     This past week two classes were held on basic CPR at the Loretto Senior Center by firefighter Josh Ballard. I attended the class on Monday evening and was very pleased with the technique performed now to help keep one alive until help arrives after the 911 call. Talking to others that were at the Wednesday class said they were very impressed also.

  • Aug. 9, 2013 is a day that changed Jesse and Coury Osbourne’s lives forever.
    It’s the day their home on North Spalding Avenue in Lebanon was nearly destroyed by an electrical fire.
    No one was home when the fire started except their beloved cat Moe, who sadly didn’t survive.
    Every detail of that day is still very vivid in Coury’s mind. She was at work at Marion County High School when she got the terrifying news.
