NEW OFFICER AT GREENVILLE PD

The Greenville Police Department is getting a new officer.  We spoke with Greenville Police Chief Lou Lorton who said they are excited to have Stephan Neese, a local man, as the newest member of the Greenville Police Department.  He has been pretty busy recently with paperwork and is scheduled to enter the Police Academy in January 2012.  Neese will replace an officer who resigned recently, bringing the Greenville PD back up to full force. 


SALVATION ARMY CONTINUES TO RAISE MONEY

Wayne Pierce of the Bond County Salvation Army said people of Bond County have again been very busy and generous with their Salvation Army donations this year.  Hundreds of people have been ringing the bells at various locations throughout the county.  To date, $11,000.00 has been donated.  85% of all funds raised locally by the bell-ringers stays in our community.  The Bond County chapter of the Salvation Army is an arm of the St. Louis Salvation Army and is a part of the Bond County Ministerial Alliance.  The Ministerial Alliance treasurer dispenses funds to those in need.  Wayne urges you to continue to give as you are able, to help them reach their goal of $15,000.00.  If you want to give my check in the mail, send it to Frank Joy at the Bradford National Bank in Greenville.  Last year, the Salvation Army bell ringers raised more than $20,000.00.
