  • Washington, D.C. trip being planned for local veterans

    Washington D.C., the capital city of the United States, holds war memorials that are visited by thousands of veterans each year.

    However, at Moday’s Memorial Day ceremony, several local veterans said that they had not visited the war memorials.

    A couple of local men are trying to change that.

  • Fair rides into town

    The annual Taylor County Fair will be back in town June 3-10, and fair organizers are hoping for at least 14,000 attendees this year.

    Fair Board President Paul Malone said one big change from previous years is a new midway provider, James Gang Amusements out of Andalusia, Alabama. A midway provider is a contractor that provides rides, other attractions, game booths and fair foods.

    “We’ll have 18 rides,” said Malone. “We’ll have rides for small children, and then there’ll be rides for the youth … and adults.”

  • Hot vehicles pose danger for kids, pets

    Over the last seven years, an average of 37 children die in the U.S. per year from vehicular heat strokes, caused by being locked in a hot car with no air conditioning, according to kidsandcars.org.

    The majority of these incidents are unintentional, usually stemming from a distracted parent who forgets that a child is still in the car.

    Incidents like these happen at a variety of places, from grocery stores to places of employment and many others.

    Especially in parking lots, an unsuspecting citizen may spot a child in a car on a hot, summer day.

    “We are looking to have a larger structure that complements the athletic complex,” said Keith Spears, CU vice president for communication.

  • Missing goose safely returned home

    Melvin is safe at home.

    Just more than a week after a popular Canada goose, which has lived at the former State Fire Rescue Training Center for Area 14, went missing, it has now returned.

    The goose, named Melvin by many who visited the area, was found Wednesday evening around Robinson Creek.

    Mark Gray, who owns the old State Fire Rescue Training Center property, said he was excited to have Melvin back at home. He estimated that Robinson Creek was about six or seven miles from Melvin’s home.
