Governor issues Safer At Home order

The order takes effect at 11:59 p.m. Tuesday and lasts through April 14. Only essential businesses are to continue operating, and residents are urged to stay home as much as possible.

"This is not a mandated 'shelter in place' order, because it remains deeply important to me to protect personal liberties," Lee said.

Simply, place a teddy bear in your window, or any visable area that can be seen from the road! Thats it!

There is also an "event" on Facebook where you can post your address or town that way drivers can know where to find these bears. This is going on through Friday the 27, so get to hunting folks and see how many bears you can find! :)

Food- Rite Trenton Fights Back

To help with the dangerously low blood supply and the cancellation of several blood drives, Food Rite, Trenton ( 45 Bypass location), has graciously agreed to host a blood drive Monday, March 16 from 1-6 . Donors get t-shirts. PLEASE GIVE BLOOD IF YOU CAN! The threat of coronavirus should not prevent healthy people from giving blood. In fact, blood donors are needed now, more than ever, to make up for cancellations of blood drives and the lack of blood donor support during the past weeks. If people do not give blood, patients will die. The entire nation is facing a blood shortage. BUT, YOU can help our West Tennessee community by giving blood! Thank you.
