Have You Ever Thought… What having a home means?

For some people, having a home means owning some property. A place that is yours. For others it may mean to rent or lease but it still grows to feel like home. Home is also a place for family. Home is a place where memories are made. It is a place of security, a place to step away from the world and feel you are "home". Someone has well stated it when they said, "Home is where they have to take you in whether they want to or not."

Have You Ever Thought… Who will help us make a difference in the appearance of our community?

Someone has said that two people are responsible for litter. The one who thoughtlessly created it and the one who passes it by. Our challenge is to find out how we can make our community look better to both those visiting and those who live here. It is not enough to be careful with what one does with their own litter, but how we can help clean up the litter that others create.

Stop in front of the Welcome Center on Clark Street and you will be welcomed to Mystic Falls, Virginia as well as Sparta, Mississippi from the "Heat of the Night."
