Lynn's only bank to close

The Lynn branch of BankFirst, pictured above, will be closing its doors on December 31.
LYNN - Lynn town officials and residents have expressed a good deal of concern, after receiving a 90-day notice that their branch of BankFirst will be permanently closing at the end of the business day Dec. 31.

New park planned

DOUBLE SPRINGS   -  Many in Winston County may take the name Double Springs for granted as the county’s seat, while others through the years have questioned the origin of its name.
The  donation of  half an acre of land from BankFirst to the Town of Double Springs will be used for a park to celebrate the history of the town -- which received its name from  natural dual springs of water located in the area where the park will be located off Highway 195.
