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.
