Motorists, please respect funerals
For the driver who almost caused a major accident on East Innes Street near Walmart, what were you thinking?
When a funeral procession goes by and you see a police car leading all the family members in their cars and you see other people stopped, don’t drive through the green light. The funeral procession is allowed to go through the lights, even though the light is red on their side and your light is green. You could have caused a major accident. Instead of burying one person, you could have sent other people to the hospital.
I saw you yelling and pointing to the light. Use some common sense.

Heaven on Earth
Sunday afternoon at Cecil and Nan Whitley’s home “heaven came down and glory filled my soul.” The outpouring of love and support for my brother, Bob Lowman, was most certainly a piece of heaven on Earth. So many people gathered to laugh, cry and share memories and words of support for Bob and his family. Thanks to all of you for coming. I feel so proud and grateful to have grown up with two older brothers. God blessed my family from the beginning of my life and continues to bless us everyday.
Thank you again to Cecil and Nan; Debbie Suggs, a lifelong friend; Faith Soda Shop; Brenda, Andrew and Toni Welch; Wendy and Donnie Pressley, and Rowan County American Legion fans and friends.
Your love and support are beyond words.
Please continue to keep us in your thoughts and prayers.

Prayer suit costs
The three people who do not like the Christian prayers offered at government meetings and are named in the ACLU lawsuit should pay for the legal action, and not the taxpayers.
Thiss all about money anyway. The ACLU depends on people like them.
