    The Scouting for Food pickup is Saturday, Nov. 19 at 9 a.m. This past Saturday, we had more than 90 people come out to participate with the first phase of the 2011 Scouting For Food effort. These volunteers distributed more than 1,500 flyers throughout the city and some outlying areas (i.e. Hwy. 36 to Hunters Ridge, M&T Road, Indians Hills) – a big thanks to everyone that came out to help.

  • Changes visible after month away; community loses a treasure with Salyers’ death

    I go away for one month and when I get home there are huge silos in Prestonville. I mentioned it to some folks and they didn’t even know about these new structures, but I ran into Judge Tomlinson Friday and he said it’s something to do with grains.  Then I heard soybeans from someone else. So I guess they are grains? I thought they were legumes, but I’m shaky on my agrarian terms.
