Former University of Kentucky basketball player Jeff Sheppard instructed children during a “Shoot Hoops Not Drugs” basketball camp held June 24 at the Letcher County Central High School gymnasium. One hundred sixty two children from Letcher and six other counties in Kentucky attended the free camp sponsored by Operation U.N.I.T.E. (Unlawful Narcotics Investigations, Treatment and Education). “All we want to do is come into the community and teach kids a little about basketball and life,” said Sheppard. “The whole reason for the camp is to teach them that they all are talented and God has created them for a purpose and to stay away from drugs.” (Photo by Sally Barto)
