Showcasing good in county

Published 9:43am Tuesday, January 14, 2014

As the erratic winter weather seemingly changes by the day and sometimes within the day, it has not hindered the good things happening in our county.

Here are some of the highlights for this week.

• Three Rock Hill students were selected and participated in the 2014 Capital One Bowl in Orlando, Fla. Rock Hill High School sophomore Shelby Dalton along with Rock Hill Middle School 7th graders Sarah Shope and Haley Hackney all performed during the All American halftime show. We want to congratulate those three for being selected and representing Lawrence County in Florida.

• The Briggs libraries within the county have slated various workshops to help others with a different take on recycling. On Jan. 30, the South Point at 2 p.m. and Proctorville branch at 6 p.m. will help others create scarves through the use of techniques by means of old T-shirts. The Ironton branch on Feb. 6 at 6 p.m. and 2 p.m. on Feb. 20 at the Chesapeake branch and 6 pm at the Proctorville branch will teach how to make rose bouquets from old books. We applaud the Briggs libraries for providing these workshops to introduce fun alternatives for recycling.

• Master Sgt. Andrew Campbell was named Senior Noncommissioned Officer (SNCO) of the Year for the 773rd Civil Engineer Squadron. Campbell has been in the Air Force since 2003, and we commend Master Sgt. Andrew Campbell for his service to our country and his accomplishment.
