On behalf of the Escambia Fire and Rescue Squad, I would like to say thanks to the Escambia County Sheriff's Department, East Brewton Police Department, East Brewton Fire Department, D.W. McMillan Ambulance Service, Baptist Health Care Life Flight, Williams Memorial Chapel, J and J Towing, Bo Brantley and the W.S. Neal faculty and staff for making this year's “Prom Promise” a tremendous success.
This program has become bigger and better every year.
We would like to say a special thanks to Lisa Tindell and The Brewton Standard for their coverage of this annual event.
Also, I would like to thank all of the members of the Escambia County Fire and Rescue Squad that participated in this year's mock wreck.

Escambia County workers thanked for paving
When our son Jimmy worked for the Forestry Commission, he and the other workers called the broken tree limbs left dangling in the trees after Frederick, Ivan, Dennis and other storms, “Widow Makers,” as they turn loose and fall on you afterwards, without any warning whatsoever.
Some years ago Eb McCall was marking timber and just such a limb fell and struck him in the back of his head. He died from this a few days later and his wife was left a widow.
Is it an amazing coincidence that our strong March winds come just in time every year to pollinate our trees, or is this proof of divine planning and perpetuation? Certainly we would no longer have trees without this intervention.
Much obliged, county workers, for the brand new resurfacing of Appleton Road, and especially for the long curve at the bottom of Brewton Hill replacing the sharp curve. This is far better and so much safer for this much-traveled road.
