JAIL TRUSTY GARDEN IN SIXTH CONSECUTIVE YEAR
  Sheriff Nick Weems announced this week that trusty inmates are raising a garden for the sixth year in a row.
  The late Sheriff Tommy Hickerson started this project in the spring of 2011, based on his previous employment at Turney Center Prison and on the success of other Sheriffs in Tennessee who already had a garden program in place.

VINNY: JUMP START YOUR LIFE, GET OFF THE COUCH
By STACY EVANS
Buffalo River Review

  Years ago I remember seeing a highly energetic, music-inspired young man be-bopping around Linden, singing a tune he just wrote.
  I loved pulling into our local Sonic not just for the awesome burgers he flipped on the grill but to see what fresh new musical idea he had popping around in that creative mind of his.
  While attending Perry County High School and showed off some fancy footwork dressed out in Viking football gear, he paced the field to a beat of his own and was always ready to play.
  In between quarter, “Big Vinny” motivated the team, no matter the score.
