Nov 30th, 2009 | By | Category: Entertainment, Events, Front Page

The Reese Project (TRP) plays lively music that rocks, pops & plays it cool; mesmerizing to watch with a funky, Monk-rocks out flavor like Bach having lunch with BB King. TRP includes something for every musical taste, from jazz, blues & funk to celtic & classical music. Mesmerizing to watch, this unique quartet combines flute, cello, guitar & drums.

Clyde (Mutt) Coble was the town’s only police officer from 1930 until he retired as Police Chief in 1950 and he was succeeded by Joe Mumma. Everyone knew him by his nickname; most people didn’t even know his real first name. He was called Mutt as a kid and it stuck for a lifetime.
