Dear Editor,

Recently we had a fire in our home near Blue. The dedication and response of the Lexington Volunteer Fire Department clearly minimized the damage from the fire to our house. We greatly appreciate these volunteers and their willingness to serve our community in such an unselfish manner. I was humbled to see their efforts first hand in action. There was some delay in finding the source of the fire, and therefore upon their request, I would like to ask all homeowners in the Lexington area to submit a blue print of their house to the fire department.

This information on file with them could help them better respond and provide quicker extinguishing of any fires that may happen in the future.

Thank you so much volunteers for what you do.

The Bailey Family Dear Editor,

This Fourth of July, Americans will toast the country’s independence with friends and family. Before these celebrations get underway, Mike Hopkins Distributing reminds adults to show their patriotism by designating a driver or skipper to keep everyone safe. You’ll join the millions of American adults who have been a designated driver or designated skipper, or been driven home by one.

Here are some additional tips for safe celebrating during the holiday weekend:

1. Buckle Up. Ask everyone to wear a seat belt or a life jacket.

2. Be an Attentive Driver. Always be in control and aware of those around you.

3. Don’t Speed. Resist the urge to speed by making sure there’s plenty of time to reach your destination.

4. Drink Responsibly. Adults who choose to drink should make responsible choices about when, where and how much.

Mike Hopkins Distributing is committed to keeping our nation’s roadways and waterways safe.

We can all do our part to make sure everyone has a fun and safe holiday. Remember, Responsibility Matters!


Mike Hopkins
