• Risse is right choice for city council

    I write on behalf of my friend Sean Risse. I have known Sean since coaching him as a youth in basketball.

    My current civil duties require me to make tough decisions and I can’t stress the importance of these decisions. Sean, with your support, can step into a similar role and I have confidence he too can make the tough decisions that will come.

  • Thanks for all of the fall festival help

    We want to thank everyone who helped make the Fall Festival at Rome successful. The News gave us advertising ahead of the event, Nobles worked with us purchasing the food, and to the visitors who came to eat or listen to the band or buy items from the country store.

  • What a grand day it was in Bristow Oct. 11

    A special thank you to God for such a beautiful day for the Bristow car show Oct. 11.

    If you were not there, you missed a nice day with friends from far and near who came back to claim their roots and those who live close by.

    The town was clean and looked really nice. It took a lot of time and labor to make things happen.

    The food was great and music and every other thing seemed to fall in place. And there were so many beautiful cars, trucks and other classic vehicles that came from everywhere.

  • Rome firefighters grateful for support

    The Rome Volunteer Fire Department would like to personally thank the community for all their hard work and donations for our recent fundraiser

    Without all of the help we get, we could not keep operating. Thank you, Jim Krutz, for the wagon rides everyone seems to enjoy. A big thank you to Tony Rothrock and Jerry Willis for the great music. Thank you to the groups who stayed up all night and cooked the meat and cut it up. You are appreciated.

    We especially want to thank all who came up on such a lovely day and had dinner with us. We are grateful for all of you.
