On this 20th anniversary of the largest terror attack ever on American soil, let us never forget the over 3000 EMS, Firefighters, Law Enforcement Officers and Civilians who lost their lives. Remember and honor the countless number of our Service Members who died in the insuing war over the last 20 years. Let us not forget their sacrifice. Let us all get back onto the path of America First!! Perhaps we can re-learn how to put political and philosophical views aside and rejoice in being an American. Be proud to be an American. September 11, 2001- Let us all remember. Not just today but everyday.

UPDATE:
The Hardin County Crime Task Force was able to take a male into custody this evening as a suspect in this case. We would like to thank the community for all of your help and ongoing support, especially the employees of our local businesses that remain extra observant and vigilant. We couldn't do it without you. Details will be released as soon as charges are finalized.

The Kenton Police Department seeks assistance from the public in identifying this suspect. On Tuesday March 20th at 2:25 P.M. a white male entered the Marathon Store located at 303 N.

The male is approximately five foot ten inches tall with a slim build and brown facial hair. The suspect appears to be in his early to mid twenties and was wearing dark sunglasses, a green stocking hat, black shirt, light colored jeans and brown work boots.
