A good time to honor good friends

By Staff

If you missed the Franklin County Chamber of Commerce award banquet Tuesday night, you missed a good time.
A lot of good people where honored; a lot of good people I'm proud to call friends.
Community Spirit Bank was named Business of the Year. With 100 years of service under its belt, it's easy to see why.
Scotty Kennedy and Jane Williams were honored for their service to the community, along with Suzanne Langcuster, Volunteer of the Year.
Suzanne and her husband, Cecil, are two of the finest people I know. I was happy to see Mrs. Langcuster accept that plaque. I know she deserves it. She may never know how well she keeps my dinner table full with her fine recipes.
The Red Bay Centennial Committee, Phil Campbell First Baptist and Country Cottage were honored for their efforts to beautify our landscape.
Each of these organizations has done a terrific job to make sure passersby are presented well-manicured greenery.
Tiffin Motor Homes was presented with the Excellence in Growth Award. They're a nationwide name-brand. It's hard to beat that.
The Alabama Center for Advanced Woodworking Technology was dubbed the county's Best Kept Secret. If you've never been there, it's truly a showplace.
I would imagine it's what God's workshop must look like.
Clark Pulley won Industry of the Year. Terry Moore is a good friend of my family, and I was glad to see his company recognized as well.
Finally, Bob Rogers was named the recipient of the Franklin County Development Authority's Service and Dedication Award. Bob is one of the most active and civically-engaged people I know.
There are thousands of people who are better off because of something Bob Rogers did or helped get done. Most of them don't even realize it.
My hat's off to Cheryl Bradford and Sherye Price who put the banquet and program together. It was a job well done.
And in closing, I would like to welcome Bro. Barry Holcomb to Russellville.
As he begins his sermon this morning at First Baptist Church, I hope he realizes he's in a great place full of great people. The short list I've noted above is only a small handful of the dedicated, hard-working and caring people Franklin County has to offer.
