Billy & Betty Walker

An upcoming Book – Featuring Grand Ole Opry Member ‘The Tall Texan’ BILLY WALKER and his loving wife ‘BETTIE’

Together we are standing on the horizon, the dawning of a New Year 2011 – a time to celebrate and reflect as life unfolds through the pages of a long awaited and overdue book now in progress.

Even in the beginning phase, plans were put on hold when on May 21, 2006 a tragic accident took the lives of Billy and Bettie along with their devoted and talented band members, Charles Lilly & Danny Patton.

Never dreaming in ‘A Million & One’ years this opportunity would come my way again, Kelly Brooks (daughter) contacted me several months later. In setting Continue reading “The Tall Texan” BILLY WALKER

It’s All About Location

Darlene G. Snyder

   The Christmas season, New Year celebrations and getting back into my regular routine, are some of my excuses for this late follow up article to one posted here on bereaonline.com in early December. I promised additional tips on preserving family memories. I actually have just one more to add, but it is a good one.

   No matter where you live, you likely can find something positive to say about the location. If you live in town, you might argue the fact that living in town is better than living in the country. Your argument could very well be that you are closely located to everything, there is delivery service in town and in the winter months, you don’t have to drive on snow covered roads for a great distance to get to work.

   On the other hand, those living in the country might argue Continue reading It’s All About Location

Beware of the Dangers from Alternative Heating Sources

EMA/CSEPP

 

   Richmond, Ky. (January 10, 2011) The Madison County Emergency Management Agency/CSEP Program reminds you that alternative power sources such as generators and kerosene heaters are commonly used during electrical power outages. Improper usage of these devices can cause carbon monoxide to build up in homes or garages, resulting in sudden illness and death.
   Seek medical attention if you suspect carbon monoxide poisoning and are experiencing symptoms of carbon monoxide poisoning. Early symptoms include headache, fatigue, dizziness, drowsiness, nausea, vomiting, chest pain and confusion. Individuals who are sleeping or who have been drinking alcohol may die from carbon monoxide poisoning before ever experiencing symptoms.

Safety Steps to Take When Using Portable Generators
• Properly follow manufacturer’s instructions carefully for Continue reading Beware of the Dangers from Alternative Heating Sources
