Citizens make Caring Day great
Editor:
I would like to thank the residents of Hartselle for generously participating in our annual Caring Day. The city of Hartselle collected 2,214 canned goods. This count is not our final tally because canned goods are still being dropped off and Hartselle Junior High School has three recycle bins they will be filling until Nov. 21. Eighty-eight turkeys and three hams were donated by our merchants and purchased with money donated by civic clubs and businesses. All of your community efforts will make sure that needy families in the Hartselle area will have a meal for the holidays. All of this would not have been possible without your help. Thank you!
I would also like to thank the people that volunteered this year to make this event a success. A very special thank you goes out to Mayor Tankersley, Kenny Thompson, Bill Smelser and Mark Mizell. I would also like to thank Frank Miller, Harley Hopp and Clay Carter with the Park and Recreation Department. Derrick Woodall, Jeremy Griffith, and Shawn Woods also pitched in to help. A big thank you goes out to Carolyn Wallace with Hartselle Beautification Association, Nancy Phelps and Diana Sparkman who volunteered to follow the recycle trucks. Bill Zebley also volunteered his time to help follow the trucks and take the canned goods to The Caring Place. I would also like to thank Crestline School, Barkley Bridge, F.E. Burleson, and Hartselle Junior High schools for taking part in our event this year. Denise Taylor with Allied Waste Services, Carolyn Wallace with HBA, Betty Parker, and Virginia Alexander with The Caring Place helped to organize this event. Thank you all!

Others help with dog dilemma
Editor:
Hartselle people are great! This week my brothers and I, along with many of our friends, befriended a stray dog near our home on Lindsey Lane. "Max" is a happy, friendly, mixed breed dog who loves cats, dogs, kids, and having fun. Someone must miss him terribly.
Many wonderful people in our neighborhood have fed and played with Max since he found us last week.
Unfortunately, a very hateful, cruel-hearted person has threatened to kill Max (and our other pets), and now we must find him a permanent home where he will be safe and loved.
We have put an ad in the paper and put up fliers all over the Crestline area with the help of some really helpful and compassionate people: Charlotte and Peggy at Hartselle Exxon, a very nice man at Corum's who loves dogs too, Dexter and Ann Lindsey at Dexter's Auto Sales, Kroger, Ronnie Abercrombie, and the great neighbors near Crestline School. You are all awesome!
We hope to find Max a great home soon, and we hope our neighbor will remember the words of Jesus in Matthew 25: "Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me."
Thanks again to everyone who is helping us find Max a good home. There are some nice people in Hartselle after all.

Veterans deserve our appreciation
Editor,
My family and I want to thank Wal-Mart of Hartselle for the service they put on for the veterans on Veterans Day. It was just beautiful and wonderful.
I'm a widow, mother, sister of three brothers, and a daughter of veterans. So, I was shocked to see such a low attendance for the service.
You see more people at basketball, football and soccer games than I saw at the service for the veterans. If it wasn't for the veterans, you would not be free to go to those games.
Think about that the next time Veterans Day rolls around.
