  • No one immune to untimely events

    Maybe it is the fact that my son is just weeks away from getting his driver’s license.

    Or maybe it is from writing too many stories detailing death coming much too early for too many youths in our community.

    Just ask the families of Preston Cissell, Jason Smith and R.D. Reynolds.

    The community lost each of these young men in the recent couple of months. They were lost in different ways but they were all lost much too early in their lives.

  • Nostalgic look at Belmont community

    I am 82 years old, and my wife (80) and I are retired in Palm Desert, Calif.

    Born in Belmont I spent the first 16 years of my life there. We are attending the Belmont Baptist Church for the first time in 66 years, and it calls for a bit of nostalgia and reminiscing about life during and after Belmont.

    Regular attendance at Sunday School and Church each Sunday was expected.  My father was the Sunday School Superintendent, and  my mother was the teacher of a Sunday School Class of small children.
