  • Team put others first

    Editor:

    I would like to compliment Chief Ronnie McCane, George Griffith and the entire Trimble County disaster management team.

    During the recent wind storm, they provided traffic control due to power outages to the traffic signals, risking personal injury when they needed to be at home taking care of their own properties.

    Trimble County should be proud of this fine group of men and women.
