• 9-1-1 Phone in The New National Law Enforcement Museum

    The historic red 9-1-1 telephone which belongs to the City of Haleyville used for the first 9-1-1 phone call in the nation did not go to the Smithsonian as originally planned. Restrictions placed on the phone by the Smithsonian did not allow the city of Haleyville to “borrow” it back for special occasions. The phone found another home at the new National Law Enforcement Museum which opens this weekend in Washington. D.C. The Haleyville Area Chamber of Commerce President Mike Evans is in Washington for the grand opening celebrations. Mike had the privilege to present Clint Eastwood with one of the City of Haleyville 9-1-1 coin.

  • Empty Bowls Huge Success

    The 8th Annual Empty Bowls dinner was held Thursday evening at the Double Springs City Hall. A packed house enjoyed many different kinds of soups and took home a unique Winston County hand-made bowl. This annual event raises money for two non-profit organizations, Main Street Ministries and the Winston County Arts Council. Lots of first-timers and the hundreds who have made this a not to miss event enjoyed the many kinds of delicious soups and cookies and the chance to visit with friends. If you did not attend this year, make plans to go next October. It may be a year away, but you do not want to miss this great event.
