The mayor wasn't the one heading up the stupid "FEST" and its a lot of work with little reward and NO THANK YOU! Now shut up about our mayor, he has in-one-way-or-another helped everybody in this small town at some point. He is a "good ole' boy"!
yeah

I agree! Every one has their own problems and skeletons in their closets. Why dont people try to help themselves, rather than point out every thing wrong with everyone else? "Hickory Ridge Person".. I pray that you realize people have their own issues, without you having to point them all out.

I remember when there were a lot more kids and it was a great place to live. We could roam the neighborhood as long as we were home by the time the street lights were on.

I worked in the elementary school January through May, 1970, and lived with Erlene and was friends with Pat. We had so many good times. During the lunch hour we would play ping pong in the gym. I loved all the teachers and teachers' aides. They were all wonderful to me! Mr. Grover Cooper was the superintendent of Cross County at the time and hired me. The J.R. Foster family lived next door to Erlene.

My mistake. It was 1969 that I lived and worked there.
