Have you seen the blue pinwheel garden planted in town and wondered what it is for? April is Child Abuse Prevention month. Glascock County Department of Family and Children Services along with Family Connection and Communities In Schools of Glascock County, Inc. are partnering together to spread awareness. Across the nation communities come together during April to promote education and awareness of preventing child abuse. 

Opinion

Dear Editor:
As I’m sure you are aware by now, because of health reasons I am retiring at the end of this year. I have enjoyed my time serving as your Sheriff and feel that I have been able to implement many positive changes for our county.
With that being said, I am supporting my Chief Deputy Jeremy Kelley in his bid for sheriff. Jeremy has served with me for 10 years, four of those as chief deputy.
