Very sad about the poultry house operation burning Monday in Taylorsville. The smoke is still in the air this morning in the area of the fire.
The County Recreation Department does a terrific job with the County Programs. The Football Championships were held last night and it was a hoot !

I’d throw my hat into the ring but I think too highly of my hat
