Martha Payton reports, “The Tira Methodist Church will be observing Candlelight Service on Wednesday night at six-thirty p.m.  Everyone is welcome.”

Leigh Ann Gammill reported having a 4-wheeler stolen last week. She said that one of her neighbors had the same experience. I am happy to report that the sheriff's department has notified us that the criminals have been apprehended and one of our motorcycles has been returned to us. The Gammill's 4-wheeler has been recovered, also, among other items that were taken by the same people. I would still encourage everyone not to let down their guard, but continue to keep a close eye on their possessions.
