  • County judge thanked for assistance during ice storm

    To the editor,

    During the ice storm last week Millard Collins who is a diabetic was at my home and could not get home to get his medication. The doctor called him in a weeks supply but we could not get to Wal-Mart.

    I want to praise and thank our County Judge Alex Barnett. He went to Wal-Mart and picked the medication up and paid for it and brought it to my home. Thank you again.
