    Dear Editor,

        I would like to inform the people of the Oakdale area that the reason is, is no one is using it very much. They are willing to wait and see if it picks up.
    You can use the computer if you need to.
        It has been there for 35 years. I spoke for keeping it open in a meeting in Wartburg. If the use picks up they won’t close it.
        It is located by the fire hall in Oakdale.

  • Unicorn Fund thankful for efforts of MCRRC community service volunteers

    Dear Editor,

        We at the unicorn are so appreciative of the work the Morgan County Residential Recovery Court community service volunteers have done on our shop and on our new building. We are in the process of expanding and with the help of these men our building will be ready for us to occupy in the near future.
        The men are very skilled, hard working, very polite and courteous.

    Dear Editor,

        I just wanted to take the time to thank several people, organizations and community members for their recent support of the 3rd annual Take a Stand event against domestic violence.
        I first want to thank the American Legion Post #149 for not only providing the venue for our 3rd annual event but for also allowing us to partner with them during their monthly pancake breakfast where a share of the proceeds from that day were donated to the Avalon Center.

    Dear Editor,

        On behalf of the Deer Lodge Historical Society I would like to say THANKS A MILLION for everyone’s support during our November dinner and all who made donations in support of our Bicentennial Rifle give away. The winner was Tim Redmon. It takes a lot of work for any organization to survive and every dollar helps. Just a $5 membership fee makes a difference every year. Again, THANKS and if you have any questions or concerns please let me know at 423-663-7648.

    To the Editor,
    Once again we have the opportunity to be a blessing to someone else.
    Cash Express invites you to join with us in the celebration of giving.
    We will be accepting toys, coats, shoes (washable), clothing, and non perishable food items in many drop off locations in the area.
    We ask that all donations be received by Dec. 15 in order to provide a pizza party to the class in each grade that collects the most. The principal decides the winning class.

        I am writing to ask the voters and taxpayers who were not satisfied with the way our roads were taken care of during the recent week of bad weather to voice your concerns.
        I live about one mile outside the city limits of Wartburg and can access two roads to get to the major highways: Catoosa Road and Heidel Road (which is referred to by many as Racetrack Road).

    Barkley was a success, says Schooler


    The inaugural Barkley Fall Classic has come and gone. This was a tremendous coup for Morgan County in terms of tourism. Those who visited the Visitors Center were in awe of this beautiful building in our county. They stayed in our lodgings, ate in our restaurants, purchased gas, and bought souvenirs to take home. They all promised to return next year for the Barkley Marathon in the spring and/or the Fall Classic.

    Thank you,

    Reader disturbed by drugs, violence


    My husband and I moved to Tennessee about 15 months ago. We had hoped to spend our remaining years in some sense of peace. We find that our hope is for naught because we moved to a place of drugs, alcohol and fights.
