There were a range of emotions – from tears to laughter – Friday night at the annual Marshall County Relay for Life.
And that’s what this event is all about. Celebrate, remember and fight back are themes that link all Relays together.
The American Cancer Society’s Relay For Life, according to information on its website, is a life-changing event that gives everyone in communities across the globe a chance to celebrate the lives of people who have battled cancer, remember loved ones lost, and fight back against the disease.

A ‘safe’ place
Do you have a safe place to put “stuff?” I do.
Unfortunately, I don’t know where it is.
I’ve been cleaning and rearranging my sewing room. Not an easy task! Moving the shelves wasn’t that hard. Empty all the fabric and “stuff,” move the shelf, reload the shelf, etc. The sewing machine desk wasn’t that hard either. Empty all the “stuff” and fabric, move the cabinet, reload all the “stuff.”
Letters To The Editor
On May 12, the Hampton Family traveled to Washington, D.C., for a Candlelight Vigil Ceremony held on May 13, in honor of our deceased loved one, officer Carol Jean “Sweetie” Scruggs who died in the line of duty June 25, 2010.
The ceremony was the most beautiful thing we have ever seen. There were police officers from all over the United States, and over 30,000 people from all over the United States came to witness the ceremony.
I just wish everyone from Marshall and all the surrounding counties could have been there to help witness such an occasion.
Again, we are most grateful for the support and help of everyone who made the trip possible.
The Hampton Family
Response to article
When you all were gathering information for the article about Waste Connections replacing R.E.S., did you not notice what I and my neighbors did?
In the advertisement, most of the content is about what all of us have to do and be responsible for to Waste Connections, and the penalties.
I don’t see anything about their looking forward to providing great service, or the remedies we would have if they don’t.
Did it not occur to you all to ask questions such as:
1. What will be done if the company damages a cart that you are holding the resident so responsible for?
2. What is the remedy if your truck is spilling oil down the street?
Or having trash fall into the street?
Or if you miss a resident’s cart?
Well, I called Keith Taylor. He says we have a strong contract for enforcement of Waste Connections’ service.
He also said he had not seen the advertisement, but had other complaints about the abrupt introduction by Waste Connections.
He said ads were to be approved by the board and this one was not.
Did none of this occur to you all?
It infuriated many of us residents.
Please take time to remember our local “heroes” who are serving in war zones around the world.
