  • Thank you to unknown caller

    The family and friends of Jackie Payne would like to thank the unknown person who rendered aid to him by calling 911.  Jackie had a motorcycle accident on Mulberry Pike on 10/6/10 at approximately 8:30 p.m.  He was unconscious and lying off the roadway when this unidentified male called for medical assistance.  We need more people like this in the world who are willing to go above and beyond.

    General Manager

    Two-year-old Xavier Rutledge sat on a special perch in the barber’s chair, eyes transfixed on a television nearby.

    Focused on a cartoon, Rutledge didn’t seem to notice that barber Mark Blackburn was trimming the toddler’s locks. Not all barbers will cut children’s hair, Blackburn said, because children can be, well, squirmy.

  • Stop messing with the thermostat!

    It’s a source of contention in many households. Cold natured folks and hot natured folks battle for temperature control.

    In my own home, Derek (the cold natured one) and I (the warm natured one), can’t seem to agree on just what temperature we want the house.
