The kids at Harrison Elementary will be zipping around on a new track this year because the PTA donated the nearly $17,000 to pave the track that before now had only been gravel and dirt.

The track has been deteriorating over the past few years, said Stephane Tumlin, co-president of Harrison Elementary’s Parent Teacher Association.

Previously made of gravel, the loop that circles near the playground and practice fields was laden with potholes.

Tumlin said the track gets a lot of use. During the schoolday, the kids use the track, especially during P.E.

After school hours, parents often walk the track while children are at football practice.

“If we all do a little, it becomes a lot: if we all do our part it becomes huge!”
Those are the words of Pastor Don Combs and the impetus for Church On Fire’s Highlighters’ annual program through which hundreds of Southwest School District kids receive the necessary supplies to start the new academic year.
Highlighters, in the parking lot of the church, in the strip mall off Harrison Avenue, was packed full of  kids and parents Friday evening, Aug. 8, in a time when the program is needed more than when started eight years ago.

Tight management and increased income has put Harrison in a better fiscal position through the first half of this year compared to mid-year 2013.

Nevertheless, fiscal officials insist the services levy for fire and police must be passed to prevent more layoffs and maintain top-notch protection.

The city likely will end the year with no income, as budgeted, said Mayor Joel McGuire.

You’re invited to a party!

Sgt. Maj. Woody Wilson, 40, son of Jerry and Jean Wilson, Harrison, will spend about 10 days in his hometown as he awaits transfer to Fort Drum, N.Y.

Jerry Wilson, commander of the Harrison VFW, Campbell, Road, welcomes the public to say “hey” to their son, who was promoted recently by the Army to sergeant-major E9, senior NCO of a battalion.

There is no charge at the door of the Legion, where the celebration will take place Friday, Aug. 22, beginning at 7 p.m.

Woody has visited Harrison once since he was injured in a Jeep accident 2003, said his dad.

“We would like to have as many people who remember Woody, and have been asking a lot of questions of what he is doing,” said Wilson.

“There is no charge. We don’t want any gifts. We would just like to have friendships.”

Woody is a 23-year Army veteran. He has been stationed in Hawaii.
