The ordinance allows anyone in the county to refuse to pay yearly dues to their volunteer firefighter departments. However, should a fire break out, the property or homeowner would be responsible for the entire cost of the firefighters response. Residents have until June 1st to opt out.</p> Wed, 25 Apr 2012 20:32:50 +0000 Drew Adams 17758 at http://wkms.org Hopkins County Firefighter Opt Out Exemption Volunteers Needed to Clean Civil War Sites http://wkms.org/post/volunteers-needed-clean-civil-war-sites <p>Civil War locations throughout Kentucky and Tennessee are participating in the 16th annual Park Day activities this coming Saturday.&nbsp; <a href="http://www.civilwar.org">The Civil War Trust</a> sponsored event involves volunteers in clean up and site restoration.&nbsp; In our region, Kentucky&rsquo;s Columbus-Belmont State Park and Tennessee&rsquo;s Fort Donelson National Battlefield and National Cemetery will host volunteers.&nbsp; Starting times for each location will vary.&nbsp; We&rsquo;ll have a link to a full list of sites at WKMS dot org.</p> Mon, 26 Mar 2012 12:48:30 +0000 Todd Hatton & AP 17366 at http://wkms.org Volunteers Needed to Clean Civil War Sites Volunteer Group Discusses Obion County Animal Shelter http://wkms.org/post/volunteer-group-discusses-obion-county-animal-shelter <p>A group of Union City voluneers met with Tennessee animal rights activists this week to discuss the establishment of a new animal shelter to serve Obion County.
