ARLEY - Responsibility comes with town council seats, since each one represents the people and taxpayers of the town. An empty seat came open in the Arley council with the passing of Jerry Goodwin, a long-serving advocate of Arley, on Jan. 2. At the monthly town meeting on Monday, Feb. 1, Brian Fincher was voted to fill the vacant seat. The oath of office was administered by Tammi Farley, the town clerk, and Fincher took over his duties immediately. Goodwin took over the council seat after Fincher’s father, Kerry Fincher, retired.
WINSTON COUNTY - Rural volunteer fire departments are often at the mercy of their communities when it comes to funding, meaning departments not financially supported by councils or towns are struggling to stay afloat.
