County approved for weather sirens

January 30, 2013

When you hear a weather siren you know it’s time to pay attention and prepare to take cover. But out in some parts of Clay County residents don’t always hear the city’s weather sirens, and when natural disasters hit close to their homes they only have a few minutes to retreat to safety.
That’s why for five long years Clay County Emergency Management officials have been trying diligently to provide county residents with weather sirens that will warn people when a tornado, thunderstorm or other weather-related disaster is headed their way.

Resurgence of Braves fans about to emerge

January 29, 2013

With Spring Training just weeks away, I can’t be picked on too much for writing a baseball column.
Some might raise issue since we haven’t gotten the Super Bowl played, but since there are no southern teams involved in that game, I’ll take the liberty of skipping ahead to the diamond.
I don’t know how much our Clay County readers have been paying attention to the offseason, but some pretty special things have happened to one of our southern baseball teams.
That would be the Atlanta Braves.

Stretch of highway could be named after Turner, Gibbs

January 29, 2013

You’ve got to admit it. Having a street, road or highway named after you is a pretty amazing honor and means you’ve gone out of your way for the community and done something entirely remarkable for lots of people.
It’s something that makes your family smile every time they drive past the sign and something that the honoree can be proud of and humbled by whether they’re still living or have passed on.
