So, naming the road was a no brainer. I got with Ray and we got the ball rolling.“We got 110 signatures on the petition to name the road in memory of Rex and it was a unanimous vote by the commissioners. Now, we’ve got to know what to put on the signs and get them ordered.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Goodson said Locklar was known for his love of bluegrass music, but he was also an icon of the Henderson community.“I don’t care where you went to bluegrass festivals, when people found out where you were from, they always asked if you knew Rex Locklar,” Goodson said. “Rex was known all over for the bluegrass festivals he put on. And, he had that store right on the road and there was always somebody sitting out there on the porch with Rex. I’d go by and sit with him and he could tell you some stories.”For 44 years, “Old Rex” hosted bluegrass festivals each October and April at the old Henderson Schoolhouse. Pickers, grinners and toe-tappers came from hundreds of miles to be apart of Rex’s Bluegrass Festivals.Locklar died on Feb. 23, 2014. His contributions to bluegrass in Alabama were recognized by the State Legislature.

He and Commissioner Ray Goodson got the process started. Rex would be humbled by it.”The naming of County Roads 2262, 2290 and 2276 will not affect E-911 numbering. The memorial signs will be placed at each end of the stretch of roadway. About half of the roadway is in District 4 and half in District 6. The funding for the signs will come from Commissioners Goodson and Jacksons’ discretionary funds.

Hoffarth: Bad blood between Taylor Swift and LA Kings fans

first_imgYes, it’s that same cheesy piece of felt that Kobe Bryant felt he needed to personally deliver during one of her concert dates in August and somehow was put up into the rafters for all to smirk at — especially the banner-less Clippers.At the very least, it might even please the Kings’ commoners if it was simply covered up, which sounds more like something that a mom would be muttering after accompanying her teen to a Miley Cyrus concert.This tailor-made #TakeTheBannerDown movement comes to light as a recent espnW.com investigation uncovered the reasons why other sports teams were suffering horrific tailspins following Swift performances at their venues. Thankfully, Drake seems to be off the hook now.Don’t believe us. Connect the dots yourself and there’s no question the Houston Astros, Washington Nationals and San Diego Padres suffered inhumane damage after a visit by the “most popular human alive” today (those are the words of a GQ headline).What other reason can there be for the Kings to start this season with two measly goals in three home losses going into Friday night? With everything else on the L.A. sports landscape crumbling around us — the Dodgers’ playoff excuses and the USC football coaching and AD leadership issues lead our list for FEMA submission — we’re now being sent all kinds of urgent advisories that our greatest nightmare truly begins and ends with …Taylor Swift?Never in our wildest dreams.Swift justice is needed, insist the Kings fans carrying their social media pitchforks and Change.org petitions to have a banner honoring the pop star immediately removed from inside Staples Center. Superstitions, sorcery, dame fate.And, somehow, this all leads back to the Cubs.They are predestined to win the 2015 World Series because it’s been prophesied in a “Back To The Future II” reference when the movie came out in 1989.Yet, there’s Swift’s “1989 Tour” we’re all trying to delete from the calendar.Just another evil coincidence, McInfieldFly?• Wouldn’t you think the Cubs actually wish they’d allowed Swift to play a few gigs at Wrigley this summer? So they’d have a built-in excuse to add to billy goats and black cats when this postseason run comes to another depressing conclusion right before Halloween?• Remember that Sept. 28 AC/DC concert at Dodger Stadium, right after the Sept. 25 show at San Francisco’s AT&T Park? Of course, it’s why the Giants did not repeat at the World Series champs — it’s a long way to the top. And why the Dodgers continue on this highway to hell. Let’s keep a stiff upper lip next time you pile nine guys on the right side of the infield.• The Donnie Baseball ethos, pathos and logos that apply to the current Dodger Way of Winning apparently was not enough to carry a team of $197 million in active salary (not counting the $20 mil paid to guys on the DL and another $85 mil to guy who aren’t on the team any longer, which adds up to north of $300 mil).But this was a roster painfully reliant during the regular season on an abundance of solo home runs and even more walks to generate runs. How was that supposed to work in the postseason to support a couple of Cy Young candidates who, despite their best efforts, couldn’t do it all?We’re not trying to give Don Mattingly any huge benefits of the doubt — his decision not to start Chase Utley in the leadoff spot for Game 3 at the very least to rattle Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and stir up the mob scene at Citi Park was maybe the un-turning point in the series.Perhaps that thinking is part of the reason why Mattingly’s teams since 2011 have won at a .551 clip in the regular season but just .421 in later October.Yet with all semi-respect to hitting coach Mark McGwire, how does he seem to get a whiff-less pass here? Because we’re all afraid he’ll beat us up when it’s pointed out there’s a tragic flaw in the Dodgers’ production with RISP?We spotted Mickey Hatcher out there before Game 5 of the Dodgers-Mets game, as the ceremonial catcher. Why wouldn’t his grind-it-out approach to offense be what the Dodgers are in desperate need of going forward?• The Angels, who just let Don Baylor go as their hitting coach, are about to hire another former Dodgers grinder in Dave Hansen to take that spot. Why wouldn’t Mike Scioscia welcome that?• Daniel Murphy is a free agent after this season? And the Dodgers couldn’t squeeze another infielder onto the roster for 2016 if Howie Kendrick, Jimmy Rollins and Utley vanish?• For all the yapping that was going on in the Dodgers’ dugout in the third inning, did Andre Ethier deserve any scolding in the fourth inning for catching the foul ball down the right-field line that allowed Murphy to tag up and score the tying run? Ethier lets it drop, Zack Greinke likely strikes out d’Arnaud and then gets Conforto to end the inning score-free.Or will second- and third-guessing everything that happened Thursday night leave you even more confused about why you actually bought that “Dodgers NL West Champs!” T-shirt that just went on sale?• Visit Dodgers.com today to see the clickable headline that reads “2016 Season Ticket Wait List.” They list the 30 different seat-per-game prices, ranging from $120 a pop for the front-row field box VIP, to the $9 top deck. The fine print: “Prices and benefits subject to change in 2016.”Change, for the better?• Sufferin’ succotash — Steve Sarkisian sadly succumbs at Southern California and Steve Spurrier suddenly splits at South Carolina.Clear away the spit, and as a potential free agent college football head coach, your agent insists that you really should consider the opening at USC.Isn’t the first response likely to be: Which one?Followed by: Why?center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
