City owned downtown buildings to remain vacant

By Dennis Phillips

 

Advertising for bids to sell three downtown properties, the Hearne City Council received two replies. Up for bid were the properties located downtown at 202, 204, and 206 4th Street. The previous Hearne Council of 2015 gutted and began preparations to use these buildings as a community education center. That proposal has since died by vote of the current council, which agreed to seek bids to sell off the property, which is no longer on the tax rolls. The appraised value of all three properties is $104,200.00.

Hearne Christmas tradition revived

By Kent Brunette

 

There was a hubbub of activity in the middle of the Magnolia and Fourth Street intersection this week. The Christmas tree was getting put up and decorated. Many of us remember this festive tree in the road. With our eyes all aglow and noses pressed against the window glass in the back seat of our gold Ford Galaxy, circling the Christmas tree was a common request. As dad carefully maneuvered the car around it, we marveled at its branches and decorations. The next time the family got back in the car, the obligatory trip around the Christmas tree was made.

It’s beginning to look at lot like Christmas—At least at the CPS Board

Every year about this time the CPS Board of Robertson County goes into hyper mode to make sure all Robertson County children in foster care get the Christmas they need. Being away from parents, siblings, community, and neighborhood schools, kids in CPS care often have very little to be happy about at Christmas. But they can make a wish list and the folks back home can make wishes come true.
