    Just after 6 a.m., Carolyn Phillips was driving her husband and three sons north on State Road 73 near Marianna., Fla., when a Ford Explorer came across the center line and struck their 2007 Volkswagen Passat head-on, sending it airborne and off the roadway, where it came to rest upside down.

  • Firing up the band

    Firefighters from the Shelby County Fire Department “fired up” the Shelby County High School Band with a shower from their hose during a 2-week band camp, which typically operated from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. each sweltering day. The camp attracted 45 musicians in grades 8-12 under the direction of David Roslon. The high expectations for excellence matched the high temperatures so the firefighters gave a cool down before they fired up their instruments for a parent concert. They will enter fall competitions and perform for home football games.
