'Star-Spangled Banner': the anthem that challenges the meek and the mighty

October 22, 2012

By Lynda Hollenbeck

I was put on the spot a few days ago when I was asked to sing the national anthem for an event commemorating the end of the long career for a friend.
County Clerk Freddy Burton, whom I've known since 1970, is calling it quits. He's done a great job in that office and is probably one of the best-liked politicians around.

Caldwell faculty members take part in Race for the Cure to honor their own

October 22, 2012

When Caldwell Elementary School's team for the Race for the Cure participates in the annual Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, this is not simply a group of people supporting a worthy cause.
The team includes three members who have had up-close-and-personal encounters with breast cancer, the disease for which the Komen cause originated. These are cancer survivors Janelle Haley, who taught third grade at the school; Peggy Chennault, a fifth-grade teacher whose specialty was science; and Dot Jones, who was the school librarian. All are now retired and say they are leading healthy lives.
