Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

A lady became ill and checked into the hospital for tests. The results came back and the doctor walked into her room and said, “Ma’am, I’m afraid I have some bad news. You have rabies. You better make out your will as soon as possible.”

The lady said, “Oh, I haven’t started my will. This is a list of people I’m going to bite as soon as I get out of here.” Read More»

Special to The Citizen

In the summer of 2012, school teacher Cindy Holland suddenly lost her husband to pancreatic cancer and faced a myriad of home repair issues. Hank and Kara Lane organized a small group from Legacy Christian Church and a circle of friends to help put a much needed new roof on Holland’s house.
