GREENVILLE FIREFIGHTERS RESPOND TO ROCKY MOUNTAIN ROAD
Greenville firefighters responded to a residence in the 800 block of Rocky Mountain Road Tuesday morning. According to the fire report, the roof was still wet from Monday’s storms. Once the sun hit the roof Tuesday morning, the water began to evaporate, causing steam. This steam was mistaken for smoke. There was no fire. Firefighters were on the scene approximately 30 minutes.

NEW LOCATION FOR BOND COUNTY RELAY FOR LIFE
The 2013 Bond County Relay for Life will be Friday, September 13. John Goldsmith told WGEL when he and Randy Alderman agreed to co-chair the event, they agreed they needed to find a better walking track. In previous years, the event was at the Greenville College track. In more recent years, the relay has been hosted at the Bond County Fairgrounds. Goldsmith said the fairground’s facilities have been fantastic. However, one of the major issues they heard from people was walking on the road was uncomfortable. Goldsmith said more people may be encouraged to participate in the walking aspect of the Relay for Life since the event has been moved to Greenville High School. You still have a chance to form a team for this year’s relay. For more information, call 664-9272.
