From where I sit Joe Marsk Our town has heroes, too Over at Thistle Ridge they're always boasting about the|r lo- cal heroes-ancestors in the'Rev. oluflonary War, congressmen, and an artist with pictures in the Metropolitan Museurm Well, we've got our loca! he- roes, too There was old Doc Turner, ~ho fought for years against the intolerance and bigotry that kept children from being vacci. ~atcd in our county. And Deacon Follensby, who fought for free pews in the churches; Jess Hackney, who campaigned for teaching hon- est history in schools; Wedd Towers, who fought the en- croachment of Prohibition in our county-and persuaded folks they wanted tolerance and mod- eration in place of a return to, lawlessness. You won't find monuments t@ these folks. Rut from where I sit, they're heroes in a causo that's pretty sacred In our town: the cause of freedom, tolera nccb and human dignity.
