1 Cheers to
the fantastic first responders who handled the difficulty of last week’s weather with speed and efficiency.

2 Cheers to
Camden County for selecting John Page as the EMA Director. We couldn’t have thought of a better choice.

3 Cheers to
Magruder paving for donating tons of asphalt to the Morgan County R-II School District.

1 Jeers to
Camden County resident Joshua Smith, who was charged with counts of sex trafficking. The crimes is an ignored epidemic in this country, but your alleged actions bring them far too close to home.

2 Jeers to
whoever or whatever allowed fugitive Brian Adkison escape from a Caldwell County jail. We can only hope that he won’t lead police to the lake area again.
