99th-Birthday_Page-03

On Monday, March 17th, the usually ordinary activity of doll making was briefly set aside.  The ladies chose St. Patrick’s Day to celebrate the 99th birthday of one of their most diligent workers, Dot Breazeale.  She has been a member of Taylors First Baptist Church since 1959, and is active in the Global Missions Group.  In early 2010, a meeting devoted to local mission activities featured a lady from Berea First Baptist Church with a sample cloth doll they sent to children in foreign countries to tell about Jesus.  Tricia Phillips and several ladies, including Dot, went to Berea First Baptist, where they learned to make the dolls.

The True Story of Dr. John P. Weber by His Son Tom Weber

The-Christmas-Doctor-AD

Several weeks ago, Tom Weber, a Subscriber to The Times Examiner from Utah sent me a copy of the book he had written and published about the life of his father. As a self-imposed rule, I only write and publish a book review after I have read the book. Sometimes that means a long wait.

Since I had made a commitment to Tom last year, and he had been so kind and patient, I committed myself to read the book this past weekend. I began reading after lunch on Sunday and although we had relatives visiting, I could not put it down for more than a few minutes at a time until I read the last page.

About 80 people Attended Greenville County Citizen Roads Advisory Commission Meeting at Greer City Hall

Lisa-Stevens_Page-01When Lisa Stevens asked for a show of hands of those who would favor a tax increase to repair roads, about 90 percent of those in attendance at the Greer meeting of the Greenville County Citizen Road Advisory Commission raised their hands. Stevens is chairman of the commission. Of course, those present and voting were mostly people that had a special interest in road and sidewalk construction and repairs because of a pet project or perceived urgent need in their neighborhood or a project that would be beneficial to their business.

The first speaker represented Ashmore Brothers Construction Co., a paving contractor. He presented the commission with a list of needed road projects.  Another speaker, who was a developer and builder had a list of intersections and sidewalks that needed improvements.

Fire-Dept-DSCN1355

The Tigerville Fire Department honored Charles K. “Ken” Ward and his wife Betty Jean during the annual awards banquet Friday night at North Greenville University. Chief Russell Ledford made the presentation and cited Ward for 38 years of dedicated service as a volunteer firefighter and 22 years as a Fire Commissioner. His commission term ends this month and Ward has decided at age 80 to allow younger firemen to rush out in the middle of the night in all kinds of weather to fight fires and preserve lives. Although he is retiring from official duties, no one expects Ken Ward to sit in a rocking chair at home if his fellow firemen are heading to a fire or assisting a neighbor in distress.
