2014 fireworks and parade one to remember Print E-mail

The Pendleton County July 4th celebration was a great one thanks to so many who worked very hard to put it together. Children and adults lined up on Shelby Street to watch the parade go by and hurried to pick up the candy that was tossed out. Above is the float from Small World Day Care in Falmouth. This float took first place and was so patriotic. The fire work shows in both Butler and Falmouth were fantastic this year. They lit up the sky with all their colors. Thanks to those that were in charge of getting that together. More parade photos and celebration photos available. All parade photos by Jackie Vaughn.

Support Bryce Croley this month

By Karen Hyden, Reporter

Miracles sometimes  come in small packages and at 1 lb. 15 ozs., Bryce Croley was definitely a miracle baby. Bryce and his identical twin brother, Cohen, who weighed 2 lbs 12 ozs, were born to Matt and Casey (Wood) Croley on May 17, 2009.

Casey found out at 16 weeks of her pregnancy that her babies had Twin to Twin Transfusion Syndrome (TTTS). This is a disease of the placenta that affects identical twin pregnancies. The shared placenta contains abnormal blood vessels, which connect the umbilical cords and circulations of the twins. The common placenta may also be shared unequally by the twins, and one twin may have a share too small to provide the necessary nutrients to grow normally or even survive.
