It’s not likely very many people attended more Christian Fiscal Court meetings over the last four decades than did longtime WHOP News Director Jim Love, who was remembered at this morning’s meeting.
Christian County Judge-Executive and longtime friend Steve Tribble remembered Love before the opening prayer and expressed his sympathy to friends and family.
Magistrate Jim Flemming said Jim had covered his political career since it began about 25 years ago and said Jim was always fair in his reporting on county government.
Jim ran for District 4 Magistrate following his first semi-retirement in 2006 and lost his one and only political bid to Incumbent Tom Jones. The campaign remained positive throughout and Jones said he and Love were likely better friends after the election than they were before.
Several officials at the meeting pointed out how they’d miss Jim and commented on the knowledge of the history of county government that was lost when Love passed away early Sunday morning after a long battle with cancer.
