Just a heads up to my community. Last fall, Intercounty Electric’s clearing crew came through our area. Clearing for the electric lines is understandable and to be expected. Unnecessary and dangerous destruction is not. Down our road, several survey markers were badly damaged. The expense of...
The City of Willow Springs has just finished laying a sidewalk in front of my house on E. 4th St. I wanted the City and the residents of Willow Springs to know what a great job Mr. Kurt Kargel and his men did. Mr. Kargel has such work ethics and integrity, the City of Willow Springs should be...
This letter is in response to the letter posted on August 25th by Mr. Woolsey and Mr. Miller. First off, neither one of these men live in the city limits of Mountain View.  So the only thing they know is what they have been told by person that have an axe to grind.  Mayor Donnie Pruett, the...
Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. Matthew 10:16     Truly, the Church inhabits a very tenuous position in this secular world, and Christ's admonition to be "wise as serpents, and harmless as doves" has never...

Dear Howell County News,   Thanks to the Lions Club, the vintage caboose has been restored to its previous charm and glory. A great job of carpentry and painting by the artisans!  You make Willow Springs proud.  You have also honored those such as my father, his contemporaries, and...
As the mayor of Mountain View, I would like to address last week’s letter to the editor concerning the article Scorched Earth.  Mr. Reese’s statements are that of a bitter and disgruntled ex-employee. As with any story, it has grown and been distorted with time. This constant division in our...
Hosea 4:6 My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.     Today, I was reading the comments of a former...
