Butch Hardman, an employee of the Coosa County Highway Department, wants to thank former Sheriff Terry Wilson for the great compliment on how well County Road 18 looks after a job being well done. Bravo to Victor Simmons and Greg Moon.
I want to thank Butch (my reporter of the Neighborhood Watch meetings). He does a good job when I am unable to attend, although he has a little problem sometimes hearing, especially when soft spoken people are speaking. However, God is working it out.
The meeting went very well, Butch said. I believe he loves when I am absent so he can talk more. He loves talking more than listening (smile). That’s one of the reasons he cares less about a hearing aid. We both laughed on that saying. Laughing is very healthy. Let all of us find something to laugh about today. “Come on, Lydia; I laugh with you.”
Back to the Neighborhood Watch meeting, Deputy Overton passed out the Sheriff’s Star news of Coosa County, which has some great reading, and gave the sheriff’s report. President Johnny Schmidt asked everyone about having Union Square’s meeting every other month, and all agreed on it, which sounds good to me. Some people are really busy these days. Working till 5 puts people rushing to get to the meeting at 6. That will give working members a little break for a month off, including President Johnny and Secretary wife Robin, as well as Butch and others.
We welcomed our guests, Jamey Johnson and Ramona Cina and her husband. One will become Coosa County’s circuit clerk next month. Let’s get out and vote, people! If not, keep your mouth closed on who is clerk.
District 3 Commissioner Brandon Davis spoke on tag issues for the EMS fee. It’s always good to have our commissioners to attend our meetings. It’s important for them to be aware and for us, also, to stay abreast of the communities’ well being for everyone.
Make a note, the next meeting is in April. March will just blow on by with the wind.
A moment of Black History and love. February is the month we acknowledge the heart, Black History and love. I and some others are sitting in the shade today because of people like these who planted a tree a long time ago: Muhammad Ali, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Malcolm X, Jackie Robinson, Harriet Tubman, Barrack Obama, Lebron James, and Serena and Venus Williams. These are just a few of the names from generations and generations of prominent Black History, giving Blacks the recognition they deserve.
“The Coosa County News” was very enlightening last week. Thanks to Pastor Sam Kaufman of “Faith Fitness” column titled “Time to grow up” and Sean Dietrich with “Sean of the South,” titled “My prayer.”
Happy birthday to all February babies!
Praying for our enemies. We all have some!
