surprise Monday night as their names were called out for various awards at the Glasgow-Barren County Chamber of Commerce’s annual meeting and awards banquet at the Cave City Convention Center.

Sue Haynes, executive director for the Community Relief Fund, was honored as the Outstanding Citizen of the Year. Along with Haynes’ work heading Community Relief, she has also been closely involved with Community Medical Care, Habitat for Humanity, Big Brothers Big Sisters and other community service programs. Freddie Norris, who helped organize Haynes’ nomination, called her “a dedicated community servant.” Gina Lyon, who nominated Haynes, said Haynes is the kind of leader that inspires those around her to be passionate about their work.

Haynes said hearing her name was a shock, and she turned the recognition to those who have helped her over the years. Bob Zerbe and Burt Smith are two people that supported her from the beginning, Haynes said, and many others help her every day.

“I couldn’t do it without the chamber and the volunteers and the staff and my family,” Haynes said.

Don Kinslow and his family, owners of Kinslow’s Dairy, were named Farmers of the Year in recognition of the dairy operation they have built up over the last 17 years.

“It’s an honor to take this home,” Don Kinslow said. “...It’s just something you never think you’re going to get.”
