  • Court receives budgets from four special districts

    The Marion County Fiscal Court accepted the 2013-14 budgets from three local special districts and from the Lincoln Trail Area Development District during its June 6 meeting.
    Special districts have received added attention in the past year, in part because of efforts by State Auditor Adam Edelen to raise awareness about those districts. Edelen’s office created a website with information about the districts, and during the 2013 General Assembly, legislation was approved with the intent to further increase the availability of information about those districts.

    There is an old saying; an elephant never forgets. Well, neither does a community. On Tuesday, Field A1 at Graham Memorial Park was renamed as Jo. Bell Field in honor of the late Lebanon police chief. A large group of people in attendance heard Bell’s fiancé Susan “Sissy” Yokum, as well as Mayor Gary Crenshaw and City Administrator John O. Thomas, spoke about Bell’s love for youth sports. A large sign in his honor sits behind the fence in the outfield, and a plaque was installed at Graham Memorial Park.

  • Ahead of the curve

    An offhand comment at a routine checkup may have saved Richard Crum’s life.
    His comment led to an ultrasound, which led to two surgeries, which left him with less than one fully functioning kidney.
    The story of how Crum, 67, got to this point begins last October, when he went to the doctor for a regular check of his cholesterol levels. His physician, Dr. William Kirk, wasn’t able to see him that day, so Crum met with Physician’s Assistant Patricia Pulliam instead.
