My heart aches every time I see a photograph of the man who died in that accident Wednesday morning in Ellendale. A wife and 3 children with a long life ahead of him. He was working overnight to support his family and help people get electricity and now he’s gone. Live every day to the fullest, tomorrow is never for certain
The culmination of Beat Hickory Week is tonight when the Cougars hopefully do just that, Beat Hickory ! When it happens, go crazy, celebrate, be happy, but show class. That’s how we do it, even against Hickory, we show class. By the way, we play Cougar Football Trivia this morning. You can win a gift certificate from PJ’s Seafood and Steak in Bethlehem. We play at 7:45 !
