Hello everybody, local news on the way after we send out our friends and neighbors their friendly birthday wishes from Gottrocks The Birthday Fairy.

Happy Birthday wishes to former Whitmire resident Billy (Bill) Lindler, Brad Burleson, Mike Cheatham, Tony English, and Lynn Greenway. Special wishes to William Worthy who celebrated his 86th birthday with family and friends. As we say, Whitmire Style — a delicious meal was served and a good time was had by all. My little handsome cousin, Rhett Gilliam celebrated his fifth birthday with his family and his favorite chocolate covered ice cream cake. A good time was had by all.

Happy Anniversary wishes to Cheryl and Danny Wayne Nichols.

One a sad note, we send our sympathy and best wishes to the families of former Whitmire resident Guy “Buck” Reed.
