  • Taking stock

    Jesus Christ

    Of all the Christian holidays, the greatest is Easter.  

    The rising of Jesus Christ from the dead is the bedrock of everything that we have faith in.

  • County saves on truck sales

    The Washington County Fiscal Court heard some good news Monday morning when it received an update from the auction company that sold its Mack trucks.

    The cost savings means the county paid $2,444 dollars for one year’s use of two Mack trucks with full warranties. Washington County sold both trucks for $296,000 in March.
