What has been an annual tradition in McNairy County became even more poignant as it contrasted the tragic shooting of children and others at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn. last Friday.
The good Lord was not the only one receiving praise last Sunday. The Division I Class 2A Football State Runner-Up Adamsville Cardinals were honored at a community appreciation day held at Adamsville High School for their accomplishments in the 2012 season.
After suffering what was only their second loss of the season, the Adamsville Lady Cardinals journeyed to Bartlett Lanes in Bartlett, Tenn. last Thursday and showed Munford and Brighton the just how bad the wrath of angry birds can be. Their two wins over their region opponents gave them an 8-2 record overall, clinching a first round bye in the Region 7 Tournament in the process.
Trooper Kennie Lamberth of the Tennessee Highway Patrol investigates a one-car accident in Michie last Friday. The driver of a maroon Ford Aerostar van, Lindsey Nichole Spicer was transported by air to THE MED for medical treatment. There were no passengers in the vehicle. The van was traveling southbound of Highway 22, ran off the road and hit a tree at Stutts Road. Lamberth said he had not yet drawn any conclusions about the causes of the accident since he was unable to talk to Spicer due to her condition. He did say that there was no indication of alcohol or drugs. A spokesperson for THE MED told the Independent Appeal last Monday that she was in fair condition.
The town of Finger held its monthly meeting last Monday and it took the opprutunity to swear in two new aldermen.
