Is that popcorn I smell?

By Margaret Salvaggio

Allen Samuels redefines Hearne Dealership

By Dennis Phillips

For Marcus Ward, his new position as president of Allen Samuels in Hearne is all about the community. Before the sale of the dealership was completed Allen Samuels made an impact at the Robertson County Youth Live Stock Show in January spending $21,000.00 on auction items. “No one really noticed and that’s ok because it’s not about the recognition, it’s about the kids and the community,” said Marcus when asked about the auction.
