Summerall: Old soldiers

March 23, 2013

My dad was one of those lucky few who went into the military to serve his country during a slow period. By that I mean he went into the Air Force after the Korean War and before the Vietnam War. It didn’t make him any less patriotic, I just think it made him less likely to die. He had his opinions on the war in Vietnam. None were complementary to the men who burned their draft cards or ran away to Canada. I can still remember how angry he was when President Ford pardoned the “draft dodgers.” His feelings toward “Hanoi” Jane Fonda were worse. Much worse.

Brinkley: In the face of death

March 21, 2013

Execution has always been the fate of the worst criminals, bandits and outlaw. Once a condemned man is sent to the gallows society never has to worry about him again. We don’t have to feed him. We don’t have to maintain a jail cell for him. We don’t have to worry about medical expenses for him. There is no cost associated with him after that because they always go from the gallows straight to the grave.

Before and after

March 18, 2013

Last week, the city board of selectmen and other officials pledged support to repair and beautify the Sam Wilhite Transportation museum on Depot Drive. All agreed the structure had been neglected since it was relegated to “appointment only” hours in 2010. Above, the building is already seeing a drastically improved look after the city trimmed the bushes surrounding the museum. The metal sign above was almost completely obstructed by shrubbery last week. Photo by Bryan Davis

DAR discusses historical mound

The Horseshoe Robertson Chapter of the NSDAR met Thursday at the First Christian Church. The ladies have brought up the need lately for the clearing and restoration of the Native American mounds, South of town on Highway 45 Alt. The original marker on the Highway which shows the site to be on the National Registry of Historic Places, was placed there under the direction of the wife of Presbyterian minister and missionary J.P. Unger. She herself was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution.
