Fire Fighters Run Around The Bay

Reservoir area fire fighters gathered at the station on Spillway Road Sunday, the beginning point of a run around Pelahatchie Bay.

The run was a tribute to the heroes of 9/11.

 First a prayer

A group photo

And they're off.

Really hope you take a look at yourself Anonymous! Personal attacks over an anonymous web posting are petty and childish. You obviously have personal issues. I will say a prayer for you that whatever your personal problems may be that you are able to work through them. I also hope that you are the epitome of health!! Cast not the first stone............

Scott has dedicated his life to this community and is a great chief.

Bobby I have met Scott and know of his long dedicated service to our community. My comments were in no way directed at Scott but at the anonymous poster that personally attacked him. I am proud of our fire fighters and their leaders. We have a great value at a bargain price when it comes to the RFD!

Mike...anonymous it a freedom of speech that I personally enjoy. I know Scott also. Could that have been a Joke as He does have a funny side to him. I have no personal issues and am in great shape to answer you questions. Maybe it was your prayer said to me that helped.

Mike Source said...

I'm sorry I didn't take it as a joke. Wasn't clear to me that it was intended to be one. Yes he has a tremendously funny side to him which is one of the things that make him so likeable. Glad I may have helped in some way. Sorry I did not see the humor in your post.

Mike,
Agreed...Scott is a great guy and has been and continues to be a blessing as chief for the Rez Fire Dept. I, from personal experience, know the entire Rez Fire Dept are incredible folks and do their often thankless job to the utmost professionalism.
Secondary, it's far too easy for nameless, faceless 'anon' posters as well as posters with a gmail accts monikers (see Kingfish and Kapt.Kangaroo) to post big comments without their actual person being represented behind the veil of mystery.
If comments were from their actual name, we could associate some weight and merit...but nebulous comments hidden behind that level of anonymity to pontificate these points are questionable in their very nature.
