Long time Lincoln County (Blanche) resident, A.D. McLemore is proud to announce publication of his first novel. The Heart Matters -
Book 1 - The Story of EZ and AL
"It's part of my retirement therapy," states McLemore. "I've been writing this off and on for about 20 years and I can finally call it finished. It's classified as a romance novel, but it can be read multiple ways. It explores exactly what men think when dealing with women as well as basic men and women relationships but, actually, it's really just a fun story about relationships."
In the 1980's McLemore moved to the Blanche Community, the area where his parents grew up. Born and raised in Nashville, TN, his youth was spent as a Nashville musician. He spent almost 42 years on the road as a technical service engineer but recently had the opportunity to retire early and pursue writing.
As this is Book 1, there are two more books in the The Heart Matters series panned for the not too distance future.
"I promise," McLemore says, "it won't take me another r20 years to complete the next volumes. Book 2 is almost complete and Book 3 is outlined so, hopefully, it won't be too long." There is also a short story called Raggedy, I Hate Cats?, scheduled for release this summer.
The book is currently available on Amazon.com in eBook and paperback versions. More about McLemore can be found at the website Amazon.com/author/admclemore.

Ardmore Veteran's Group Again Offering Vidalia Onions
by Jack Watson
The Ardmore Veteran's Group would like to thank all who came out to enjoy our pancake breakfast last month. We fed between 200 and 300 people and had one of our best years. I know everyone says that, but in this case it's really true, honest. Thank y'all for supporting your local veterans!
As we did last year, we will be awarding two $1,000.00 scholarships selected from the applications we receive by April 30, 2019. One will go to a student continuing their education at a traditional college or university and one to a student seeking technical or vocational training. Applications are available at Ardmore High School in Counselor Autumn Rowe's office.
If we want to give money away, we have to raise it, so we're selling Vidalia onions again this year at $10.00 for a ten pound bag. These will be jumbo onions. We will have pre order sheets at the City & Town Halls, Ardmore, TN Library, CB&S bank, FNB Bank, Joy-Lee Beauty Shop and the 1st National Bank. If you can't make it to a sign up location or if you have a special order, call Ken Crosson at 256-874-4821. We don't need money when you sign up, just when you pick up your order.
We don't know the date yet as we are getting the onions from Vidalia, GA and the onions are still in the ground. We're afraid to guess a date since we all know what happens when we try to outguess Mother Nature. It's not pretty but we're hoping it will be around Mother's Day, May 12th.
Our next event will be at the Rodeo August 2nd and 3rd where we will be selling hamburgers and hot dogs cooked on site along with assorted drinks.
Again we thank you for the continued support of the Ardmore Veterans Group.
