If anyone is out and about on Friday, Nov. 2 and see Mt. Vernon Fire Department Capt. Chris Hurst, be sure and wish him a big happy 48th birthday. Another fireman who will be celebrating a birthday on Nov. 15 is MVFD firefighter Brad Baum who will be turning the big 30.
On a final note, the Mt. Vernon Rams Football team will be playing in the next round of state competition at 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 3 at Charleston. I’ve noticed several signs going up around town wishing the team good luck, and my luck and best wishes go with them. This is a group of great kids and athletes, who have been going out all season and giving the game their all. Be sure and let them know we’re supporting them all the way.
