Commission backs ‘the rock’

first_img By Jaine Treadwell Messenger Photo / fileGrassroots efforts to save the Rock Building received a vote of confidence from county commissioners on Monday as they decided to set aside $50,000 for the effort in the 2015 budget.The grassroots fundraising efforts to restore the Rock Building in Troy for use by all people of Pike County got a big boost from the Pike County Commission on Monday.At the commission’s budget hearing, commissioners agreed to designate $50,000 in capital improvement funds in the proposed 2015 budget toward the Rock Building restoration project.Commissioner Robin Sullivan said if the commissioners were serious about their support of the project, it was time to make a commitment to it. The “Save the Rock Building” steering committee is continuing its efforts to find funding sources for the restoration project.“The committee is exploring grant opportunities and ways to raise funds locally,” Helms said. “We aren’t going to try to sell cupcakes on the corner. We need to have events that will bring in more than a few dollars. Right now, we are working toward an outdoor concert that would attract a wide range of people. But that won’t happen until sometime in the spring.”In the meantime, Helms said the fundraising efforts will be directed toward donations to “the Rock.”“Those who want to ‘Save the Rock’ are encouraged to make a $10 donation to the Rock Building fund and receive a commemorative card in recognition of their donation,” he said. “Right now, we have about 700 people who have donated more than $13,000 to saving the Rock. With the commitment from the Pike County Commission that will take us to more than $63,000 and that’s a good start. We want to keep the momentum going so we encourage everyone to get involved with saving the Rock.”Donations to the Rock Building Fund may be made at Home Gallery or at the Pike County Chamber of Commerce both in downtown Troy and at Mobley Business Service in downtown Brundidge. Commission backs ‘the rock’ David Helms, who is spearheading the efforts to restore the Rock Building, attended the budget hearing and expressed to the commissioners the importance of preserving a piece of Pike County that is historic in structure and was the center for county activities for several generations. The building was a 1939 WPA project and was constructed using field rocks collected from every corner of the county. The work was done by local people who desperately needed and wanted to work.“This initial pledge by the Pike County Commissions is certainly a tremendous boost to our fundraising efforts,” Helms said. “I got the message the commissioners are committed to the project and to seeing it through. I came away from the budget hearing feeling very positive about the future of the project.“Going in, the committee members knew that we weren’t going to be able to raise the money overnight. I feel like now we can shift into second gear and move ahead with confidence that the restoration of the Rock Building is going to happen.” Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Book Nook to reopen Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration Email the author You Might Like Getting ready for the game: rec league practice (PHOTO GALLERY) Recreation League Football practice met Tuesday night at the Troy Recreation Center gym.

And I just have to believe that clubs, civic groups, schools – all organizations – will want to be a part of preserving this historic building that was built by the people of Pike County, for the people of Pike County.” Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Latest Storieslast_img read more

Each player raises funds to cover the week-long, overnight training camp at Hebron Academy. Any additional monies raised go to support the Shriners’ Hospitals, which are a leader in the treatment for juvenile burn victims, orthopedic disabilities and injuries, spinal cord injuries, and cleft lip and palate disorders.Candage has already collected enough to cover the camp expenses, but he and his family are continuing to raise funds to support the hospitals and give MDI and Hancock County more visibility at the game.

Copa America: Colombia hand Brazil first defeat since World Cup

first_imgBrazil were handed their first defeat since last summer’s World Cup, with defender Jeison Murillo’s first-half winner salvaging Colombia’s Copa America hopes.Jose Pekerman’s team suffered a surprise defeat to Venezuela in their opening game of the tournament, but got their campaign back on track with a well-deserved and hard fought win over Brazil – only the third of their history.David Luiz was dropped from the Selecao lineup following his mistake in the opening clash against Peru, with PSG teammate Thiago Silva come in as his replacement. Regardless, Colombia started brightly and pressed a shaky-looking Brazil backline. Defender Murillo scored what turned out to be the winner after 35 minutes, scrambling home a finish from close range after an Juan Cuadrado freekick.Goalscoring opportunities were at a premium, but Colombia deserved their lead at the break. Neymar – who will miss the final group game after picking up a booking – and co. continued to toil after the break, with Philippe Coutinho coming on for the second half as Dunga looked to give his side more invention in attack.But the Liverpool playmaker’s introduction didn’t have the desired effort, with Brazil struggling to create opportunities throughout, although Roberto Firmino should have netted an equaliser in the second half.However, the Hoffenheim man blasted over with an empty goal gaping – as Colombia avenged their World Cup defeat to Brazil last summer. –last_img read more
