BOONEVILLE, Ky. (AP) -- A 94-year-old Owsley County man is Kentucky's longest serving mayor.
 
According to WYMT-TV, Booneville Mayor Charles Long, a World War II veteran, was first elected in 1958 and is still serving. As a matter of fact, he plans to seek re-election.
 
Long says revamping the county's water and sewage lines is his greatest accomplishment. He says he hopes he has bettered the lives of those in the community that raised him.
 
Says Long: "Life has been ... good to me and I thank the Lord every day for living,"
