County Liners were thankful the predicted ice storm last weekend was much milder than expected.  Folks are getting the coronavirus vaccination and are looking forward to being more active as our state positive test rate continued to decrease to 6.1% as of last Monday.

As our photo shows, our local churches provide help such as ramps to folks in need. The churches continue to have limited worship and Bible study services with medical directives and online viewing as previously stated.  Tonight (Thursday) Bible study at 7 p.m. at Clarksbury United Methodist Church will feature Chapters 6 & 7 of Revelations. Always, contact church offices or a member for updated changes.

Our community sends get-well wishes to Jean Cleary, Curtis Safriet, and Ann Stroud.  Jean fell down the steps, broke her ankle, and is recuperating at home.  While outside his vehicle parked on a roadside; Curtis was hit by another vehicle, received severe lacerations on his head and face, and also suffered severe leg injury as his leg was pinned in the wreckage. He is recuperating at home and receiving physical therapy. Ann is recuperating at home after having surgery at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Shirley P. Lewis remains in rehab at Bermuda Village in Advance but is hoping to come home this week.  Faye Stroud continues to rest at home while under treatment for cancer.

Join us in prayer for the Lord’s divine healing and blessings upon Jean, Curtis, Ann, Shirley, Faye, and  others who are having health problems.  Remember in prayer Priscilla and Billy Holmes and the family of Rex Campbell.  Priscilla’s father Charles Steele, Sr., died Thursday of last week.  Rex, son of the late Durand and Lotus Cornelius Campbell, died Wednesday of last Week.
