        That’s the case with Oliver Springs resident Barbara Hilemon, who played five different parts in the highly acclaimed family-friendly movie, October Sky, which was filmed in Oliver Springs, Harriman, Petros, Wartburg, Oak Ridge, and Knoxville in 1998.

The song service was good too. Travis preached Sunday night, he did very good also. He preached at Mossy Grove on Sunday morning. Bro. Jim had to be gone. We are real proud of Travis. He is a good young man. Love you Travis.

        Wartburg Fire Department would like to remind everyone that October 3rd through October 9th is Fire Prevention week. This year, the theme is “Smoke Alarms: A Sound You Can Live With.”
        According to the NFPA, smoke alarms cut the risk of dying in a reported fire in half. Despite this, each year nearly 3,000 people die in U.S. home fires – many times because there was no smoke alarm or the smoke alarm did not sound due to dead batteries or because it has been disconnected.
