The community is still in shock over the tragic accident that has placed local Pastor Chris Meade in Intensive Care. Chris is a fine man, our paths cross from time to time. Chris, for years has been Alexander Central Football’s Team Chaplain. I remember something he said to me one time when we had a large group of injured players and things looked bleak before the game. He and I were talking and he said with confidence and conviction, “We’ll be all right” and you know what, we were. God Speed Chris Meade !
