    Since his death early last Friday morning, tributes to officer Kenny Goodlett of the Lawrenceburg Police Department have been pouring into this newspaper’s Facebook page and other online platforms.

    Here are some of those tributes.

    I wish all the best of luck to officer Kenny Goodlett and his family. I am so sorry to hear the loss of a wonderful man and police officer. I’ve known him for years. He was a dedicated officer who served and protected Lawrenceburg.

    “Someone said we should hang a banner on the front of the building,” Tinsely said last week. “I’m definitely proud but don’t really like to toot my own horn.”

  • ‘God saved us’

    With his 8-month-old grandson in his arms, Lawrenceburg resident Tommy Wise was forced to hunker down beside his car as portions of a daycare center’s roof blew past him last Thursday evening.

    “All I could do was duck down. It happened in a blink of an eye.”
