Lakefront Property For Sale

SweetValley Is For Sale
About Sweetvalley:  When I was a kid my mother took my sisters and me to Grandma's house on Kentucky Lake. It was a waterfront 2 bedroom cabin back then with cracks in the walls you could see through. We ran up and down the hill to the lake to swim and ski. We fished, had weeny roasts, got sun-burned and more than anything we had great times together and made great memories. There a thousand stories my sisters and cousins and friends could tell about the times we spent there....  SweetValley is like that too. I bought it years ago to have a place on the lake near Grandma and Mom. We've had a lot of great times there too. Lots of fun, boating, swimming, cookouts, hangin' with friends and children. I never had children but a lot of my friends kids have fond memories of SweetValley and the good times we had.  My friends and family, like Grandma's house, made a lot of great memories there together. Grandma and Mom are gone now and I'm not a kid anymore so I'm ready to "pass the torch" so to speak. I'm hoping someone with kids or grand kids will get this place and build family love and memories like we did.

Free Smoke Alarms To Be Handed Out Saturday

14 hrs
Free Smoke Alarms To Be Handed Out Saturday
Buchanan, Tenn.—A door-to-door smoke alarm campaign will be conducted Saturday in the Buchanan and Paris Landing area.
It will be held from noon until 4 p.m. and representatives of the Paris Landing Volunteer Fire Department and other emergency responders will partner with the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s office will be going door-to-door handing out the free smoke alarms.
In April, five family members were killed in a house fire in the Buchanan area.
Paris Landing Fire Chief Reggie Coles said, “We want to spend a few minutes educating our residents about the dangers of fire and offer them free smoke alarms, which we will install while we are there. The smoke alarms are furnished at no charge by the State Fire Marshal’s office. All emergency personnel will be in uniform and all civilian volunteers will have proper documentation with them.”
All emergency services organizations in Henry County, as well as the Red Cross, local dhurches, the Amvets and the American Legion have been invited.
Coles said, “We see this as an opportunity for us to come together as a community to help prevent any further loss of life due to fire.”
The Paris Landing Senior Citizens Center will be offering refreshments for everyone afterward.
