Sixth Grade Students Need Shot,…..

Okay. What did the little varmints do now? Did they not mow the lawn? Or take out the trash or maybe they didn’t clean their room. I am thinking if I’m in the fifth grade, I really might not want to advance to the sixth. But shooting them might be a bit extreme. You can go to jail for that. Unless your name might be Casey Anthony.

But seriously. This was an actual title to a story by Lisa Singleton-Rickman who can spell her name, but apparently doesn’t know the word immunization. http://www.timesdaily.com/article/20110801/NEWS/110739973/1011/NEWS?Title=Sixth-grade-students-need-shot


Julys Shoals Trivia contest has a new winner. Lulu. Congrats to her and thanks to all that played. Once again it was close and the winner wasn’t decided until the last couple of days. I actually had the lead, for a day.  Here are Julys results.

Good news for Hackleburg. Vanity Fair announced that the Wrangler plant will be rebuilt with construction slated for the spring. Operations at the new, larger plant will most likely begin in 2013. I cannot imagine losing a loved one, house and job in a matter of seconds. This has got to be a small weight lifted off of the town and people that were employed there.
