If any of your children wish to look up to a local hero who worked hard for everything he achieved, it would be Alex Brown.  I have met Alex Brown three times and he is one of the nicest young men one could meet as well as being down to earth.  Apparently Joe Griffin who was involved in football (only as a fourth string) kept tabs on Alex and the first time he saw him he had to bring up a game in which Alex excelled.
The other day at Fat Belly’s, after seeing him and his big Ford Pickup at Ruby Tuesdays, Alex was mentioning how the youngsters today only play videos.  Apparently pre kindergarten, Alex was working in the tobacco fields. One can tell he is a very special person and Hamilton County should be very proud of one of their own    I have found that those children who are required to work and have duties at an early age, turn out to be the best of the best in life and that describes Alex.       Karin for the blog
