Winter's Artwork

WINTER’S ARTWORK — Messenger outdoor columnist Brent Callicott visited Reelfoot Lake Wednesday and photographed what happens when brisk winds and waves combine with bitterly cold temperatures — the creation of winter ice sculptures in the cypress trees. While the weather is too cold for most humans — other than hunters — Callicott said he saw a pair of mature bald eagles during his visit to Kiwanis Park on Highway 21. While temperatures are expected to climb into the 30s for the next couple of days, bitter cold weather remains in the forecast with some nighttime lows reaching single digits.

UNION CITY, TN. Forty years ago, Sharon Winsett began her career in banking at the former Old & Third National Bank. She worked in what was called the “note window,” where she took payments and posted them manually on the back of notes before putting them into the computer. She went on to become a secretary and then an administrative assistant before assuming her role as a Loan Officer in 1985. Old & Third National Bank eventually became Commercial Bank and Trust Company (CBTC), but Sharon continued her work with the bank.

“I have seen many changes in banking and been through many transitions,” said Ms. Winsett. “From government regulations to the way customers handle their business, banking is different now than it was when I started to work. Technology has had a major impact on the banking industry.”

Ten years ago Kevin and Stacie Herrell opened the doors of Higher Ground Coffee Company for the first time. Thursday, Dec.14, marks the 10th anniversary of Higher Ground’s Union City location. From 7 p.m. until closing time, the community is invited to join them in celebrating this milestone at the coffee shop.

“Everyone is welcome! There will be food, fun, live music, door prizes, some of our favorite snacks and of course, lots of coffee,” Stacie said. “A couple of our biggest prizes will be a giveaway for free coffee for one year and a $250 Higher Ground Coffee Company gift card! The winner can either use the coffee for a year prize for one drink per week or for one bag of our locally roasted craft coffee each month, but you must be present to win.”
