  • School is really safe place for many kids

     Poverty - even chronic poverty - and being abused cannot be an excuse for antisocial or criminal behavior. 

    There are countless examples of heroes and regular people in our country who have overcome the most difficult childhood to lead productive lives.

    In schools and in society, we cannot simply allow extremely negative behaviors to go unaddressed. 

    It is a form of societal self-defense because, when we do begin to simply tolerate it - either in a school or in a community - the consequences is that we simply get more of it.

  • Updates on road projects happening in county

     People are always interested in the status of road projects in the county.

    Here’s an update for those road projects, particularly those in the 49th District.

    1.  The road on Old Preston that caved in has been repaired and is open. Should help business return to normal. 

    2. I have been working with CSX and State Transportation to repair the railroad crossing on 44 east (near Publishers). The paperwork has been completed but the crossing cannot be repaired until Spring when asphalt businesses reopen.

  • Thanks to Belcher

     The intersection at Armstrong Lane/Fisher Lane and Highway 44 has made a big difference to those of us who live in that area.

    It has really helped with traffic congestion.

    Now there is going to be a turning lane and light at Bells Mill Road and Highway 44. Getting that intersection completed will make a turn out of Bells Mill onto Highway 44 a lot safer. The completion date is set for next summer.

  • Christmas spirit year-round

     At 29, he has a debilitating back injury, worth just over $700 a month in disability insurance. She’s a star at a local fast food restaurant. She looks for a second job. A truck is their lifeline and home for this family of six.

    Yeah, I said six. 

    Lots of body warmth to share this Christmas season.

    The youngest is two. Her sister, the oldest, a young teen, with two more in between.

  • Thanks to Belcher

     Guru Market/Spirit Gas Station, and other businesses along Old Preston Highway, would like to thank State Rep. Linda Belcher for helping in getting the road fixed and reopen.

    The state planned to shut the roadway down after it was damaged, and Ms. Belcher fought to keep it open as a historic roadway.
