First Responder Appreciation

By Erin Powell

For the past fifteen years when September 11 rolls around, it is not considered just another ordinary day. Everybody remembers where they were when they heard the tragic news that a plane flew into the World Trade Center in New York. Our country was under attack. Immediately, first responders went to work without thinking twice, or having any idea of what lied ahead.

Festival Time

By Margaret Salvaggio

With fall setting in and maybe a cooler weather forecast it is time for the St. Mary’s Church Fall Festival. The excitement is in the air with all the preparations to make the festival fun time for everyone that attends each year. There is always the spaghetti dinner that is served from 11:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Tickets can be purchased up until the moment. The ladies and gentlemen of the parish take many hours to prepare the spaghetti dinner with bread, salad, dessert and a drink. It is always big hit and not many leftovers when it is all done for the day.

Honoring First Responders of Robertson County

By Margaret Salvaggio

 

It is a great privilege to have an outstanding force of men and women that protect and serve the county. When they walk out of their homes everyday it is never known what it will be like. It can be just a routine traffic stop to a small fenderbender or on the other side we don’t like to think about, a major accident, or even a hostage situation. The day is always an unknown.

By Angela Schlieker

 

The American people need to make a political choice in November about how to fix the policies of the Commander in Chief, Congressman Bill Flores told a lunchtime crowd of 60 people during a town hall meeting at the Pridgeon Center in Franklin last week. A majority of the country is frustrated with what’s going on in Washington, he said. House Republicans have a plan to make Americans feel good about their country again, he told the audience as he reviewed points in the GOP’s plan, A Better Way.

Freak storm leaves lasting impression

By Margaret Salvaggio

The afternoon, around 5:00 p.m., last Friday was like any other afternoon except for one little difference the floodgates were opened and the wind was blowing the rain sideways. The water on Highway 6 coming into Hearne from the north was swallowing the road, as the rain just got heavier in the downpour. The outside lane from Love’s Truck Stop all the way into the city was almost covered completely in water from it raining so fast and so hard and not giving the water a chance to run off into the gutters.
