Letter the the Editor

Dear Editor,

We are very thankful to Alabama Power and all of the crews that worked long hours to restore power and clear the roads after the storm last Thursday.

It was very organized the way Alabama Power and all of the utility companies joined together to restore power across the county.

A special thanks to Brach White, the headmaster of Pickens Academy, for allowing the power company to use their parking lot to park all the utility trucks.

We all need to pay more attention to the things that all the volunteer fire departments do for us. They were out in the driving rain clearing roads in every town. They all need more volunteers because there is only a few that show up on calls. Please contact your local fire department and thank them, but most of all consider joining them, as they need more help.

Thanks to everyone that helped,

Carrollton Mayor Mickey Walker
