Letters to the Editor

Letters to the Editor

Dear Editor:
    Thank you so very much for the expansive and energetic coverage that "Pickens Progress" provided to all of us for the 2015 Pastor's Pot event May 2nd -- it topped all previous years. The clergy and the parishioners were jubilant after reading the wrap up story by Hank Hollensbe. 
    I know he's listening but ya gotta give praise where it's deserved.  The staff and volunteers for CARES and all participating churches appreciated his interest and epilogue created as the "battlefield" at Jasper United Methodist Church.  It was exciting and fun and we so very much appreciated his presence at your direction. 
    But more thing, the annual Heart & Soul fund raiser is coming up September 19 at Holy Family.

Dear Editor:
    I’m quite shocked with the lack of opposition I’ve seen toward the proposed water park. The only thing that has gotten attention is how excited the county commissioners are about the possibility of it being built.
