Ensuring Safe Travel for ACHS Prom goers on Sat 18 Apr, 2015

Christy Dover writes:
Prom goers will meet law enforcement officers at the beginning of Brockman Keltner Road. Due to this road being narrow, our county's constables will operate this road as one-way to ensure safe travel. However, traffic must flow both ways so that people can both enter and exit. Our county’s constables will communicate based on the current traffic needs to determine the direction of traffic. Prom goers are asked to be patient as they may have to briefly wait to enter or exit the venue. - Christy Dover

Boots: Blue Star Dog of World War II

Boots waited at the same time in the same place for my brother Russell's return, doing so even after Russell went off to war, even after the terrible news came that Russell would not be coming back. The vigils ended with the tragic news that Boots would not return, either. It was a double heart break for Momma, almost as if Russell had died all over again. - GENIECE MARCUM.

By Geniece Marcum

My brother Russell Leftwich's dog, "Boots," waited every day in the same place for Russell to come home from work. Boots Garrett, a county road department co-worker, had given the dog to Russell when it was just a pup. Russell named the dog for him

The dog loved the whole family, but none so much as Russell. Every afternoon just before Russell would get off work, Boots would take up his post in exactly the same place, to watch for him.
