Clemency ruling was wrong

Thank you Forsyth County Fire Department

I’d like to express my gratitude to the Forsyth County Fire Department.  It is truly a secure feeling to know that they are there any time and only minutes away.  On the morning of June 11, a group of children in our neighborhood found Dusty (my horse) stuck in a creek bed in a pasture.

Thank you for generous gift

The Bob Bowling Sunday School class from the First United Methodist Church goes out for lunch the first Sunday of each month. This past Sunday, 11 members of the class went to O’Charleys.
