The line striping on 16 West is not yet complete and makes the road difficult to see at night especially when rainy or foggy. Caution is in order.

If you have info about the greater Crabtree and 16 West community call Jeff Burgess, 745-1249.

Tom and Gay Whillock traveled to Harrison last week to watch their grandson, Alex Mills, play in the championship flag football game. Alex’s team, the Bears, won 26-12. Every team member received a trophy.


Well it has slowed down a lot and everyone is not as busy this week. Oh, I forgot about the deer hunters, they are very busy and it is fun to see the excitement of the hunt, on their faces when they come into the store.

No one has called with any news so this is all that you get this week. Maybe next week we can talk about all of the big ones they saw, shot or let get away.

Have a good week and call James Burns 592-3935 with any news you want to get into the paper.


I love living in a state where the changing of the seasons is distinct. While the peak of our fall season may be behind us let us find comfort with the family and friends that we will be sharing Thanksgiving with. Travel safe if you are going to be away and enjoy your time with loved ones.

The other morning there was a big majestic buck in the field. The ground was heavy with dew and because the leaves have already begun their descent to earth it made our view all that more clear through the trees. Such beauty to behold in this part of the country, just one more thing to be thankful for. What are you thankful for?

If you live in the Dennard area and have news call Jackie Sikes at 253-4716.
