Don’t Bury Technology in the Family Cemetery

Memorial Day is when many Americans take a step back to remember those who died in service to our country. Technology can bring us closer to those brave souls who died on the shores of Normandy or those laid to rest in Arlington National Cemetery, even if time and distance separate us.

Don’t let lengthy to-do lists or holiday activities such as family picnics and long weekend getaways cause you to forget the reason we observe Memorial Day.

Juneteenth Day History Celebration


Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19 that Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas. He brought news that the war had ended and that all slaves were now free. It had been two and a half years since President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of January 1, 1863 was official. Many stories were told as to why they had not known but none could be verified as the truth.

Monday, May 13 was a banner day for Louisville and Winston County.  NATRON WOOD PRODUCTS, our new industry was announced by Governor Phil Bryant.  Around twenty-five dignitaries and approximately 400  residents were on hand.  This company will create around 200 jobs.  This has come as a result  of the untiring efforts of The Mayor, the Board of Aldermen and Economic Development.  It takes many months of negotiations, calls, visits and correspondence to acquire a company of this magnitude. I long to see the day when our people will be seen going unto work.  This will impact our entire community. 
This is why it is so important to elect an experienced person with 16 years experience who has the willingness and the desire to keep our economy on the increase. I AM THAT PERSON.
Please return to the polls on June 4 and Re-Elect Frances Ball, Alderman at Large. Lets keeping Louisville moving forward.
