To my readers, I did not have a column last week because of a busy schedule, death in the family, etc. I appreciate all of you. Whenever I am out, it is for a good cause.
Union Square enjoyed a delayed Union Square Fourth of July meeting last Monday evening with two candidates running for office, Jamey Johnson and Ramona Cina; Probate Judge Richard Dean and his wife, Mrs. Jackie Dean; County Commissioner Brandon Davis of District Three; Lt. Bradgel Moon; and Deputy Matt Cook.
Our neighbor and former Sheriff Terry Wilson and his wife, Ran Wilson, always make the meeting a brighter one, as well as the Barclay brothers, Sam and Oscar. Union Square is a blessed neighborhood, and we praise God for that, although we have two unwanted guests (dogs) and pray that God will find them a home. We miss seeing our distant neighbors, Terry, Shirley and Shawn Ogle.
Deputy Cook gave us the sheriff’s report, with Lt. Moon finishing it with a quote that made us all laugh, “He’s in jail.”
Judge Dean gave us some great information, as he always does. People need to come to these meetings and get some needed knowledge of what’s happening in their neighborhood and county. Judge Dean has a lot to offer, and it’s free for your own good!
Commissioner Davis offered his help in serving the communities.
The “Sheriff’s Star of Coosa County” has another good source of information, serious and funny, or a good laugh I’ll say. May I quote one of the July’s laughs? “What does a police officer and a DJ have in common? They both tell drunk people to put their hands up.” That was a good laugh for me.
I enjoyed reading a great serious article by Pastor Chaplain Christopher Todd in this July issue of the “Sheriff’s Star,” titled “Healthy work/rest rhythms: The benefits of Sabbath.” What an awesome article for anyone who put a lot on their plate! Thank you, Pastor Todd.
Prayer list: Thomas Taylor, Wayne Weeks, Pastor Chris Hill and family, the Hoyett family, the Goggans family, and the families of Grady Hill. Please keep me in prayer as I mourn family and loved ones’ deaths, all in just days apart.
Home-going service was held for TeQuiere Hoyett on July 8. Minister Kenneth Jackson did the eulogy in great honor, and a friend of TeQuiere’s repented and gave his life to Christ. What a great day at a home-going service.
My nephew’s, Grady Hill’s, was held July 11 at First Baptist Church in Rockford. Pastor Stanford Benson did the eulogy from Genesis 4:8-10, titled “We are in This Together.” Benson spoke on how families should stick together at all times and love each other at all times.
Happy birthday to Lady Mandy Hill, Mother Sue Evans, Mrs. Carrie Lawrence, Lady Dorothy Benson, Mrs. Sylvia Burton, and to all July babies. And in memory of Mr. Lewis Scarbrough, happy birthday. We miss you so much!
