with school report

Dear Editor:

My name is Carrie Denlinger and I am in sixth grade. I attend Brethren Heritage School in Modesto, Calif. We are doing state reports this year in our history class. I have chosen to do my report on your state of Alabama.

If you should happen to read this in your local newspaper, I would greatly appreciate receiving any information or items regarding your state. You could send pictures, tourist attraction information, trivia about your state, or anything that would cause me to be more familiar with your state.

Please send to: Carrie Denlinger, C/O Brethren Heritage School, 3549 Dakota Avenue, Modesto, CA 95358.

Thank you very much for helping me with my state report. I will appreciate any help you can give me.

Repaving work


Dear Editor:

 I would like to take this opportunity to thank the City Council of Athens and the Limestone County Commission for the repaving work on Nuclear Plant Road.  It was a long time coming.  

I feel like the widening and drainage work will make this road so much safer for everyone that travels this road and resides along this road. My mother lives on this road and I know she really enjoys being able to drive on a safe road. Again, thank you.
